Later today, Phonte and 9th Wonder will be a part of the Red Bull Music Academy Session in Philadelphia, joined by soul artist Jesse Boykins III and Rich Medina. The Red Bull Music Academy is a very dope concept, exposing individuals to various musical workshops and festivals, bridging gaps and giving those involved a communal feel. To show the vibe associated with RBMA, here is one from the archives (2006 to be exact). Thanks to my good friend MJ, I'm posting this dope look into the lecture series component of RBMA. Phonte, being the cool as ice character he is, gives a unique perspective on his Little Brother music, along with a comedic side that is his and his alone. The video is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes long, and it is well worth every minute. Take a look, and spread the word about the Red Bull Music Academy. If you can, venture to Philly at Sigma Sound Studios (made famous by the Legendary Roots Crew), located at 212 N. 12th Street. It will be well worth the short drive up 95 North for my B-more/DC fam. Here is a link to the RBMA info for this evening: http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com/events/rbma-session-philadelphia. Also utilize the RBMA site for more information about application/registration for a dynamic music experience. One Love!
