No matter the amount of success 9th Wonder manages to achieve yearly, there’s still no slowing his quest to reach even more untouched ground that lay ahead of him. With It’s A Wonderful World Music Group getting their feet wet through his and Rapsody’s projects last year, Big Remo is stepping in for The Away Team to make a bruising impact with weighty bars and tales of taking from the rich with Robin Hood Ree. For all you’s stickler types, discontent with the lack of meat and potatoes in your Hip-Hop broth, take a grain of salt and season your rotation with the real from North Carolina.
The contributions from Bun B, 9th Wonder, Khrysis and more are for the betterment of the project opposed to just random name recognition. You can hear the sense of lyrical urgency in joints like “Grind,” “Side Of The City,” and autobiographical title track where Remo takes you inside his world when things weren’t always so wonderful. Remo doesn’t have to pretend to be authentic. He’s just telling his story.
Bonus: Track 21, live in living color.
