While 9th Wonder is presenting the album via his label It's A Wonderful World Music Group, he's only involved on four songs. A large percentage of the songs are by his production team The Soul Council (comprising of Khrysis, Fatin, Amp, E. Jones, Kash and Eric G.). A few of the outside producers are the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League on "It's Like That", Austrailian producer M-Phazes on "Go" and former Roc-A-Fella Records recording engineer Gimel "Young Guru" Keaton on "Girl's Most Wanted". He paints vivid pictures of the street life on the songs "Don't Matter (Over There)", "The Game (Tre 4)", and "Wonderbread" which features an off topic guest verse from David Banner. He trades verses with his mentor 9th Wonder (under the pseudonym 9thmatic) on "Go" as well as the catchy "Woop Woop (Stand Back)". He wishes for peace in his troubled life on "Serenity", while thanking the people in his circle on "Without You".Read more ›

A little bit about me. I'm a huge hip hop fan, been so since 94'. I'm not a snob, I like Gucci as much as I do Immortal Technique and everything in between. I had heard the first single from this album on Nah Right, and thought it was solid, but nothing mind blowing. I decided to give the whole thing a listen just off the strength of 9th wonder. I'm glad I did. A very solid album with strong production from start to finish. Won't be disappointed with this....
Let me start off by saying that 9th Wonder isn't the sole producer of this album although it says "9th Wonder Presents...Big Remo Entrapment". He only has 4 songs, the best being "Go Ladies" This album is a collection of different producers who supply the groundwork for Remo's street wise rap. "Don't Matter (Over There) prod by AMP, is a perfect introduction for those (like myself) don't know who Big Remo is. A head nodder with scratches reminiscent of DJ Premier. The producer who stands out the most to me is Khrysis. He only has 2 songs but they include standouts "What It Takes" & "Entrapment". What I noticed most is Remo's strong storytelling ability. He's not Ghostface, but his flow is so smooth you can follow it from beginning to end. Not all producers on this album work. "Serenity" prod by Eric G is out of place. And the most well known producers on this album, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, should have came harder on "Its Like That". Big Re is not the best lyricist out there, I would put him somewhere between Wale and Jay Electronica, but he can hold his own amongst any mid level rapper.
As a fan of hip hop, I enjoy rap in its truest form. Some people might call it simple but its more complex. Not many new rap artist today can purposely not rhyme about guns and hoes.Read more ›
