      According to Little Brother their last album, “The Minstrel Show,” didn’t do the number they wanted. So Phonte and Pooh told 9th Wonder that they want to rhyme over other people’s beats. They also told Atlantic Records they wre done doing the major label thing and went back to ABB Records. Now they’re gearing up to drop their new album, “Getback,” this fall. The album features production from Hi-Tek, Nottz, Illmind, Mr. Porter and 9th Wonder is still around as well. Lil Wayne, Jozeemo and Darien Brockington also make appearances.

       “I think this is the closest we could get to the feeling and energy we had when we made our first record” Pooh said in a statement. “Back in 2001 no one knew who we were or that we were even making music. Fast forward to 2007, fresh off Atlantic, the three man group now a duo, people either counted us out or don’t know what to expect anymore. That gave us the freedom to be just that, free.”

       The album is set to drop on September 25, but there’s no word on a first single or video.
