Little Brother has reunited for their first album in nine years. Phonte and Big Pooh teamed up to release the 15-track May the Lord Watch, which hit streaming services on Tuesday (Aug. 20). The joint project had been kept under wraps since the May announcement of their reconvening — until Monday’s (Aug. 19) reveal that the effort would be dropping at midnight.
“It took us a long time to get it right, but we did,” Pooh wrote via Instagram. “I love the fact we accomplished the goal but it’s the journey that I’ll always cherish the most. We wrote and recorded every song on this album together. We carried each other. We give y’all the album of our careers, May The Lord Watch.”
9th Wonder is noticeably absent from the production side of MTLW, which sees contributions from Justus League collaborator Khrysis, Focus and Nottz, Black Milk, Devin Morrison, Blaaq Gold, King Michael Coy, and Abjo.
Pooh and Phonte previously surprised fans with a reunion at the 2018 Art of Cool Festival in their homestate of North Carolina. 2010’s Leftback was the last release from Little Brother until Tuesday (Aug. 20).
