10 years ago Jay-Z announced The Black Album would be his swan song from the music game. The already enormous hype went even higher when Jigga decided he was going to take one beat from 10 different producers for the project. That part never really panned out but luckily for 9th Wonder, Jay did decide to use the North Carolina’s producer’s expertise. At the time, 9th was still really only known for his work Little Brother and The Justus League.

In the video below, 9th describes the process he went through upon getting that fateful call and flying in to meet with Shawn Carter to prove himself.
