Interview by: Martin Bauman Having earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Urban/Alternative Performance" as part of The Foreign Exchange, and recognition from the likes of Pete Rock and Ali Shaheed Muhammad throughout his career, it seems there's little left for Phonte to prove. Rather than fall into complacency, however, the Little Brother emcee sounds as inspired as ever on his latest solo effort, Charity Starts At Home. According to the Greensboro, North Carolina emcee/singer, he's "just getting started." The Come Up Show caught up with Phonte ahead of his show in Toronto this Saturday, and he opened up about his time in Little Brother, his work with Nicolay as The Foreign Exchange, and his solo album, among other things. Hit the skip to read the interview.
New Tigallo! Phonte just dropped the visuals for the 9th Wonder-produced "The Life Of Kings", off his solid latest album Charity Starts At Home. Phonte's mom steals the show in this one, making a guest appearance and spitting Evidence's verse. This comes as the third video off the album, after "Dance In The Reign" and my personal favourite "The Good Fight". Be sure to also check out Chedo's recent interview with Phonte and 9th Wonder. Check out the visuals for "The Life Of Kings" below.
