DON’T SLEEP: 9th Wonder x Mark Anthony Neal x James Peterson “Sampling Soul: Deconstructing “Illmatic”” [LECTURE/DISCUSSION]

In 2010, 9th Wonder & Mark Anthony Neal co-taught a class at Duke University in North Carolina called “Sampling Soul” which dealt with the aesthetics, understanding, complexities and techniques involved in creating sample based Hip Hop. This particular class was a 90 minute discussion about the 1994 classic LP “Illmatic” and it’s influence on Hip Hop as a whole. James Peterson was a contributor to the Michael Eric Dyson book “Born To Use Mics” which deconstructs the album “Illmatic”. This is required viewing for anyone who gives a damb about Hip Hop, production, or just quality music in general you should watch this. I can’t wait until 9th Wonder shows up to begin his fellowship @ Harvard with Tahero. Don’t sleep…

Back in Spring 2011, 9th Wonder & LRG first showed the trailer for the upcoming documentary detailing a year in the life of producer/professor/Hip Hop cultural advocate 9th Wonder. I missed when 9th Wonder came to Harvard & screened it and I’ve been slapping myself about it ever since. Now Kenneth Price & 9th Wonder want to shoot a follow up film called “The Harvard Fellow” about 9th Wonder’s year long fellowship where he’ll spend a year living in the Cambridge/Metro Boston area. If you support/donate to the Kickstarter you will receive a copy of “The Wonder Year”. So get to donatin‘. Here are the first 8 (why not 9?) minutes of said documentary so don’t sleep…
