Getback is the third studio album from Little Brother, released on October 23, 2007. On October 12, Phonte leaked the album himself to


The group has confirmed the involvement of several outside producers, in addition to 9th Wonder. These include Nottz (who previously collaborated with the group on the Justus League album, Soldiers of Fortune), Illmind (who has contributed to their mixtape albums), Hi-Tek, and Denaun Porter.

Rapper Big Pooh was quoted as saying:
