|Remix album by 9th Wonder|
|9th Wonder chronology|
Released through internet outlets in 2003, the album began the trend for homemade remix projects, which reached fever pitch with Jay-Z's The Black Album remixes (of which 9th also submitted an entry). It was well received by critics and fans alike for its re-interpretation of what many considered to be a return-to-form album from Nas. In particular, the album is responsible for popularizing remixes of whole albums back-to-front, and also for establishing 9th Wonder amongst the premier league of hip hop producers.
9th Wonder didn't create the mix with a view to generate a buzz or promote his skills saying, "I didn't even think anybody was going to hear it". When asked by HitQuarters what inspired the remix he said: "I think all of us at one point want to hear Nas on something different. His voice is like another instrument on a track."
The album was excellently received, and served as the a catalyst for 9th, sweeping "the industry off their feet".
