NEWS: 9th Wonder Releasing 'The Wonder Years' In January

XXL reports that a follow up to the second volume of 9th Wonder's The Dream Merchant is coming in January of 2008 on Asylym Records with features by Talib Kweli, Q-Tip, Mos Def, Little Brother, Erykah Badu and more. He brings up an interesting point below.

"The Wonder Years will unite some of today’s top R&B artists with some of the best MC’s in the game in an effort to reach an older, more mature listener. “You’re going to get some younger people who will enjoy this, but my main demographic is women who have careers, women who like to sit in the house and relax as they listen to it. My album is not for the club. A lot of women my age don’t go out, because they don’t like the music being played. I want my album to be played in the beauty salon or a Coach bag store just as much as anywhere. [...]There’s no music that suits them wholeheartedly, you either have young for the young or old for the old. You still want to hear Hip-Hop, but you want Hip-Hop that’s your age.” Read more here.
