Blackout Top News

This is some good news as we go into 2011. Phonte and 9th Wonder have squashed their beef after a long time. Here’s what Phonte had to say via his Twitter account:

Took 4 years, 2 plates of food and 6 hrs. of convo, but we squashed it. I appreciate the love for me and @9thwondermusic, but us mending our rift had nothing to do with music and everything to do with manhood.

We may collaborate in time, but this is not the start of a LB reunion as neither of us have interest in doing so. Sorry to disappoint. Our friendship began as Phonte Coleman and Patrick Douthit long before a ‘LB’ or ’9th Wonder’ existed. This was about rebuilding that bond.

So in closing, happy new year to all our supporters past and present. Feels great to start the year on a positive note. One love.
