9th Wonder Says Producers Are Like a Brotherhood

May 2, 2012

9th Wonder gives a thoughtful interview while talking about his personal brand, production as a brotherhood, and the importance of maintaining a regional sound and identity.

The ones that really sound like where they’re from or even try to create a sound for where they live, I think those are the ones that last a very long time.

Producer are like a brotherhood.

I wish more producers and artists were like 9th. Being humble and willing to share knowledge is such an important and overlooked part of any culture. Dope video

Producers are definitely like a brotherhood and 9th Wonder really understands the business well. It is also really important to maintain a regional identity with a sound that reflects where you came from. Listeners relate to it and it also creates a personal brand for the producer and musician to reflect their region.

hell no, if you from the south doesn’t mean you have to make Dirty South Trap beats.
I’m from Holland and I make Soulful Beats.
Soul is black afro-american music and i’m a white caucasion from Holland.

Like they say: “It’s not where you from, it’s where you at.”

Hmmm interesting…so is it still a brotherhood when you have dope female producers. Women are still being left out. #fail

While I agree that you can definitely make beats and tunes in any style no matter where you’re from and achieve just as much success, he’s probably right about people having a bit of an edge if they’re making music which is associated with their location.

Have to be PC to include all the sisters who produce (myself included) — producers are a family :-)

Music is music, it’s a feeling. Eminem is an american caucasian who grew up listening to afro american rapmusic and his own music is just like it, why? Cause that’s what he loves and probably listened to day in and day out !!
Music is in the heart not in a location. kinda like tarzan growin up with the lions, human beings adapt to their suroundings and mimic that 100%. So whether i’m sitting in Holland listing to my favorite music and adapting to it or sitting in America ‘going through that same process , i will likely turn out to be the same in terms of musical development…
