Today we bring y'all another example of a successful HipHop artist who is also independent. For those who don't know Phonte was 1/3 of the mega underground phenom group Little Brother. The other two members Fat Boy Fresh and 9th Wonder went on to have successful solo careers after they broke up as well.
9th Wonder (the Beat Master) went on to produce damn near the entire underground roster and starting an independent record label. Fat Boy Fresh still dropping LP's and touring around the world with his music. Fans (myself included) are still hoping for a Little Brother reunion though.
