9th Wonder always injects soul into his music and adds historic perspectives in and outside the classroom. Bladey Mae stands as his latest beat tape, named after his grandmother on his father’s side, Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit.
According to the producer, her nickname stemmed from the blades holstered in her purse kept at the ready during turbulent times in the segregated south. She died before 9th hit the scene but her memory lives on with his family and in these 73 beats…yup, you read it right. 9th packed 73 beats at $9.99 in honor of his grandma.
The project serves as a heck of a gesture to his late grandmother and the sample listen leaves little doubt about the nominal fee. Let them bang below if you need extra insurance before buying the project here.
