True School Presents... JAMS


Editorial Review

DJ 9th Wonder is no longer a member of the hip-hop group Little Brother, but he's been keeping busy supplying other artists with beats, teaching a college course on hip-hop and pushing his True School movement. True School is a series of events for Gen-X hip-hoppers whose musical identity tenuously connects to the Tom Joyner generation and who are diametrically opposed to the favorites of the "106 & Park" set. A True School jam is a grab bag of golden age hip-hop, new jack swing and movies like "House Party" and "Do The Right Thing." When 9th brings it to D.C., he teams up with the highly capable DJ Cuzzin B. Be advised that no selections by Plies, The Dream or any teen hip-hop sensation with an instructional dance record will be spun.
