Happy Birthday, 9th Wonder

9th

Hip-hop producer/exec/DJ, 9th Wonder, celebrates his 40th birthday today.

From North Carolina, 9th Wonder hit the big time in 2003 when he remixed, and released, an unofficial version of Nas’s song, “God’s Son.” Since then, he has kicked it in to high gear with many solo albums and a ton of collaborative mixtapes and albums.

He has since worked on video games, teaches classes and has been the subject of a documentary. —XXL Staff (@XXL)
