9th Wonder Decodes Jay-Z’s “Threat” (Video)
Ten years after the fact, 9th Wonder decodes “Threat” off Jay-Z’s The Black Album. Many of you probably know the story, but 9th breaks it down here in much finer detail. Jay recruited 9th to do beats for The Black Album because of Questlove and Young Guru’s encouragement. What ended up happening was that Jay, after already having listening to completed beats from 9th, asked him to chop up R. Kelly’s “A Woman’s Threat”. He actually still has the original FL Studio session, which is pretty cool.
