Fastlife Music to Release Little Brother's "The Chittlin' Circuit (Version 1.5)" on June 7TH

The Album Features Guests Kanye West, Big Daddy Kane, and More

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2005 -- Fastlife Music announces the release of "The Chittlin' Circuit (Version 1.5)" by Little Brother on June 7th. "The Chittlin' Circuit (Version 1.5)" contains cuts featuring some of the hottest names in hip hop, including Kanye West, Big Daddy Kane, Young Guru and Consequences, PLUS unreleased and hard-to-find tracks from the crew of 9th Wonder, Phonte, Big Pooh, and The Justus League.

"The Chitlin Circuit (Verion 1.5)" bridges the gap between Little Brother's debut album "The Listening" and their forthcoming major label sophomore LP "The Minstrel Show."

Little Brother was featured as One of the Top Most Anticipated Artists of 2005 by XXL Magazine. The Durham, NC, trio makes music that brilliantly splits the line between art and commercialism, all while maintaining their fun-loving hip hop purist stance.

The group members MC's Phonte and Big Pooh, along with DJ/ producer 9th Wonder (JayZ, Destiny's Child), met in 1998 while attending North Carolina Central University. After noticing that they shared some of the same musical tastes (The Roots, Led Zeppelin, Wes Montgomery), the fellas formed an instant friendship and vowed to help each other develop their careers.
