As perhaps the current hardest working man in hip-hop, 9th Wonder’s name has already been attached to several high profile releases in 2005, including albums with Buckshot, Jean Grae, Little Brother, Big Pooh of LB and his work with Destiny’s Child and Memphis Bleek. Yet, 9th Wonder still took time out of his busy schedule to speak on his recent work with North Carolina’s own Splash, who drops "The Ripple Effect" on September 20th 2005.

"He was like the last local artist I wanted to mess with," said 9th. "I knew that after working with Jay-Z on The Black Album, things wouldn’t be the same for me, but I made my decision that I wanted to work with him (Splash). The same can be said for The A.L.L.I.E.S, who I’m also working with." And as the story goes, right after 9th’s big Black Album gig hit, he liked Splash so much that he said that Splash would be the last local (North Carolina) artist that he’d produce for (for cheap, that is).

9th explained that although Splash was still a virtual unknown, his dedication proved the recording process worthwhile. "He was driving three hours every weekend to meet up. He seemed really hungry and that’s part of the reason why I wanted to work with him. A lot of cats will act like they are hungry, but will never show up, Splash wasn’t like that. He didn’t waste my time, he wanted to get it done," said 9th.

Splash’s The Ripple Effect includes nine tracks produced by 9th Wonder, with additional production and guest support from the Justus League’s Khrysis, and L.E.G.A.C.Y and also guest spots from Jean Grae and Supastition.
