Phonte Is 'Not Here' To Play Around

"Yes Phontigga spit Amazon flame and 9th rekindle it."

That line from Phonte's debut solo single "Not Here Anymore" pretty much sums up my feelings about it. Phonte promised that he'd be delivering heat on his solo record and damn if he didn't deliver! Crafted over 9th Wonder's expertly flipped sample of Rose Royce's "Love Don't Live Here Anymore," Mr. Coleman is laser-focused on "Not Here" and showing that Phonte the Rapper is alive and well. Tiggalo and 9th have always had a great chemistry, and it's nice to see that it hasn't diminished in the time that they've been apart. Elzhi, fresh from this year's Elmatic mixtape, didn't come to play around either. He breaks his foot off in the anchor verse with the same hunger he brought to his Nas tribute. If September 27th's Charity Starts At Home sounds anything like this preview, expect fall to be quite a bit hotter this year.
