Phonte Ft. Carlitta Durand: Take On Me (A-Ha Cover)
From: ? (?, ?)

Little Brother the duo (rappers only), a refashioned version of Little Brother the trio (rappers + 9th Wonder = rapper’s delight) is not “evolution” as Phonte Coleman asserted. I suggest that the duo is delving into a hurried lollipop (radio-ready) banality. I salute to their group death that their trio catalog is invaluable and their dissolution has not been idle.

Below are excerpts from an interview with A&E’s, Campus Echo Online Rashaun Rucker of North Carolina Central University, Remainder of One, February 10, 2000, Vol. 91, Issue 5, asked, Chapel Hill, Cat's Cradle, rap duel winner, Phonte Coleman:

Why did you deem it necessary to return to the duel this year?
Honestly man, I wasn’t even gonna enter this Duel. But on the day of the contest, Financial Aid fronted on my refund check and it pissed me off. So I entered at the last minute out of anger, you know. I guess it helped (laughs).

During the rap battle with MC Keyshawn the topic switches to: "If I Was a Penis" and
Phonte delivers:
"You don’t understand my onomatopoeia/ If I was a dick/ I’d squirt in your face/ and give you gonorrhea."
…Phonte got his money.

Relative Phonte’s A-Ha's pop classic Take On Me with help from Carlitta Durand courtesy of Spine Magazine when asked: “Who influences your music?” Mr. Coleman answered:
Back in the day it was artists like Run D.M.C. and Big Daddy Kane, but now it’s cats like Pharoahe Monch, Mos Def and The Roots ... and a lot of rock and alternative groups like Radiohead, Dave Matthews and Portishead.
