“Little Brother. May The Lord Watch. Midnight,” the post is captioned with. That’s right — the new album is coming tonight.
The album’s unexpected announcement comes shortly after Phonte resurrected UBN, the fictional TV network introduced in Little Brother‘s second album The Minstrel Show, to tease the rap group’s return.
UBN (U Black Niggas Network) was a concept introduced in The Minstrel Show and served as a satire of stereotypical programs and advertisements for black people. The album served as the follow-up to Little Brother’s debut album, The Listening.
Little Brother’s last official album was Leftback in 2010.
