9th Wonder isn’t the first or last prolific beat constructor to put his chop on the legendary Bobby Womack‘s catalogue of soul-crushing funk. But today he is at the very least our favorite. With the tragic and rather sudden passing of one of soul music’s pioneers and greatest innovators this past Friday, I’m sure we’re not alone in putting one up for the fallen master. Wonder flips Womack’s classics to keep the image and voice of a departed king in the proper place in your heart and mind, as to never forget the immeasurable contributions of the Midwest’s legendary crooner. Pay your own respect to the departed Womack with 9th Wonder’s career-spanning tributary mix below. Read our own tribute to the self-proclaimed “Simple Man” here.
