To prep for the release of Grammy award winners David Banner and 9th Wonder's upcoming collaborative album Death Of A Pop Star, the magnetic duo will participate in a live Q & A on Tuesday, June 29th at the 92Y Tribeca in Manhattan. Hot 97 personality Peter Rosenberg will interview both artists and take questions from the audience, similar in format to James Liptons’ famous In The Actor’s Studio show. In the past, Rosenberg has delivered perspectives from the inside the minds of rap greats like Q-Tip, Rawekwon, The Roots, Talib Kweli, and Gang Starr's DJ Premier through his Noisemakers series. Attendees will be treated to the first public listening of Death of Pop Star.

9th Wonder has a history of teaming with legendary emcees and crafting dream projects that have resulted in both critical and commercial success. A producer from North Carolina, 9th Wonder started his career as the main producer for the hip-hop group, Little Brother. Leaving Little Brother after their second album together, The Minstrel Show, 9th Wonder has since become a producer and emcee in his own right. Working with MURS, Nas, Beyonce, Jay-Z and more, 9th Wonder has made a name for himself in the hip-hop world. Also known as his rapper alterego, 9thmatic, 9th Wonder is a modern-day hip-hop renaissance man.
Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi, David Banner has made a name for himself on the hip-hop scene since 2000. Since then, he has released four studio albums and even became a celebrated producer like producing smash hits like T.I.'s "Rubberband Man," and having smash hits of his own like "Get Like Me". David Banner's most recent successes include writing, producing, and arranging (with guidance from Jimmy Smith and The G Team at Chalt Day) the new non-hip hop Gatorade theme song "Evolve," performed by Kermit Quinn. Teaming up with 9th Wonder may seem like an unusual collaboration but as the two talented artists come together, their initial album will leave a deep impression on fans. Death of A Pop Star drops summer 2010 via David Banner's own Big Face Entertainment.
