Even though he produced three beats for “Duckworth,” 9th Wonder had a realization during our interview. Three samples, three genres, three generations– Kendrick Lamar intentionally wove “threes all the way across.”

9th Wonder Drops a 46-Track Instrumental Album ‘Zion IV’

Featuring flips of classics from Stevie Wonder, DRAM, DeBarge, and more.

9th Wonder has returned with a new installment of his ongoing Zion beat tape series.

Standing 46-tracks tall, Zion IV features an expansive collection of the producer’s classic and modern soul flips, including reworks of a live Stevie Wonder set, DRAM and SZA’s “Caretaker,” as well as DeBarge’s “I Like It.” Landing almost a year to the day since Zion III, the new project arrives on the tail-end of a year that saw two collaborative albums with Murs, as well as Rapsody‘s stellar third studio album, Eve, on which he handled production for 7 of its 16 tracks.
