When Phonte announced at the beginning of the month that his much anticipated solo debut Charity Starts At Home will be dropping on September 27, mixed reactions where felt. Core fans (hip hop heads) said they don't want to hear the singing Phonte and others like myself, who appreciate his versatility expect a combination of both. Well to please both audiences, and smear a shit stain on the lips who said he went soft, Mr. Coleman "took it back to when he be in the park and rhymes 'til he couldn't see in the dark" over a fresh 9th Wonder vibe with his first single, "Not Here Anymore." He brings along the syllable sensei, Elzhi who always rips to close out this gem. And for those who were looking for Drake to complete the trio formed on Think Good Thoughts, you can only guess what the story was there. Would've been interesting to hear, but Phonte relies on merit and not on a big name feature. Either way, enjoy this banger and make sure to support Charity Starts At Home on 9/27.
