In the wake of Little Brother, you’ve likely heard about Phonte Coleman’s solo rap career and his soul sophistication with The Foreign Exchange. And Little Brother’s onetime in-house producer, 9th Wonder, continues to build a massive résumé of credits and accomplishments, recently becoming a hip-hop archive fellow at Harvard. But Rapper Big Pooh has been busy too, releasing the second volume of his Fat Boy Fresh album series late last year. Though occasionally defeatist and somewhat bitter, Pooh’s best material still moves with the same childlike enthusiasm of his early successes, as though he were a young man stepping into the bright world for the first time, microphone in hand. Under his given name of Thomas Jones, he’s also generated a second reputation as an NBA scribe for independent website Rant Sports. Buy him a drink, and ask him about Pau Gasol. With Chaundon, Lute, Forever FC, DJ Skillz and Joe Scudda. friday, feb. 8, at Kings. $10/10 p.m.
