While still touring and promoting his most recent The Foreign Exchange LP, Leave it All Behind, Little Brother's Phonte Coleman is somehow finding time to churn out all sorts of other projects. Whether he's hosting his Raleigh dance night, serenading over a joyful Jazzanova track or guest-emceeing on a R&B record from two rising soul vocalists (Anthony David and Algebra Blessett), Coleman—who will also be featured on the upcoming The Roots album, How I Got Overremains one of the Triangle's busiest, most in-demand artists.

We figured we'd keep you up to date just in case you aren't doing your fair share of Twitter stalking:  Via I'm Flashy, here's a brand new track featuring Coleman, entitled "True Love" and from Connecticut emcee Apathy's upcoming Wanna Snuggle LP.  Apathy is mostly known for his collaborative effort with Jedi Mind Tricks, Army of The Pharaohs. Here, Phonte's subject matter is women and their misdirected love-affair with hip-hop, or, as he addresses, "Sex and the City hoes" and "Raphael 'Saad-idy' hoes".  Leave it up to Mr. Coleman to form labels like this one...
