Watch The ‘May the Lord Watch: The Little Brother Story’ Documentary

We missed posting this, but during the Thanksgiving holiday, Little Brother released their documentary May the Lord Watch: The Little Brother Story for free on YouTube. The doc covers the group’s beginnings, breakup, and reunion with their album May the Lord Watch. I remember seeing the trailer for this a year or so ago, and I’m happy it’s up for the world to see.

May the Lord Watch is the definitive story of Little Brother, the North Carolina rap group composed of rappers Phonte, Big Pooh, and (formerly) producer 9th Wonder, the underground legends that bridged the gap between The Roots and Kendrick, Tribe and Cole, De La and Drake. The film follows the rise, breakup, and reunion of the preeminent 2000s rap group, but the heart of the documentary lies in the unfolding relationship between members Phonte and Big Pooh, which begins at the Durham HBCU North Carolina Central University, strains while coming of age together in the music industry, and resolves with an enduring friendship as the two men reunite and make their 2019 album May the Lord Watch.
