* 6 Hole Records presents the debut album from Rapper Big Pooh titled Sleepers.
* Rapper Big Pooh is one third of the North Carolina based Hip Hop group Little Brother . Diversifying the face of Southern rap and sharpening hip-hop's dull creative edges are Little Brother's main concerns. Their sound lies somewhere between the jazzy, feel-good grooves of A Tribe Called Quest and the yin-yang chemistry of Outkast
* Litle Brother are now signed to Atlantic Records but their debut album The Listening sold 30,000 independently on ABB Records! It has earned widespread acclaim from the critical community and fans include Roots' -uestlove and Pete Rock.
* The Source proclaimed that "The Listening" is "one of the most sonically cohesive hip-hop albums since 'The Blueprint.' It is an entertaining amalgam of beats, rhymes and life that quickly propels Little Brother from apprentice to instructor"
* In 2004, Hall of Justus crew teamed up with the newly formed label 6 Hole Records, to release a series of albums from the crew, including Pooh's soon to be classic Sleepers. Other projects to be released through this partnership include albums from 9th Wonder, The Away Team and L.E.G.A.C.Y. Stay tuned !
* Sleepers features production from Little Brother ' 9th Wonder, who has recently produced for the likes of Jay-Z (Black Album ) , Nas, Destiny's Child, Memphis Bleek, Masta Ace, Murs, Jean Grae .
