Whatever happened to Nine? Cloud 9 & Nine Livez? This MC with a raspy voice always brought the ruff rhyme mentality. In my opinion his two albums are classics. The combination of gritty lyrics and raw beats made him a triple threat to anyones ears. This is one MC that no one should sleep on.
Here are a couple of videos with tracks from both albums.

Nine - Whutcha Want

Nine - Make Or Take feat. Smooth Da Hustler
