A routine police stop for a black man in America can be anything but routine, even if your super-producer 9th Wonder.
While en route from the A3C Music festival in Atlanta, 9th Wonder along with his assistant Tia and artist Rapsody were pulled over by police for what 9th calls doing 69 (maybe 70) in a 65 MPH lane.
9th Wonder, who has been responsible for countless classics in hip-hop, and is also known for being a pretty smart dude, gives a detailed account of what a police stop for a black man can be. The Harvard Fellow and Lecturer took to his Facebook page to give a detailed account of what happens when you’re driving while black.
Thankfully no one was hurt and 9th Wonder along with his assistant and Rapsody were able to head home without incurring any severe police harassment or worse.
