9 Wonders (NYOil verses 9th Wonder) The Digital EP dropped back in 2008. I remember I was really excited to hear this project because I was into a lot of NYOil’s music at the time and because he was rapping over production from one of my favorite producers, 9th Wonder. Out of the nine tracks on the EP, only four of them were actually from previous studio albums than 9th produced on.
