God's Stepson

God's Stepson is an album by hip hop producer 9th Wonder (formerly one third of the group Little Brother). It was an unofficial remix of Nas's God's Son album of 2002.

Background

Released through internet outlets in 2003, it was the first in the trend of homemade remix projects, which reached fever pitch with Jay-Z's The Black Album remixes (of which 9th also submitted an entry). It was well received by critics and fans alike for its re-interpretation of what many considered to be a return-to-form album from Nas. In particular, the album is responsible for the popularity of remixing whole albums back-to-front, and also for establishing 9th Wonder amongst the premier league of hip hop producers.

The album was excellently received, and served as the a catalyst for 9th, sweeping "the industry off their feet".
