    Little Brother Hits The Road With High Ratings Wednesday - August 24, 2005 [b:4392aa08e8]by Carl Chery[/b:4392aa08e8] In support of their highly anticipated and acclaimed forthcoming release, The Minstrel Show, Little Brother has hit the road for a North American tour. The tour kicked off in New Orleans' House of Blues yesterday and is slated to conclude in the trio's home state at Carrboro, North Carolina's Cat's Cradle October 7th. LB is also scheduled for two Canadian dates in Toronto, Ontario's Reverb September 10th and Montreal, Quebec's Foufounes Electriques September 19th. LB is a road veteran. To date, the group has toured with Kanye West, Gangstarr, Dilated Peoples, The Roots and Floetry among others. Following the critically-acclaimed The Listening, 9th Wonder, Phonte and Big Pooh have cooked up another highly heralded LP in The Minstrel Show. The CD received a classic 10 rating in Scratch Magazine and an "XL" rating in XXL Magazine. The CD has also caused controversy with it's a contentious rating scandal at The Source Magazine. According to reports, former Source Editor-In-Chief, Joshua "Fahiym" Ratcliffe resigned when his 4.5 mics rating for The Minstrel Show was changed to a 4 mics rating by Chief Brand Executive Raymond "Benzino" Scott and CEO Dave Mays. Little Brother's The Minstrel Show is slated to hit stores September 13th.
