For this week, Grammy-winning rapper Rhymefest sat down with SOHH to talk about everything, from what happened to the Chi-Town movement to his thoughts on Little Brother putting out their final album together. In this fourth installment, Fest weighs in on seeing Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh part ways.

I've talked to Little Brother about their "break-up." At the end of the day, they're both my brothers and it's just that they realize they've done as much as they can do with the Little Brother run.

It's like, to me, they have to go off and explore different avenues and transitions of them as artists and as men. Little Brother is like a child that's ready to leave the house. It don't mean "Ah man, it's over!" People thought 9th Wonder leaving Little Brother was a moment where they had to say, "Oh man, they're done." And then they came out with so many dope albums after that.

So now, they have to figure out who they are as individuals. And at the end of the day, you never know. How many times did Michael Jordan retire? [laughs] And then they find that their life experiences can bring them back together but regardless, I totally understand what they're doing because I'm getting ready to go through a transition myself. ---as told to Senior News Writer Cyrus Langhorne
