Could be a small rock caught between the rotor and rotor dust shield but I would have thought a good bet would be worn brake pads.
Could also be a bad wheel bearing.
If the noise is coming from the back then it could be worn brake shoes or broken shoe hardware.
Try to find out what corner the noise is coming from and pull the wheel and have a look.
