Take my money, my house, and my car…I gotta have this!
Get your money ready Nov 13th Murs & 9th Wonder team up to deliver The Final Adventure for all of our listening pleasure! As the title suggests it will be their fifth and final collaborative album. We were quite excited to find that Jamla Bgirl Rapsody holds the only feature on the album; which is appropriately titled Get Together (ohhh I can’t WAIT to hear THAT!)
1. Get Together feat. Rapsody
2. Dance With Me
4. Holding Hands
5. Walk Like A Woman
6. Tale of Two Cities
7. Funeral For A Killer
8. Better Way
9. Wherever You Are
10. It’s Over
When I saw that Murs and 9th Wonder had a track on their “Fornever” album entitled, “I Used to Love H.E.R. (Again),” I think I was stunned.
As I said before, Common’s song is my #2 hip-hop song of all time. It’s a classic. Some classics should never even attempt to be remade. However, I was not horrified at the thought of this particular remake because of whose hands it was in. I’m a big Murs fan. He’s my best friend according to my t-shirt :-) 9th Wonder is a legendary producer. (I’m pretty sure he’s in my top 5. I’ve only created a top 3 list of all time. If we’re talking about living producers only, he’s definitely in my top 4 then.) Let me get back on track…
I remember playing it for the first time and not knowing how I felt. I didn’t know what to say. Of course, I had to play it again, and I had to hold my head. Not that I had a doubt, but they did this song justice. I love how Murs kept the original lyrics and updated a few lines.
I’ve been trying to learn Murs’ version, but Comm’s version has been ingrained in me for so long that I can’t help but spit his lyrics while Murs is saying something else.
Yep, I still love H.E.R.
