Murs & Tabi Bonney: Hip-Hop and Love

August 10, 2011

Song is about two weeks old with average lyrics from both artists.  Unoriginal concept but I dig the beat.  Kind of reminds me of Life Under the Scope and is making me look forward to the Murs and Ski Beatz collabo, especially since Ski did so well with Curren$y’s Pilot Talk 1 and 2.

6.5/10

Yo evypoo!!!! Remember this.  It was our 5 borough recovery song.

MURS vs. Blue Sky Black Death – Can It Be (EvanAwake Remix)

January 24, 2011

Lots to like about this mash.  Vocals from Murs “Can It Be” (which had a great MJ sample in the original) over BSBD’s “Days are Years” which, if you havent heard them, I’d describe as the hip-hop flavored version of Explosions in the Sky.*  Apparently EvanAwake has done an entire mashup album similar to this, which I will most likely download immediately.

*and if you havent heard them, then cot damn you are missing out.  basically if they are playing in the background, they can make the most trivial & mundane moments in your life feel cinematic.

Murs & 9th Wonder f. Kurupt – Live From Roscoe’s

December 6, 2010

People are starting to create their 2010 best of’s, and I’m not seeing any love for this one on hip-hop lists.  The Murs/9th albums may be getting a little formulaic at this point (this is the fourth one, they’re all ten tracks long), but you can’t deny the output.  Funny how nobody gives Murs props for being one of the first “everyman” rappers that are popping up left and right now.  This track has an awesome laid-back westcoast vibe, and Kurupt and Murs are a perfect juxtaposition – Kurupt going on about how he’s going to kill you and Murs talking about eating at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles.  No meat cause I’m still on my veggie shit.  Possibly my favorite hip-hop track of the year.
