albums. Harking back to the back template of just a rapper (Murs) & producer (the 9th wonder), they strip back on the flashy bravado and thug stories and produce a rap album more akin to introspective singer/songwriters.
Murs isn't looking to use this record to make amends for his life or the things he's done in his time, the stories here are of a gangsters daily life. but told from the perspective of an ordinary man/hustler, trying to make
sense of his way of life. Murs himself likens his personality more "Coldplay Than Ice-T".
And what follows is a (albeit Short), album of semi-interlinked
stories, told from the perspective of someone not completely at easy with his lifestyle.
Producer 'the 9th wonder', is something of a minor Revelation, by largely ignoring loud, beat heavy arrangements, and composing a series of tracks loosely based around samples of dusty classic soul and 70's funk.
(think 'Kayne west' style sampled arrangements). and its this production that adds to the subdued nature of the tracks. And gives the lyrics more substance & emotional attachment.
Those expecting the lyrics to have been 'watered down' due to the
introspective nature of the record, will be glad to hear that this is a harsh and unflinching collection of stories being relayed here. Murs doesn't shy away from looking at the material in a Cold, disinchanted and uncompromising
fashion.Read more ›
