Here’s a breakdown of a gem for your #TBT from one of hip hop’s reigning independent legends.
MURS dropped some insight for y’all in an article with HipHopDX about the song “Bad Man” from one of the collaborative albums he did with 9th Wonder, MURS 3:16 The 9th Edition. As it turns out, when MURS can’t decide what he wants to write about, he’ll go the overkill route and fully explore all options, as he tells DX:
I wrote two songs to that beat that night in the hotel. I wrote one about rappers pretending to be bad men, but they really aren’t—the whole traditional, backpack rapper thing. Then I wrote a song about girls. I was like, “I just wanna rap about girls all the time.” I wrote both songs all the way out with three 16s, and I said, “9th, which one do you want me to do?” He said, “Girls,” and I was like, “Yes!” I was just getting to know him, so I didn’t know if he wanted me to be ripping motherfucker’s heads off and shit.
