Murs, 9th Wonder & The Soul Council: Night Shift / Ga$ Station Gucci Belt

Murs and 9th Wonder have been in the lab together again, working on their seventh collaboration since they first rolled out Murs 3:16 – The 9th Edition, back in 2004. This week we were treated to the first video from the album, which features two tracks – Night Shift and Ga$ Station Gucci Belt. The former is produced by Kash of The Soul Council, who also provide beats for the project, with 9th himself on production on the latter. Two very different tracks, which make me very intrigued to hear how the full album plays out. The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over is due for release on 19 July.

Ocean Drive is the latest single to be taken from the album, with Khrysis handling production duties and a great feature from Philly legend, Musiq Soulchild. The All is available to buy now over at the Duck Down store.

Black Thought: Streams of Thought Vol. 1 (Stream)

For almost as long as Black Thought has been rapping, his fans – and pretty much the entire hip hop world – have been clamoring for a solo project. Thought had begun working on a solo album a while back, but it was never given life and the idea of us ever getting to hear one from him became one of hip hop’s seemingly unattainable dreams. Even when it was announced a few weeks ago that he and 9th Wonder were working on a project together, it was half-jokingly assumed we’d never get to hear it either.
