Back in the ‘90s philosophical trio Biggie, Diddy, and Mase helped us to understand one of life’s most fundamental concepts when they said “Mo’ money, mo’ problems.” On Bun B & GLC’s latest track, Happiness Over Riches, the UGK vet and Chi-town native pick things up where their predecessors left off, further exploring the problems that can come with excess cash. While both have a long history of microphone excellence, here the two emcees’ verses are arguably outshined by guest vocals from BJ The Chicago Kid, while a The Weathermen-produced melody, which could best be described as a more dramatic version of the Shaft theme song, hums in the background. Somewhat disappointingly, the last minute of the track is occupied by a monologue that could have easily been replaced by a third verse. Does the shift to spoken-word derail the record? You decide. Happiness will be featured on the RubyHornet.com compilation EP The Closed Sessions: (Vol. 1), set to drop in March.
