Freeway and Jake One, B. Dolan and Alias, Murs and 9th Wonder, I can’t help but feel like the age of the one producer, one rapper album is enjoying a bit of a renaissance. Continuing the same excellence they displayed on previous collabo effort Murray’s Revenge, west coast underground stalwart Murs and North Carolina producer extraordinaire 9th Wonder are preparing to release their new album Fornever, and to get the world - and the Booth - properly excited they’re unveiling the previously unreleased 3:16 pt.2 (which, I assume but can’t confirm, was originally recorded during the Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition sessions). In typical Murs fashion, the heavily dreaded emcee drops nearly three straight minutes of high-caliber flows while 9th delivers yet another soul-meets-boom-bap beat sure to leave aspiring beatmakers jealous. What, like you expected anything less from a duo like this? The producer/emcee renaissance will assuredly hit a high note when Fornever hits eardrums everywhere March 30.
