On paper, red and blue are just two primary colors. In reality, they are two of the most powerful colors in the world today. From politics to the streets, these colors have inspired countless lines, verses, and songs, for better and for worse. Underground hip-hop kings MURS and 9th Wonder meticulously paint this scene on their latest single, Tale of Two Cities. MURS jump starts the mellow, brass peaking 9th Wonder production, repeating “There’s two sides to my city, a red side and a blue side to my city / Too many died in my city, imagine if we all unified in my city,” followed by his factual take on the ugly truth. Although red and blue may be different on paper, once the two inks cross paths, the colors bleed into one large pool. Embrace what this duo has been doing for years by pre-ordering the deluxe version of their forthcoming album, The Final Adventure, out November 13.
