One of Mary J. Blige‘s mid-90’s signature singles was My Life, the stand out title track from her acclaimed second studio album. Believe it or not, but 17 years later - oh, how time flies - the woozy, heavyhearted R&B cut serves as inspiration for rapper Nard Dinero‘s newest song release. On the Charlotte, North Carolina emcee’s My Life, producer Mr. Incredible pairs the Grammy award-winning artist’s vocals with various drum kicks for a super lax production. That is, however, where any similarities between the two songs of the same title end. Instead, Dinero boasts on the various occurrences in his day-to-day life, which include everything from getting high with his girl and skipping class to taking part in a little “extracurricular activity.” I seriously doubt that Mary would approve. My Life will be featured on the DJBooth newcomer’s Value Of Dinero project, which is due out this fall.
