Ready to jump into the Wayback Machine? Urban Mystic‘s last Booth feature, released in January of 2009, found the then-SRC/Universal signee revising Sam Cooke’s classic A Change Is Gonna Come to “A Change Has Come” in honor of incoming President Barack Obama. Though the singer seems to have done just fine for himself in the meantime (he’s now signed to SoBe Entertainmen), he’s well aware that life in the streets hasn’t changed for the better; thus, he’s made his latest promo single,Money Is My Wife, an anthem for those who must stack paper to survive. Over Dr. Zeus’ hip-hop-infused string-piano production, the gruff-voiced crooner is joined by three emcees with an equally fervent devotion to the Almighty Dollar; Lox colleagues Jadakiss and Styles P. come together to flaunt their realness on the front, and UGK alum-turned-solo heavyweight Bun B gives those who’d have have believe that money is the root of all evil a reality check on the back. Has this determination-drenched cut left you amped and ready to get your paper up? Then keep it locked you-know-where for all the latest news and tunes from Urban Mystic.
