This week I'm offering a couple of tracks from indie hip-hop MC Murs, taken from his excellent 2004 album Murs 3:16 - The Ninth Edition. Both of these songs deal with women's attraction to the bad boys, told from two different viewpoints.
The first is "The Pain" and could easily be classified as the hip-hop version of Sad Bastard Music. Choice lyrics: "Cause I'm tired of getting shot down, put down and dissed/I wanna be picked up, held tight and kissed/But things like these don't happen to dudes like me/Because I'm more Coldplay than I am Ice-T".
Next up is "Bad Man," which examines the reality of trying to get into a relationship with the titular type of guy. Choice lyrics: " All I wanted was to fuck, from the start I never lied/Now it hurts my heart to have to see you cry/Let you know from the jump, I was that type of guy/Now you all on my voice mail askin' me why".
Leave me a comment requesting one or both songs and I'll e-mail them to you.
