This past March marked the fifteenth anniversary of Murs & 9th Wonder’s partnership, as their debut collaborative project, Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition (which was released on Def Jux) exceptional introduction laid the groundwork for the strong bond that has been cultivated since; and also for a lot of great music.
Over the course of the last fifteen-years, Murs & 9th have been prolific as a duo. Since Murs 3:16, they have released five additional albums and though their last collaborative effort, The Final Adventure (2012), hinted that the end of the series was upon us, both of these legends reunite for a victory lap.
The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over (the title references the two poems that are attributed to Greek poet Homer) is the final installment of Murs & 9th Wonder’s epic journey and it will be released on 7-19-2019 via EMPIRE.
Today, the duo released the first visual, “Night Shift,” from their forthcoming project via an exclusive premiere with Billboard along with a Q&A.
“It is an honor and a privilege to still be working with one the greatest producers of all time,” Murs added to Billboard about 9th Wonder. “This time around, I was blessed not only to work with the Soul Council, which consists of some of best producers in the game, but names like Nottz, Eric G, Khrysis, and Kash.” The latter team was also behind one of Murs’ favorite albums of the past decade, Rapsody’s Laila’s Wisdom.
The North Carolina producer echoes the sentiments from his friend and partner in rhyme, but takes it a step further when it comes to the bond that they’ve forged over the past decade and a half. “It’s not about Murs and I releasing new music, it’s a family affair at this point,” 9th Wonder commented to Billboard. “I think it’s more about that than anything.”
