One of the greatest moments in hip hop history took place in 2003. Yes, the year of 2003 was when 50 Cent claimed his spot in the rap game, but fans of “real” hip hop note the year as when Murs and 9th Wonder officially united. Over the course of nine years, spanning four albums, the two hip hop figures made classic music.
Uniting California and North Carolina, Murs and 9th Wonder made music not previously anticipated in the rap game. Redefining what is considered hip hop music, Murs and 9th Wonder built a large, cult, fan base. With their music being like a treasured film series, fans eagerly anticipated each release.
Fans heard Murs and 9th Wonder for the first time in 2004 on their Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition, which received critical-acclaim. Over the next eight years, more classics came in the form of Murray’s Revenge, Sweet Lord, Fornever, and they wrapped things up this year with The Final Adventure. Every other year, though, Murs and 9th Wonder delivered new material, holding fans over for two years each time.
However, Murs and 9th Wonder decided to call it quits while interest in their series still remained high and while they were still friends. But, over the course of these nine years, there were numerous classic moments and countless classic songs.
