You can’t be a fan of New Orleans music without being familiar with Mr Magic; a man who left his mark for the 9th Ward on both No Limit Records & Koch Records in the early 2000’s. His passing, along with his wife’s in March 2013 in a tragic car accident, left a giant hole in the Crescent City’s rap music scene but his influence is still being reflected by NOLA artists to this day.
With a major nod to this most cherished of forbears, Merk The Lyrical Tantrum, so named for his signature rasp & rapid-fire lyrical outbursts, releases the visual to his latest, “I Do It 4 Da 9” featuring Mr Magic himself. A veritable travelogue of New Orleans’ 9th Ward, “I Do It 4 Da 9” incorporates everything that is best about this great city, from the bouncy ass Beat Doctor track to Merk’s speaker-splitting delivery.
Nothing about this video doesn’t scream bounce & it doesn’t matter if you’re a big ol’ booty or the trunk of a candy-painted slab. This song is already a classic in the 9th Ward so if you’re not exhausted by the time this video is over, you are definitely watching it all wrong.
