As much as I’d love for this to be the greatest basketball player ever to have Puerto Rican roots making a song about Murphy’s Law, the belief that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, it’s not. “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” pretty much sums up the Knicks as a franchise as a whole. Even though Carmelo Anthony isn’t the one behind the mic on this new single, the alternate is pretty damn good.
Melo, an emcee from Chicago, teams up with citymate Ju for “Murphy’s Law,” where they analyze the positives just in case something goes wrong. They express that even though shit most likely will go wrong, they’ve got each other and their music to make them happy.
I’m really digging this alt-rap sound Ju has surrounded himself with. “BURGUNDY,” a song about life constantly shitting on you, stays in rotation. He seems to find the positive in everything, knowing he needs something to stay afloat when life brings you down.
