Mar – “2u4u” (Slum Village Cover) | New Music

As the first variation of 2011, Netherlands-based singer/songwriter Mar pays tribute to the late J. Dilla by covering the Jay Dee-produced ‘2 U 4 U’ originally performed by Slum Village on their sophomore album ‘Fantastic, Vol. 2’. On this version of ‘2u4u’, Mar vocals completely new lyrics over the classic J.Dilla beat and succeeds in taking this already brilliant Hip-Hop song to a totally different and more soulful place. Listen below.

According to Mar, a “variation” is a different version of a song that is improved by his vocals and Mar’s Variation project has seen him cover Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ and Lil Wayne’s ‘Single’ amongst other popular or classic songs.
