MJB meets Gyptian inna Jerry Wonda style

September 10, 2010

Words by Jesse Serwer

Considering the grip that “Hold Yuh” has had on urban radio the last few months, it was only a matter of time before R&B artists and rappers began tapping Gyptian for cameos. Actually, it’s somewhat surprising that it took this long for the first such track, Mary J. Blige’s “Anything You Want,” to appear โ€”ย and that it’s such a heavily reggae-weighted tune. We’re not totally mad at the single, which pairs Mary and Gyp with yardfather Busta Rhymes on a melodic update of the timeless Stalag riddim produced by Wyclef cousin/J-Bieber collaborator Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis, but it’s definitely something we’re going to have to warm up to over time. Thoughts?
