Serius Jones ft. Daria Jones - Stairway to Heaven

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Needlz
Album:
Serius Bizness 2

Not gonna lie: there’s a part of me that’s morbidly curious what a hip-hop cover of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven might sound like. Even though another, smarter part of me knows that would probably be awful. In any case, we won’t be finding out today; this Stairway, the latest entry in Serius JonesSerius Sundays series, borrows only a central image from the aforementioned cut, and is likely the better for it. Here, producer Needlz’ funky sample work sets the mood as the Jersey repper draws our attention to those at the very bottom of the societal barrel, who struggle their whole lives find way out of the hole they were born in. Though Jones acknowledges that only the extremely lucky and/or talented (himself included – at least, he’s hoping so) make it out of the streets and to achieve success in this life, he trusts that the disenfranchised will get their due in the hereafter: Singer-songwriter Daria Jones handles guest duties, attacking the hook in passionately soulful style. Listeners jonesing for more Serius Jones should keep it locked for further entries in the emcee’s weekly series, as well as release details on his forthcoming Serius Bizness 2 mixtape.
