Nobody (Cover Version) by RapSouL


Well, for those of you that already watched the Kampong Style video (through Facebook), thanks for your comments & 'Like's and also thank you for sharing the video in your Walls. In other words, THANKS FOR SPREADING THE LOVE!

And now we would like to share with you guys about the story behind the project. Actually, we've never been in studio since 2006! All of us got a job commitment - CARI MAKAN and there's no spaces for us to brainstorm any ideas even a single song. We love to call it "LONG HIBERNATION". But we never stop listening to our favorite songs. Our soul and passion in music keeps alive.


The idea to do a cover song begins with Mern and JC Jane. Just search "Nobody Rainstone Remix" (originally performed by Wondergirls feat. Dynamic Duo, SAN E, J.Y. Park) in YouTube, there are many cover versions from everywhere, entire the world... guessed so. Many different languages. So how about covering it in Malay version?

So for the first time after 4 years, RapSouL members reunite to record the cover song - 16th May,2010. The Malay version lyrics were written by RapSouL but still using the same Rainstone Remix instrumental. While recording the rap parts and vocals track, Georgie @ Joji was appointed to shoot the Kampong Video-oh-ow. The recording was done at Mern Studio, Petagas. Some of the video parts were taken at somewhere in KK City.

After that, Mern took about 2 weeks to mix & master the recorded tracks and video (his very first time attempt to edit a video!). Then, the final stage is... to upload it through the INTERNET! Facebook and YouTube! Yeah!

Mr.Kudique a.k.a MC Roll'N (1st Verse)
Cliff a.k.a CINCAI (2nd Verse)
Ekee a.k.a Tukee (3rd Verse)
ReubN (Chorus - Maybe his tongue got problem to pronounce English words correctly, orang DUSUN melulu! OR the listeners ears got problem? He he he...)
Mern (Bridge)


Thank You GOD for giving us the talent ...
