911 is a duet between rap singer Wyclef Jean and soul music singer Mary J. Blige. Released in the summer of 2000 off Wyclef's second disc, The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book, the song depicted two star-crossed lovers in a web of drama with the male narrator running from police while the female narrator worries forlornly over him. Outside influences are spoke about as evading both of their lives into saying "messing around with you is gonna get (the man) life" though they feel "it's worth the sacrifice". The song was a hit for the two singers as it reached #38 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was nominated for a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a duo or group in 2001.
