Murs is probably one of the greatest emcees you’ve never heard of. Murs comes from LA and isn’t some chump with a color on his back pocket. He has brought heat for a long time and has been building buzz with the hip hop community with his last two solo albums: Murs 3:16 the 9th Edition and Murray’s Revenge. Both are collaborations with soul sampling extraordinaire 9th Wonder, and his flow and lyrics are unmatched on those two albums.
(Also, worthwhile listen is his Atmosphere collabo Felt: A Tribute to Christina Ricci and Felt 2: A Tribute to Lisa Bonet.)
Now, Murs is back and is making his major record debut with Murs for President. This is an album of great proportions. Production is handled by Will.I.Am, Nottz, 9th Wonder, and many more. From what I have heard so far, this album is very solid. I will have to cop it to get the full experience, but from the few tracks I have heard so far, Murs is the same, indie or major.
