Who is MURS?
If you haven’t heard of this guy, then you’re not up on your music. MURS (Making Underground Raw S**T) is relatively unknown to East Coast listeners of hip hop, mainly due to his location out there on the West. His style can get choppy at times, depending on the beat, and the topics he covers range from skateboarding to premature ejaculation. Definitely a rapper for the common man, MURS makes music the mostly anybody can relate to while also providing a little depth for the more intellectual listener. In 2004 and 2006, he teamed up with famed producer, 9th Wonder, and released MURS 3:16: The 9th Edition and Murray’s Revenge. The production on those two albums are exceptional and shows that 9th can create other sounds besides the usual soulful ones that most Little Brother fans are used to. Check out his ode to his hometown in this song entitled, “L.A.” from the album Murray’s Revenge.
