Check out Huxtable’s talk with Murs, L.A.s President-elect of Hip-hop.
Murs is an acronym for Making Underground Raw Shit and thats what he’s been doing for years, initially as a member of The Living Legends and now on his own. This emcee has come a long way from selling tapes and weed out of a backpack. Now at Warner Bros. Records, Murs is working with names like Snoop and 9th Wonder. This rapper has become a major player in the push for creativity in hip-hop and has one hell of an intellect.
In fact, Murs is quick to declare himself the fifth most intelligent rapper and the number-one smartest black rapper. We can’t really comment on that; KRS-ONE seems smarter than God and Ludacris invented the “hozone layer,” so we’ll leave that call to the qualified. That said, Murs is an intelligent dude. He knows what a shirt is and doesn’t make personal gain by promising poor kids diamonds if they kill their friends and smoke rock. He’s doing positive hip-hop and he’s doing it with skill.
He is also a gigantic geek. Dude reads like 32 comic books a week and wants to kick Brian Wood’s ass. You probably don’t know who that is. Well, Brian Wood, he writes comics. And Murs is going to fuck him up. Tell us:
If you looked like this…
…and wrote comic books for a living, would you screw with a rapper? Dork has it coming.
Your boy Murs is doing good things. Listen to MURS For President here, at no cost, and then buy it with your preferred currency. Go see his show, too. He rips live.
In closing, I’m too small a man to resist telling you that Murs admitted (off-camera) that he cried during Star Wars Episode 1.
