Artist Appreciation Post: Murs

The Latest Playlist: Murs

*Track listing at bottom of post


Check the latest playlist to hear my favorite tracks from one of the most important artists in independent hip-hop over the past 20 years.

Murs has dropped new music every year since 1997 through solo and collaborative projects (Living Legends, Felt, Murs & 9th Wonder, etc.). As an emcee he’s an exceptional storyteller that consistently promotes peace, love, and LA pride, and has provided fans with countless classics.  

His contribution to hip-hop goes far beyond his music. As an advocate of independent hip-hop, he’s worked tirelessly on a wide range of projects and collaborations aimed at promoting other independent hip-hop artists, most notably his annual “Paid Dues” festival that he organized from 2006-2013, in which he showcased most of the significant independent artists of that time. 

I’ve been a fan for many years and have been exposed to a lot of great hip-hop music either by or through Murs. He doesn’t get near the amount of credit he deserves, but independent hip-hop wouldn’t be what it is today without him.
