MURS For President

Since N.W.A. released Straight Outta Compton in 1988, Los Angeles has been praised for its raw and hardcore style of gangster rap music.  At the turn of the century, however, many underground rap artists from Southern California shifted away from the common content known to the region and L.A.-native MURS was ready to take the lead.  A member of the West Coast rap group, Living Legends, MURS has already released ten albums (five solo and five collaborative) over the last nine years.  Calling his rhyming style “Sitcom Rap,” MURS (Making Underground Raw Sh*t) is known for his clear flow and “say-it-like-it-is” punch lines.  So, on the first single off his upcoming new album, MURS makes the claim that he is Better Than The Best.  Signed to major label, Warner Bros. Records, MURS For President is set to drop 1st quarter of next year
