"For too long, Los Angeles hip hop has been seen as one dimensional 'gangsta rap.' With this new series, we're giving our city's hip hop artists an amazing platform to show not only our community, but the world, that we have so much more to offer." – Murs

Legendary emcee

Murs

has joined forces with L.A. museum

LACMA

and

Through the Mic

concert series, which will explores contemporary Los Angeles hip hop, with an emphasis on the diversity of L.A.-based artists. Co-curated by LACMA and Murs, concerts will take place on the third Thursday of every month, May through October 2012.

To kick off the series,
