iTunes Editors’ Notes

Soft-spoken, affable, and piercingly intelligent, Los Angeles based underground mainstay Murs has been humbly churning out great music since the late nineties and his output since 2003’s End of the Beginning has been uniformly excellent. Over the course of a host of solo albums and collaborative efforts with the likes of Slug from Atmosphere, The Living Legends, and members of the Def Jux stable, Murs has fashioned a charismatic and compulsively likable persona. His low-key intelligence and self-deprecatory indignation make him a curiously modest figure on a Hip-Hop scene filled with inflated egos and self-made millionaires. His latest release and first major label effort Murs For President finds him further developing this persona over a refreshingly unadorned album that will sound familiar to his long time fans, but that sports just enough gloss to appeal to a wider audience. The album features a handful of big budget guest appearances from the likes of Snoop Dogg and will.i.am but its strongest moments come on tunes like the piano and sleigh bell laden “Everything,” which finds Murs reflecting on the unexpected path his career has taken and the difficult choices he’s been forced to make along the way.

Customer Reviews

Murs iz awesome

Good album, intellegent and not just a bunch of stupid pointless crap. Murs is a relief that some rappers are still real! Here are my ratings:

Intro:6/10. Good but not anything special.
I'm innocent:9/10. Good message.
Lookin' fly:6/10. Weakest song on the album and not much of a message.
The science:8/10. Good lyrics, good beat.
Can it be:8/10. Great song all around.
Everything:9/10. I like how Murs has a guitar track in the background...creative.
Road is my religion:7/10. It's okay but it could have better lyrics.
Sooo comfortable:7/10. Nice beat but not a whole lot of meaning.
Time is now:8/10. Good lyrics but their voices don't go good over the beat.
Think you know me:9/10. Another strong song with a nice beat.
Me and this jawn:8/10. Pretty good but he could work on the lyrics.
Love and appreciate 2:8/10. A good part 2 of the original song.
A part of me:7/10. Cool how he fused rap with 90s rock.
Break up:8/10. Catchy, grovy, great song.
Breaktrough:9/10. Nice message, another really strong song.

This Album Is Clean (Double Meaning)

iTunes should really label this album correctly. It is completely EDITED, and completely good. Definitely a good buy if u'r into hip-hop, hell even rock. Music with a message. Murs is a breathe of fresh air in a dime a dozen rap world.
