iTunes Review

A certified indie-rap mogul, L.A. veteran Murs has been putting out higher-level hip-hop since the early '90s. Down with Living Legends, 3 Melancholy Gypsies, and Felt, he also organizes the hugely popular Paid Dues tour every year and has dropped a steady stream of great solo albums, including Murs Rules the World, The End of the Beginning, and Murs for President. Fashawn is a younger cat from Fresno; he's been bombarding the scene with a gang of mixtapes and released his first true album, Boy Meets World in 2009. On This Generation, they join forces for an excellent collabo project. It's entirely produced by Beatnick and K-Salaam, who provide a compelling backdrop of neckbending future funk. From the radio-ready title track to the Cali-pride jam "64 Impala" and the "can't we all get along?" gangster anthem "Peace Treaty," every song on here is undeniably catchy and inherently smart. It's proof positive that so-called backpack rap doesn't have to be hyper-abstract, and strong hooks aren't always corny; there's truly something for everybody here. Other highlights include "Slash Gordan" (propelled by guitar and steel drums) and the Neptunes-esque "Future Love."

Welcome

To the new generation...Hip-hop at its finest...Pumped to great MC's come together and create greatness

All around good album!

I've been a big murs/Living Legends fan for well over a decade and to this day he's never put out a product that wasn't top quality. Up until now I've heard very little from Fashawn but because of this album I bought his other two albums, which are both great by the way.

I love the beats and production on this album with the expection of a couple tracks that I'd consider mediocore. I liked all the Felt albums with Murs and Slug but it was obvious their second album was muliple levels above their initial release after more time in the studio together. Considering these two never work with each let alone knew each other prior to this EP and still put out such a solid album is nothing short of amazing. A lot of people may disagree but I thought the Kanye and Jay Z album was a complete disaster, mixing two talented artists doesn't always equal a quality product but these two pulled it off.

I think its pretty fair to say anybody who loves hip hop will enjoy this album. Even the poeple who usually only listen to that mainstream cookie cutter artists would even like it. The production is 2nd to none.

Gotta support these indie rappers. Their the only real rap we have left if you don't want to hear someone rap about how hard they are, Benz and Beamers, gold chains, b!tches, or potraying something their not.
