700 Website Murs

Murs is the consummate “rapper’s rapper”. He is one of the most successful and prolific independent rappers of all time. He has recorded a string of revered collaborative albums with Fashawn, 9th Wonder and Slug of Atmosphere (as Felt). 

For over two decades Murs has rapped fearlessly with power, purpose and poise. Picking up a mic in high school, he founded 3 Melancholy Gypsys before logging time in influential West Coast collective Living Legends.

Following his 1997 solo debut F’Real, he unleashed a string of underground classics, including The End of the Beginning for El-P’s Definitive Jux, the major label breakout Murs For President and the critically acclaimed Have A Nice Life. The latter earned praise from the likes of Pitchfork, HipHopDX, and XXL. 2017’s Captain California maintained that momentum and went Top 25 on the Billboard Independent Albums Chart.
