Hip-hop artist Murs has announced a nationwide tour kicking off March 30th with acclaimed producer 9th Wonder and labelmates Supreeme.
In conjunction with the recent release of his new album "Murray's Revenge," west coast underground hip-hop phenomenon Murs will be heading out on a two-month nationwide tour. This tour will be making stops in major cities across the US including NY, Chicago, San Francisco and Philadelphia.
"Murray's Revenge" follows the runaway acclaim of hip-hop rap MC’s Murs' last album, 2004's instant classic "3:16 -- The 9th Edition" (Def Jux). 3:16 was Murs' first collabo with 9th Wonder of Little Brother & legendary rap artist Jay-Z fame.
9th Wonder first gained fame with his group Little Brother and has since gone on to produce for many hip-hop, rap and R&B artists such as Mary J. Blige, M.O.P., Freeway, Destiny's Child and more.
Murs & 9th's first collaboration ended up on numerous Top 10's and Best of 2004 lists. With Murray's Revenge Murs is able to once again give his listeners an honest and refreshing look into his world and issues that are still of importance to this day through his lyrics.
During his career Murs has had the opportunity to collaborate with everyone from Aesop Rock, Atmosphere, Company Flow, Little Brother, Jean Grae, Living Legends, Aceyalone, Shock G, E-40 and many more.
Murs got his start in the Living Legends and still remains affiliated with the group. Murs organized and headlined the 'Paid Dues' Independent Hip-Hop Festival on March 11th at the Shrine Expo Center which also featured underground hip-hop heavyweights El-P, Aesop Rock, Brother Ali and more. Over 6,000 fans attended the show and the LA Times said "There's a vibrant rap scene with advanced lyricism, stinging political commentary and quality DJ performances that continues to flourish in a seemingly parallel universe..."
