MURS’ STRANGE JOURNEY
3/19/18

BY JASON HASHAWAY

L.A. native MURS came to impress when he performed to a sold-out crowd in Hollywood on 3/16. Kicking off St. Patty’s Day Weekend, the gig arrived in tandem with a brand new album, A Strange Journey into the Unimaginable—produced by Michael “Seven” Summers and released via Strange Music. It’s was MURS' bday, but he was the one giving out the gifts at The Roxy, and he did so in true hip-hop fashion (the only way MURS knows how) with masterful lyrics and good vibes. This former Living Legends member is still living up to the name.

The powerhouse left it all on the stage and still had the juice to come out for a encore performance of two Living Legends classics. Earlier in the set, he lent the stage to Fashawn, an artist signed by Nas’ label Mass Appeal Records, and Prof, an energetic rapper out of Minnesota signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment who was happy to deliver the pain in celebration of MURS' born day. Luckily, no leprechauns were harmed during the performances, but we definitely started seeing some rainbows after a few rounds.
