Living Legends: Legendary Music, Vol. 1

It’s hard to imagine a more prolific crew of musicians than Living Legends, an eight-man hip-hop collective from LA and Oakland.

I like to think that I’m up on the trends, yet every time I check it seems the Legends have put out a group album or something solo. Murs’ Murray’s Revenge was one of my favorites of 2006. For the record, Living Legends are: Murs, the Grouch, Eligh, Luckyiam, Scarub, Sunspot Jonz, Asop and Bicasso. If it isn’t a Legends release, the guys are splintering and forming different combos, like 3 Melancholy Gypsys (Murs, Eligh, Scarub).

Anyway, Legendary Music, Vol. 1 features previously unreleased and soon-to-be released material (all for only $8). I had trouble deciding which track to share, but I’ve been diggin’ on the Sunspot Jonz song Purple Kush, as good as any mainstream beat … guaranteed. Or if you go to the group’s Web site, you can stream 2010 by 3MGs, which samples Nirvana’s cover of The Man Who Sold the World.

  1. I wouldn’t call that beat merely “average.” not that it was all that special. but the track as a whole is great and really hangs together. i love the slighly cheesy electric piano.

    or as Sunspot (how can you not like that name?) sez “i’m so fresh, i’ll be hype when i play my own funeral” (or something like that) . . .

  2. i have heard the song and i love it. I have to say you are one of the few Rap groups and rappers left. i tired of all this hip hop talking about bling and materials items. you guys have kept it real through all the years and i have to thank you for that. much luv and respect.
