As a member of the Living Legends collective and a longtime solo artist, Murs is as prolific as any rapper out there – sometimes to a fault (I’m afraid he’s showing some Ryan Adams-like tendencies). But for my money, some of his best work has come in the company of producer 9th Wonder, who played just a small part on Murs’ major-label debut Murs for President in 2008.
Now the duo is back with Fornever, their third collaborative proper album (due out March 30), following up the 2006 favorite Murray’s Revenge and 2004’s Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition. (Hopefully, you also grabbed the free Sweet Lord mixtape when you had the chance two years ago.)
Check out the first single, The Problem Is, and a making-of look at the soon-to-be-released video.
