DESCRIPTION
At long last! The heavily delayed, highly anticipated Murs For President finally arrives and just in time to cast your ballot! Upon listening you'll need to approach this in the same way Murs did... as a concept album. The Living Legend has said it has been one of the most challenging experiences ''musically'' of his life. You'd have to ask yourself what would you do if you were coming from the underground and were given the daunting task of making an album for a major label and on their budget for that matter. For starters, don't screw it up and certainly don't alienate your fan base. I'd say if anything, fans abandoned Murs before even getting a full listen of the album, but such is always the case, isn't it? We want to cradle our underground hip hop and take ownership over it, but once it breaks the surface we pretend we don't like it anymore. It's ok, I think we're all a little guilty of that sometimes. But there's nothing to worry about here, lyrically nothing has been lost, production-wise, there's work being put in by 9th Wonder, Knottz, Terrace Martin (whose worked with Snoop, who also makes a guest appearance) and Josef Leimberg (whose production credits include Freestyle Fellowship). The confidence Warner Bros. has in Murs is the same we've always had in him as he puts most of the mainstream to shame; now Murs can finally do so in a major way and actually be heard. In the long run, this will be a pay off for bigger and better things to come! I hope Murs has your vote now... because he's working the system, not vice versa. Colored vinyl (one disk blue, one white).
