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.

Please note: Due to the weight and size of this box set there will be an additional shipping charge for most orders to be shipped outside of North America. We will contact you for approval of any extra charges before shipping.

This album is simply that...from the beats, to the lyrics, from the production to the editing. Everything falls into place and makes much sense. Love this guy!

Murs makin' change?, September 16, 2008
By: SUPeRB - See all my reviews

The third track really grabs your attention with the horn-heavy, 'Lookin' Fly.' It's featuring Will I AM and is sure to frequent local radio stations. Aside from the track, 'Time Is Now,' Featuring Snoop Dogg, the album is true to Murs' underground roots. The album also features DJ Premier, Latoya Williams, 9th Wonder and DJ Quik. Underground fans should center on, 'The Science.' This song begins with a criticism of the new generation of hip hop, who Murs proclaims is lost. The song then bounces back and fourth between hip hop history and black history. Murs is straight droppin' knowledge on all those that slept or just neglected to study hip hop's origin. Yup, Murs is finally on a major label, but he contests that it's the only way he can create any change in the constantly deteriorating intellectual quality of popular hip hop music.
