#84 Murs- 3:16: The Ninth Edition
In "The Pain" Murs spits the line, "I'm more Coldplay than I am Ice-T", which sums up one of the many things about Murs that sets him apart from many others in the hip hop genre. No offense to Ice-T and his awesome one dimensional acting, but Murs is a breath of fresh air in an over-saturated world of angry MC's; all Murs wants is a nice girl who can appreciate his sensitive nature.
The Living Legend crew member teams up with producer 9th Wonder on his second solo effort, 3:16: The Ninth Edition. The Los Angeles rapper might appear tough but his good-guy nature and sense of humor discredit any hardness Murs attempts to throw out. 9th Wonder's production provides the perfect blend of 70's soul beats for songs like "H.U.S.T.L.E.", "The Pain" and "3:16". Another standout track is "Bad Man!", which is one of those obnoxiously catchy "in a good way" songs, that will have you humming it for days.
Peep Murs' 3:16, and peep his new disc too! Prove it to him that nice guys don't always finish last.
