Album Review: Murs – Have A Nice Life (8/10)

Murs-Have-A-Nice-LifeContent is king. While Dre can release music every 10 years and survive, underground artists thrive on staying relevant—via album releases, mix-tapes, guest spots, constant touring, etc. Murs is no stranger to the game, and on this, his newest solo release, the L.A. native continues to be hip-hop’s most advanced story teller. “PTSD” (featuring E-40) focuses on never escaping the flashbacks of neighborhood violence, while “Okey Dog” tells the tall tale of a thug starting a solo gang named after a local eatery. While some of these tales may educate, all of them are sure to entertain. – Andy Mesecher
