Murs is more than just a rapper. He’s a dedicated father, hip-hop historian, an avid wrestling fan, amazing story-teller, and now, proud owner of a new cherry & waffles stout beer. We caught up with Murs while he was dealing with an unpleasant stomach bug, but being the professional that he is, Murs stuck it out for over 90 minutes with us. His stories are fascinating. Whether he is talking about DJ Quik cooking chicken soup for him, Brother Ali being scared of shellfish or El-P throwing down in a Denny’s parking lot, this interview is packed with gems for days. We also discuss everything from Living Legends, Def Jux, Strange Music, Warner Brothers, Paid Dues, 9th Wonder, Will Smith and the possibility of Felt 4 with Sluggo. Murs is a down-to-earth, self-deprecating, fun-loving guy, who is exactly the same both on and off record. He is relatable, likable and extremely personable. Be on the look out for his upcoming album with 9th Wonder titled The Illiad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over. He is also on hitting the road so be sure to check for him if he is coming to your city! Thanks to Murs and to all of you who listen, support and rock with Take It Personal!
