Murs Tour + Paid Dues Festival

If you didn’t know, I am a big fan of Murs. He has been doing his thing for awhile on the West Coast, from starring in the group, Living Legends, working on various other projects with various other artists(9th Wonder, Slug, etc) and running the very successful, Paid Dues Fest. In anticipation for this years festival, he has announced a 35 city tour. Among the spots he’s hitting this time around are Local 506(Carrboro, NC) & Awful Arthur’s(Roanoke, VA).

Murs & 9th Wonder – I Used to Love H.e.r. (Again)

Murs & 9th Wonder have proven to be a formidable duo. They have released a handful of albums over the last few years, and each one seems to get better & better. Check out this video form their last offering. It’s a remake of Common’s classic. Dope visuals and  dope rhymes…what else could you want?!?
