Having already won an award from DJ Booth’s 2014 Best of the Booth, you would’ve thought ¡MAYDAY! x MURS had a good run with the awards. As it turns out, they were just getting started.
In 2014, the two forces would combine to make 2014’s summer hip hop smash album: ¡MURSDAY!. Not only would they earn an end of the year award in DJ Booth’s Best of the Booth for “Here” (Best hip hop record – indie) but they would also turn out to win Best Hip Hop Album of 2014 for ¡MURSDAY!, taking home the Reader’s Choice award.
DJ Booth says:
Hip-hop is full of collaborations, groups, and duos, taking various talent and forging something unforgettable. Last year we added another group into the growing catalog, ¡MURSDAY!. When it was announced that underground favorite Murs would be signing to Tech N9ne’s Strange Music imprint many speculated about how the two mighty forces would co-exist. No one expected Murs to link with hip-hop group ¡Mayday! but the results of their kinship has left us and many fans pleased. There’s a synergy that allowed ¡MURSDAY! to blend the best of both worlds, without featuring Jay Z or R. Kelly. This is the second BOTBA that ¡MURSDAY! has received this year, snagging best indie hip-hop record, for the incredible “Here.” The fans have spoken, hopefully a sequel is being plotted for the near future.
