MURS has finally released the much-anticipated and long-awaited Have A Nice Life. Cue the reviews!
Always on the ball, HipHopDX is the first to review MURS’ first solo album on Strange Music. The review cites MURS’ album as the work of a wise MURS, who turned in a new style of album in terms of style and content. Similar to Nas’s Life Is Good, MURS has made an album that reflects a renewed sense of purpose while reflecting on grown-up tones and themes.
With many rappers celebrating the 20th anniversary of their storied albums the past few years, Hip Hop fans have been able to see the effects of age on their favorite emcees – and their lyrics. Much like skillful emcees such as Nas, who once talked of project life but now raps about his daughters, Murs has shown his age as well, his skillful storytelling shifting from recounting drunken nights to important tales aimed at those on the come-up. And while some may be upset that Murs isn’t the unruly rapper he once was, he’s managed to craft a project that remains true while growing up enough to talk about life in a radiant, maturity tinged glow.
