MURS has been around the block/country/Earth a few times and back, it’s no wonder that he was able to pack so much powerful knowledge in his riveting Strange Music debut Have A Nice Life.
This review from The Examiner so expertly explains why Have A Nice Life is such a riveting listen from start to finish. With the album’s potent combination of age-earned wisdom and youthful verve, Have A Nice Life is the coming of age album for everybody.
For anyone still wondering why everyone who’s purchased the album is so crazy about it, this review should answer your questions.
MURS has an extensive resume in the rap game so it makes a lot of sense that every line of this album sheds light on powerful insight or assists in delivering a point. For example, he puts plenty of grown man positivity over soft piano and easy drums in the “Have A Nice Life” title opener. “Mi Corazon,” the story of MURS’ relationship with his hispanic girlfriend Leti, de-stigmatizes both interracial dating and appreciating the police. Returning to his rough and tumble childhood in South Los Angeles by hitting on topics of hood dangers, paranoia and bad memories, MURS is as colorful with the negatives he reminisces on as he is speaking against them. He strongly and stylishly balances ghetto traits with coming of age and escaping poverty in “Two Step,” explores the twisted rationale that cocaine peddlers make for their trade in “Anyways,” and handles seniority, fake gangstas and gun offenses all at once in the anthemic, clap-along banger “Okey Dog.”
