STRANGE JOURNEY: One of the major voices of the underground, Murs has been pushing hip hop forward more than 20 years.

This L.A.-based emcee has dropped eight albums since his 1997 debut, F’Real—including classics like Murs for President (2008) and Have a Nice Life (2015). The man is unstoppable, and still melancholy as hell. His last release, A Strange Journey into the Unimaginable (2018), runs the gamut from heartbreaking to hilarious, as he jumps from spitting about his stillborn son to a superhero pool party. In addition to the prominent place he holds in the world of underground hip-hop, he has also worked with some of the genre’s best-known luminaries, including Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg.
