Murs On ‘People’s Party With Talib Kweli’
On this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper (and world record holder!) Murs to discuss the massive influence of El-P and the formation of Run the Jewels, the ceiling for white rappers, the lack of support for “conscious rap” in Los Angeles, and whether gangs should incorporate.
Murs also opens up about The Paid Dues Festival, the song/video “Animal Style,” and homophobia within the hip-hop community, his longtime friendship with producer 9th Wonder, and the parenting in the modern era. The entire episode is funny, heartfelt, and deeply thoughtful.
