With his Strange Music debut out in stores, Murs delivers a touching rendition and visual in honor of those that left too soon. Murs’ album, Have A Nice Life, is out now! RIP Eyedea.
With his Strange Music debut dropping nexth month, Murs delivers a new visual for the MNDR assisted track. The track focus on black on black crime. This is what Murs had to say about the video:
‘No More Control’ is about not letting the media or the powers that be control us or guide us into thinking that the problem is anything other than violence,. A lot of my contemporaries would have you believe that the problem is just the police, which, I am not disregarding at all, I am just as sickened and fed up as everyone else with what we’ve been seeing on the news.”
“What about what’s not making the news?. It is very rare that someone from the hip-hop community and the black community would stand up and say, ‘I think the majority of the opportunity for change is still in our control.’ They want us to be victims, to think ‘march and protest’ because that’s the victim role. Yes, the police are out of control, but what can we control? We can control the culture of violence in our community. Instead of looking at what we can control, we’re looking at the justice system to convict these one, two, three or one hundred police officers. Bringing these killers to justice is only part of the solution.”
Murs is gearing up for the release of his upcoming album, Have A Nice Life, via Strange Music. He released the first visual, Okey Dog, where Murs plays an old man telling a story to his grandchildren about a L.A. gangbanger doing dirt by his lonely.
