Murs is a busy man. Not only did he start the Paid Dues Festival (think the Warped Tour of indie rap), but he's preparing himself for its sixth anniversary with a 35-city romp around the country that hits Houston Thursday night. The rapper, whose narration blends storytelling, humor and street smarts, has an expansive and varied catalog. He first built his name in the Oakland/L.A. Living Legends collective before moving on to solo work. He's a frequent collaborator with Minneapolis's Slug, releasing three records with the Atmosphere front man under the Felt moniker, and has even been involved in a punk fusion band with openers Whole Wheat Bread.
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
