Seemingly one of the few rappers willing to take a commercial risk, Rapper 'Murs', heads into deeply personal and introspective territory with this most confessional of rap
albums. Harking back to the back template of just a rapper (Murs) & producer (the 9th wonder), they strip back on the flashy bravado and thug stories and produce a rap album more akin to introspective singer/songwriters.
Murs isn't looking to use this record to make amends for his life or the things he's done in his time, the stories here are of a gangsters daily life. but told from the perspective of an ordinary man/hustler, trying to make
sense of his way of life. Murs himself likens his personality more "Coldplay Than Ice-T".
And what follows is a (albeit Short), album of semi-interlinked
stories, told from the perspective of someone not completely at easy with his lifestyle.
Producer 'the 9th wonder', is something of a minor Revelation, by largely ignoring loud, beat heavy arrangements, and composing a series of tracks loosely based around samples of dusty classic soul and 70's funk.
(think 'Kayne west' style sampled arrangements). and its this production that adds to the subdued nature of the tracks. And gives the lyrics more substance & emotional attachment.
Those expecting the lyrics to have been 'watered down' due to the
introspective nature of the record, will be glad to hear that this is a harsh and unflinching collection of stories being relayed here. Murs doesn't shy away from looking at the material in a Cold, disinchanted and uncompromising
fashion.

4.0 out of 5 stars good album, bad website July 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is pretty good. THough I am starting to have my doubts about amazon.com. It seems as there has been a recent constant mix up or orders, and delays. If you're going to order this album, save yourself the money and order it standard shipping. I usually use 1 day or 2 day, but something always seems to come up and my order somehow gets delayed and I end up waiting at least 3 days anyway. So pretty much what Im saying is that even if your pay for faster shipping, there's a good chance you still wont get it for when you paid for it. so just order standard and save that extra 5 to ten bucks...Back to the album, nice, mellow, short though

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Material but 4.5 stars July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a hot album. Definitely a hot album. Only ten songs but if there was more songs, it could have fallen to the waste side. You do not have to skip a track. I really do not have a bottom song. but I'll give a rundown just for critic points.
Top 3 Songs: HUSTLER, The Animal, 3:16
Bottom Song: Pain

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy hip hop album!!! June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the only albums ever where the lyrics match with the beats. With almost every single rapper in the game today, either their rhymes are too good for the beat, or the listener is just listening to the song the beats. The only thing wrong with this album is that it was only 10 songs. But Illmatic was only 10 songs, and that album is arguably the greatest album ever. This album is definitely worth a trip to your local Virgin Megastore. Holla atcha boy!!!!!!! Look out for my new single called "To My Unborn Child" produced by my boy JnIce WATCH OUT

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Hip Hop (4 Stars) June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'd never heard of Murs before I bought this album, but I copped it when I found out that 9th Wonder did the beats. I'm glad I copped it. This is easily one of the best releases of 2004 so far. Murs definitely has skills and great storytelling ability. On tracks like "Walk Like A Man", you feel as if you're standing right there with him when his best friend gets shot while on comical tracks like "Trevor An' Them" you're on the edge of your seat as he explains how one of his not-so-bright homies got him involved in a convenience store robbery. As far as production goes, I've heard better from 9th, but don't take that the wrong way because this is still a dope album as far as beats go. The strongest beats on the album come on tracks like "Walk Like A Man", "3:16", "Animal", Bad Man, and "H-U-S-T-L-E". The subject matter ranges from rejection by the opposite sex, sexual adventures, and revenge, which are all familiar topics, but Murs has a way of kicking these tales with a style that keeps them from coming off as stagnant or stale. Tracks like "Animal" and "3:16" show off his rhyming skills though they also show some glaring shortcomings. On "Animal" Phonte from Little Brother seems to leave Murs in the dust as far as skills are concerned, but he does manage to hold his own (think Em & Jay on "Renegade", but on a smaller scale). On "And This Is For...", Murs talks about how white rappers and their fans treat rap as some spur of the moment novelty and how rap will eventually take the same route as rock and be assimilated by white people (hell, they assimilate everything else). Listen to the song for more insight on the topic, he makes a lot of good points. My only beef with this album is that it's only 35 minutes long. Read more ›
