Last month MURS released his latest album, Have A Nice Life, and, not surprisingly, it's damned good. In fact, I anticipate it being on my year-end best-of list for RapReviews. With that in mind, I was slightly bothered by the fact that when I looked to see which singles he'd made videos for, the clip for "No More Control" hadn't broken 200k views despite coming out two months ago.
As a song, "No More Control" is an incredibly powerful statement, and the video isn't just equally powerful, it's jarring... or at least it should be to anyone who cares about people.
MURS is a dope emcee. "No More Control" is a great video. This is the kind of hip-hop we should all wholeheartedly support. The only way it can rise to the top, however, is if we all watch, listen, and pass it on, which is exactly what I'm doing right now.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
