Murs Chops Locs, Preps New LP On Dame Dash’s Label

Longtime West Coast veteran MC Murs has been sporting his signature dreadlocked hairstyle for some time now. Now the Living Legend can freely sport a baseball cap again after hanging out in the East Coast working on his new album and visiting Lower East Side barbershop institution Frank’s Chop Shop where he got the big chop.

In a short video clip recording the whole event, Murs offered at the end, “Frank’s Chop Shop, you changed my life. Now I’m gonna get laid, and paid. It’s all because of you,” says Murs of his new ‘do. “My name is Murs, you may not recognize me, I’m hot!”

Murs spent a few weeks working with celebrated Hip Hop producer Ski Beatz on the east coast, preparing for his new album coming this fall with the fitting title Love & Rockets, Vol. 1: The Transformation set to be released on Dame Dash’s DD172/BLUROC label. With six solo albums, six collaboration LPs and a host of EPs, the prolific rapper has emerged as one of underground Hip Hop’s most well known and loved artists.

Murs will also be heading on a sixty-day tour in support of the DD/172/BLUROC release alongside Tabi Bonney, singer and DD172 co-founder McKenzie Eddy, and producer/musician Sean O’Connell. The “Hip Hop & Love Tour” will begin in Phoenix, Arizona September 27 and end October 26 in Tuscon.

This past April, Murs spearheaded the sixth annual Paid Dues Independent Hip Hop Festival that featured an eclectic mix of artists including Bun B, E-40, Lil B, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more.
