LAist got some time in with Los Angeles rapper MURS. MURS has just released 'MURS FOR PRESIDENT' on Warner Bros Records, and is a member of the rap groups Living Legends, and Felt. He hails from the Los Angeles neighborhood of Mid-City. I call him a homie-by-proxy! MURS stands for Making Underground Raw Shit - but it should stand for My Ultimate Rare Sit-down.

LAist: Congrats on the new album. You mentioned on the album that you lost money on the Paid Dues tour - How come?
MURS: It didn't perform as well as expected - it takes some time to get into 'profit'.

Slug of Atmosphere is a ladies man - did working with Slug [on Felt 1 and Felt 2] result in a huge influx of female fans?
A lil' bit... [yeah] more females, I'm sure of it.

What are the plans with the hair style?
It does whatever it does, dunno what's next.
