Murs has had one of the more artistically fluid careers in Hip Hop. Whether he was rocking with Living Legends, touring with Atmosphere, spitting alongside Tech N9ne as part of the Strange Music family or venturing into new territory with The Grouch as Thees Handz, the versatile MC has continually evolved over the last two plus decades.
But it looks like Murs’ fruitful rap journey is coming to an end — but not before he unloads several new projects. On Friday (June 10), the Los Angeles native shared an Instagram video informing his fans he’s putting a period on his career, while delivering a single called “The Beginning of the End.”
“Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end,” he says in the clip. “And y’all know I’m a storyteller. Today I released a song called ‘The Beginning of the End.’ About 20 years ago, I released a song called ‘The End of the Beginning’ because I knew I was beginning the midpoint of my journey. Today, I begin the end of my journey as an MC.”
He continued, “We reached that point y’all. About a year or so left and I’m giving this notice because I want you all to enjoy all the projects I have coming. I have a lot of music coming. I want you to enjoy it and enjoy this last trip around the bases with me.”
