California-bred emcee Murs is finally starting to gain some mainstream fame before his third major album, Murs for President, drops. Murs is currently on tour with Rock the Bells, and is preparing the afforementioned album for a September release on Warner Bros. Records. To up the hype a little bit more, Murs and longtime collaborator 9th Wonder decided to release a 10-track album for free online. The album is entitled Sweet Lord and is exclusively produced by 9th Wonder. If you don’t know 9th, he’s worked with Jay-Z, Little Brother, Buckshot and plenty of other wordsmiths over the years. Check out Sweet Lord here, and get ready for Murs for President. I’ve heard the album, and it’s absolutely ridiculous. Look for the review right here sometime next week.
