The ‘rapper’s rapper’, hip hop veteran Murs comes to Thekla

With 20 years' experience and a new album to showcase, Murs promises to deliver an unforgettable live show

Preview – Murs at Thekla Bristol

Bam Bam Bam have been hitting Bristol with high calibre hip hop shows this year at a faster rate than Boris Johnson changes jobs. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a ticket for GZA at SWX last weekend, well done you, but remove the smug glasses as there is plenty more heavyweight hip hop to spend your well earned pennies on. Bam Bam Bam’s next instalment comes in the shape of Murs. 

‘Murs is a true underground phenomenon, a heartfelt lyricist and master wordsmith who’s rightly known as the rapper’s rapper,’ says Bam Bam Bam’s Liam Sutcliffe – and we couldn’t have said it better.

All the way from South Central California, Thekla will welcome the microphone veteran on 13 of September for a night of imaginative lyricism, following the release of his newest release A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable. 

Over the last 20 years, underground artist Murs has collaborated with some of US hip hop’s finest

Over the last 20 years, underground artist Murs has collaborated with some of US hip hop’s finest. The number of collectives he’s a part of alone showcases his versatility and respect due as an artist, including Living Legends, Felt (you know, with Slug from Atmosphere) 3 Melancholy Gypsys, as well as Melrose with Terrace Martin.

Since his debut in 1997 with F’Real, Murs has not only had his place in rap groups but has seen a critically acclaimed solo career with records such as Murs For President and Have a Nice Life raising eyebrows.

Spotify says that fans also like artists such as Brother Ali, Hieroglyphics and Zion I, but the truth is that Nicolas Carter aka Murs has travelled so far and wide honing his skills that you’d be a fool to miss this shamefully underrated hip hop veteran showcase a raw lyrical ability that is sure to warm your cockles.
