  1. President isn't just one of the year's best; it's one of the finest efforts to come out of hip-hop in a long time. [Dec 2008, p.153]
  2. So with Murs for President, he just did what he does, churning out another strong album of choppy retro samples that pretend chipmunk-soul and snap never existed.
  3. 80
    Murs for President has a cumulative bang that's impossible to deny.
  4. Murs for President isn’t the most perfect campaign, but it’s more than worthy of being on the ballot.
  5. Cameos range from Kid Rock to Snoop Dogg, and Murs' swift rhymes, chunky beats, and distinctive rapping style showcase an appetite for the sounds of high fashion gleam and street swagger. [Fall 2008, p.88]
  6. Murs was obviously ready to put his best foot forward--and yes, Murs for President is just as ambitious as the title indicates.
  7. Too often, though, Murs's charm is scrapped in favor of finger-wagging and outright lecturing about respecting women, reaching out across racial lines, and any number of other things that are relevant but in mainstream hip-hop are like vegetables being forced down our throats.
