  1. His major-label debut after years on Def Jux feels status quo for the most part, and new labelmates will.i.am and Snoop only dilute his product with lazy cameos. But there’s still much to admire about Mur’s campaign to turn on some heads.
  2. As strong as many of the tracks on Murs for President are, they are inevitably marred by the aforementioned duds. Without those, it would be a different story for Murray.
  3. The Wire

    A usually sharp MC, Murs sounds conflicted throughout, a little too anxious to be loved by everyone. [Dec 2008, p.74]
  4. 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.
