[HIP-HOP] In recent years, rappers like Kendrick Lamar and Lupe Fiasco have earned acclaim for their ability to observe. They aren’t gangsters, but they grew up around them, and have an ability to tell their stories. It’s a second-person narrative on life in the hood, and it’s not a new phenomenon for the genre: California rapper Murs, for example, has been doing it for years. And, like those previously mentioned, Murs is gifted at depicting the pain and hardships of others through his own words. Last summer, he took it to a new level when he released “Animal Style,” a song written from the perspective of a young gay male in love with his best friend. These types of songs have helped Murs gain a reputation as one of the more poignant West Coast MCs in hip-hop today—a title not easily bestowed.
