New dope from underground rapper Murs in the form of S-K-I-B-E-A-T-Z – the stand-out from his current LP Love & Rockets Volume 1: The Transformation and his tribute to the man responsible for the music on said LP. That’ll be Ski Beatz then who I, personally, remember as the man responsible for the funk-fuelled beats on Camp Lo’s excellent Black Hollywood LP. S-K-I-B-E-A-T-Z finds Ski dropping beats with a heavy funk flow while Murs lays into them as snorts snow, “The mainstream is full of lames with bad tatts/ Heads filled up with cocaine and wack raps.”
Cali underground rap legend Murs proudly presents the music video for “S.K.I.B.E.A.T.Z.”, his newest from Love & Rockets Volume 1: The Transformation, his new album produced entirely by Ski Beatz, the man behind classic tracks for Jay-Z, Mos Def, Camp Lo and many more. The song also features Bay Area emcee Locksmith. Love & Rockets comes courtesy of BluRoc, the fledgling imprint headed by ex-Roc-A-Fella co-owner Damon Dash, who also counts rappers Tabi Bonney and Da$h, singer McKenzie Eddy and musician Sean O’Connell on his roster. The BluRoc crew is currently on the road for the MTV/Sirius/Adidas-sponsored Hip Hop & Love Tour, on track to hit 50+ cities between September 27 and November 26. Love & Rockets’ cover art was designed by Dave Barnett, the talent behind covers for Curren$y’s Pilot Talk series. The album features O.C., Dee1, Tabi Bonney, Ab-Soul and Locksmith, and is available on iTunes, Best Buy and mom ‘n pops worldwide.
