No one "Makes Underground Raw Shit" quite like Murs. The Los Angeles emcee has established himself as one of the most consistent rhymers on the left coast, starting out just a few years after Del the Funky Homosapien, but staying relevant long after the man behind "Mistadobalina" dropped off (sorry, it's true). Murs for President was released pre-Obama election, meaning he's due for another solo disc, but Fornever—last year's full-length collaboration with 9th Wonder—still sounds fresh, capturing the rapper dropping brilliance on the epic title track and his ethnically specific love rhymes in "Asian Girl," which manages to namedrop both kimchi and pho. Clearly the way to this rapper's heart is through his stomach. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
