Murs Joins Apollo Brown’s Ugly Heroes Asking Why Good Things Die (Audio)
Both Mello Music Group and Murs are based in the deserts of Tucson, Arizona. The former Warner Bros. Records artist and the thriving indie are working more together. Thereby, Murray joined Ugly Heroes, the trio of Michigan’s Apollo Brown and Red Pill and Chicago vet Verbal Kent.
“Good Things Die” is a bonus cut that lets Apollo’s Soul sampling do a lot of the talking. Red and Verbal honor their guest, working him into the track as “a Living Legend.” Meanwhile, all three MCs mourn the things, the people, and some of the hope that’s dying all around—all while giving Heads some.
This comes from Ugly Heroes’ 10-track self-titled EP, which includes five new tracks, plus some carryovers from 2013’s debut. Oddisee, Murs, and DJ Eclipse all got involved. Stream the EP at the crew’s Bandcamp page.
