Starting in 2006, Murs created and curated the Paid Dues Music Festival in and around Los Angeles, California. The Living Legends MC made a stage for many of his independent peers, friends, and acts whose music he liked. By 2007, Paid Dues teamed with Guerilla Union to do a full-on national tour. That road show continued in 2008, merging some dates with the Rock The Bells tour. The California event lasted until 2013, when it woefully stopped.

Paid Dues gave a stage to artists ranging from Brother Ali, Tech N9ne, and Devin The Dude to Rakim, Wu-Tang Clan, and Ice Cube.

After a hiatus since 2013, Murs announces the return of Paid Dues. The 2017 event is a two-day festival (September 16 & 17) at L.A.’s Pershing Square. Headliners include Lil Wayne, PRhyme, Ab-Soul, a joint set by Raekwon & Ghostface Killah, Rapsody, Nipsey Hussle, and Freddie Gibbs, among others. Murs has included his L.L. cohorts The Grouch & Eligh, as well as his joint outfit with !MAYDAY!, Mursday!.
