West Coast underground emcee Murs and Strange Music's Mayday clan have joined forces for the first time, releasing their cool, refreshing joint album, Mursday. Both camps keep things light and joyous and don't take themselves too seriously, even when venting about their personal struggles. This mood is especially supported by the upbeat production that fosters an almost party-like atmosphere. Murs and Mayday truly bust loose in their raps about stardom, success, change, the ladies, and what might be rap music's first mention of the new Bitcoin currency. Each man's contribution blends well with the next in this cohesive album that is one part mellow and two parts buoyant.
