One thing is for sure, Hip Hop is not dead! Not as long as Murs and Fashawn have something to say about it. The two beloved West Coast emcees teamed up for an epic collaboration on This Generation (Duck Down Records). The album boasts excellent production from the likes of K-Salaam and Beatnik with the dynamic duo supplying many memorable moments on the mic. This is definitely a release deserving of a permanent spot in your record collection.
Not only did they give us a free in-store performance to celebrate the album back in September 2012, the emcees also collaborated with Rock The Vote to encourage young hip hop fans to register and vote.
The message was loud and clear as Murs flaunted a retro styled Rock The Vote t-shirt. A proper album release with a proper message...Hip Hop is not dead!
