Featuring Wrestlers & Robbers, Murs Adapts His Brand New Album Into 1 Wild Short Film

BY KEVIN CORTEZ • AUGUST 16, 2019

After 15 long years together, Murs & 9th Wonder are reportedly taking their final ride. If that’s the case, it’s a truly great and memorable trip into the sunset. One week ago (August 9) saw the release of what appears to be Murs, 9th Wonder, and The Soul Council’s latest collaboration album, The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over. With cinematic lyrics for years, Murs brings a companion mini-movie out to celebrate one of the grouping’s best collaborative LPs.

The 13-minute work stars Murs and features five songs off the latest release, including “The Hulk,” “My Hero,” “F*ck Them,” “Cancun ’08” and “Ga$ Station Gucci Belt.” With a hefty budget (according to Murs), the fantastic film features wrestlers, strippers, and heat-packing stick-up girls. However, it all plays into the veteran MC’s interests.

“As a kid, I loved Hip-Hop, comic books, cinema, and sports,” Murs told Okay Player of the piece. “When I hit high school and realized my growth spurt wasn’t coming. I took to smoking and selling weed. When I graduated. I traded weed for women. When I got married… well, I think you get the point. I’ve always loved comic books, cinema, and Hip-Hop. This video was a chance to combine all three.”
