Murs & LACMA Present First-Ever Hip Hop Concert Series, Plus 3MG Reunion
"For too long, Los Angeles hip hop has been seen as one dimensional 'gangsta rap.' With this new series, we're giving our city's hip hop artists an amazing platform to show not only our community, but the world, that we have so much more to offer." – Murs
Legendary emcee Murs has joined forces with L.A. museum LACMA and Cashmere Agency for their new Through the Mic concert series, which will explores contemporary Los Angeles hip hop, with an emphasis on the diversity of L.A.-based artists. Co-curated by LACMA and Murs, concerts will take place on the third Thursday of every month, May through October 2012.
To kick off the series, 3MG reunites for their first performance together in more than five years. 3MG’s Murs, Eligh and Scarub met as students at Los Angeles’s Hamilton High and released Gypsy’s Luck before joining forces with The Mystik Journeymen and The Grouch to form The Living Legends. The local trio returns to the stage less than four miles from where it all began.
