New Living Legends EP


The Living Legends crew locked down at Encore Studio (birthplace of Dr Dre's The Chronic 2001, Eminem's Marshall Mathers album and more) to record The Gathering, set for nationwide release on their own Legendary Music label, Tuesday April 8th. Each song in this brand new collection features every single MC on every single track.

The Gathering is a seven song collection highlighted by a socially conscious anthem for peace, in which the Los Angeles via San Francisco area crew are doing their civic duty, while not forgetting to move the crowd with heavy bangers, catchy hooks and fire-spitting verses. The record was mastered by Mike Lazer (Gnarls Barkely). The Gathering is a precursor to a full-length coming in late 2008.

As a collective, the prolific Legendary crew has sold over a quarter million records between them. The line-up includes Murs, The Grouch, Luckyiam, Eligh, Scarub, Sunspot Jonz, Aesop and Bicasso,. Legendary Music has been owned and operated by the members themselves for nearly a decade.

Come on now voodoochild0716, some say Phish rode the coat tails of the dead, you say that cheese rode the coat tails of Phish. Real LAME way to compare 3 uniquely different and amazing bands. Are you another one of those people who call Kang a Trey rip off? Probably, but did you every realize they don't play the same instruments. Do you want some cheese with that Whine, try and keep a little positivity in your atitude!

Living Legends crew as a whole is sick, but my personal favorite is MURS! I cannot wait for this album, I know itll be on point.

Great, now we have to turn this into another Cheese vs. Phish vent, even though the story has nothing to do with both. This is getting old. Can't everyone just accept the fact that different people have different tastes in music?

I apologize for my previous retort, I know cheese and phish have absolutely nothing to do with this article but I simply did not like a statement previously made by another and wanted to object to what I read. I love music of all genres and I would like to make it known that I have sympathy for people who get off on only one band. I'm familiar with Aesop and am excited to check this new one out, especially since positively spun hip-hop is one of the many genres I dig. Peace and happy listening to whatever you like!

I love Murs, he is one of the best rappers out there. Living legends are pretty tight. Like Ganjjjj says, check out almost famous, and check out Murs' album "Murrys revenge". It's great.

MURS and Slug w/ the Felt series is one of my favorite duos. I also feel that MURS has a way of presenting common situations in a unique perspective.

Not trying to knock who you like, who knows, maybe we like the same emcees, but someone who makes a statement like you did (clearly you don't listen to rap/hiphop....) and does not offer a few of their emcees that are leagues above MURS (in your opinion) posts a rather useless comment. You have no credibility on a random message board, ya need to support your claims brother!

Both Felt Albums are sick, particularly Felt 2. I think Slug has more flow power than MURS. Aesop has some solid lyrics.
