Murs says he’s looking forward to curating a stage at the forthcoming Sunset Strip Music Festival, which is scheduled to take place September 20 and 21 in West Hollywood, California. 

“I never pass up an opportunity to help Hip Hop in LA progress,” Murs says in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX that premiered in the DX Daily today (August 19). “This is huge for us because if you’re from Black and Latino culture especially, we’ll come from East LA, we’ll come from South LA, from mid-city to cruise Sunset and the police are telling us, ‘No.’”

The festival, which is in its sixth year, will be having its first Hip Hop stage via Murs. DJ Quik is among the acts slated to perform at the Sunset Strip Music Festival.

“He is it for LA rap,” Murs says of DJ Quik. “It wouldn’t be right to have this big step without having him.”

Joey Fatts and Aston Matthews are among the other acts Murs says will perform at the Sunset Strip Music Festival.
