Los Angeles, CA – The barbershop is the spot where everyone in the hood goes to discuss the latest happenings.

The streets are where the happenings happen.

Both important locations set the stage for Thurz’s new “Long Live” as well as the tragic side of life it’s imitating.

“The track is an ode to all the family members and friends that have helped shaped my perspective as a man and human being,” Thurz says of the record. “Their teachings along with life experiences create the necessity for ‘realness’ to be cherished forever. Jake One provided the perfect soundscape to reflect on all that has inspired me. Honor those you love, while they’re here.
