The Living Legends are back on the road. With one member (Murs) on the verge of a mainstream debut and others working on albums, side projects and more, the crew managed to band together to release The Gathering earlier this year and they are getting together to release another LP soon. For now, the LL crew is hitting the road with some of the new material and some of the old tracks that made them underground favorites nation wide.
Fans don’t have to wait for the new album long, though. New material will be released in the form of Legendary Music Vol. 2. The new album is already being mastered and the final touches are being done now. We will bring you more information as it comes.
Staying with The Gathering, they also have a contest for “The After Hours” video. Fans will submit entries of verses or entire videos made entirely by them. After all entries are in, the Legends will pick the best ones, edit them together and make their entire video out of that footage. Winners will receive backstage passes and other prizes to go along with it. Rules can be found by visiting their website, http://legendarymusic.net/contests/html.

In the meanwhile, HipHopDX caught up with Murs to discuss Murs For President. Murray revealed to DX a surprising guest.
“The biggest thing to me is that DJ Quik mixed the whole record. I got to sit with him every day. He’s a fucking genius!”
Murs For President will drop on Warner in September.
