MURS Announces ‘Through The Mic’ Monthly Concert Series at Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art
The Living Legend alum announced today that he’ll be co-curating an upcoming monthly concert series at the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art (LACMA), called, “Through The Mic”.
“For too long, Los Angeles hip hop has been seen as one dimensional ‘gangsta rap.’,” MURS wrote in the official release for the event. “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.”
On the third Thursday of each month, in front of the LACMA’s urban lights display, Los Angeles hip hop artists will have the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents, in an attempt to “introduce” hip hop the LA citizens.
The series is slated to kick off on May 17, with a performance from 3 Melancholy Gypsies (3MG) — MURS, Scarub, Eligh. The monthly series is scheduled to run through October 18 and will take place at 8:00 PM.
