Murs-Can It Be
After listening to the godawful hyphy-tinged, "Dreadlocks" that leaked earlier this year, my expectations were severely lowered for Murs for President, the ex-Def Jukie's major-label debut. But after hearing official first single, "Can It Be," consider those odds reversed. I've been a Murs fan for a long time and this is an instant contender for one of his finest songs, with the hometown native delivering a scathing three minute indictment of everything from the stalled economy, fickle indie-rap fans, to the fact that he lost $50 k on the Paid Dues Tour. Then again, I suppose that's what you get for booking Sage Francis.
