This is a must have for any real hip-hop fan. Having never heard anything by Murs before buying this CD or even anything on the defjux label I was a little unsure of what I was getting. But it turned out to be one of the best CD’s I have heard for a long time. Having recently brought Little Brothers album I was aware of Ninth Wonder who does the production on the whole album and Phonte who appears on ‘The Animal’ so I was expecting something along those lines and I was not disappointed.
Although there are only ten songs, which have a running time of 35 minutes this in no way detracts anything from the album. The whole album form start to end is truly amazing, from ninth wonders production to the brilliant vocal and lyrical talents of Murs.
Murs ability to tell stories both humorously and compellingly throughout the CD, have the listener in awe, ‘Freak These Tales’ is a classic example in which Murs tells the story of his love life and sexual experiences from a young boy and throughout his life and for me this is the best song on the album which I have to listen to at least twice before I can go onto the next song and is worth the price of the disc alone. My other favourite tracks include Bad Man, Pain, 3:16 and Walk Like A Man, don’t get me wrong though there are no bad tracks on the album, which I believe is why there are only ten songs because Murs and Ninth didn’t want the album to sound sloppy by putting any filler on it.
Do yourself a favour and buy this cd, if you don’t you will be missing out on a true masterpiece

...Have a little fun while makin' music of significnace. A really solid album, Murs is one of the best storytellers in rap and he covers a suprisingly wide variety of subjects as only he can with clear and punchy rhymes. Meanwhile 9th Wonder takes care of the production for the whole album which ensures every track has a top quality beat, as you would expect from the former Little Brother producer. It's not a long record at around 35 minutes, but then neither was Illmatic...

I'm a greenlander, not pretty good in english, so I hope this will be helpful to you.
Reading OneBeLo's S.O.N.O.G.R.A.M. review, I found out that Murs should be a good rapper, so I got this cd 3:16 the 9th edition.
I'm not that familiar with 9th wonder or Murs, I started with this cd, even though it's some time ago it was released.
Straight to the point, this cd is great, it got a great Intro, with sci-fi beats, I can accept it.
The rest production is great, like The Pain, Freak these tales, Walk like a man; with different beat for each verse, soo great, with heartfelt lyrics, about his bestfriend died, and the vengeance he had.
This album is worth buying, got nothing but thought-through-lyrics, what do you call it.
I give it 4½ stars

Highly impressive album 6 Jun. 2004
By Carl D. Foggey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has been my personal first time hearing of Murs but I have been a avid follower of 9th Wonder and Little Brother. Murs lyrically held his own on this LP. He doesn't offer up mind-bending metaphors but the brother definitely has flow. As far as subject matter, songs like "Bad Man" and "Pain" talk of rejection and the difficulty of finding the right woman instead the typical male bravado that is all too common in the mainstream industry. As far as just straight spitting, "3:16" and "Animal" are perfect. On "Animal" Phonte from Little Brother rips it. The track itself sounds like a bonus track from "The Listening". On "Walk Like A Man" Murs goes into the storytelling of his friend being killed in front of him and him getting his remorseful revenge. Subject matter aside, 9th changes beats after every verse to fit the affect of Murs' verses. "And This Is For...", Murs speaks of white rappers, white fans that take Hip-Hop and black music as a trend. Not a new subject, but Murs gets his point across without sounding "whiney" (see Benzino). Overall, ths album is a definite buy for those that appreciate Hip-Hop with a pulse.

Short but Sweet 5 April 2004
By Jesse Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Murs is one of my favorite rappers. He's not really all that skilled, at least on as far as lyrically assaulting people not the mic, but he has a really personal way of rapping that makes anybody feel like they can relate. I haven't heard any Little Brother so I don't know much about 9th Wonder other than this album, but he's been getting a lot of hype, so I expected nice beats and I got them. It's a good pairing. This album is short, which tends to be a turn-off for me, but on the bright side it doesn't get boring and there's no filler.
I bought this more for Murs than 9th. Most of the time on this album, he's story-telling and/or talking about women. The intro is a good way to kick off the album, with a good verse to get us in the mood and a nice electric beat from 9th Wonder. An intro that adds something to the album, not one of those pointless ones that needs to go. "Bad Man," "Rainy Days," and "Freak These Tales" are about women. The first is about how he just can't seem to be a nice guy and a player at the same time, the second about his troubles finding a woman, and the last about getting laid. With all these tracks, Murs does what he does best...he comes across as an average guy you might meet off the street, kicking rhymes about real life, but with his own quirky style to make it entertaining. "Sitcom rap," as he himself calls it. "Trevor an' Them" and "Walk Like a Man" display his story-telling abilities. The first is a just a funny story about a robbery gone wrong, but the second takes a more serious turn, talking about the death of his best friend and his quest for vengeance. Again, it's nice because he does it as a guy with problems and not a hardcore thug. "H-U-S-T-L-E" talks about his different methods for making money when he was a kid. It seems like it's taking a jab at rappers who brag about selling coke. "3:16" and "The Animal" are more or less battle tracks, which are Murs' weak point because he has neither the lyrics nor the voice to command the mic. Still, his slightly off sense of humor makes these worthwhile. "And This is For" is a total surprise, because it confronts real issues, which Murs didn't really do on his last album. He attacks thug rappers and whites who don't respect the hip-hop culture, which is dangerous but perhpas all the more admirable since most of his fans are white.
9th's production didn't blow my mind, but I can see where his success comes from. He reminds me of DJ Premier because of his skill for putting samples together and knowing how to set the right mood for each track. "The Pain," similar to RZA's "Rainy Dayz," perfectly captures the sorrow Murs is trying to get across. "Bad Man" is fun and energetic. "And This is For" sounds...how do I explain it...conscious. It matches Murs' grief at the problems in the hip-hop world. The "Walk Like a Man" beat changes between grieving for Murs' friend and truimph at his revenge. I liked the tones in the beats. My problem is their lack of intensity. You can barely tell the drums are even there, and the instruments just never seem sharp or aggressive enough. They suit Murs alright, since he's not a very intense rhymer, but they wouldn't be good for battling. You couldn't call them "hard beats." Maybe he makes them harder for other rappers, though.
In the booklet for Murs' Def Jux debut, it says "Murs is your best friend." I don't think that really came across as much here. Partly, there were more sad tracks, but I think it's largely because of the track "And This is For," which has caused a lot of controversy online. Maybe it's because I'm white that I think the thoughts expressed in this track lowered my enjoyment of the album, like I'm not 100% comfortable listening to it. Nevertheless, that song speaks the truth for the most part, and it would be wrong of Murs to make his music too "white-friendly" if that's not what he's feeling, so I still think it's good he put it on here and I commend him for making it. As for the rest of the album, his main strengths...personality, quirky humor, and story-telling...shine through clearly. One of the best in 2004 so far.

Self-Confession & Brutally honest, one of the finest of 2004 19 July 2004
By fetish_2000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Seemingly one of the few rappers willing to take a commercial risk, Rapper 'Murs', heads into deeply personal and introspective territory with this most confessional of rap
albums. Harking back to the back template of just a rapper (Murs) & producer (the 9th wonder), they strip back on the flashy bravado and thug stories and produce a rap album more akin to introspective singer/songwriters.
Murs isn't looking to use this record to make amends for his life or the things he's done in his time, the stories here are of a gangsters daily life. but told from the perspective of an ordinary man/hustler, trying to make
sense of his way of life. Murs himself likens his personality more "Coldplay Than Ice-T".
And what follows is a (albeit Short), album of semi-interlinked
stories, told from the perspective of someone not completely at easy with his lifestyle.
Producer 'the 9th wonder', is something of a minor Revelation, by largely ignoring loud, beat heavy arrangements, and composing a series of tracks loosely based around samples of dusty classic soul and 70's funk.
(think 'Kayne west' style sampled arrangements). and its this production that adds to the subdued nature of the tracks. And gives the lyrics more substance & emotional attachment.
Those expecting the lyrics to have been 'watered down' due to the
introspective nature of the record, will be glad to hear that this is a harsh and unflinching collection of stories being relayed here. Murs doesn't shy away from looking at the material in a Cold, disinchanted and uncompromising
fashion. Whether it's finding no luck with women ("The Pain"), or detailing his sexual encounters ("Freak These Tales"), paying tribute to friends ("Walk Like a man"), or laying down a seething argument for the general publics love for white rappers, but failing to give just recognition to similar black
artists "And this is For....", everything is handled with a no-holds barred enactment, and will prove to be a difficult listen for some.
Admittedly there are few laughs here, as the mood is one of a cerebral, affected, & reflective understanding of his environment and the people around him, but those paying attention will notice the occasional tongue in cheek sense of humour, buried beneath the social commentary and self-examination.
As to whether this is a great album, thats not ever really in question, as Murs elevates himself into intelligent progressive hip-hop territory with the likes of "Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli", but because this is a confessional album of sorts, it'll prove more than a little heavy going for some, and is probably better suited to the occasional listen, as opposed to something that gets heavy rotation. Thats not to take away from this exceptional album, its just an album than covers so many subjects in such a short space of time (the running time of the album is no more than 35 minutes) that it truly needs the listeners full-attention to extract the best from it. But those willing to give the time and patience, this is easily one of 2004's finest rap albums. recommended

Hip-Hop is still alive in 2004!!! 1 April 2004
By warrior33 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First Jay-Z drops the Black Album, then Kanye West hits us with The College Dropout, now Murs gives us another classic album. The beats are amazing thanks to 9th Wonder of course. and Murs gets very personal with his lyrics. Another thing I like about this album is that it's short, no filler, no skits, and every song is tight. The best 10 track album since Illmatic in my opinion. And since it's shorter than your average album I'll go through every track.
1. Intro - This is a short song but it's tight, I like the beat he talks over better than the beat he raps over. (4.5/5)
2. Bad Man - I love this song, the beat is sick and I like the voice in the background. (5/5)
3. 3:16 - Another tight beat and Murs rips it. (5/5)
4. The Pain - One of the slower songs on the album, Murs talks about how he can't get any women. (3.5/5)
5. Trevor An' Them - A funny story about how Murs bumps into his friend while he's robbing a liquor store. (4/5)
6. Freak These Tales - A great song about Murs' various relationships with women over another hot beat, I really like the chorus. (5/5)
7. H-U-S-T-L-E - This is a great song about how Murs used to try to hustle everythig except drugs. (5/5)
8. Walk Like A Man - This song starts out with a country type beat, then goes into a soulful beat, then finishes with a jazzy beat while Murs tells some personal stories. (4.5/5)
9. And This Is For... - This is a really deep song, Murs talks about how rappers nowadays are too flashy, and how he's losing all his black fans, and even though he has mostly white fans he's not selling as many albums as white rappers. (5/5)
10. The Animal (feat. Phonte) - The CD ends with a great appearance from Phonte of Little Brother. Murs tears it down once again, and the beat is tight, what more could you want? (5/5)

Murs is a "Bad Man!" on the "H.U.S.T.L.E." 8 Mar. 2005
By Marcelle D. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Four-and-a-half, rather. Dopeness abounds in this brief but beautiful effort that bombards you with lyrical niceties until the end, only to have you beg for more. 9th Wonder does a spectacular job of beat making here, Fruity Loops references and all.

Beats:

No doubt you have heard of 9th Wonder, the most noteworthy reference point being the critically acclaimed "The Listening" from his NC partners Lil' Brotha. He has also done beats for the likes of folks such as Jay-Z. On this album he creates an eclectic sort of atmosphere that wraps itself around Murs, both enhancing his lyrical potency and cultivating his mad man vibe. Check out "Bad Man!" and "H.U.S.T.L.E" to hear what I'm saying, dig? 9th nearly achieves perfection with this album, and is just what one would expect from the Fruity Loops master.

Lyrics:

Just like Murs is made for these beats, he comes to smash the world with everything he's got. Gems like "...throw my nuts on the finish line, cause I come to win..." never disappoint, and will keep your head nodding. He also tickles your funny bone with the joints "Trevor an' Them" and "Freak These Tales". Dude is on it like he has something to prove, making me admire him both for his simplicity and his fervor. This is more of what you need, and less of what you want, if you catch my drift.

Lasting Appeal:

Dope album, man. I mean, I was shocked that it was so short, but what I felt was that it was all meaningful and powerful as well. I just let the album ride on through for two days straight. Murs puts an assortment of joy, angst, poetry, and sorrow into his work, and I can appreciate the love with which it was handled. 9th has definitely gained a reputation of making some great music, and this is more of what you should already be accustomed to. Get this, kick back, and enjoy.

I recommend picking up The Rapper Big Pooh's new album "Sleepers" as well. Murs makes an appearance which is quite impressive.
