Be Connected: Public Conversation with Murs
In this wide-ranging talk at Beyù Caffè in downtown Durham, legendary Los Angeles-based hip-hop artist Murs discusses his career, influences, and record-setting 26-hour rap that landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2016. Moderated by Joseph Winters (Duke Religious Studies and African and African American Studies).
**As part of Murs’ residency at Duke, the public is also invited to attend the first half of Mark Anthony Neal and 9th Wonder’s “History of Hip-Hop” class on Wednesday, February 7 from 6:15-7:30 PM in White Lecture Hall on Duke’s East Campus, where Murs will be visiting.
Murs’ residency will culminate in a performance with longtime collaborator and Durham icon 9th Wonder at Motorco Music Hall on the evening of Thursday, February 8. Tickets and info available HERE.
