MURS’ latest single, “No More Control” featuring MNDR was powerful enough before the visual component. But now the L.A. emcee comes through with this gripping, politically charged video for the Have A Nice Life single, and hammers his point in even harder. The video takes on the issues of police brutality and black on black crime. Read some words from MURS about it, below. Also, get the official track listing to Have A Nice Life, which will be out on May 19th via Strange Music.
‘No More Control’ is about not letting the media or the powers that be control us or guide us into thinking that the problem is anything other than violence. A lot of my contemporaries would have you believe that the problem is just the police, which, I am not disregarding at all, I am just as sickened and fed up as everyone else with what we’ve been seeing on the news. But what about what’s not making the news? It is very rare that someone from the hip-hop community and the black community would stand up and say, ‘I think the majority of the opportunity for change is still in our control.’ They want us to be victims, to think ‘march and protest’ because that’s the victim role. Yes, the police are out of control, but what can we control? We can control the culture of violence in our community. Instead of looking at what we can control, we’re looking at the justice system to convict these one, two, three or one hundred police officers. Bringing these killers to justice is only part of the solution.
