Question: what type of rappers drink almond milk, wear finger-toe sneakers and bump Drake in the Prius? Answer: rappers like Murs and Tabi Bonney, introducing the pilot episode of Murs & Tabi are Besties, a web series about the lighter side of “the rap life”. Murs recently dropped visuals for “Epic Salutations” (watch here), from his recent album Love & Rockets Vol. 1: The Transformation. Murs’ most recent release is Yumiko: Curse Of The Merch Girl, his album and graphic novel collaboration with Josh Blaylock.
He recently curated Through The Mic, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s first-ever hip-hop concert series, and this year’s installment of his annual Paid Dues festival featured Wu-Tang Clan, Odd Future, Kendrick Lamar and many more. Repping D.C. by way of Togo, Tabi is best known for his 2006 debut album A Fly Guy’s Theme and his collaborations with Wale, Raheem DeVaughn and Murs. He is also an accomplished designer and director. Besties will continue in the fall.
