Anyone familiar with hip hop’s Murs knows he loves comic books. He raps about ‘em, he chats about ‘em, and he freestyles about ‘em (just check his Freestyle 101). Now he gets a chance to review ‘em as he fills in for his favorite host, the great Blair Butler, on Fresh Ink Online as she darts down to San Diego for Comic-Con. In fact, by the time you read this, Murs will have joined her at the famed comic book convention, but not before chatting about some of his favorite comics, including X-Factor, Queen and Country, DMZ, Black Lightning, Scott Pilgrim, Wolverine: Old Man Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova and Red Robin.
Plus, make sure to listen carefully for Murs’ controversial stand on one of the top writers in comics today. Is there a rap-comic beef a-brewin’? Will caps get peeled? Likely not, but it sure is fun to imagine such a thing, ain’t it?
Yes, you’ll soon see this crazy-haired rapper knows his stuff and you can quiz him on his comic book knowledge on this summer’s Rock The Bells tour, where he’ll be serving as an MC…and likely serving some MCs with his deadly rhyme skills.
Check out Murs on Freestyle 101 after the jump…
