    Last Definitive Jux release: Murs 3:16 Year released: 2004

    A stalwart of underground hip-hop as a member of Los Angeles' longstanding Living Legends crew, Murs' tenure with Definitive Jux came briefly and at the tail end of the label's peak period. In 2003, Murs made his Def Jux debut with The End of the Beginning... In 2004 he followed up with Murs 3:16, his collaboration with then Little Brother producer 9th Wonder. The project would become one of Def Jux's highest sellers, a beloved, focused set that saw both artists at full force. After his short run Def Jux, Murs would go on to sign a deal with Warner Brothers–an arrangement that would only produce one album. Murs has remained as busy as any artist in hip-hop, touring and promoting as a part of the Paid Dues concert series in addition to releasing a steady stream of new music, most recently The Final Adventure, his fifth and last collaborative album with 9th Wonder.
