It’s hard to remember the last time The Living Legends toured as an 8-deep hip-hop collective. Many members have been on the solo tip for quite awhile. Eligh recently put out his first record, Luckyiam, well, he’s like his own entity, The Grouch is doing it big in Hawaii, Scarub is often performing with Afro Classics while Sunspot Jonz can often be found updating his status on Facebook. Bicasso and Aesop on the other hand, who knows where they are? Murs, however, is still as popular as ever on his own and has been putting out his solo albums since 1997. Known for his witty lyrics and impeccable taste in collaborators, he’s worked with everyone from Aesop Rock to famed producer, 9th Wonder. Currently on tour in support of his most recent album, Love and Rockets, Volume I: The Transformation,  Murs makes his way back to Omaha with a hodge-podge of special guests. (Kyle Eustice)
