Biography

Seven years since it’s inception, there has been much debate on how FELT came to be, but the end result is a playful banter between two seasoned MC’s coming together to have lyrical exchanges about life, love and women. In 2002 with production from The Grouch (Living Legends), Slug and Murs set their sights on an all grown up Wednesday Addams and created Felt: A Tribute to ... Read more in Amazon's Felt Store

Editorial Reviews

Two of the biggest and most charismatic indie rappers are at it again. Slug (Atmosphere/Rhymesayers) & Murs (Living Legends/Def Jux) return to pay homage to another underground actress in need of a little well-deserved attention. (Felt 1 was a tribute to Christina Ricci.) This time they brought Atmosphere producer Ant to create the musical bed for this fun filled funk ride. The record seems to borrow more from Ice-T, DJ Quik, King Tee, and AMG's catalog than the usual Just Ice, Rakim, and KRS-One that the boys favor. This is one of the more exciting albums for the summer, and its made to play out in the heat. Rhymesayers. 2005.

I was a fan of the first Felt CD (A Tribute to Christina Ricci). But I really didn't feel that it was up to par with Murs' and Slug's solo works. The first album was something I would give a 3-4 star rating, simply because it didn't shine like Murs' "The End Of The Beginning" or Atmosphere's "Seven's Travels". Murs and Slug are kings in underground hip-hop, and I wasn't about to dismiss an attempt at doing it better the second time (Felt: Vol. 2). I'm pleased to say that this time around, they did it much, much better. The beats brought forth by The Grouch on the first album were decent, but there was definitely a sense of unity that was missing. This time around, they opted for Ant to produce the album, which was a great call. It doesn't sound like two rappers and a producer throwing together some songs anymore. They actually sound like a complete group, composing a riveting and cohesive set of underground anthems. Ant's beats and rhythms really bring out the best in these two emcees, creating some truly infectious sets.

Bread and butter would be the best way to describe the attack by Murs and Slug. You'd be hard pressed to find a collaboration on the caliber of this album. As you know, Slug and Murs are longtime veterans in the underground. They have a history of working together dating back to the "Overcast" days, and this album is proof that their work has paid off. Best of all, this is a deeper look into the personas of Murs and Slug. You can feel the fun these two are having in the studio, which gives it a personal and infectious feel. These guys got the story rhymes down to an exact science. Like their solo efforts, the lyrics are fairly easy to follow (in comparison to artists like Aesop Rock), and they got a sweet old school flair that's intoxicatingly memorable.

All hail the most slept-on producer in hip hop. Ant, a champion of the funk, is perhaps the most important element of this record. While Slug and Murs are perhaps the best underground duo since Dilated Peoples started doing mainstream numbers, and no doubt they spit some hot fire on this album, this is beatmaker Ant's show from the get-go. 15 tracks of solid, listenable beats - not a single dud. I cannot think of a single weak track on here. You could have William Shatner doing spoke word over these jams and you would be like "no seriously, this is nice". Stand-out track: Marvin Gaye. Although I'm losing faith in producers who rely on sped up soul hooks this is one exception to the rule. Ant lays down some lovely slow-rolling funk complimented by Gaye's crooning voice from "Trouble Man" or something like that. If you're a beat nut you need to give this a listen.

Murs and Slug are consistent rappers. I'm not crazy about them but I won't dent that they've got lyrics for days and their flow is tight. They make a dream pair because they're both extremely "underground" in their own right - Slug being the self-depreciating midwestern grumpy drawers and Murs being the antithesis to throwback jerseys and oversized fitted caps (read: "And This is For" from Murs 3:16). I enjoy their sense of humour and particularly enjoy the fact that they don't come of as underground softies rapping about how "negative" the industry is. They rap about real life - the kind of thing that is not too far detached from your own life - if that is possible, and I can dig that.

Cop this album because the beats are nuts and Ant needs some recognition. Stop riding 9th Wonder's jock and go listen to what a janitor from the midwest conjured up while on his day off from the night shift.

Felt 2 makes all of the possibilities of bringing Slug/Rhymesayers and Murs/Living Legends/Definitive Jux come to pass. The first Felt album was good - but it felt rushed. The lyrics weren't always what they could be nor was the production by The Grouch - who is one of the best, most prolific, and underated producers out there - but it didn't seem they all had enough time.

So with Felt 2 they changed the formula a bit. They obviously had more time to make everything tight and had a larger budget but the biggest change was ANT from Rhymesayers on production. ANT brought Felt's sound up to a level rarely heard but often imitated. ANT's done the same with the Atmosphere and Brother Ali records to name a few.

The entire Felt 2 album is great but the phone conversation 'tracks' could be left out. And if you are unfarmiliar with Slug or Mur's lyrics you may be offended by their frankness - especially females, but at their show there are a lot of women so maybe not - but their ability to tell it like it is without reservation makes them great.

If you haven't checked out any releases from Rhymesayers, Legendary Music, or Definitive Jux this is a great album to pick up and see if you like the sound. If you do, those 3 labels have many other great albums to pick up in the future.

It's a real solid album, definitely better than the first Felt...(though Grouch's production on tracks "The Two" and "Suzanne Vega" on that should NOT be overlooked.)

So...is the main difference between underground and mainstream rap now the depth and degree of emotion put into describing various sexual encounters? (esp. on "Breaker Down Like a Shotgun")...I'm starting to get a little sick of the vulgar sex descriptions regarding both. It's like, Yeah, I know you guys get much ass...you're rappers...I've assumed that from the get-go...I'm just getting a bit sick of wincing at lines when I'm playing this stuff for females, esp. when I'm hyping it up as cool...(couldn't have felt that way more when listening to Murs' 3:16, 9th Edition...)

Moving past the noteworthy gripe...

Ant's production is top-notch, as always, and Slug is continuing to craft one hell of a career. Murs is solid, too; I'm just more of Slug fan - feel he has more to say...and it seems as though there's more Slug than Murs on this, which is fine by me. (Anyone else notice that?)

"Fear and Loathing in Life Vegas", "Woman Tonight", "Early Mornin' Tony", and "I Shot A Warhol" are all excellent tracks; I'm fully confident they'll be getting the most iPod playlist love. The writing on "The Biggest Lie" is superb, so focus on the lyrics and absorb them all, even though the beat's perhaps the most bland on the whole album.

All in all, I'll take a Felt 2 over a Slim Thug: Already Platinum any day of the week. 4.5 stars.
