Thurz presents his 'Designer EP' at Red Bull's 30 Days In LA

Our last post about Inglewood native, Thurz, was over two years ago. Since then he's been crushing it on the high and low with some of the world's premiere up & coming talent. With a healthy resume featuring hat tips from XXL and Billboard, and a spot on MTV's 2008 Best LA Breakout Artist roster, Thurz is certainly a talent waiting to break loose. Backed by Red Bull Sound Select, the former half of rap duo U-N-I made his debut album release at the month-long Red Bull 30 Days In LA festival last night. Stacked with special guests, including legendary Compton rapper DJ Quik, the show turned out better than I expected from a relatively breakthrough artist.

Upon arriving to the venue at an alarmingly early 8:45 PM, I noticed some things few shows can boast. Before me was a healthy number of audience members, super dope merch (including screen print posters made to order), and a full band setup. "Rare," I thought, as the typical hip-hop performance features nothing more than a vocalist and DJ. Red Bull was living up to their ideology of breaking music, in more ways than one. It's about damn time, too. I can only go to so many cookie-cutter shows before I cookie cut somebody myself.

The performance was dope. Thurz's Designer EP is dope. 30 Days In LA is dope. I highly recommend checking out one of the shows If you're in LA anytime this month. You can listen to the EP below, and keep your eye out for a series of short documentaries revolving around Thurz and his personal and professional life.
