Murs had much to say at SXSW 2015 about Christian hip hop. In Part 1 of his interview with, he urged artists to embrace the Christian rapper label.

“Come out of the closet,” he said. “All you’re going to be doing is glorifying your God and making a boatload of money. What’s the problem? I don’t get it when these guys say, ‘I’m not a Christian rapper.’ Yes you are!”

Murs dropped more knowledge in the second and final part of the interview.

“[Ruslan] said, ‘Yeah, but when you’re a Christian, people expect so much of you’ … What does that say about the power of your God’s name?” Murs said.
