What's better than a pay-your-own-price album download? You guessed it: one that's free! Granted, many of us have liberated music files on our computer's hard drives right now. And more and more artists know the truth about making money in the music business is not in the product you created in the studio, it's the money you will hopefully make connecting with fans on tour. LA-based Murs and the prolific 9th Wonder have released Sweet Lord, now available for free download with some financial help from sportswear company Hurley. After listening to the whole album, it's not mind-blowing, but it is better than the minstrel show of bright colors, grills, and posing that passes for hip hop these days.
