Murray's Revenge is the second collaboration album from California rapper Murs (of Living Legends) and North Carolina producer 9th Wonder (formerly of Little Brother).

Like their first collaboration Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition, the album features ten songs, all produced by 9th Wonder, and is less than 40 minutes long. This effort was Murs' most commercially successful release, being his first to break into the Billboard 200 album chart. The album features guest appearances from Joe Scudda and Big Pooh. Murray's Revenge featured music videos for "L.A." "Yesterday & Today" and "Murray's Revenge." The album is profanity free.
