Everyone has that out of pocket uncle that makes weddings,

barbecues and reunions more entertaining due to their drunken antics. Well East

New York’s Uncle Murda ain’t him. The now ex-Def Jam signee is aiming to

body the Rap game, so family friendly Hip-Hop isn’t in the cards at the moment.


Last year Murda was rolling with

the Roc and his name was ringing thanks to mixtapes

with DJ Green Lantern, guest verses with Fabolous and

Jay-Z [“Brooklyn”], and his own “Bullet, Bullet.” But after S. Carter broke out from the Def Jam offices, the

momentum on Murda’s project came to a virtual

standstill. Now free of his deal, Murda is back on

his B.I., dropping mixtapes [Back on my Bulls**t] and freestyles to get his name ringing once



Consider it his mission to become your rap slinging, and occasionally

gun busting, favorite Uncle.

AllHipHop.com:  So, you’re a free agent at the moment?


Uncle Murda: Yes, I’m currently a free agent. I’ve got GMG

Entertainment, Manhood and Violator Management for the job though. I’ve been

off Def Jam for like two or three months.

Was there any red tape leaving the label?


Uncle Murda: No, everything was good money. I got all my

records. Ain’t no bulls**t.   Leaving wasn’t on bad terms, ya

know. They on they kind of bulls**t. They ain’t really prepare that machine

behind me. Got me out here doing everything on my damn own.


AllHipHop.com:  When exactly did you sign? Do you

remember the exact date or the month?


Uncle Murda: Nah, it was like a year and

a half ago.       


AllHipHop.com: Ok, so after you signed, what happened?


Uncle Murda: After Jay-Z leaving Def Jam—after

he left I guess they kinda felt they wasn’t taking on

none of the projects that he really had over there like that I guess. They ain’t really f**k with me like

that after Jay left. ‘Cause that’s who I really used to f**k with, I’d go up there  have a

meeting with Jay or I’d go to Roc the Mic I f**ked

around with Jay so once he left Def Jam it was like my whole little thing with

Def Jam was kinda, you know…

Uncle Murda – Brooklyn We Go Hard – Coast 2 Coast 60 – Hosted By Uncle Murda

AllHipHop.com: Are you still Roc-A-Fella



Uncle Murda: Yes, I’m still cool with the

Roc. I still f**k around with the Roc. I’m not on Roc-A-Fella




Are you looking for a new situation right now or you trying to do yourself?


Uncle Murda: Oh hell yeah, you know we’re trying to get that

money. If we got to do it ourselves so be it, but the buzz has just opened back

up, it’s the first quarter so we definitely trying to go in there and get some

of that new money right quick.



Any contenders right now?


Uncle Murda:  S**t, everybody. We gon’ holla at everybody, I told you the buzz has opened back up

so we actually taking a bunch of meetings this week. I’m turning it back up.

Green Lantern f/ Uncle Murda & Avery Storm “Crazy World” Video

AllHipHop.com: So

you dropped the “Crazy World” joint with Green Lantern  and Avery Storm. What’s your take on Oscar Grant now that

the cops is actually being charged? How far do you see

it going?



Murda: What they charging him with man?

They charging him with murder this time?



Yeah, they’re charging him with murder.


Uncle Murda: Yeah, ok. 

Well it’s about f***in’ time. 

I know they know me a lot as “Mr. F**k the Police.” I don’t be saying

that s**t for no reason. Like I be trying to explain,

you got the Sean Bell incident, you got this incident. And there’s

so many others where they shot the boy on the roof from Brooklyn [Ed. Note: Timothy Stansbury

in 2004]. There’s so many times, they shot the kid

[Amadou Diallo] 41 times up

there. It’s just so much s**t that don’t make the news or might not make the

newspaper that the cops be doing, but n****s in the hood know about this s**t.


So that’s why I just be speaking on so much violence towards

those motherf***ers and

disrespect ‘cause they just be doing so much bulls**t now. I had shootouts with

them back in the days, my brother had shootouts with them, my peoples, they

shot one of my mans before, they ripped down the libraries in my hood and put

up a f***in’ P.O. building, they f***ed n***a’s little barbeques up in

the projects. Bad enough  mother***ers live in the projects,

they trying to barbeque out there. It might be Cypress Day in the projects, they give you your day. It might

be Cypress Days, Pink Houses Days, it’s Marcy Day.

S**t like that; they come, they try to shut your barbeque down after like 10:00,

12:00 trying to make everybody go the f**k upstairs. I’m like come on man, motherf***ers in the hood struggling,

leave them the f**k alone man.  Just

to show they little power, I just can’t stand them motherf***ers.

What would make Uncle Murda decide to roll with this

label versus that label?


Uncle Murda: Well, s**t, I feel that whoever Uncle Murda get down with they got to just know what they dealing

with.  It’s more than music, I’m a

movie so you got to market and promote this s**t right. I need somebody to see

what I am and really believe in it and go hard. It ain’t even to me about the upfront money, I don’t

care about that s**t too much as long as you gon’

market and promote my project the right way and really believe in it. I need

somebody to f**k 

with me like how Puff was f***in’ with Biggie and believed in

him. They got to believe in me, the label got to really believe in me and see

the movie that I’m trying to paint, see the picture I’m trying to put out. So I

got to get that vibe from a motherf***er.


AllHipHop.com:  So, for the uninitiated, what are you bringing?


Uncle Murda: I feel like with s**t you get now, there’s some

exceptions out there, but I just feel like I paint a picture for you. When you

hear my music you can damn near see what’s going on if you ain’t slow. If everything is functioning upstairs

when you hear my music you can see what’s going on. I paint really that visual

for you, you see it. T hat’s what I’m really bringing it’s like a movie with me

man and it’s so real, it’s entertaining and it ain’t

just real, it’s funny and gangsta at the same time

and I got the sexy s**t for the b****es, ‘cause I

gets mad p***y. I know how to cover all that s**t, man.



What were your influences music-wise, Hip-Hop-wise that obviously comes out

when you start spittin’ on the mic?


Uncle Murda: Basic influences come from like the s**t I go

through in the streets, man, like s**t I  been through. Right now one of

my little brothers locked up for attempted murder, so it’s just be like the

experience you go through and people that you around go through. I just bring

that into my music, as far as them rap heads who out here in music, it’s not

like you want to outshine them, you just want to be on your s**t, you want

people to speak about you how they spoke about them so that’s a little bit of a

drive too.


I appreciated the Jay-Z’s, the Biggie Smalls, the 2Pac’s,

DMX when he was on his s**t, Nas’s first three albums

when he was on some real street s**t. I’m not taking nothing away from what he

doing now but I’m talking about the s**t I could relate to I was into a little

more you know what I’m saying? Like The Lox when they was

first hitting the scene, CNN, Mobb Deep when they was

on their s**t, s**t like that.


AllHipHop.com: With

those artists you mentioned, that gritty street element they relayed isn’t as

prominent in Hip-Hop music anymore.


Uncle Murda: [It] definitely is

missing.  You got certain n***as

doing stuff for the streets that I like. For instance, Young Jeezy, I f**k with him, my n****s f**k with him. I

be feeling what he do for the street part of this s**t, he does it good. I

don’t give a f**k where 

a n***a from, west coast, east coast, south. If a n***a is doing

it and it sounding good, it’s good and I feel like he’s bringing that back a

little bit too, he’s giving it that little street essence still, he be sticking

to the script so I can definitely appreciate that.



Backtracking a little bit, can you just recount real quick how exactly you got

down with  Green

Lantern ‘cause he’s the one that put you in the game, right? Is that fair to



Uncle Murda: Yeah, once I got with Green it was on. I had

hooked up with Green through my manager, Hood. He co-manages me with Chris Lighty from Violator. First, [Hood] gave Green some of my

music to play, Green was like, “Yo, man I been

hearing a little bit about this kid, but I didn’t really get on him like that,”

but when my manager gave him the music he heard the s**t, he was f***in with it

like, “Oh ok,”  so I’m spittin’ some s**t.  He’s like, Nah

I don’t want to just play this n***a’s music, I want

to go get this n***a. I think the n***a  Murda  got something, I want to get with him.

First, he was just giving him music to play, as he’s playing the music he

started really feeling it and was like I want to go back in with this n***a, I

think me and this n***a can do some s**t.

 Brooklyn (Feat. Jay-Z & Uncle Murda) – Fabolous

AllHipHop.com: Oh,

so it started out as he came in like, Yo I got these Uncle

Murda tracks, can you rock with’em?


Uncle Murda: They had their little relationship, so he let

him know I’m f***in’ with this new n***a, yo my man Murda, show him a little love, play his s**t.  I had put out a couple of mixes, yo I’m feelin’ it,  I’ma

spin this s**t on Ho t9, you know put him on a couple of mixes. He was feeling

the music the n***a was giving it to him and he let my

manager know, “Yo, I want to work with this n***a

man, like let’s make something happen,” and from there we just started cooking

up classics, man.



What’s up with the rift you had with Papoose?


Uncle Murda: That s**t  dead man. That s**was nothing man

in the beginning, that s**t over with, we swept it under the rug.



And what else can people expect from you soon?


Uncle Murda: I got this new s**t  I’m working on, firstdegreemurda.com.

murders that’s going on in America, outside America and all that s**t. Got your
