posted September 24, 2007 12:00:00 AM CDT | 105 comments

Word on the street is that this dude has mad street cred and people want to really know if Brooklyns Uncle Murda is real. At this current moment, Uncle Murda has one of the strongest buzzes in hip-hop right now. Uncle Murdas might be called a very negative artist as he seems to glorify the violence and tragedies that go on in our poverty-stricken communities. You can hate Uncle Murda for what he raps about, but what if this is all he knows? As they say youre a product of your environment and maybe this is what Uncle Murda just is.

Brought into the game by one of the best mixtape DJs in hip-hop - The Evil Genius DJ Green Lantern - Uncle Murda caught the streets ear with his violent stories on the mixtape Uncle 2 Hard for Hip-Hop. Ever since that the streets wanted more and before you knew it Uncle Murda went hard again feeding you Respect The Shooter once again by DJ Green Lantern. For some reason, Uncle Murda hates the police. With that being said, it looks like he is bringing back that N.W.A. element. Whether you believe Uncle Murda is real or not matters not to HipHopDX, but after you read this interview you might think twice.

HHDX: Murda its been a lot of talk in the streets with the whole situation with the entourage and Papoose so whats good? (Ed. Note: In regards to the "incident", it is said that Uncle Murda was leaving a T-Pain party when he was assaulted by one of Papoose's entourage members)
UM
: I dont really wanna keep talking about that bullshit, because that shit is getting so corny and old but the bottom line is that aint nothing happen to Uncle Murda. Thats the bottom line aint nothing happen to Uncle Murda not a thing getting laid on me man.

HHDX: I know you dont wanna talk too much about it, but how you feel about DJ Kay Slay saying some stuff recently?
UM
: Like I told you I really dont wanna keep going back and forth with that shit, because its causing whole lot of conflict so I dont even wanna go back and forth with that bullshit man. I dont really give a fuck about what anybody says.

HHDX: So I see Uncle Murda holds his own.
UM
: Yeah, you know what Im saying? I dont give a fuck about what nobody says.

HHDX: Its a lot of talk that you got a lot of respect in the streets can you tell me why?
UM
: Because I put it down in the streets, I put that motherfuckin work in ya heard. Whether it was getting money, whether you gotta bust a nigga upside his motherfuckin head, whether its holding down my family niggas know what it is.

HHDX: Tell me why you call yourself Uncle Murda?
UM
: Ive always been Murda man, but I used to give a lot of little kids money and all that shit. Back in the days in the projects I used to give little kids five or ten dollars, little dollars and all that. They aunts, they big sisters, they moms and all that know so when they saw me they be like Uncle Murda and ask for a dollar. The name just stuck with a nigga.

HHDX: So where the Murda comes in at?
UM
: Oh [laughs], because a nigga was running around with that motherfuckin thing. Niggas was trying to take my moterfuckin life so I was defending myself.

HHDX: Well you know how it is in the hood you gotta hold your own.
UM
: Yeah, hell yeah.

HHDX: Uncle back to you being a dude thats respected in the streets how you feel about Studio Gangtas in the game right now?
UM
: I cant stand em man. I feel like if a nigga aint really a gangsta dont rap about being a gangsta. Like if you a school kid or you a school boy, rap about the school life and things that go on in school. If you a playboy rap about being a playboy or if you was the kid that got beat up all the time, rap about getting beat up - its a market for that shit. Rap about your life. Everything aint got to be about being a gangsta. Rap about a nine to five if you a working nigga. Rap about going to work everyday and that type of lifestyle. These niggas just be fronting and thats why niggas aint makin no good music and not selling records, because people see through that corny shit.

HHDX: A lot of cats say you speak real stuff so did you do what you said back in the day?
UM
: All day! Im definitely about my music and you can type up and get my motherfuckin rap sheet man. You can go and get my motherfuckin rap sheet and ask for 75th Precinct and they will tell you That boys a problem. Me and the police got into some altercations, so its nothing about my business. Aint no future in fronting. I damn sure aint frontin and I got a future.

HHDX: Okay so tell me about some of this stuff on that rap sheet?
UM
: On the rap sheet we got gun possession, attempted murder, attempted murder on a cop, we got a couple things on there. Its a lot of shooting going on man.

HHDX: Oh so Uncle Murda was popping off like that?
UM
: Yeah [laughs], Uncle Murda was getting it in ya heard, go check it out man.

HHDX: Im going to peep that rap shit, but tell me what made you the rider that you are?
UM
: Just coming up in my neighborhood man. It was just me and a bunch of childhood friends of mine. I just decided one day that we wanted to get some money and get fly. Everybody else around us was looking good and we wasnt looking too good. We was young like Fuck that, we gonna start looking good. We wasnt like the average little niggas that come under the older dudes hustling. We gathered whatever little money we had ourselves and started hustling on our own. When the older guys didnt really approve of that it caused a conflict, because we started getting too much money so we started getting it on. All we had was us. We aint had no older guys to go to, it was just us. It probably was about eight or nine of us so we had to be real tight with each other and depend on each other just to live. We wasnt gonna stop getting money and we decided Fuck that we gonna get this money and we gonna get it on with these niggas so thats where it really all started from man.

HHDX: Im pretty sure with being in the hood trying to get your money that you had a lot of cats after you?
UM
: Oh hell yeah. So we had a lot of older dudes envy of us, because we started getting money when we was about fifteen, sixteen. All them other older niggas they was already twenty-five, twenty-six, twenty-seven, they wasnt feeling us we was taking all they money. We was getting some bread man and they was gunning at us. What made us special was that these older niggas would come shooting at us and thinking that it would scare us and they was surprised that we came right back. Right after they came on our block shooting outside the projects we came right back. As soon as the police left we came right back over there. They knew like Damn, these little motherfuckers is serious man, and it was on right there it was a new era.

HHDX: Being from the hood do you think a gun is the key to safety?
UM
: Hell yeah only if you living that lifestyle. A gun is only necessary if you living that lifestyle hustling and doing what you do so hell yeah you get a gun. If you aint living that lifestyle you dont need no motherfuckin gun. The lifestyle I was living? Hell yeah I needed a gun to survive!

HHDX: I feel you on that Murda, because Im from the hood too in Philly but I dont do none of that!
UM
: Yeah, you dont need a gun just because you live in the hood. It depends on what you doing.

HHDX: No doubt, so I see Uncle Murda had some drama going on.
UM
: Oh hell yeah I still got drama going on.

HHDX: Well thats what happens G!
UM
: Hell yeah, I guess its a part of hip-hop with the lies and rumors, but its all good.

HHDX: Whats your beef with the cops right now talk about that?
UM
: I just dont like the cops man. I cant stand them, they done shot up a couple of my mans and all that. They shoot people and just get away with it. I just dont like how they go about things. They come in the neighborhoods and they just check you, harassing you, and doing what the fuck they want. I cant stand them motherfuckers man! Its like just because we look how we look, they got a right to come check us and feel like we criminals and Im just not with that shit. I cant stand it that shit really fucks with me man.

HHDX: How you feel when they say To Protect and Serve?
UM
: Shit not us - they here to destroy us. They trying to get the young generation before they even grow up to be eighteen. They trying to make sure these niggas got rap sheets, they locking niggas up when they thirteen, fourteen just to be in the system, just to fuck them up so they can never prosper to better themselves. They just be fucking niggas up! I dont feel like they here to protect and serve. They knocking down libraries in my community just to put up a P.O. building. There was a library in the projects for the young kids to do what they want to do and these motherfuckers knocked the library down and they got up a P.O. building. What type of example are you giving the kids with a P.O. building?

HHDX: Do you feel a lot of cops are dirty?
UM
: Hell yeah! A lot of cops are dirty its like nine out of every ten cops are dirty.

HHDX: Tell me why?
UM
: Because of the experiences Ive been through man. These motherfuckers used to just come through with they little hoodies on. You dont know who the fuck they is. You shooting, they just shooting back at you. These motherfuckers play dirty. They pull you over in the neighborhood sometimes and they dont even care as they have no reason to pull you over. They just wanna get you out your car and check to see if you got a gun and they let you go about your business. They be on some Its a lot going on in this neighborhood and we wanna see if you got weapons. They disrespect your rights and I cant get with that shit.

HHDX: You feel as though the cops discriminate against young blacks?
UM
: Hell yeah they do! That shit is a fact. This is a business for them. Its all a hustle to them, thats how they make their money. You got C.O.s, judges, lawyers, thats how they make they money so they gotta lock us up. They gotta have some money to pick off some targets. Its just like any other hustle. If you selling crack, you look for crackheads. Its just that they got a different business and they into the Lock you up business so they go Who we gonna lock up and put in your system to make money? Thats the Blacks and the Hispanics man.

HHDX: Uncle whats your whole take on snitching?
UM
: I cant stand it. I feel like if a nigga was in the street doing what he was doing and a nigga snitched on another nigga in the street to bail himself out of jail or make his situation better - Im really against that shit. I feel like if you cant kill that motherfucker in six months, or if that nigga cant die, you need to go get somebody in his family or something. Hit him where it hurts, because a nigga got to know No Snitchin, no talking to the police, especially if you living this lifestyle. I think that would even make more niggas not get in the game. Because if you not built for this shit and then you realize you not built, when you get caught the fuck up and then you wanna snitch and somebody in your family gets killed behind that shit, I think thats gonna make more motherfuckers be like You know what I aint with that gangsta shit Im going to school man. This shit aint no joke.

HHDX: But dont you think its kind of crazy if somebody did something and go take it out on a family member?
UM
: No, I dont think its kind of crazy, because motherfuckers need to stop doing that shit. These niggas is destroying motherfuckers man! And just because somebody got caught up and now you gonna snitch on one of your mans or the next man thats doing X, Y, and Z taking care of his family. Now his kids is fucked up behind that shit and everybody fucked up behind that shit, all because this motherfucker snitched. I feel like anything goes for a motherfucker that snitches. If you dont wanna be in that predicament dont be in the motherfuckin game. Your family is in jeopardy when you're in this game anyway, you might shoot a motherfucker and the motherfucker might be like Damn I cant get that nigga back so Im a go shoot his brother, shoot his cousin or something like that. If you living this lifestyle your family is in jeopardy anyway.

HHDX: But how would you feel if they were after your family member?
UM
: Shit... Ive been involved in situations like that with my little brothers and all that. I got situations where my grandmothers door been shot up in my neighborhood before. I knew what I was in, I know what goes on, I been around the shit. My grandmother got six big bullet holes in her motherfuckin door - I know what its like.

HHDX: Murda, like I said, I didnt do none of the stuff, but I know what its like to lose friends growing up. Do you feel some type of way that a lot of your boys are not alive?
UM
: I got one man that passed away that was with me and my crew. Hell yeah I feel bad that nigga died. That was my motherfuckin heart. It was another one of my homies that passed away he was a little older so R.I.P. to my man Lanell and my man Taheem. Those are my peoples and hell yeah I feel bad, but I cant do shit about that though. Whatever a nigga did behind them niggas dieing is what a nigga did, but shit thats the game. Sometimes all you can do is take care of a nigga family when you in the position to.

HHDX: Uncle you doing your thing in the streets and everything how is the music game going for your right now with Jay-Z?
UM
: Its feeling great. Jay put me in a position to take care of my family and to take over this rap shit. Im feeling good right now I got the Brooklyn record out with Jay-Z and Fabolous. That was a real good look for me. I got the Bullet, Bullet record on the streets right now killing it. A nigga is feeling good right now. The music is looking good. I got this crazy record thats about to come next and you know we on our way. A nigga might sell ten, thirty million records man.

HHDX: I know you feel confident with the sales, but you know sales are going down.
UM
: You said the sales are down right now?

HHDX: Yeah!
UM
: Anything is possible though. What the fuck, why not think big? You think big you get big, you see what Im saying.

HHDX: I feel you on that.
UM
: They feeling me like crazy across seas right now in the U.K., Canada, France and all that. They fuckin with me right now even Japan fuckin with me right now. Fuck that I got the east coast, the west coast, the south is fuckin with me - they fuckin with a nigga right now. Everybody is feeling that Fuck the Police shit man, anybody can relate to that. A nigga know whats real man, real recognizes real.

HHDX: Why you feel you going to take over the game?
UM
: Because Im really what the game's been missing. Right now its just a bunch of pop-corn shit going on. Everybody doing what they do, but aint nobody doing it how I do it. I just really feel like Im a bring the Gangsta Rap shit back like that N.W.A. shit. That real gangsta music. I got something for the ladies too you know, Ive fucked more bitches than niggas I shot, so I got some shit for the ladies. The ladies are gonna fuck with me, see how B.I.G. was smooth with the ladies I got that all day man.

HHDX: So Uncle is too hard for hip-hop?
UM
: Oh yeah, Uncle is too hard for hip-hop, but he got the ladies on his mind.
