Onetime Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam rapper Tru Life has turned himself into authorities. Last night, the Lower East Side artist went to police after being sought for questioning on murder charges.

The murder, which happened last week, left an 18 year-old dead, and another man wounded. Initial reports put Tru Life's brother in connection with the stabbing-murder. The incident was believed to be a retaliation for a non-fatal shooting of Tru Life associate Michael Slater. The stabbings were reported to the face and chest of the victims - Michael Black, and the un-named deceased.

Tru Life, a one-time protege of Jay-Z, is most known for his musical and physical feud with The Diplomats, most notably Cam'ron and Jim Jones [click to read], which began over disputes of Blood gang affiliation.
