Uncle Murda was a guest on Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club and touched base on a wide variety of topics. The East New York native discussed wanting to leave Epic, breaking bread with pawnshops, turning down VH1′s Love & Hip-Hop, and much more. The Brooklyn born representer also praised the current state of New York hip-hop, and believes the city is in a better place. “I feel like we almost there, I feel like we getting there,” said UM in response to a question raised regarding the NYC rap scene. He continued, “I don’t want to say we all the way back yet, but we getting there.”
Staying true to the NYC theme, Uncle Murda also described his relationships with older legends such as: Jay Z, Nas, and the Ruff Ryders and explained his experience with being in the industry for so long can help teach younger rappers the game. Two local rising stars that Murda is a fan of are Troy Ave and Chinx. “There’s a lot of dudes that are putting out good music,” he said. “I like what Troy Ave is doing, I like what Chinx is doing.” “I like what’s going on, we almost in a good space. We not all the way there yet, but we coming.”
