Uncle Murda Grazed By Bullet In Brooklyn Shooting

After rumors circulated on the internet over the last few days, the New York Daily News has finally confirmed that Brooklyn rapper Uncle Murda was shot in the head on Tuesday night (Jan 22) while sitting in a parked car. The 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Leonard Grant, was grazed by a bullet around 10:30 p.m. during a shooting on Linden Blvd. in East New York. Sources told the Daily News that Murda was not seriously injured.

Reports have also surfaced claiming that Murda called Wendy Williams’ show on NY radio station WBLS following the shooting to announce that he was recovering nicely, using “Hennessey and Newports” to ease his pain. After a pair of successful mixtapes with DJ Green Lantern, the rapper signed to Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam in 2007, where he plans to release his official debut.
