Uncle Murda Splits With Def Jam

In an interview with DJ Vlad, Brooklyn rapper Uncle Murda revealed that he is no longer on Def Jam Recordings.

Murda signed with the label under Jay- Z’s “Carter administration in 2007, but since Hov’s departure he said everything went sour. “I’m no longer with Def Jam,” he said. “Things didn’t work out over there once Jay-Z left it was like you know, they didn’t really know what to do with Uncle Murda after that.” [Watch Below]

The gangsta rapper, who made headlines in January of 2008 after he was the victim of a gunshot wound to the head, says that while he is no longer on Def Jam , he is still with his mentor DJ Green Lantern and Violator Management. “We were just with [Violator big] Chris Lighty in Miami for the new year,” he added in good spirits. “I was at my first P. Diddy party.”

An optimistic Murda parted by saying he just dropped the new mixtape Back on my Bullshit and he’s ready to sign another deal. “I’m still relevant,” he declared. “I’m still that nigga. And we gonna get a new situation.” – Elan Mancini

        Your shit is more like the 30 Day Faggot Wave. Shit is wack son. Go back to lab and work on your flow some more. Nigga sound like a 21 year old Tickle Me Elmo. Fuck outta here.

        And Im from the south, so dont even start that “up norff hater” bullshit.

        • $ykotic

          Brah I went 2 ure site. I should’ve listened 2 JERZEY!

          No offense but do something else. Biting FREEWAY is not a good look.

          And trust me I AM NO HATER but u yungins SOUND THE SAME.

          And stop spamming blog sites. U can’t cake up offa myspace. It’s been a proven fact.

        • $ykotic

          not 4 nothing but do “uncle” got a triple fat goose on? That’s retro!

        • FlapJack

          hahahaha! Poor guy! I don’t think xxlmag people are your target audience Gullee..

          As far as murda, that mixtape is the hardest shit out.
          I had it in my ipod 2 weeks ago at the airport, and I swear I was about to start smacking momofuckas that annoyed me.

        • Clever

          Mr. perm, go back to this line: ” Paper or Plastic?” Thats da realest line you probably ever spit. LOL!

  • macdatruest

    any nigga tryna get in a situation is a failure. Thats like you already at the court, suited up and all that but nobody is picking you up. Free Agent. And thats what happen to niggas who try to get in the game any way they can. End up in the game, fucked up situation but name already out there-back out the game, then expect people to see themas new when they get back in. I agree with enlightened, it’s a wrap. Why would anybody sign to the 2nd String-A-Fella? Thats the Roc with Tru Life and Foxy Brown (and you Uncle Murda) Plus nigga yo name…..Uncle, Murder. How appealing is that? I kinda feel stupid asking a nigga if he heard that “Uncle Murder” nigga might laugh at me

  • giantstepp

    LMAO @ Enlightened!

    I totally agree. To get another situation means you had to have a situation in hte first place. Lets be honest, did he ever really have a situation? It’s a rap Uncle Murder.

  • DV8

    congrats you are now an independant artist. No label is going to sign anybody with a name like Uncle Murder. Thats why your name never caught wind outside of New York.

  • http://xxl All Dae

    This jackass is in the same boat as Tru Life. Trying to front like yr wanted by labels when yr ass is nowhere to be found on a label roster or releasing albums. Mixtapes don’t count cause everyone on My Space, Facebook and every corner of N.Y. has a mixtape so yr not doing anything unique.

    Enlightened is right.

    But dare I gore the sacred cow ? How bad a record exec is jay-z (no Hov), this motherfucker got more MC’s on hold than Dre and aftermath.

    I understand and use some slag, but why all these late 20′s early 30′s niggaz still using the same phrases

    “Situation”, “Good Look”, “Go in”.. motherfucker use your brain and stop regurgitating the same words.

    And the usual from a DROPPED artist

    “they didn’t really know what to do with me”

    Yes they did,. They dropped your ass. Change your name to Uncle Mase and maybe diddy will put a shiny suite on you and put you out

  • Hate Hate and more Hate

    WTF is a Uncle Murda? He does look Tony Yayo-ish (read: old as shit) to be some bodies uncle, so I get that part. But the murder part I don’t get. Is it because somebody with no aim tried to murder him? Or is this just another case of rappers talking about shit they don’t do? If you say he murdered his career because he’s wack as shit, then I might agree with you. But his name still sucks monkey balls.

    I predict that after months of not landing in “a new situation”, we will be hearing diss records from this clown towards Gay-Z.

    • dusty boy

      Awe shit, still nigga?!!! Cock Sucka ass lame!!! 1st you talkin’ ’bout…

      Janet Jackson’s weak

      Monkey Balls

      Refers to JAY-Z as GAY-Z

      Look homie, oh my bad HOMO, shoot STRAIGHT with yourself (no point intended) look half this country thinks its coo to be gay so be gay just stop tryin’ to hide the fact that YOU indeed ARE GAY!!

      That would explain your anger and all your HATE, HATE, and more HATE!!!

      I’d be mad too if I wasn’t able to be who I really wanna be.

      Have a NICE DAY Cocka Sucka!!!

    Truth be told, I have never heard of this guy before… if he was signed to Def Jam..he must have been good.

  • Clever

    Fuck ah Label. Labels been using bootlegging to fuck over a Artist for years, its call ( THE ARTIST WON’T SEE MONEY) LOL! More the artist won’t see, more the artist owes me, get it? These Dum ass Artist keep running and Shuffling fa these Labels. I’m all about making music. The Money comes with success, and being real to yourself first. Uncle Murder what a name, Every comment I’ve read is so true. Its a Wrap!

    • macdatruest

      Real Talk. I never thought about that- a label can leak they own artist’s shit to keep slavin’ they ass. Or you can be your own boss and leak or release your own shit. Unless you still like gettin shitted on contractually like Cold Crush

      • Clever

        Hell yeah!, I notice they always trying to get unsigned artist to come to conferences, really what they do is listen to your material. Get their writers to listen rearrange your material ( so they won’t face a lawsuit) or copyright Infrigment. They stay snaking, who needs a label, I got 100 people to listen to my music, I’m happy. better to own your shit ,and move when you want too, than to be pushed like a slave, or pimped like ah hoe. Alot of Artist sign other Artist and, never release them, So they won’t take their shine. So they sign them , lead them on in to thinking they got they back, when they know that nica nicer than them so, they just shelf him. then when his buzz gone, drop’em from da label. With out a pot to piss in. That’s why I say fuck da Industry with no vasealine. Majority of them Nica’s is why Hip-Hop is in da State its in, its going back to the Streets. Push your Own shit, If you Hot , You Hot! If your Not , Your not. Simple

        • macdatruest

          “Push your Own shit, If you Hot , You Hot! If your Not , Your not. Simple”

          “Push your Own shit, If you Hot , You Hot! If your Not , Your not. Simple”

          I cosign, but there’s only one problem. The PEOPLE decide whats hot. And by the looks of the fans today, they DONT whats hot. Believe it or not, I’ve found niggas who said that Big L was wack!!

          Would you say Plies is hot? To me, he sucks ass. But this nigga had a whole movement in FLA and a mass following. I used to own a club, and booked shows for this nigga off his MIXTAPES. I think he’s trash on a hot summer day, but people love this dude for some reason. I know niggas who would destroy him, but they dont get booked for shows.

          Unfortunately, being a good rhymer isnt enough nowadays. These youngins also want “real shit” and “swag”. Ugh.

        • CLever

          These youngins are so nieve. BigL is so ill! Yep when they say he is wack, they have no sense of History.

  • $ykotic

    Dudes still falling for the same tricks in the industry that OG”S warned ya’ll about the last 10 yrs! How many cats been signed to never drop? C’mon. I’m starting to think dudes like the abuse. Am I’m from BK. Gravy was the next BIG thing b4 Papoose and look how he had to get on! Acting! HAH!

    Murda sound real sour. U didn’t think u were that dude did ya?

    ANYONE CAN GET ON(WITH THE RIGHT CONNECTS). STAYING THERE IS ANOTHER STORY.

    Koch might help homie. Downtown 212. Go get an application.

    “Yes they did,. They dropped your ass. Change your name to Uncle Mase and maybe diddy will put a shiny suite on you and put you out”

    classic.

    uncle murder is an ok rapper. on the few joints that i heard him he was solid but proved he was not ready for the big leagues by getting murked by fab and countless others.

    the recent classic green latern freestyle session with free, beans, styles p was good. but of course, he was fourth place again.

    it would be cool if he got the same deal that tru life got in his walking papers (300k).
