Uncle Murda Changes His Rap Name to ‘Uncle M’
Rapper Uncle Murda is trading in his current rap name for the more toned down version: Uncle M. The Brooklyn native stated that his new rap name will help in broadening his musical persona null of the preconceived notions that come with the name murder.
"It's just about getting me everywhere," he said in an interview. "That's what we're focusing on right now. I'll stay in hardcore music but you got to understand Uncle Murda, probably the murder part, has been the target [for] certain spots I need to get into. Or it'll scare the money away for certain things. When you hear Uncle Murda that's me, I already stamped that but we're trying to get some money. The concert and music is going to definitely be the same. It might get a little harder but we're [going to] definitely talk to [the] ladies too."
After explaining the motivation behind the name change Murda's next comments seemed a bit awkward. "Everything ain't about murder when it comes to me. I'm not shooting or killing 24/7, that's not going down everyday," he said. "I love the ladies. I like to go in the club and hear some good music, drink a little champagne....puff on whatever's getting puffed on and enjoy what's going on."
Murda also talked about his upcoming album. "I just [want to] make it [my album] so thick....the picture I'm painting because it's a movie, my album is [going to] be [like a] motion picture. I haven't really worked with everybody that I probably wanted to work with," he said. "As far as my album, it [has to] make sense. It has to fit into what I'm doing, so if there's a particular artist out there [and] I feel he fits this certain type of song then I might go with this because my album is really about my life. People in the streets can relate to the stuff that I do so it has to fit. I don't want to get somebody just because of his name or this is a big artist."
Although no date has released for his forthcoming album, his mixtape 'Summer Time Shootouts' is available now.
