Your new mixtape is titled Back on my Bullshit…
(interrupts) Yeah! Headshots for everybody!
My question is when did you ever get off your bullshit?
(laughs) Never! You know, I just liked the title. (laughs) I definitely wasn’t! I’m just letting the streets know I’m back on it. I hadn’t put out a mixtape in a little minute so I’m just letting them know that I’m back.
One of the big issues you addressed throughout the mixtape was that you were off Def Jam. What happened there?
Nothing. It’s just like niggas felt like the situation wasn’t working out in my favor.
Why do you think it wasn’t working out?
Because, you know, they never really got behind any of my records or behind the movement. They just felt like that wasn’t the right situation for me.
It seemed like Jay was helping you when he was there.
Yeah. You know, when Jay-Z left, as far as my situation, it was kind of all fucked up. That happened once Jay-Z left.
Was your style too violent and street for the Def Jam of 2008?
No, not at all. I think I just didn’t get really paid no attention to once Jay left. I guess there was nobody there to take care of my project or get into Uncle Murder’s world. I think that’s what it was but I definitely got that shit.
Have you stayed in touch with Jay since he left Def Jam?
We’re in touch but we’re definitely grinding. We never stopped grinding. Everything’s cool with Jay-Z. There’s no problems with Jay-Z.
You’ve been doing some songs with Tony Yayo lately. What are the chances of you going to G-Unit?
(laughs) We had a big sit-down with 50 and all that not too long ago, probably like three weeks ago. We had a lot of talks. There’s rumors that it’s official that I signed with G-Unit but I didn’t get that money yet. We was talking. So all the labels that’s still interested, holla. The offers are still coming.
Would you sign to G-Unit?
If the money was right, shit! You know, if that money truck is backing up it’s whatever! You already know. I fucks with Yayo too. If the money was right I would definitely be screaming G-G-G-G-G-G-G, ya heard! (laughs)
Would G-Unit Records be a good fit for you considering your style and fanbase?
I definitely think it would be a good look. Shit, whoever gives me the money, I’ll make it a good look. But definitely G-Unit’s style and the way I come at things, I definitely think it would be a good thing.
You and Tony Yayo have good chemistry when you work together. What’s it like working with him?
Yayo’s a cool nigga! He’s real down to earth. We kicked it and if we say we’re going to do it it’s going to get done. It’s no bullshit or fronting. It’s real shit.
On Back on my Bullshit you had some conscious songs like “A Good Man is Gone” and you even mentioned that you were trying to show a more conscious side of Uncle Murder. Do you think fans know that side of you exists?
Oh yeah! That’s why I put it out there in the music. I just have to clear it up sometimes and let it be known. That’s why I did a song like “A Good Man is Gone.” If they didn’t know now they know.
After looking at songs like “Bullet Bullet” and “Shooters For Hire,” can you have a conscious side?
Definitely! That’s real shit. That’s reality shit! You do have crackheads in the ‘hood where if you give them a hit they will shoot somebody in the fucking head for you. There’s just certain things that can be done. You got “Shooters for Hire” and “Bullet Bullet” but then you have “A Good Man is Gone” where niggas are trying to go to school and they might get caught up in some things that they had nothing to do with. I can talk about that because I’m in the ‘hood. I can cover all that shit because I’m in the ‘hood. I can talk about certain positive things and how the police is on the bullshit. I’m not talking about shooting the police all the time. I’m talking about how they shoot us and how they're harassing niggas for nothing or how they’re ripping down the libraries in my ‘hood and turning it into a fucking PO building. I can definitely talk about certain shit.
“He Asked for It” featured an old Jay-Z verse where fans thought he was dissing Fat Joe and DJ Khaled. How did that song come together?
Shit, I don’t know. I’m so happy for the guy that put that song together though. I just got a call from my man Kay Slay and he asked me if I was ready to shut the city down and I said, “What you talking about, Slay?” He said, “Just tune in, nigga.” And from there it was on. (laughs) That’s how that came about, man.
So you and Slay are cool again.
Yeah. We’re cool again. That’s my boy. We’re straight stuntin’. And I’m in the new Straight Stuntin’ that’s coming out.
Did Kay Slay and Green Lantern squashing their beef help you get back on the same page with Slay?
It’s just everybody got on the page like that shit ain’t about nothing. We all felt like the big picture was to get money and to keep all this shit tight.
You and Papoose had been going back and forth and recently recorded the “Don't Take It There (Remix)” together. What was that like?
There’s no problems with Papoose. That was good. That’s a remix to Kay Slay’s single.
You have a song on your new mixtape “Come Here Baby” where you talk about your girls. I would imagine you would attract a special breed of females.
(laughs) I attract all kinds of females whether they’re in the industry or whether they’re still in the ‘hood. I attract all the ladies though, black, white, Puerto Rican, it doesn’t matter. They all fuck with me.
They’re not scared of you?
I have some movie stars too. Just know that I’m getting my weight up because I’m getting into the movie thing too. They don’t get scared when they hear that’s Murder. They like the bad guy and they want to know what the bad guy is about. They want me. They want a nigga to fuck the shit out of them. They just might not want everybody to know that. They might have the lame for the pictures and the good looks but behind closed doors they just want some good dick. They want a nigga to fuck the shit out of them.
So you don’t get to meet the parents?
Yeah. They might not take me home to meet the parents! (laughs)
What have you and Green Lantern been working on lately?
We’ve just been cooking up some special things. You know Green be running around OT so much that we call him Out of Town Green because he’s always out of town or overseas getting some out of town money but he’s about to come post up after the holidays and all of that. We’re about to cook up some things and we got a lot of part two’s that we’re about to put out of the shit we did.
Is the fact that Green is so busy the reason why you hosted Back on my Bullshit?
Nah. I just felt like I wanted to do that because I felt like I could do it. You know, really, I wanted everybody to be able to get the music and take certain shit without the DJs talking over the music or they’re mad because this DJ got it first. I just wanted everybody to get the music and you can take it and put it on your tape and just hear the music and enjoy it.
What’s been going on with GMG today?
It’s a grind. Everybody is just putting in their work. Our guys are getting their weight up and doing a bunch of songs. People is working. Big Bo has been out of town but he’s in the studio and he’s working too. I.C., he had a little case out there in Carolina. You know, we’re still in the streets. He got caught up but he’s still working. He’s beating up the South heavy and opening up for Lil’ Boosie. He’s doing what he does. We’re working. We’re just waiting for the big situation and then we’re going to do it right. And we got the Manhood family too with Razah and some other people. My boy Tito is there, my boy Lucky Don. We’re strong. We’re deep. We got a whole team.
Since leaving the Roc are you still in touch with artists like Memphis Bleek and Tru Life?
Yeah. I might see Bleek tonight. I still talk to dudes and I still fuck around with niggas.
Eskay made a joke that you should endorse John McCain to sabotage his campaign. Would you ever endorse John McCain in the future?
(laughs) No! They’re trying to make it look like I’m running with the cracker because his name rhymes with cocaine, probably.
If his name was John Cocaine would you have endorsed him?
(laughs) It depends if he was going to give it to me for a better number than what I’m getting it for now! (laughs) Other than that we’re talking about Barack! (laughs)
When are we going to get an official Uncle Murder album?
Shit, you know, there’s so much politics with this motherfucking game. As soon as we get the right situation. It don’t even be about the money. It’s about somebody believing in the project and seeing it and believing in the vision because I’m a movie. This shit ain’t just a bunch of punchlines. This shit is a movie right here. Once we get in a situation that everybody can see it will be on. I don’t really know when but it’s all about the politics, man. Hopefully it will be soon.
Were you able to keep the music you recorded at Def Jam?
We got all our music. It wasn’t no nothing. They ain’t get to keep none of that shit. We got to keep all of our music. They know they ain’t do shit for us so they could at least let us leave with all our shit.
When are we going to hear you killing cops on Auto Tune?
Oh, you’re never going to hear that sthi.
I’m definitely not with that shit.
When will Auto Tune be retired for good?
I don’t know, man. Some guys are making some all right music to it, I guess. The people are going to get tired of it and probably in another year it’ll be tired. I guess it’s still new to certain people and they’re making good melodies with it right now so the shit has been good right now. I think it’s probably got another year or two and that shit is out of here.
What’s the trend you’re going to start?
I’m just going to keep bringing what I bring and I’m going to keep it entertaining and teach motherfuckers to tasty away from the police and expose them. I’m just trying to stay me and stay entertaining. Keep poking nigga’s baby mama’s I got beef with and stop everybody from dancing to this dumb shit and getting everybody back bopping to this gangster shit.
Was your “A Millie” freestyle supposed to be a diss to Fabolous?
No, that wasn’t no Fabolous diss, man. Me and Fab ain't got no problems. Shout out to everybody over there. I was just with Paul Cain on his birthday up in the club and all that. We ain’t got no beef. That was just for something to talk about. I like them talking! (laughs)
Oh, and fuck the police!
