[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Nitty Scott grounded her "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" anthem, New York rapper Uncle Murda unloads on his personal "My Moment" freestyle.]
For this record, I really wanted to give the people a little piece of my life, my history and what I've been going through and what's been going on with me.
I actually wrote the song out here [in New York] but I had ran into DJ Drama in Atlanta and told him how much I was feeling the record and I told him I did that sh*t over. I went up to him like, "Yo, Dram, I'm loving your record. Oh yeah, by the way, I bodied that sh*t also." That's it.
Chris Lighty was my manager for like six, seven years, so he helped me so much with everything that I was doing with this music thing and I also lost my moms when I was a young kid so that's why I put a little bit of that in there.
I talk about the struggle of my mom passing away and my little brothers having to make certain things happen and just the whole [personal life], one of my friends that I was real close to got killed. Working with Chris Lighty and him getting me my deal with Jay-Z at first and us keeping on grinding and he actually got me the situation I've got with L.A. Reid over at Epic right now, and then him passing away. I just wanted to touch up on a few topics.
I just felt like I had to touch on some personal things going on in my life on that record.
