Rap veteran Nas has reportedly likened his former Def Jam labelmate Uncle Murda to one-time music foe, the late and great Notorious B.I.G.
Uncle Murda revealed Nas' comparison of him to the hip-hop legend Thursday (April 18).
"the n*gga @Nas said i give him that Biggie feeling I'm really feeling myself rite now lets go Brooklyn #gmg #tuneheadz #epic," Murda tweeted April 18th. (Uncle Murda's Twitter)
A few months ago, Murda hit up SOHH and crowned himself in our Top 5 Dead or Alive rundown.
"I definitely have to say the Uncle Murda kid. U.M., the money kid, however you want to call it. I put myself in there because my story is real. It's not fabricated. I represent the environment that your favorite rappers come from and that struggle. I represent the Jay-Z's, the Biggie Smalls' and the Nas'. I represent that environment they come from and I'm still in the communities touching those environments and going through the bullsh*t. I detail this street sh*t so well and I put so much of my heart into it, how can I not put myself in there? And I scream "F*ck the police!" You haven't had a person go so hard on the police since N.W.A. and 2Pac. I still represent that era." (SOHH's Top 5 Dead or Alive)
He also talked to SOHH about getting co-signs from music executives like L.A Reid and the late Chris Lighty.
"People don't even realize with L.A. Reid, when I first signed to Def Jam, when Jay-Z had signed me to Def Jam, L.A. Reid was over there also," Murda told SOHH. "So he had to sign off on it. L.A. Reid was there. Like Sheek [Louch told y'all], L.A. Reid is into this hip-hop sh*t for real. Don't get that f*cked up, he's got love for this sh*t. When I was over there at Def Jam with L.A. Reid and Jay-Z, he had to co-sign me and everything. And this time, I hooked back up with him through Chris Lighty, God Bless him. I got the deal over there with Epic and Reid was like, 'Let's make this sh*t happen this time. For real. Let's take it to where it's got to go.' So L.A. Reid is very much into this sh*t." (SOHH)
