Virginia rapper Skillz isn’t quite ready to let Uncle Murda off the hook after getting blasted with the “Why You Mad” diss song. The hip-hop veteran has hit up social media to share a special message from longtime friend and mentor Missy Elliott.
Skillz went to Instagram Monday (January 8) with some motivation words courtesy of Missy.
Earlier in the day, Skillz downplayed Murda’s hard-hitting diss record.
On Monday, Murda surprised fans by announcing and releasing his new battle record which name-dropped Missy Elliott.
Last week, Skillz came forward to defend blasting Uncle with his “Murda Gram” diss song.
“I don’t even rap no more, man. But, the level of disrespect, when he DM’d me, that was it. His DM happened like a week ago, no, like two weeks ago. He just DM’d me and he said you the PG version and I’m the R-rated version. Like, the screenshot of the song is the DM. He said that to me. And I just said back, ‘Who this?’ My thing is, it’s been plenty of cats that have tried to do the Rap-Ups but no one’s been this disrespectful. I’m like, bro, why you keep saying my name? Y’all have to understand the only people who hear an Uncle Murda ‘Rap Up’ is in New York or World Star. But it doesn’t get past Exit 7 on the Turnpike. There are still people asking me, ‘Who is Uncle Murda?’ I’m just like, bro, like, he funny, he’s a character but he ain’t built for bars. … There’s 30 rappers in Brooklyn more important than Uncle Murda. Ain’t no more saying my name on the records. Come on, fam.” (Hot 97)
