Biography

Leonard Grant (born July 25, 1980), better known by his stage name, Uncle Murda, is an American rapper from East New York, Brooklyn, NY.

Music career

In 2007 his manager and DJ Green Lantern introduced Uncle Murda's music to Jay-Z. The Brooklyn born rapper/CEO signed Uncle Murda to Roc-A-Fella Records soon after. They started to promote him immediately by placing him on a track with popular label-mates Fabolous and Jay-Z for the song "Brooklyn" (Featured on From Nothin' to Somethin' album) and everything seemed to be going well for the rapper. However in late 2008 rumors that Uncle Murda left Def Jam came about. In an interview with DJ Vlad, Uncle Murda confirmed the rumors that he has split from Def Jam and Roc-A-Fella Records claiming everything went downhill since Jay-Z's departure.

On January 22, 2008, Uncle Murda was shot in the head while in a parked car on Linden Blvd in East New York but was not seriously hurt. Ironically, the shooting happened after the rapper released his mixtape entitled "Respect the Shooter". He discharged himself from the hospital less than 24 hours after he was admitted, with the bullet still embedded in his skull. Uncle Murda called the nationally syndicated Wendy Williams Experience radio show after the shooting and told her he was using "Hennessey and Newports to cope with the pain". He was allegedly shot by Nadith Gunasekera. However, no charges were filed, as Uncle Murda refused to cooperate with investigators, blaming the police for the shooting.

Controversy

Papoose

After releasing diss songs back and forth the two rappers with their managers decided to end the conflict. On May 9, 2008, Papoose's DJ, DJ Kay Slay, announced that the two rappers had ended the feud on his radio show. Soon after, the two rappers appeared on the same song together for the remix of "Don't Take It There" also featuring Junior Reid, Tony Yayo, Avalanche The Architect, Jim Jones, Sheek Louch and DJ Kay Slay and have collaborated since then.
