First Installement of Hood Tuesdays
Welcome friends to this, the first installment of Hood Tuesdays, and for the first one I wanted to touch on some old news first, but still some of my favorite hood news from late '08. Uncle Murda got shot and it was the best thing to happen to his career. Who is Uncle Murda you ask? Guess it wasn't that good. Thank you Daily News for keep it thorough as always. Link to the song he made right after is below. Link to the whole fucking album he made about this shit is below that, and remember. If its Tuesday, its hood.
After rumors circulated on the internet over the last few days, the New York Daily News has finally confirmed that Brooklyn rapper Uncle Murda was shot in the head on Tuesday night (Jan 22) while sitting in a parked car. The 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Leonard Grant, was grazed by a bullet around 10:30 p.m. during a shooting on Linden Blvd. in East New York. Sources told the Daily News that Murda was not seriously injured.
Reports have also surfaced claiming that Murda called Wendy Williams’ show on NY radio station WBLS following the shooting to announce that he was recovering nicely, using “Hennessey and Newports” to ease his pain. After a pair of successful mixtapes with DJ Green Lantern, the rapper signed to Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam in 2007, where he plans to release his official debut.
Hard To Kill Song
So I just re-listened to the Hard To Kill mixtape. Its fucking wack. Instead enjoy a Lox mixtape from around the same time, more contemporary hoodness coming next Tuesday.
