Leonard Grant, better known by his stage name, Uncle Murda, is an
American rapper from the Pink Houses section of East New York.
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 while in a parked car
on Linden Blvd in East New York but was not seriously hurt.
In February 2011, it was revealed that he would take part in a new
Hiphop/Pro Wrestling collaboration, the Urban Wrestling Federation
with taping of the first bout "First Blood" taking place
in June 2011.
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, Jim Jones, and Sheek Louch.
