Uncle Murda

Known for tracks such as "Bullet Bullet," "Right Now," and his annual "Rap Up" installments, Leonard Grant is a gruff and plainspoken rapper who represents Brooklyn's East New York neighborhood as Uncle Murda. Active since the tail end of the '90s and a long-term DJ Green Lantern associate, Grant has released numerous mixtapes since the early 2000s. His exposure was increased by a 2007 deal with Def Jam, though he and the label split -- following the departure of Jay-Z -- before any studio recordings reached the public. Primarily an independent artist, Grant later had one of his commercial mixtapes, The First 48 (2013), issued through an arrangement with major-label Epic via Violator. In 2016, the year he and Maino released a collaborative tape titled Yellow Tape: King Kong & Godzilla, he signed to 50 Cent's G Unit label. "Thot" and "Statute of Limitations," the latter of which featured 50, were issued the following year in anticipation of the proper studio album The Lenny Grant Story. ~ Andy Kellman
