Roc-A-Fella rapper Uncle Murda was shot in the head on Tuesday (January 22, 2008) in New York City.
Uncle Murda sat down exclusively with AllHipHop.com and revealed details as to what happened and what his next move in the music industry will be.
The Brooklyn bred rapper revealed that he was shot in the head, as he stood with a friend outside of a parked car in New York.
While the rapper didn’t divulge specifics, he denied rumors that the shooting was the result of several high profile disputes with a number of rappers.
“This wasn’t no entertainment beef sh*t,” Uncle Murda told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. “This was some street sh*t.”
Uncle Murda, who narrowly escaped death, has been in several lyrical beefs with rappers like Nas, Mobb Deep and most infamously Papoose.
The rapper, born Leonard Gant, was treated at a local hospital and released.
He dismissed any reports that the shooting was connected to any of his rap rivalries.
“If anybody, I think it may have been the NYPD. But who it ever was that did it, they missed because I didn’t even know I was hit. One of my crew told me that my face was bleeding and took me to the hospital. They said I still have a bullet in my head and if I am sexually active it will fall out [laughs].”
The rapper claimed he was tending to his wounds without the help of medical assistance.
Although addressing the situation light heartedly, Uncle Murda also addressed the ongoing rivalry with Papoose and his plans for his album.
“That is old,” Uncle Murda said, “I don’t have any problems with that dude. Only thing I am focused on is my upcoming album on Roc-A-Fella/Violator. It is still real and happening so look out for that because it is going to be hot.”
