BIRTHPLACE: HARLEM, NEW YORK.
ROLE: BATTLE RAP / STREET / COMMERCIAL CROSSOVER.
Murda Mook made his name globally as one of the highest regarded battle rappers of all time. After this he then got signed to legendary record label Ruff Ryders, the home of DMX, Swizz Beatz, Eve, Jadakiss etc.
Although he will very rarely battle (like the last battle which got Busta Rhymes and Diddy signalling him as a champion) his focus is to make music.
We linked up with him and Nick Donnelly directed the music video Love Thru The Speakers, parts of this were shot in the legendary Ruff Ryders studio in Yonkers, just yards from where DMX and Jay-Z used to hang out and freestyle.
