  • Murder Inc. Records' Resurrection

    "It's Murdaaaaa!"  Murder Inc., the record label founded by Irv Gotti, will be relaunching in the near future.

    On May 10th, the OG music executive took to Instagram to make the historic announcement that he will indeed resurrect the label, and plans on adding new artists to its roster. 

    “Oh and by the way!! I’m about to RE LAUNCH MURDER INC RECORDS!! I got some new artist. New music. Same fucking MOVEMENT! The Worlds Most Talented Record Label. Everyone had a lot of fun. While I had to re group from the Feds coming after me. Had to plot and plan and fall back while I watched everyone else eat. I watched gracefully. I applauded and congratulated everyone who deserved it. Never one bone of hate in my body. I love to see my niggas win and eat. BUT ITS MY TURN NOW!! My Money is right. And I’m back!! Major Announcements Coming Soon. Who Murder Inc will be partnered with. And what Artist I am fucking with!!” he wrote.

    For those who are unaware, the label went under after a brutal beef between Ja Rule and 50 Cent.  Furthermore, Irv's federal indictment on money laundering charges fueled the imprint's demise in 2003. Luckily, in November 2015 Gotti was acquitted of all charges.

    Not only is Irv bringing back his, once scorching, music label, he is currently cooking up a scripted anthology show with BET called TALES, that will tell the stories of classic hip hop songs.  According to Billboard, the episodic is slated to broadcast during the second or third quarter of 2017.
