Ummm? Uncle Murda Changes His Name, Now It’s “U.M.” (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) In Hip Hop, Doggs have become Lions. Daddy’s have become Diddy’s. Even hyphens are not safe (right, Jay Z?). Brooklyn-bred gangsta rapper Uncle Murda is the latest in the name change family as he is now to be referred to as U.M.

In a video interview with Hot 97’s Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg, the artist formerly known as Uncle Murda revealed that his old moniker was holding him back from booking certain shows and acquiring certain deals.

Check out the full interview below to hear him discuss the late Chris Lighty’s advice on the name change, how U.M. dealt with his old name and more below:

        so u basically just used what I said and repeated it? Your the Aaron Hernandez of this huh>? u dummy!

  • MrNoName2K

    ok so first it was Uncle Murder, to Uncle M, then back Uncle Murda, and now UM..tha hells the logic behind that?

  • DesignatedH8R

    This is just like Peedi Craak changing to “Peedi Peedi” or Kokane changing his name to “Mr. Kane.” This shit ain’t gonna work. Either stay hardcore and underground or see “Tity Boi” if you want to know how to transform your name from offensive to marketable.

    • or Killa Mike

      • DesignatedH8R

        Killer Mike never changed his name. The mainstream is more likely to embrace something that can be like “Wow mom! This hummus is KILLER.” “The Killers!” are a bunch of Mormons. Mitt Romney’s favorite band. And you’ve had successful rappers like Ghostface Killah. But Murda is distinctly malicious illegal homicide. Murder is more likely to be offensive to families, especially if it’s spelled with an A, and radio stations are more reluctant to pick up the music.

      • agreed 100%…km did change his name then changed it back

      • DesignatedH8R
