Uncle Murda is in the middle of a rap beef with Skillz over his end of the year wrap up, and others are taking shots at him too.
During an interview from prison with So Shameless, Taxstone talked about Murda’s song “Rap Up 2017” and was asked about this particular line:
“Taxstone got locked up and pleaded guilty / Why you ain’t help him? / I ain’t come with that nigga. We ain’t cool like that / But it’s free Tax, nigga,” rhymed Uncle Murda.
Murda was referring to the incident that took place at Irving Plaza between Tax and Troy Ave that landed the former podcaster in jail. Last year Tax was indicted on murder charges and he also pleaded guilty to gun charges.
“I actually don’t know what Uncle Murda’s talking about,” said Tax. “I’ve never had that discussion with him. I was definitely cool with Uncle Murda. I was in the studio with these dudes night after night, weeks straight. I think where our relationship strained at was when he allowed Game and Wack  to shoot a video in Pink Houses in Bed-Stuy. And Wack was always insinuating how his people got Biggie killed, and I thought it was an insult to have him shoot a video in Brooklyn. So I called Uncle Murda and a couple of other guys out about it. I felt like it was wrong to allow them to do that. I think that’s where our relationship got strained.”
Tax also accused Murda of stealing Skillz’s concept.
“Uncle Murda’s an unsuccessful rapper,” he stated. “This is his only time to shine. The kind of relevancy he has is when he drops these yearly rap-ups, which he stole from Mad Skillz. He’s a good rapper, but his best songs have been stolen… He’s not really good. He’s an artist that’s doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. He’s still in the same position that a new artist would be in, so he has to drop these records each year for relevancy and talk about people in disrespectful manners. It’s funny. I always liked them. I’m not offended by anything he might have said, but I’m only offended by anything that might not be true because I never had that discussion with this guy, so I don’t know what he’s talking about.”
