Taxstone Responds To Uncle Murda: He's An Unsuccessful Rapper

The former podcast host speaks from behind bars.

(AllHipHop News) It looks like Skillz is not the only person that may have an issue with Uncle Murda. The beef over their respective year-in-review records may be seen as super-trivial compared to recent comments made by Taxstone.

The incarcerated podcaster did an interview with So Shameless. He was asked about Uncle Murda's "Rap Up 2017" which included the lyrics: "Taxstone got locked up and pleaded guilty. 'Why you ain’t help him?' I ain’t come with that n-gga. We ain’t cool like that, but it’s free Tax, n-gga."

Those bars were referring to some people questioning why Murda didn't do more to help Tax during the violent incident that took place inside Irving Plaza in 2016. Gunfire rang out in the club that night which led to Tax pleading guilty to federal gun charges, Troy Ave and others being injured, and bodyguard Ronald "Banga" McPhatter losing his life.

Taxstone told Tahoe of So Shameless:

I actually don't know what Uncle Murda's talking about. 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 [100] 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.

He later added:

Uncle Murda's an unsuccessful rapper. 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.
