Welcome to the first edition of “From The Vault” Fridays on Defjam.com! Every Friday we’ll take a trip in to our illustrious Def Jam vault and highlight something special from the Def Jam past and feature it on our site. This week we bring you the “Murdergram Freestyle” off one of the classic DJ Clue mixtapes from the 90’s.
Now before Irv Gotti presented the supergroup/record label which we all know today as Murda Inc., “Murder Inc.” was initially slated to be a super Rap trio consisting of Hip Hop Heavyweights Jay-Z, DMX and Ja Rule but the three alpha males only recorded a handful of songs and just couldn’t get it together.
Luckily for us, we at least got a peak in to what would have been the super rap trio “Murder Inc.” on “Murdergram Freestyle” via DJ Clue’s mixtape freestyle, as well as a handful of other classic tracks from the three which I’m sure we’ll highlight on “From The Vault” features to come.
