Review: Murphy Lee – Murphy’s Law

Murphy Lee has something to offer as he has bars and concepts on his 2003 album Murphy’s Law. He is not just another rapper. Murphy Lee is sick with his rhymes. Words he uses match with those lyrics of his unlike other rappers. He makes his words rhyme in his lyrics. Murphy Lee is the shit. As usual, he never fails to disappoint his dedicated fans regardless of age. Murphy Lee did his thing yet as he is sick with his rhymes. People need to open their ears and broaden their horizons to support talent.

For those who don’t remember or don’t know, he is a rapper from the famous St. Louis rap group collective The Lunatics who rose to fame in the early 2000’s. Murphy Lee represents St. Louis, Missouri (the STL). Murphy Lee is most known for his success in the rap group the St. Lunatics alongside Nelly. He’s still signed to Universal Records through the St. Lunatics group deal but signed himself to his own record company

Wat Da Hook Gon Be was another lead single which caught a short but moderate buzz on radio stations across the United States in 2003 as it was played nearly everywhere. The song featured catchy hooks and catchy beats. The catchy beats were produced by Atlanta producer Jermaine Dupri. Of course anything produced by Jermaine Dupri is surely going to be a hit. His banging beats are what’s needed to grab people’s attention.

Murphy Lee proves to us what goes up, must come down in the first verse as he calls out the player haters in lyrical form. Player haters are people who hate or just envious of another person’s success. It be them same old clowns that are player haters. Haters are only pretending they’re proud. They are constantly fronting until they get confronted. If you don’t like whats going on, go listen to another song.

Murphy Lee keeps it St. Louis like Blues and Larry Hughes. He paid his dues. He’s not taking any shorts or losses. Murphy Lee don’t need no fucking hook on this beat. All he needs is the track in the background.

In Verse 2, Murphy Lee raps about how he got his first car when he turned 16. Verse 2 also explains how he basically came from nothing to something.

He only drove his car to his home or outta town like limousines. Plus he was broke at the time. So he did what we had to do on Nelly’s Country Grammar album to sell. The sun will come out tomorrow and he will never have to borrow anything as he has a recording contract with a major label. Murphy Lee stays original by sticking to his own melodies and lyrics. That’s how it is.

People are always saying, “Man it must be nice”. Not a simple “How’s life?”. Understand the money’s good but Murphy Lee is still from the hood. Expect a lot from him and you might get kicked. Murphy hints that he knows killers that will murder you and put you in a grave and thugs that will stomp you out.

You can catch Murphy Lee on your local radio station or in the studio doing vocals derrty style. Let the girls do him while you do you.

Murphy Lee gets cool with it on the song Cool Wit It. The song features Derrty Entertainment label mate Kyjaun. Ali of Ali & Gipp is featured as well. The cool saxophone solo at the end makes this song worth listening to.

Kyjuan is a laid back and humble person who is cool wit it. He is kind of hungry. He asks to be given a salad and soup. No need for extra rolls with it. Sue is the waitress who comes from behind the counter. She got a fat ass. Kyjuan went to school with her. She was the type that said,”I wouldn’t know what to do wit it” He got her phone number. She is not his type though. Kyjuan let Pooh have her. To put it simply, he let the crew hit it. Murphy Lee makes a lotta dough and pays a lotta dues. So you know he has the juice. He was cool wit it.

Nelly woke up at 9:30. He said, “Damn. It’s kinda early but I’m cool wit it.” He had received a message on his cellphone. Turns out it was this chick he had sex with. She used to be the cheerleader type. A lot of niggas tried but they didn’t get it. Or maybe they had the game they just didn’t spit it. They won’t admit anything about trying to hook up with her as those same niggas carry too much pride. A lot of niggas talkin’ shit but Nelly’s cool wit it.

Murphy Lee got his mama a new house and she cool wit it. His baby sister got a car as she works and goes to school. His grandmother does not like rap music. But she is cool with it as long as he has got a job. His grandfather told him, “Boy, don’t blow yo money. Don’t wind up in the motherfuckin news with it.” Separate the haters from the friends. Be cool.

The hook at the end is where nearly all the members of the St. Lunatics rap collective come together to rap.

[Murphy Lee] Nelly you cool wit it
[Nelly] Ali you cool wit it?
