Is Murder Inc. Making Moves Back Into Hip-Hop?

Gather the gang, the boys are coming back to town. 

A staple record label of the 90s and early 2000s, Murder Inc. is set to make a comeback and the hip hop community should be ready for a major rap killing. Former CEO Irv Gotti took to Instagram to announce that his "money is right" and "Oh by the way!! I'm about to RELAUNCH MURDER INC RECORDS!!"

Oh and by the way!! I'm about to RE LAUNCH MURDER INC RECORDS!! I got some new artist. New music. Same fucking MOVEMENT! The Worlds Most Talented Record Label. Everyone had a lot of fun. While I had to re group from the Feds coming after me. Had to plot and plan and fall back while I watched everyone else eat. I watched gracefully. I applauded and congratulated everyone who deserved it. Never one bone of hate in my body. I love to see my niggas win and eat. BUT ITS MY TURN NOW!! My Money is right. And I'm back!! Major Announcements Coming Soon. Who Murder Inc will be partnered with. And what Artist I am fucking with!! #murderinc #murda4life #visionaryideas Follow @visionaryideas

If the all caps are any indication, Gotti is just as jacked about this announcement as we are. The record company disbanded back in 2003 after Gotti says the Feds came after him and the label. The CEO says he has a slew of new talent and music to bring to the table and that they plan on bringing that same type of movement mindset to the current rap game that was so undeniably the Murder Inc. way back in the late 90s.

Though the familiar names of Ja Rule, Ashanti and Lloyd may not be the new faces of the franchise, we still can't wait to see what kind of sound Gotti rolls out for us. Although, Ja Rule is still listed as an artist on Wikipedia; perhaps they're hinting at something...

But, we’re fairly sure Ja Rule has got his hands full right now, considering the multi-million dollar lawsuits (yes, with an s) he currently faces. NBD.
