New York, NY (January 26, 2004) — KOCH Records will release C-Murder’s new album, The Truest **** I Ever Said on March 22nd. Working and recording while serving time, C-Murder has assembled an amazing array of artists that will appear on the album including Soulja Slim, B.G., Akon, Capone and many more.
C-Murder is back and better than ever on his first single, “Y’all Heard,” which features southern hip hop favorite B.G. and will be going for adds at urban radio shortly. A video for the single, shot in prison and New Orleans, will be available in mid-February. The song is already garnering huge radio phones in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
Talking about his new album, C-Murder says “This record is real street; I’m kickin’ it back to the streets. It’s about the trials and tribulations of my life. People will be able to relate to it.”
C-Murder first burst onto the hip hop scene as a member of TRU, a trio super-group that also featured his brothers Master P and Silkk The Shocker. Their first album, True, was released in 1995 and was followed by Tru 2 Da Game in 1997. During that year, C-Murder appeared on a number of No Limit releases, including Master P’s Ghetto D and the I’m Bout It soundtrack. In the spring of 1998, he finally released his solo debut, Life or Death. Bossalinie followed a year later.
In 2000, C-Murder reached superstar status, first with his appearance in the 504 Boyz smash hit, “Wobble Wobble”; then with his third and most successful album yet, Trapped in Crime, propelled by the commercial success of its C-Murder/Snoop Dogg/Magic collaboration, “Down for My N’s.” This album also signaled the launch of Tru Records, C-Murder’s new label.
His 2000 release, Tru Dawgs, was preceded by tragedy when C-Murder was arrested and sentenced in a controversial nightclub shooting. He went to jail right after the album was finished and has been there ever since.
Now, four years later, The Truest **** I Ever Said will remind C-Murder fans about just what they’ve been missing.
