    In this interview with TheUrbanDaily.com, rapper Uncle Murda, (whose mixtape “The First 48″ is out now) shares what his relationship was like with Lighty as a manager and mentor.

    “He made it easy to be a guy named ‘Uncle Murda,’” he says. “Chris was just there, business and personal. That was a major, major loss.”

    He also shares a funny story of following “Baby Chris” to the Marcy Projects in Brooklyn to look for a stolen cell phone.
