Here’s something I bet you weren’t expecting. The 43-year-old incarcerated New Orleans rapper C-Murder has released what appears to be a diss track aimed at none other than his brother, Master P. The track, fittingly entitled “All I Wanted 2 Be Was a Soldier Master P Diss”, finds C-Murder pinning himself as “the black sheep” and having some choice words for his older brother. “I’m having dreams that my brother’s trying to kill me and steal me / Now why this ni**a hate the real C / After the mills we still supposed to keep it gully / I went to jail and he barely said he didn’t love me” bluntly raps Murder. C-Murder clearly doesn’t mince words for anybody under any circumstance and there’s a lot more that he has to say to Master P. Check it out for yourself after the jump.
