Coming at you full force, with energy, charisma and realness from platinum-plus rap group the St. Lunatics, Murphy Lee made his long awaited solo debut with Murphy's Law on September 23. Though new to the game as a solo artist, when you see him on stage and hear his flows, you know he's no rookie. He's been at it for a minute and is here to stay, hoping to make a name for himself in those legendary books of hip-hop. His first single, "What Da Hook Gon Be," featuring Jermaine Dupri, is already heating up airwaves and dances floors across the nation… Stay tuned for this kid, he will not disappoint.

[The Industry Insider] When I think of the St. Lunatics, there are three words that really stick out in my mind: family, loyalty and commitment …to see something as genuine as this in the entertainment industry nowadays is rare and unique. Is there anything else that you would add to this list?

Murphy Lee I would add knowledge, wisdom and understanding. It's hard to even think about associating these words with musical acts, but the St. Lunatics prove to us time after time that they got love for their derrty's.

[The Industry Insider] Being that Kyjuan is your older brother, what has it been like being able to work, grow and become successful with your family? And is there anything special that you feel you've gained?

Murphy Lee Yeah, it's the best. Me being the youngest especially, I get so much from them. They're four different people, so I'm getting four different things-to make me as one. It's good to work with people you're close to.

[The Industry Insider] Okay. Country Grammar went 9x platinum, St. Lunatics: Free City went platinum, Nellyville went 6x platinum, Ali's album, Heavy Starch did well and now we have YOU, Murphy Lee - the young school boy up next at bat with your debut album entitled Murphy's Law dropping on September 23rd. What can we expect from this album as far as producers, artists, song topics and other things?

Murphy Lee I hope I'll be up in those platinums! (Laughing) I want to be part of that resume. I'm out here working hard. I worked hard on the album; I'm working hard on promoting the album …I hope it does well. It's a good project and we're all out here selling this thing, so I hope it does good. Jermaine Dupri did two tracks, Mannie Fresh did a track, Jazze Phae did a track, Basement Beats, Jay E., Wally, Koko and City Spud even did a track from jail and that was crazy. That's pretty much it.

[The Industry Insider] How's City doing?

Murphy Lee He's doing good man, doing what he can do.

[The Industry Insider] What do you think your personal strengths are?

Murphy Lee I would probably say, just being smart. It's really hard because you could just quit at anytime, but you just gotta hang in there and have stamina, period. That's our strength.

[The Industry Insider] Now we know you're doing a lot, you're on the Bad Boys 2 soundtrack rhyming on "Shake Ya Tailfeather" with Puff and Nelly, and you're also doing cross promotions with Champs Sports. What's next for you?

Murphy Lee Man, just this album right now, maybe movies. Kyjuan is writing movies and that's about it, really, just this album. That's all I know so far.

[The Industry Insider] You've been doing a lot of things and making guest appearances in songs and what not. To what do you attribute your success thus far?

Murphy Lee I've been doing a lot, that's for sure, but I ain't did enough though, I gotta do some more stuff, then I can think about that.

[The Industry Insider] Okay, sounds good. What phrase or piece of advice would you like to leave with other young people who want to be successful in life?

Murphy Lee Just work hard and don't quit. If there's something that you really want to do, go on and do it. You can do anything. You're gonna get your chance to do anything if you work hard at it but don't make your hobby your job, do what you're really good at.
