"We thank our long-standing partner Irv Gotti, and the many talented artists at the iconic label for trusting our brand to tell their personal and inspiring stories. We look forward to bringing viewers a compelling music documentary series that reveals how this label consequently changed the music industry forever."- Executive Producer, Tiffany Lea Williams.
BET has announced a new hip-hop Docu-series to add under their belt; previously held with No Limit Records and Ruff Ryders Entertainment. This summer, a five-part Murder Inc. doc is set to hit the television waves. Irv Gotti and Ja Rule will narrate the 'untold' story on the rise and fall of Murder Inc. Records. Gotti expressed in a statement that he is not 'ashamed' of the lows faced during this journey as it helped him to be the man he is today. I'm unsure of how far they are really willing to dive into the story, but like the others... this should definitely be good.
s.o. to Vibe.
