Last night St. Louis' own Murphy Lee took home a Grammy award for "Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group" for the #1 hit, "Shake Ya Tailfeather." "Shake Ya Tailfeather" the summer hit of 2003 features Nelly, P. Diddy and Murphy Lee, the youngest member of Nelly's platinum-selling five member unit the St. Lunatics. The Grammy-winning song appears on Murphy Lee's gold-certified solo debut, Murphy's Law (Derrty Entertainment/Universal Records) as well as on the Bad Boys IIsoundtrack (Bad Boy Records).
The win comes as Universal Records launches Lee's next single, "Luv Me Baby" also from Murphy's Law. The song, featuring Sleepy Brown (who also guests on Outkast's "The Way You Move") was produced by Jazze Pha and is off to a strong start. Last week, the song was the #1 "Most Added" record at the crossover radio format, an indication that Murphy Lee's star is on the rise. His current breakout single "Wat Da Hook Gon Be" featuring Jermaine Dupri is a solid hit at radio and was a top request at BET. It is presently in heavy rotation at MTV.
"This means a lot to us," stated the talented 20-year old rapper referring to the St. Lunatics, "All the hard-work and struggling has paid off."
Murphy Lee is performing select dates throughout the country and is slated to perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show later this month. Fans can also catch Murphy Lee on an upcoming episode of UPN's The Parkers where he performs his new song, "Luv Me Baby."
