So Misunderstood

This made me laugh:

Rapper C-Murder, in jail after a murder conviction in the 2002 killing of a teenager, has changed his stage name because he thinks he's been misunderstood. "I am not a murderer," the rapper, whose real name is Corey Miller, said in a statement released Tuesday.

He will now go by C Miller, said his publicist, Giovanni Melchiorre of New York-based Koch Records. Miller's statement said people had misinterpreted the C-Murder name, which he intended as a reflection of his upbringing in one of New Orleans' most violent housing projects.

"From the beginning, I have been a target because of who I am, my stage name and for my success as an entertainer and the success of my siblings," said Miller, whose brothers Percy and Vyshonn are also rappers. "People hear the name C-Murder and they don't realize that the name simply means that I have seen many murders in my native Calliope projects neighborhood."

--Right. Wonder what The Killers have to say about this. I suppose he believes people thought the Go Go's were real go-go dancers, and that The Presidents of the United States of America traveled on Air Force One.

You Said

I doubt his cell mate cares what his stage name is.

You should think about that BEFORE he started rapping...idiot!

HOLLLLAAA!

let's all be fair, and a little smart. if the killers and 36 mafia and murder inc. can choose their own names without accusation, why can't c-murder? and why can't someone take his word for it unless there is probable reason to link him to a murder, other than his stage name? too many prejudices in this world.

Umm, okay, dude. Clearly we are all unfair and unintelligent based on our remarks. HUH?!

And you should take note: Murder Inc. no longer goes by that name? It's now just "The Inc." I think the reasons are clear.
