Najee Murphy, also known as Naj Murph, was born and raised in Newburgh, NY. The sixth borough native fell in love with hip-hop at an early age by hanging around his father’s record store. His everlasting love for hip-hop continued to grow until his urge to create became inevitable. Ultimately, he hopes to become a major role model to inner-city youth that may have experienced similar upbringing to him. It wasn’t until his partnership with producer Nick Dean that he began to bombard his peers and acquaintances with his passion for hip-hop and his lyrical savvy. Shortly after the release of Opening Act, Naj received much attention from students at Morehouse College, Spelman College, and Clark-Atlanta University. Naj’s lyrical content exhibits a social conscience and a delivery that is reminiscent of hip-hop of the early 90s.
