The billboard charts had quite a few Murder Inc hits as the record label was very popular in the early 2000s for Hip-Hop and R&B. The label was pushed under the leadership of Irv Gotti, talented acts such as Ja Rule and Ashanti would become multi-platinum selling artists. Ja Rule and Ashanti’s tandem was shown to be a hit formula and it was even speculated by some that their chemistry was more than musical. That idea was shot by Ashanti in 2020.

It was never revealed what exactly happened to the popular music label until now. Irv Gotti’s rise and fall of the company will be documented on the small screen.

Billboard reported that the Murder Inc story will be told through a docuseries set to premiere on BET. The docuseries will document the humble beginnings of the Irv Gotti label, the fall, and the very hopeful future as the label looks to make a return.
