UMe, in collaboration with Murder Inc. and Republic Records has unveiled It’s Murda: The Best of Murda Inc., a sterling new compilation highlighting the hits of the seminal rap label.
The new project includes hits from Ja Rule, Ashanti, Lloyd, and Charli Baltimore, plus collaborative tracks that feature Ja teaming up with Jay-Z and DMX, Jennifer Lopez, Fat Joe and Jadakiss, and more.

Also available as a collector’s edition Triple-LP box set, The Women of Def Jam features a who’s who of legendary, lauded, platinum-selling and Grammy-winning artists, from the aforementioned Ashanti to Nikki D, Foxy Brown, and Boss, to Amerie, Teyana Taylor, Alessia Cara, Rapsody, Jhené Aiko, and more.
A first-time ever collection in tribute to the women whose music has dominated hip-hop and R&B from the 90s to the present, The Women of Def Jam pays long-overdue homage to the record label whose staff, at every level, comprises the most inclusive and diverse group of female executives in the industry today.
