Should I make a beat?
00:01
[drumbeat]
00:02
[Interviewer] Definitely.
00:03
Essentials with Young Murda, you know?
00:04
It doesn't get better than that.
00:05
[synth music]
00:09
What's up GQ?
00:10
It's your boy Murda Beatz and these are my essentials.
00:15
My number one essential today
00:17
is my cook up, set up,
00:19
where I make all my music.
00:25
All right I'm 'bout to build my cook up station.
00:27
You know what I'm sayin'?
00:28
I need my laptop.
00:29
Just 'cause if I did every one individually
00:31
it's like a little too much, you know?
00:32
[Interviewer] What kind of laptop is that?
00:33
A Razer.
00:34
The interface.
00:36
RME Babyface.
00:37
You know what I'm sayin'?
00:37
If you wanna make beats like me,
00:38
you know you gotta get a RME Babyface.
00:41
It's a cord.
00:42
You know, you need one of these.
00:43
Dre Beats portable speaker I stole from a hotel in New York.
00:48
You can't find these anymore like that, you know?
00:50
It's a Persian rug mouse pad, you know?
00:52
So, whenever you see this in a studio,
00:54
you know it's going down.
00:55
[Interviewer] Why the Razer instead of an Apple?
00:57
It's just easier to like, get all the plug-ins
00:59
and stuff on a Windows computer.
01:01
And that's kinda like what I started on.
01:03
But now, I think they made it a lot easier
01:05
to use Apple now for stuff,
01:07
because before, FL Studio wasn't on Macs and stuff.
01:11
So people were like partitioning their stuff.
01:14
Yeah, it's like a little four minute beat.
01:16
Not bad.
01:17
[synth music]
01:19
My next essentials: slides.
01:22
I always use slides, all the time.
01:23
Airports, in the house, out, studios,
01:26
wherever I go. You know what I'm sayin'?
01:27
Gotta keep some slides on deck.
01:29
[Interviewer] Do you go socks with the slides
01:30
or no socks?
01:31
Socks with the slides, no socks with the slides,
01:33
depends how I feel, you know?
01:34
I usually go socks.
01:35
If I'm like, in the backyard or going to the beach
01:37
or going in the pool and stuff, obviously no socks.
01:40
These are Off-White.
01:41
You could tell that they're everyday,
01:42
like, they're kinda worn out.
01:43
Most of the stuff I brought today are like worn out.
01:45
'Cause it's everyday essentials.
01:47
Sometimes, when I'm drunk or something, it gets confusing.
01:50
When yeah, they're the wrong way.
01:54
So yeah.
01:55
[synth music]
01:58
Next essential,
02:01
some YSL cologne, you know what I'm sayin'?
02:04
Smells good.
02:05
I spray here, and then I'll get on both sides,
02:07
and then I'll spray here and get it right here,
02:09
and then I spray and I walk into it.
02:10
It's a whole lot.
02:11
Always, you know what I'm sayin'?
02:12
Everyday, put some cologne on.
02:14
Never know who you're gonna bump into,
02:15
what meeting you're gonna have to run in on.
02:17
Shout-out my boy Capo.
02:19
He put me on to this cologne.
02:20
You know what I'm sayin'?
02:21
I don't know, ever since, just been wearing this.
02:23
Been doing a lot of good stuff in my life, so.
02:25
I probably been wearing this for about,
02:27
maybe like, two years now.
02:29
I remember like, when I was a kid
02:30
my mom would always get me cologne for Christmas.
02:32
So I'd like, put it on,
02:33
but I didn't really like it when I was a kid.
02:36
[upbeat music]
02:41
Carmex, you know what I'm sayin'?
02:42
Definitely need some ChapStick, all the time.
02:44
Lips get chapped, you never know, you know?
02:45
You always gotta make sure that you look good.
02:47
[Interviewer] What makes the Carmex better
02:48
than the other brands?
02:50
Honestly, it gives it like a little cool feeling.
02:54
I like that, it's not bad.
02:56
[upbeat music]
03:03
Goyard wallet.
03:04
Gotta keep your cards and your I.D. and some money,
03:07
and you know what I'm sayin'?
03:08
This is definitely a big essential.
03:10
I actually had it a couple years ago,
03:12
but then someone lost it.
03:14
I had stuff in my old one.
03:16
I had like, a picture of my parents.
03:18
[Interviewer] You didn't lose it, someone else lost it?
03:18
No, my boy Brian.
03:21
[Interviewer] What happened?
03:22
I don't know man, I don't know.
03:24
[upbeat music]
03:27
Goyard belt.
03:28
This is actually a really cool piece,
03:29
because this is discontinued.
03:30
I bought this a few years ago.
03:32
As you can tell it's kinda worn out.
03:33
But I wear this almost every day.
03:35
I have other belts too, but this is
03:36
just like my go-to.
03:37
You can't really find them anymore you know?
03:39
[upbeat music]
03:44
My next essential is some earbuds.
03:47
Dre Beats.
03:48
I don't know, I like these just for planes and stuff.
03:50
I always wear these on the plane.
03:51
I always fall asleep with them in my ear and stuff.
03:54
I know other people got the other EarPods and stuff,
03:57
but I'd definitely lose those.
03:58
And how I found out about these specifically,
04:00
I was on the Revolt panel like two years ago,
04:02
and they gave me these as a gift.
04:04
And then I just loved them.
04:05
I just started using them all the time.
04:06
I've lost them a bunch of times, got new ones.
04:08
So, shout-out to Revolt, shout-out to Diddy.
04:11
[Interviewer] What are you listening to right now?
04:12
Man, I listen to a bunch of rap music and stuff,
04:15
and if I'm just trying to go to sleep,
04:17
I'll put on some spa music.
04:19
[Interviewer] What do you research for Spa music?
04:21
Spa Music, yeah, oceans calming music or something.
04:24
I don't know, I actually like it a lot.
04:25
It puts me in a great zone.
04:26
[Interviewer] Do you sleep on planes?
04:27
Every time I'm on a plane.
04:29
Why do I wanna be up on a plane?
04:30
It's like, there's turbulence, it's crazy.
04:32
I'd rather just go to sleep and wake-up
04:33
in the next city.
04:34
It just makes sense, you know?
04:35
[upbeat music]
04:41
Is that the next one?
04:42
Keys.
04:43
Got the Baldwin key.
04:45
For who knows what this key is?
04:47
You know what I'm sayin'?
04:48
Room key, car key, Lamborghini.
04:51
Lambo truck, you know what I'm sayin'?
04:52
[Interviewer] When did you get it?
04:53
Last year, when it came out.
04:54
[Interviewer] Do you like it?
04:55

04:56
[Interviewer] What was your first car?
04:57

05:08
[upbeat music]
05:14
Portable Xbox, it's pretty dope.
05:18
I bring this on the road all the time.
05:22
The TV, so you know I can game wherever I wanna game.

I still play the old Fight Night.
05:32
I have the 360 version.
05:33
I used to be PlayStation, PS1, PS2
05:36
and then I got a Xbox.
05:37
Then from there a 360 up to Xbox.
05:39
[upbeat music]
05:44
The next essential is a watch.
05:45
It doesn't matter what watch it is,
05:47
it could be any watch.
05:47
It's always good, as a man,
05:49
to have a watch on and check the time.
05:50
You know, this is actually a stopwatch too,
05:52
so if I need to time someone or something,
05:53
you know, I could time it.
05:55
[Interviewer] Do you keep your time set right?
05:57
No, honestly, I don't.
05:59
I could use it for other things.
06:02
Like, how deep I am in the water.
06:04
[upbeat music]
06:08
My phone.
06:09
So, my phone, you know,
06:10
I could tell the time, if my watch isn't set.
06:13
[Interviewer] What's your favorite app on your phone?
06:14
I think Twitter's my favorite.
06:15
I like this motivational quotes page.
06:17
Lastly, but not least,
06:18
this is probably the most important one:
06:20
God, you know?
06:21
My best friend.
06:22
You gotta have 'em with you,
06:23
keep God first at all times.
06:24
You know what I'm sayin'?
06:25
Get you through your day.
06:26
Hard day, good day,
06:27
but always thank God no matter what.
06:28
Through good and bad.
06:29
If you're having a good day, bad day,
06:31
always thank God.
06:32
He should be right up there, bing.
06:35
You know?
