Murphy Lee 

Friday, August 27, at the City Market.

All of the St. Lunatics stand in the shadow of Nelly, but youngest member Murphy Lee probably has the biggest profile of the bunch. He's not only appeared on some of Nelly's signature tracks ("Batter Up," "Air Force Ones,") but also collaborated with his boss and P. Diddy on last summer's Grammy-winning, dance-floor-packing single "Shake Ya Tailfeather." Too bad the masses slept on Lee's 2003 solo debut, Murphy's Law, which gave the nasal-toned rapper an opportunity to explore his favorite topic: women. Whereas many thuggish microphone maulers are quick to talk smack about the fairer sex, Lee comes across as something of a romantic in an era when testosterone still rules the rap roost.
