American actor, comedian and musician, Eddie Murphy told rollingstones.com in an exclusive interview that all he had been doing was making music, “I haven’t been working on films, haven’t been developing movies, or any of that shit.” Murphy decided to come back into the music sphere 20 years after his last album, Love’s Alright released in the early 90s.
