Coming To America 2 is dropping on March 5th, and it’s about time. Fans can’t wait to see what’s next for Prince Akeem. In the meantime, Eddie Murphy’s name is getting brought up a lot.

Megan Thee Stallion has a ton of people who want to line up and collaborate with her next. Eddie Murphy is not of that thinking at all.

While promoting Coming To America 2 on the Tamera Hall Show, Murphy was asked about his musical inspirations, primarily bringing up his ties with music icon Rick James and his 1985 hit “Party All The Time.”

Murphy was asked about joining forces with some of today’s best artists, namely Megan Thee Stallion. The SNL alum laughed that off as he announced that he stopped putting out music, but that doesn’t mean he’s stopped. He just doesn’t put out new records anymore.


“I stopped putting music out but I still do music all the time. But The Rolling Stones don’t be puttin’ no records out. They’re playing they old tracks. Don’t nobody wanna hear The Rolling Stone new sh*t [laughs] Don’t nobody wanna hear no 75-year-old man’s track. I’m cool with tracking and having my little vault with my little tracks. A hundred years from now, you can hear all that stuff and be like, ‘Wow.'”

Eddie Murphy is 59-years-old, and he doesn’t seem interested in getting back into the music game. He is quite happy with his current projects, and the fact that nostalgia helped him grab the huge Coming To America sequel for Amazon Prime that he’s been wanting to do for years.

Don’t expect Megan Thee Stallion to feature on any Murphy tracks, but she’s still plenty busy.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
