According to the Hollywood Reporter, Murphy even served as a bodyguard to his brother, Eddie, which he mentioned turned him into a hot head.

“It was to the point that, if I went to a show and you were the hater in the audience that was like, ‘That shit wasn’t funny’ POW! I’m jamming you, man,” Murphy said.

Murphy showed love for his brother this way, and others are showing love via social media remembering Murphy after his passing.
