After having established himself by going against one of the greatest battle rappers of all time, Big Daddy Kane, Long Island native Keith Murray was introduced to the world on Erick Sermon s No Pressure. In 1994 Murray released The Most Beautifullest Thing in This World and earned four mics in The Source. He quickly established himself as one of the most creative, smart, and often most violent rappers in Hip Hop. After being featured on the Def Squad cover of Rapper's Delight with Erick Sermon and Redman in 1998 and R. Kelly's Home Alone, Murray exploded back onto the music scene in 2001 after being incarcerated, with an energetic, syllable-packed verse on Fatty Girl. He s Keith Murray in 2003 was highlighted by crossover hits Candy Bar and Yeah, Yeah U Know It. With the success of his last album which sold more than 13,000 copies in the first week and featured Nobody Do It Better with Tyrese and Junior, the 'Most Beautifullest Thing' is back with his sixth album, Intellectual Violence. Twenty-five tracks deep, Intellectual Violence is smart violence from start to finish as Murray pens witty metaphors and complex word play backed by his crew L.O.D. On Pen Life he talks about his time in prison and listeners get an emotional look into his intellectual violence on Anger. On the final cut, Don't Hate Me Cause I'm Beautiful, Murray comes full circle addressing his title as the 'Most Beautifullest Thing' saying, you can hate me cuz my whip's more flyer than yours / cuz your girl wanna give me her drawers... but don't hate me cuz I'm beautiful I'm nice like that. Keith Murray is just that, and on Intellectual Violence he solidifies himself as one of the nicest, most complex, and easily one of the most beautifullest.
