Keith Murray released his debut album, The Most Beautifullest Thing in This World, in 1994. If you’re doing the math that’s 20 years. the album hit certified gold, which would go on to be the highest selling album of his career. 20 years later, Murray is touring to celebrate 20 years in the game.
Murray, whose hip-hop legacy includes a classic battle with Big Daddy Kane, first gained notoriety when he appeared on Erick Sermon’s solo debut album on the track Hostile. As 1/3 of the newly dubbed “Def Squad” – that also included Redman – he signed with Jive and went on to release his classic solo album. It was well received (reaching #5 on the US R&B Charts) and made Murray a star. Murray released four subsequent solo projects, a Def Squad album and a collaboration project with Canibus – he also worked with an A-list of hip-hop royalty along the way.
Recently, Murray was slated to battle 1/3 of the classic group ONYX, Fredro Starr, in Atlanta Georgia. The battle was unfortunately cancelled when the promoter was unable to pay the artists. Regardless Murray has been hitting various radio shows, including Power 105’s The Breakfast Club (among others) to promote 20 years of The Most Beautifullest Thing.
