Best known as a member of the Def Squad trio (along with Redman and Erick Sermon), Long Island native Keith Murray went through major deals with Jive and Def Jam before finally landing at mid-major Koch for ‘07’s Rap-Murr-Phobia. Now with pure indie L.O.D. Records, Murray reassures the fans he’s still the Most Beautifullest Thing In This World, brushing off his haters with “You can hate me ‘cause my whip’s more flyer than yours/ ‘cause your girl wanna give me her drawers/ but don’t hate me ‘cause I’m beautiful/ I’m nice like that.” Topped with Erick Sermon‘s fresh-as-a-cool-breeze production, Don’t Hate Me Cause I’m Beautiful boasts a strong balance of old-school rhyme schemes and new-school analogies; a combination all hip-hop heads should love. Murray’s sixth album, Intellectual Violence, will hit stores April 22.
