Keith Murray (born 13 September 1974) is an American rapper from Long Island, New York. He was introduced to Erick Sermon by K-Solo, and Sermon featured Murray on the song "Hostile" from his album No Pressure. Murray's first album, The Most Beautifullest Thing in This World, was released in 1994 on Jive Records, and the title track remains Murray's biggest solo hit. Murray enjoyed a high media-profile by appearing on a Coca-Cola advertisement and guesting on remixes by artists such as Mary J. Blige, Total and LL Cool J.

Murray's second album Enigma was released in 1996, and was not as commercially successful as his debut. Around this time, he joined the group Def Squad alongside Sermon and Redman, and together they released the album El Niño in 1998. Murray's third album It's a Beautiful Thing was released in 1999, followed by He's Keith Murray in 2003. His latest album, Intellectual Violence, was released in 2008. He is currently working on his eighth album, Rap-Murr-Phobia 2: The Manifestation.
