The Love Story behind “The Suicide Song”

Meet Keith Murray

Keith Murray is a world-class lyricist. Murray has dropped five solo albums and has collaborated with other Hip Hop legends like Erick Sermon, Funkmaster Flex, and Redman. He’s also part of Def Squad Cypher trio.

Due to losing people who were close to him to suicide, Keith decided to write about it. When he was in high school, a girl in his class committed suicide by asphyxiation. Another loss was a friend of Keith’s who shot himself in the head. Both people touched Keith’s life.
