Keith Murray Dispels Rumors Of Fight With Tupac Shakur

The Def Squad rapper dispels the rumors about rumbling with 'Pac and speaks on his career at Def Jam.

ThisIs50 and Young Jack Thriller recently caught up with Keith Murray to talk about the Long Island vet's illustrious career. During the interview, Murray spoke on the rumors that he and the late Tupac Shakur got into a scuffle back in '95 at the House of Blues. According to the Def Squad emcee, he and 'Pac did have a heated exchange about the intent of his and LL Cool J's "I Shot Ya," but the conversation ended amicably. Murray added that the rumors came from a media outlet that took his words out of context.

"That's some dumb shit to say that I beat Tupac Shakur up," he said. "First of all, I want to give a shout out to Afeni Shakur, she may have seen it. If you look at the clip, you'll see that I never said that I beat Tupac up; I said that we squared off in the House of Blues because when he got shot [in '94], he thought that we all made that record 'I Shot Ya' with LL Cool J…about him. When I seen him [in the House of Blues], I said, 'Nah, we ain't talking about you,' we shook hands at the end of the night and that was that…I would never disrespect Tupac. When I first met him, it was in New York. I seen him, and I said, 'You the shit,' and he said 'No, you the shit.'"

He added, "The media think they real slick, too. They would word a clip different than what it is in the clip, and a lot of that shit is going on…I know who put that clip out, and that was wrong for what y'all did. Y'all twist my words up, I'ma find you in the street and take it to the streets on you. Now you can take that and clip it, flip it, dip it, however you want."

Keith also spoke about an incident in which he did get into a physical confrontation with a Def Jam employee. Although he says that the claims of injury made by the employee were exaggerated, the fact that he got so aggressive did hurt him financially with the label.

"[If I could do anything over again,] I wouldn't have been so aggressive," he said. "Like the Def Jam deal - we were in Texas, and I got into it with a person that worked there [at Def Jam] in the marketing [department]. So he went all the way back to New York and told him that I jumped on him, I beat him up. He had on a neck brace and he wasn't even hurt. But he played it out and it fucked up my money at Def Jam. I was physical with him [and] I shouldn't have done that."

    both those guys were the shit. that's what they were trying to say. pac was really upset before he died. i hate things went down in hiphop like that. i appreciate when guys settle beef in the right way nowadays. it ain't about being a pussy. its about letting go of bullshit before you get too deep into trouble.

    Go check out "Representin' for Ron G" by 2Pac, Big Stretch, I think Erick Sermon is in there, and also Keith Murray. Dope 90's track from back in the day. That'll settle any disputes of thinking Keith Murray is bullshitting in this interview...

    I find this shit funny because, 1 - all you fan boys keep defending 2pac the actor like you knew him, in real life he would sign an autograph and tell you to get the hell on or please keep buying my wack albums 2 - all you fan boys act like you were there watching 2pac, ten niggas deep, beating somebody up, maybe he did, when you fantasize about him at night, I don't believe it And 3 - he was too small to scare anybody nigga! Would you be scared of a little bald head nazi looking nigga squashing his face at you? Just because he's ten niggas deep and they have guns! Anybody can do that, what's the big fukin deal?

    Oh Jesus! Why does everyone think 2pac was this big strong untouchable guy? He was a fuking midget? He only ran his sissy mouth because he had guns behind him - but guess what, most rappers have guns behind them to, so what makes 2pac so strong? Listen to the end of the 2pac & outlaws track, 2pac himself said, I ain't shit without my homeboys And Keith Murray would have whipped midgets ass easily 1 on 1

    Pac was a crazy motherfucker people on the streets new that he was respected people from Nas`s crew had love for Pac and listened to Pac and Pac step to Nas and his crew 3 days before Pac`s shooting and eventual death he also had bumped into him in New York earlier 3-4 months back. Pac step to nas twice in his terroritory the 1st time I`m pretty sure he was outnumbered the second time they were both rolling deep Pac was rolling deep in his final days and Nas always rolled deep Nas was real to Pac considered Nas his most worthy enemy the best in NY and this all comes from Pac always blasting Illmatic in his car Outlawz have said this and on Bomb First he called Nas the ring leader because he considered him the most skilled both were planning to do a track probably One Nation which was a east coast west coast album double disk and he was going to remove the disses and put other people that were coming at him cause a lot of people were going at him and he went back at everyone. The media twisting shit and again creating hype out of false info twisting words and shit these were real guys Pac, Biggie, Eazy-E, Big L, Big Pun, Stretch, Yaki Kadafi, Guru of Gang Starr and all those who have past who were real and represented real hip-hop rap now we got my generation and this era fans like So Icy Boi below and artists like Drake and Waka SMH

    Wow fuck the media they twist everything now a days people don`t know shit everyone who knows hip-hop history knows that Keith Murray scrapped with Pac Keith Murray outside of house of blues or outside it and I didn`t even read this article just the title and I understood. Don`t listen to the msm there twisting everything Keith Murray said in a video where was drunk as fuck said he scrapped with Pac he never said he whopped his ass Keith Murray is not fake like that and even if he did beat Pac he can say he beat Pac fuck the dickriders I`m down with Pac trust me i`m a huge fan of pacs 600 songs some of the rarest shit from him so no one can say i`m hating on pac it is what it is but in this case that wasn`t the case and Pac was a scrapper he got on more scraps then all of the people who post here and will in the rest of there life i`m not dickriding but I know the history he scrapped a lot Pac was real he was street so was Keith Murray and these guys had there beef but both real guys and I respect both though Pac`s my favourite all time this is real street shit not like what other NY artist were doing to Pac like saying he got raped and shit and they new it wasn`t true wendy williams started that shit you know how many rappers have cussed out that bitch Method Man cussed her out not to long ago cause she said shit about his wife that bitch needs publicity. So these guys were real RIP to Pac and respects for Keith Murray for making it out of that whole era because it was chaos and mayhem on the streets

  • So Icy Boi!

  • Jay

    Yall really cant hold keith accountable for sayin that pac shit hes fucked uppp in the head lol but hes a wild boy he snuffed prodigy.

  • dentaldamboy

    Jay-Z has way too many dickriders. Jay-Z been a disloyal bitch for years and yet too many fags still talk about him like he's Biggie or Pac. Biggie and Pac were real dudes...they were loyal to the people who they came up with. Jay the exact opposite. He shit on everybody who helped him get to the top except Memphis he dude probably suck Jay-Zs dick when Beyonce is on tour. I swear, people who like Jay-Z worship him as if he was a god. There is nothing that he can do wrong in the eyes of his fans. Even when he makes shitty pop music like Young Forever people talk about him as if he makes only meaningful songs like Nas. Jay-Z definitely has he gayest fan base of all. I bet any one of Jay-Zs fans would agree to swallow his cock and fondle his balls on request. Everyone knows he's gonna be exposed as a fraud one day. And when he is, I hope all of his fucking bitch ass fans hang themselves.

    • Fuck Outta Here

      First, dis shit has nothin to do wit Jay. 2nd, the anti Jay Z mutha fuckaz is just as bad as his stans. All yall spend way to much time thinkin bout dude. talkin bout, 'dey on jayz nuts', you speaking about him in an article that ain't got shit to do wit him. So who really on his nuts. dumb as bitch.
