Keith Murray’s BET Awards performance stuns fans following disturbing video

Keith Murray‘s mental state has been a topic of discussion as of late. However, after his surprise performance at the BET Awards, it appears things may be looking up for the rapper.


Premiering on Sunday (June 25), this year’s BET Awards were more star-studded than ever. However, one of the most memorable moments was when Def Squad – comprised of Murray, Redman, and EPMD co-founder Erik Sermon — took the stage to let fans reminisce about the “Golden Era” of the 90s in honor of Hip Hop’s 50th anniversary this year.

While the performance was amazing to watch, some fans were confused when Murray took the stage. The Long Island native was recently spotted in a video online appearing to be under the influence of drugs.

However, Murray’s recent antics haven’t affected his bravado or stage presence, as he rocked his performance of his hit track, “The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World,” which appeared on his 1994 album of the same name.

A disturbing video of Murray surfaced online recently, causing many to wonder about his mental state. Even Lord Jamar, who’s had a long-standing beef with the rapper, put it aside to offer his long-time adversary some support.

“Our brother @keithmurrayrap obviously needs serious help,” he wrote in an Instagram post featuring the clip. “I don’t have to see this man do drugs in front of me to know he’s on drugs. Dude crossed a line with me, that I believe if he wasn’t on drugs he wouldn’t have crossed, so I forgive him. We need to get our brother clean, cause this is a horrible look.”

9th Wonder, Doodlebug from Digable Planets, and Immortal Technique all commented on the post in support of Murray, as well.

Prior to his IG post, Lord Jamar implored Murray to get help on his podcast last week. Jamar was addressing Murray’s prior appearance on another podcast, in which Murray allegedly threatened to “slap the shit out of [Lord Jamar]” when he saw him again.

But rather than feed into the taunts, Jamar addressed the larger, underlying issue. “At the end of the day, I just want to say that addiction [is] something that is serious,” he said.
