New York native Keith Murray had some radio listeners scratching their heads this week after the 41-year-old Def Squad representative made a “big announcement” on Hot 97. Murray called into the station and told the Ebro In The Morning show, “Keith Murray’s coming out of the closet. I’m gay.”
“The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World” rhymer then continued by saying, “I’m happy. I’ve been happy all my f*cking life… I’m coming out of the closet with new music and a new documentary.”
Murray also revealed he went to rehab and has spoken to a psychiatrist. He says the experience helped him “clear my head.”
