Chopped Herring: CHK33FY01 ft. Keefy Keef

I thought that this will never happen but Chopped Herring finally made it ... Keefy Keef (Keith Murray's alter ego) and Chopped Herring Records present "Cause I'm Keefy Keef 1992 EP".

"The story begins in 1992 when Curt Cazal listened to talented MCs - one of those was the 18 years Keith Murray. Curt had a deal with Idlers and played them the "Cause I'm Keefy Keef" joint he had written with Keith. Due to a combination of touring, recording and Keith wanting to get his shit poppin, the rest of the Keefy tracks were never fully completed. 

Around this time Keef met and then signed with Erick Sermon and got features on Sermon's "No Pressure" album on "Hostile" and "Swing It Over Here" - and the rest is history. He became part of the Def Squad crew along with EPMD and Redman and drops his debut album and single "The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World" on Jive in 1994." [source]

The whole story has a fantastic read so check it out and get your copy of the EP now before it's all gone - and this will sell out quickly - trust me. What you get is a 5 track EP plus 1 acapella. Curt put the original reels in a baking process and was indeed successful to make this release finally happen.

A1: Three's Company (Original Demo)
A2: Thoughts My Brain Consumes
A3: Flow Swiftly

B1: Cause I'm Keefy Keef (Demo)
B2: Lethal Dosage
B3: Flow Swiftly (Acapella)


The EP is limited to 300 copies only - first 75 copies on clear and black mixed colour vinyl, next 75 on silver and purple mixed colour vinyl and the remaining 150 are on traditional black vinyl. All copies come in a sticker cover.

My very special thanks goes out to Bob at Chopped Herring Records, Curt Cazal (good looking on all the latest CH releases, looking forward to the Soulbrotha collaboration with my homeboy 12 Finger Dan) and Keith Murray. All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion use only.
