he graduated from Monash University in Melbourne with a Bachelor Of Law. Not surprising really, considering his intelligence is evident in his music when you take the time to actually listen to it. Plus, he’s got the smarts to run his very own label, One Two records.
Murray was 21 years old when he was injured in 2001. Known as Illy, he’d been working the Melbourne hip-hop scene, doing little shows here and there, building his name and making links with the local Crooked Eye rap crew and its frontman Phrase. At the time, he was slowly beginning to gather material together for his debut album. “It was really shit timing,” he says of the injury. “I was overwhelmed at it happening, and I just wanted to get better.”
