“When I was in high school, like in 91, this girl that had lived in a new development, she had issues with her personal life, and she sat in the garage, clogged up the exhaust pipe of her car, and she slowly died. That’s the first time I heard about that that really affected me first hand. One of my friends had to go through 90 years in jail, and on his girlfriend’s birthday, which is a sister of mine from my brother, Brady Shakim Owens, the gatekeeper of the LOD, he got killed at the Rec. My friend, Twoface, was in the garage and he shot himself in the head, on her birthday, cause he couldn’t go through that time. That stuff started hitting me. It drove me to create the record with my band.” –Murray on The Suicide Song.
