Rapper Keith Murray suffered minor injuries yesterday (Feb. 27) after his tour bus flipped over twice and hit several cars on a North Carolina highway, his publicist said. The bus flipped over, hit a guardrail and struck other vehicles after the driver attempted to avoid another accident on I-85 near Durham yesterday morning.

Murray, the driver, and another passenger on the bus were taken to Maria Parham Hospital in nearby Henderson, where they were treated for minor injuries.

Murray was on a promotional tour for his upcoming Def Jam disc, "He's Keith Murray," which will be released next month. It's the rapper's first album since he was released from a halfway house in 2001 after serving three years in prison.

Murray was convicted in 1996 of bashing a teenage fan in the head with a bar stool during a 1995 club brawl; he was sentenced to three years in prison in 1998.
