Kinetic 9 or Beretta 9 (born Samuel Craig Murray) is a member of the hip-hop group Killarmy, an affiliation of the group Wu-Tang Clan. He is originally from Steubenville, Ohio. 4th Disciple, another Ohio native & the group producer of Killarmy introduced Kinetic 9 along with ShoGun Assasson to the group. Through hard work and determination, they became one of the earliest and successful groups that emerged from the Wu Tang camp in the early 1990s. They went on to record three successful albums Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars (1997), Dirty Weaponry (1999), In the Clear (2000) and their latest, Fear, Love & War (2001).

Kinetic 9 appeared on the track "Ratiug" from John Frusciante's 2012 album, PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone[1] as well as the tracks "FM" and "909 Day" from the album Letur-Lefr. He has also appeared on tracks with artists such as Craig G, RBX, Reef the Lost Cauze, Mr. Bill, Scienz of Life, Block McCloud, True Kash, and Bizz.[2]
