Necro is the brutalest rapper on the planet. He has reached legendary status by dropping non stop consistent hardcore albums on his own label, Psycho+Logical-Records. If you havent heard of Necro you must be living under a rock. Here is your chance to get to know the sickest fuck on earth.

Necro’s story begins much like your typical hip-hop story. Raised in the Glenwood projects of Brooklyn, NY, he was poor and began selling drugs at the age of 16, got into hip-hop … blah, blah, blah. But Necro is anything but your typical rapper. While some of his biggest influences are hip-hop greats like Rakim, Kool G Rap and Big Daddy Kane, the harsh realities of his life also drew him to the sounds of bands like Slayer and Megadeth. Although he was able to recite all the lyrics to Slick Rick’s “La-di-da-di” at 7 years old, he would also blast Metallica’s “Kill Em All” out the window of his bedroom so all the kids in the projects could hear it. He even admits to crying when Cliff Burton (Metallica’s bassist) died. Nope, he is not your typical rapper.

Beyond being just an artist, Necro is a true businessman. While dealing drugs he was so organized he even made up business cards for friends to page him. While he was successful, the day he got paid $3,000 for one beat he realized there was a less risky way to make a living. When he turned to making music, the lessons he learned hustling propelled him to independent success. If he isn’t one of the most well-known rappers in the hip-hop scene, he certainly is the hardest working. It took Wal-Mart 11 years and 15 stores to gross over a million in sales, Necro has done $1.2 million+ in half the time. He recruited hundreds of kids to sell cds for him all over the world until some smaller distributors helped him get even more product out. He is New York’s answer to Cash Money or No Limit. He is the street version of Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Russell Simmons, and Ray Krok combined.

Whether it was back in the day getting booed at the DMC battle contest in 94′ for wearing a Charles Manson t-shirt, to recently headlining a sold out show in NYC wearing an Obituary hoodie – he walks to the beat of a different drummer, literally. Igor Cavalera, drummer of heavy metal legends Sepultura is one of the many headbangers that Necro can count as fans. People like John Tardy of Obituary, Away of Voivod, members of Slipknot & Hatebreed who normally would say “rap is crap” have embraced him. Sure, he may be one of the most brutal rappers ever painting pictures of death and gore. But he also represents every kid in the struggle and sick fuck who is down and out, cast aside and forgotten by society.

Necro may quite possibly have some of the most dedicated followers in rap history. He strikes such a powerful chord with his fans that they permanently mark their bodies with his name. He even has the pictures to prove it – hundreds of them. His art transcends genres.

“Die!”, the sixth solo album from the Brooklyn-based rapper is an angst-filled collection featuring Necro’s signature blend of topics: death rap, porn songs, thug joints, a pimping anthem, a boxing track and a song about war, among other volative subjects. The album will be released June 4, 2010.
