Necro Inks Deal With Koch; Preps ‘Death Rap’

Indie rapper Necro’s Psycho+Logical-Records has inked a distribution deal with Koch Records and will release a new album this fall titled Death Rap.

 

Like previous albums, Death Rap will feature the Brooklyn native’s unique mixture of dark violent, raunchy lyrics, which have gained him a following across the world.

 

The title Death Rap is how Necro describes his brand of graphic hip-hop, which he said is influenced by early death metal bands like Death and singer King Diamond.

 

As a teen, he was a member of the metal band Injustice, which led to collaborations with artists like Sepultura, Napalm Death and Obituary.

 

“This promises to be the most murderous album of 2007,” Necro told AllHipHop.com. “If you like the extreme, violent s**t, than this record is for you!”

 

The deal marks a turning point for the rapper’s label, which he launched in 1999.

 

His first release was titled I Need Drugs, which spoofed LL Cool J’s classic single “I Need Love.”

 

Other albums followed, including Gory Days (), The Pre-Fix For Death () and The Sexocist ().

 

Necro’s Psycho+Logical-Records also produced and released the critically acclaimed solo albums from each member of rap group Non Phixion, which featured group members Goretex, Ill Bill and Sabac Red.

 

“I’m really excited about doing a deal with Koch for my label,” Necro said. “Koch is number one  for independent distribution right now, so it’s a good look for me.”

Necro will also be a featured performer on the Sound of the Underground tour this summer.

Death Rap hits stores Sept. 11.
