‘Red Dead Bodies’ [Song]

Apr 6 2011

Jeff Nelson

Could this be one of the most disturbing choruses that hip hop has ever heard? “Red Dead Bodies” from Brotha Lynch Hung’s Coathanga Strangla features none other than a chorus of babies crying along with distorted guitar wails, effectively bringing Lynch’s disturbed psyche to the surface. Over a propelling beat produced by Michael “Seven” Summers, Lynch spits his intricate-yet-disjointed rhymes about the usual: killing and cutting up bodies. What separates Lynch from a mere horrorcore rapper is the sheer skill that he employs with his verses, towards the end of his first verse he accelerates his phrasing to a dizzying level of delivery, leaving a listener as breathless as the victims of the Coathanga Strangla. G-Macc offers his two cents on the second verse, displaying a knack for double-time flow that he wasn’t able to display on Dinner and a Movie. “Red Dead Bodies” is another prime example of Lynch’s dual sickness: sick MC, and siccmade individual.
