Biography

Brotha Lynch Hung (born Kevin Mann) is an MC and producer from Sacramento, CA who began rapping at 13. Lynch Hung’s lyrics are notorious for featuring highly explicit themes, including murder, rape and cannibalism. Lynch Hung debuted with the 1993 album 24 Deep, which featured stories of the struggles involved with being affiliated with a local street gang in Sacramento’s “Garden Blocc.” Lynch Hung has also helped Master P with albums like I’m Bout It, E-40’s Southwest Riders and Mr. Serv-On’s Life Insurance. Lynch’s first known work is his production for X-Raided’s “Niggas In Blacc” (91) and the callaboration album “Nigga Deep” with Triple Sicx Bounty, released in 1992 and re-released in 1998.

Brotha Lynch Hung has been described as the creator of the “horrorcore rap genre”, and has sold 1.4 million cds independently. His rapping style has been described as smooth and quickly delivered.

Some listeners argue that Lynch Hung’s 24 Deep album defines his musical style, but Lynch Hung has said in interviews and online forums that it does not.

Lynch Hung’s second album Season of Da Siccness in 1995 proved to be the one of the most gruesome and mysogynistic Gangsta Rap albums ever released, graphically chronicling a life of drug use and sale, promiscuity, ultra-violence, rape, infanticide, and supposed cannibalism. This is Lynch’s most commercially successful album, as it has now achieved gold album sales status.
