With Dinner And A Movie in 2010, Brotha Lynch Hung introduced fans to one of the most sadistic and brutal serial killers to ever stalk the streets. The Coathanga Strangla, a demented individual with a taste for blood, came to life through Lynch’s cinematic saga. As the story unfolded on Coathanga Strangla, the man behind the mask began his descent into complete and utter madness. Murder was no longer a hobby, but a necessity.
Leaving a trail of flesh and blood, the Coathanga Strangla claimed innocent victims track after track. Brotha Lynch Hung used his music to reflect on every murder, each more terrifying than the last. On Dinner And A Movie, the killer preyed on MCs who were not worthy of the stage. On Coathanga Strangla, everybody was fair game. Women were especially vulnerable to the Coathanga Strangla’s sociopathic nature. With a hungry beast inside of him, The Coathanga Strangla grew into a monster, unlike any that had been encountered before.
Killers, much like hunters, have a need to collect trophies. Every kill is like a prize and with each one, the number of trophies grows. During his killing spree, Jeffrey Dahmer claimed 17 bodies. John Wayne Gacy collected a staggering 33 kills. Could the Coathanga Strangla have both of them beat?
Do you know what the official body count is for the Coathanga Strangla? Have you figured it out? Let us know in the comments below!
Brotha Lynch Hung has been in hiding for awhile–fighting the discomfort of a newfound and imposed sobriety and maintaining an enigmatic status for the past six months plus. Now, as he prepares to construct Mannibalector, the final chapter of the Coathanga Strangla trilogy, Lynch is with us again. We caught up with the candid and surprisingly polite MC to find out what’s going on with Mannibalector, his appearance on Welcome To Strangeland, and how it feels to be smoking and drinking again.

With the Coathanga Strangla trilogy approaching its final chapter, Brotha Lynch Hung looks to take his music to the darkest places possible.
The saga of a murderous MC has captured the imaginations of fans everywhere as they anticipate the end. One of the most memorable pieces of the trilogy is the cinematic and stellar production that has so perfectly complemented Lynch’s storytelling. As a large contributor to that sound (especially on the second installment, Coathanga Strangla), Seven looks to return for Mannibalector and help Lynch create his most terrifying album yet. We recently spoke with Seven about his relationship with Brotha Lynch Hung and what fans can expect from Mannibalector.
Why do you think you have such great chemistry with Lynch?
I was actually just a fan of Lynch before I ever worked with him. You know,Season Of Da Siccness andLoaded, especially Loaded, that was an album when I was in high school , I played that album out. It was one of my favorite albums. He was somebody I always wanted to work with. So when I finally got the opportunity to start working with him, it’s one of those things where I had followed him for so long that I sort of understood his music. After just having a few conversations with him, I started to really understand him and how he works and how his mind works. Sort of the same way that I work with Tech because I understand – Tech could shoot me a text message or something with just a sentence or two in it of what he wants to do, and I’ll know exactly what he’s going for. I have the same thing with Lynch, I’ve been able to sort of build that with him. I think just understanding him and understanding the way his mind works makes it really easy to know what he’s going for.
How dark do you plan to go with Mannibalector?
Well, we’ll have to see. The ones I’m working on now are really dark. Darker than anything we’ve done so far. I don’t know if you’ve heard him talk about this Holloween EP that he was working on. That EP was probably the darkest of all the music and I’m going even darker now with the stuff for Mannibalector. It’s going to be dark.
Even Mac Lethal can appreciate Strange Music’s resident cannibal. In his latest YouTube contribution, the Kansas City MC gives fans another one of his speedy raps, only this time he aims his sharp rhymes at the President, Fred Phelps, and the Tea Party, all while sporting a Brotha Lynch Hung sweatshirt. Calling for change, Mac spits a frighteningly fast flow and backs it up with substance. Fans can follow his lightning fast words thanks to the lyrics on the video. Not everyone may agree with Mac Lethal’s message, but at least Strange Music fans can appreciate his choice in gear.
It’s not often that a track with Young Bleed and Tech N9ne is going to be completely stolen from a third party, but Brotha Lynch Hung did exactly that with his offering of the final verse on “How Ya’ Do Dat’ Again” from Young Bleed’s debut Strange album Preserved. After many back-and-forths, we had a chance to catch up with the enigmatic MC from Sactown to find out how much of a relief it was for Lynch to be able to spit a verse about something other than guts, cannibalism, and serial killing. Lynch also shared his perspective on his old Priority label mate, Young Bleed. Continue reading
