Bizarre, which some of you may know as a former member of Detroit hip-hop group formed with Eminem – D12, has branched off onto his own this year, but still knows how to form a great collabo. Continue reading
Coming off his successful run with the Strange Noize Tour 2011, Irv Da Phenom has released his brand new mixtape, Dream Big Hustle Hard. Among the best tracks on the tape is the funky and crazy “Nightmare”. Joining Irv and Krizz Kaliko, Lynch steps in to bring his own nasty nightmare to life. Ripping into a flow full of multisyllabic knocks, Lynch’s voice creates a perfect compliment to the strange and off the wall production. Continue reading
The emotional side of one of the most gory lyrical geniuses seeps through in “Meat”. Writing with the weight of the world on his shoulders, Lynch describes his struggles to his son and the audience with references like “Strange Music got my back very hopefully, but if not, see there really ain’t no hope for me“. The chorus tells us how deep these emotions were when it was written. Definitely an emotionally hard-hitting song from Dinner and a Movie.
Drawing from classical influences, the production heard on “I’m Not Perfect” can be soothing and foreboding all at the same time. The delicate piano that plays throughout is hardened with some dramatic and eloquent strings that are paired with gun shots flying in the background like a warzone. Lynch didn’t come alone for this one, as he brings along COS, G-Macc, and Crookwood for the lyrical bludgeoning. Continue reading
Opening the door to the Coathanga Strangla’s murderous world, “Coathanga” leads listeners in like lambs to a slaughter. Michael “Seven” Summers once again constructs a treacherous sound for Lynch’s bloodbath, complete with striking piano notes and bone chilling strings. Lynch rips into the track with quick precision rhymes, landing some of his best multisyllabic flows on the whole album. His unique delivery on the hook sets “Coathanga” apart from most of the album, as Lynch sings:
With the chainsaw, leave your brains raw
Somebody just got cut
So when I’m coming in yo window with a machete and a pistol
best believe it’s just to get me a nut
Between necrophilia and homicide, “Coathanga” makes no apologies for the raw content contained within. Click here to purchase Coathanga Strangla on iTunes.
If there’s one thing cold blooded killers don’t feel, it’s remorse. Lynch reminds us of the Coathanga Strangla’s real evil on “It Happens”. Featuring First Degree The DE and Tall Cann, “It Happens” plays out like the most perverse of children’s melodies thanks to production from Michael “Seven” Summers. The most twistedly beautiful thing about the hook is not only it’s simplicity, but the chill that runs down from hearing the maniacally distorted voice repeating, “it happens”. This certainly earns it’s place as one of Lynch’s most frightening tracks.

Don’t let the name fool you, “Friday Night” is not another typical party song. COS joins Lynch on this grotesque murder scene, executed on what would be a fun night for most people. The bleak sound created by the production from Michael “Seven” Summers layers another predatory chapter in the second act of Lynch’s trilogy. In a very animalistic moment, Lynch declares that he isn’t afraid to die and boastfully reminds the world of what he is capable of. Laying out his evil plans, Lynch strikes his victims on the hook:
That’s what happened on a Friday night
bloody prints in your bedroom, I’ma try that knife
