Big Lurch - "I Did It To You!"
"I'll make you play tug of war with barb wire
Put salt on your wounds, gas on your clothes, and start a fire
Let it burn for two minutes and put it out
Take the puss out your wounds and put that shit up in your mouth"
Most rappers pen violent lyrics as part of a fictional narrative - usually to reinforce their machismo - but some actually speak from personal experience. Enter Big Lurch, a Texas emcee who, back in 2002, murdered a 21 year-old woman in Los Angeles. To make matters worse, the victim's chest was split open and pieces of her lungs were found in Lurch's stomach. He is currently serving a life sentence, a far cry from his burgeoning 90's rap career that included collaborations with E-40, Too $hort and Mac Dre.
