Brotha Lynch Hung (real name: Kevin Mann, 1969-), a Sacramento-based {{Horrorcore}} pioneer, goes far beyond normal GangstaRap tropes. He raps about [[EatsBabies eating babies]], [[IAmAHumanitarian cannibalism]] and serial killers. He laces his raps with themes that are intermediately gritty, street-level and realistic, and over-the-top cartoonish, [[CrossesTheLineTwice fucked-up]] and grotesque.

BLH is signed to Music/TechN9ne's Strange Music label, but his career is much longer than that. His career began in 1986, and he released his CultClassic ''Season of the Siccness'', in 1992. He got some HipHop clout via association with Music/MasterP, who featured Lynch on the soundtrack to the No Limit movie ''I'm Bout It''.

In 2000, BLH made a [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror comedy horror]] movie called ''Now Eat'', which received mixed responses from fans and generally negative reviews elsewhere. Most reviews criticized it for its low budget and poor production values, while fans saw it as either having SoBadItsGood entertainment value or being disappointing, in contrast to the detailed, nuanced storytelling for which his raps are known.

* AxCrazy, JerkAss (UpToEleven), KarmaHoudini, SerialKiller, TheSociopath and VillainProtagonist: These are some of the interpretations that Brotha Lynch Hung takes himself in each song.
* BlackComedy / DeadBabyComedy: His occasional sense of humor in his songs comes sometimes to be macabre.
* EatsBabies: One of his most popular songs is "[[ Return of da Baby Killa]]".
* GangstaRap: Lynch takes this style UpToEleven, especially in his first days.
* {{Gorn}}: Repeatedly.
* {{Horrorcore}}
* HorrorHunger: Occurs in his movie ''Now Eat'', in which a witch places a curse on Lynch. This curse forces him to eat everything he kills, causing him to turn into a "humanitarian" because of his multiple gang slayings.
* IAmAHumanitarian: A recurring theme.
* LighterAndSofter: More specifically on the album "The New Season" with MCEiht. However, he returned to the DarkerAndEdgier status with the release of the album "Snuff Tapes".
* MohsScaleOfLyricalHardness: 11, all the way.
* MurderBallad: It'd be easier to list the songs he writes that don't fall under this trope.
