Ron Raphael Braunstein, (Born June 7, 1976), better known as Necro, is an American emcee, record producer, business owner, actor, and director from Brooklyn, New York. Necro is known in the hip hop community for his exceptionally explicit lyrics. He rhymes about killing people in torturous ways, kidnapping women, narcotics and devil worshipping. Growing up Necro hustled, robbed, and dealt drugs in order to survive. "I have robbed people with guns before. Young thugs in Brooklyn. All we did was scheme." Necro says. Throughout his unique and treacherous evolution, Necro was unfairly compared to Eminem. An emcee with a dark side, Eminem rhymes about killing his wife, while on the other hand, Necro has albums and albums that push homicidal psychosis over the limit. Necro is regarded as the innovator of death-rap.
