Necro Reacts To Alleged Musical Link In 2009 Child Murder

After a defense team reportedly linked Necro's music as an influence in a 2009 murder, the rapper/producer speaks out, refuting any connection.

A MSN Canada article published yesterday (March 23) connected the music of Brooklyn, New York emcee/producer Necro with the 2009 London, Ontario murder of eight-year-old Victoria "Tori" Stafford. Investigators discovered guilty-pleading killer Terri-Lynne McClintic, girlfriend alleged accomplice of co-defendant Michael Thomas Rafferty, was a fan of Necro. McClintic had songs from the rapper on her iPod and had previously written letters, some mimicking "Garbage Bag," a 1994 recording found on Necro's Rare Demos & Freestyles, Volume 1 compilation.

According to the article, McClintic denied listening to the rapper in the hours leading up to the murder, however the defense council drove the issue of the possible influence of Necro's lyrics.

Yesterday, Necro released the following statement via email, disassociating with the violence, and refuting the defense's argument.

Writer's Note: The statement has been edited for spelling and format.

"I DO NOT SUPPORT THE KILLING OF KIDS. I LOVE CHILDREN AND FEEL THEY SHOULD BE PROTECTED AND LOVED AND CARED FOR, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE YOUR FAMILY. I'M AGAINST ANYTHING THAT BRINGS HARM TO CHILDREN. A LOT OF US GREW UP MESSED UP BECAUSE WE WERENT LOVED AS KIDS OR GOT SCREWED OVER.

AS FOR THIS CASE - EVERY FEW YEARS SOME LAYWER OR COURT OR NEWSPAPER TRIES TO BLAME SOME RAPPER OR METAL GROUP, BUT THATS CRAP, WHETHER OZZY [OSBOURNE], OR JUDAS PRIEST, OR [INSANE CLOWN POSSE], OR NOW NECRO. WE ALL HAVE 100,000 TO A MILLION FANS [OR MORE], AND NONE OF THEM DO THESE TYPES OF THINGS, SO YOU CANT BLAME THE ACTIONS OF ONE OR A FEW KIDS ON AN ARTIST.

AND IF YOU ARE GONNA ATTACK MUSICIANS THEN YOU GOTTA ATTACK MOVIES WHICH ARE MORE VISUAL
BUT YOU KNOW WHY NOONE ATTACKS MOVIES? BECAUSE ITS EASY TO ATTACK AN INDIE ARTIST OR STRUGGLING BAND, BUT ITS MUCH HARDER TO ATTACK ONE OF THE MAJOR MOVIE COMPANIES MAJOR RECORD LABELS WILL THROW THEIR ARTIST UNDER THE BUS AND DROP THEM IN A SECOND, BUT YOU CANT DROP A BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE AND MOVIES ARE USUALLY 5 TO 50 MILLION IN COST, BUT MUSICIANS USUALLY HAVE NO MORE THAN 100K TO A MILLION INVESTED SO WE GET ATTACKED FIRST ALWAYS AND MOVIES AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS LEFT ALONE NONSENSE.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BAD PARENTS AND HORRIBLE SCHOOL SYSTEMS AND GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD TEACH YOUR KIDS AND SHOW THEM LOVE IF ANYTHING IM MORE IN TOUCH WITH YOUR KIDS THAN THE PARENTS OR SCHOOLS ARE IN A POSITIVE WAY BECAUSE I TALK TO THE KIDS DAILY ONLINE, I RESPOND, AND YOU SEE ME MAKING POSITIVE MOVES IN LIFE REVOLVING AROUND ART, WETHER OR NOT THE ART IS VIOLENT OR NOT IS NOT THE POINT, ITS ART!

YOU CANT BLAME SOMEONE THAT CREATES VIOLENT MUSIC WHEN THE WORLD HAS BEEN VIOLENT SINCE IT STARTED, WAR AFTER WAR I JUST REFLECT THE REALITY IN MY MUSIC.

MY CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY FOR THEIR LOSS I DO NOT SUPPORT THAT ACT AND NEVER PROMOTE MY FANS TO DO THAT."

HipHopDX will keep you posted.

    Anon - I said he's "indirectly responsible", not directly, but of course you skipped past that. I think as artists get older they realize the impact their music had (good or bad)on people. Do you watch T2 then go blow up downtown Los Angeles? Of course not, it's a fantasy movie. But someone could listen to 2pac or Eminem, and based on their words, do something drastic because they felt they were talking to them specifically. The power of music is much greater because you get idiots out there listening to their favorite songs 100x times a day on their IPOD. They can recite every word Eminem says, yet watch a movie and not remember a thing about it the next day.

    The defense lawyer is just doing his job by trying to use Necros "music" as possible influence for this horrible murder. But shit...ignorance is widely spread in the hip-hop world. Some "fans" act a fool, but you cant blame that on the artists.

  • Ash

    Necro is one of the best rappers. He's making an album with Kool G, so what does that tell you about necro? He's ill

  • Anonymous

    Anybody with a brain knows that movies are nmake believe. Music is different in that it's often reflecting the thoughts of the artist. Granted, alot of it is done for shock purposes, but this Necro clown should feel pretty low to know that his crazy lyrics might have influenced somebody to murder someone. He isn't the parent of every fan out there, but if you know that your lyrics have the ability to screw with some people's heads and you keep doing it anyway, then indirectly you're responsible.

      "Music is different in that it's often reflecting the thoughts of the artist... so movies dont reflect the thoughts of an artist I guess... good to know.

    • Anonymous

      you sound so naive. if everybody knew that movies were make believe then there would be no need for warnings and pg/r ratings. the same way music has parental advisory stickers. key word being PARENTAL. do not underestimate human stupidity. you're insinuating that movie makers are void of responsibility for movies they bring to the screen but in the same breath you condemn musicians for 4 minute songs. its hypocritical. statistically you'll find more that more deaths can be attributed to movie influences than music. especially these days with these pseudo documentary movies. just last week i heard about kids throwing house crazy house parties and some ending up dead because of some movie called project x. its the parents responsibility to regulate what their children watch and listen to. artists are entitled to expression in any form... as long as they take proper precautions in warning you of the content. parents need to start being parents and stop expecting the world raise their children for them.

    Necro / Kool G Rap album dropping soon!

  • sun

    necro is one of the most misunderstood hip hop artists ever. some dudes think hes on some ICP shit and some dudes think hes on some raping and killing babies shit. neither. he just makes really dope beats and spits really intricate rhymes about all kinds of dark shit porn, drugs, death. album with kool g rap should wake a lot of people up, he's dope and he's been dope a really long time. i don't know how some of these kids can be into odd future and diss necro. necro makes hotter beats and better raps and been at it way longer. blaming musicians/movies for bad behavior is wack. blame the parents. kids with love at home usually don't go killing ppl for no good reason. stop looking for scapegoats. take care of your kids.

    • ruddocvk

      please lets not throw around the he's just "misunderstood" cliche it's such a copout. his music and video's of pressing guns against women's genitalia and making them his sex slaves speak for themselves.there's no deeper message to his music. i agree with everyone else he's not guilty for someone else's actions but he's a still scumbag

  • Anonymous

    Necro should just stick to beats, the one for Huzzah (the Mr Muthafuckin eXquire one) is tight.

  • The Don

    I AGREE WITH HIM,I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS STUPID EVER SINCE EMINEM HAD TO MAKE A PUBLIC STATEMENT ABOUT I THINK IT WAS THAT SONG"STAN" WHEN HE HAD TO TELL PEOPLE ITS JUST LYRICS..THE SONGS IS NOT REAL CAUSE HIS FANS WERE REALLY CUTTING THEMSELVES AND SHIT. I DONT KNOW IF ITS CAUSE IM A RAP ARTIST OR WHAT BUT I BELIEVE IF YOU LISTEN TO A SONG AND GET SO INFLUENCED BY A SONG THAT YOU GO OUTSIDE AND KILL A HUMAN BEING CAUSE THE SONG YOU ARE LISTENING TO IS TALKING ABOUT KILLLING SOMEONE,THEN ITS SOMETHING THATS WRONG WITH YOUR HEAD PERSONALLY CAUSE ANYBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD KILL SOMEBODY OR THEMSELVES JUST CAUSE A SONG IS TALKING ABOUT IT. YOU HAD TO HAVE HAD SUICIDAL THOUGHTS OR BE SUICIDAL TO KILL YOURSELF OVER LISTENING TO A SONG,YOU WONT FIND YOUR AVERAGE AMERICAN DOING SOMETHING LIKE THAT OR WHATEVER,PICTURE OUR PRESIDENT OF THE US ROBBING SOMEBODY CAUSE HE LISTENED TO A NOTORIOUS B.I.G SONG...IT WONT HAPPEND.

      I disagree completely. You are not responsible for what others do, but you can't say something and act like it holds no weight. If your song pushes someone to do something terrible the fact is that the person is in a vulnerable state and you are complicating things for them. It's easy to show gratitude if your song persuades someone to be positive though I would guess right? Man the fact is that music is influential from every angle and people are easily influenced. If you care about how your actions impact other people than it's something to think about, a lot of musicians deny it or are careless.

    • Jacc

      you said it best. Anybody with a brain know a song is just a song. If you kill a white guy while listening to Ice Cube, it's not because you are influenced by him, is because you're just a crazy ass muthafucka.

  • ThrillMurray

    Necro is a top 20 all time hip-hop producer IMO. He definitely can spit. He is an aquired taste however, and I can see how some fans will not like him right away. Listen to his Gory Days album, Circle of Tyrants, and understand he is a character. Dude is a niche rapper. I am a fan 4 sho though

  • SUPERCOVEN

    Some of Necro's beats are good but he can't spit real goon shit like Gore Elohim. Lord of Plagues is that ill shit. Youtube it.

    Jeffrey Dahmer use to carve bodies up while he listened to Beethoven, but they never stopped teaching his work in music schools, how do you account for that one?? Charles Manson thought he heard hidden messages in Beatles songs telling him to start a race war, should we take all there shit off Itunes?? Necro does what he does, it isnt like he's pulling some Eminem type shit, he doesnt shoot lil music videos with a Kids sing along chorus dancing around in the video dressed like Pee Wee Herman to trick parents into buying his violent albums, Necro is like the rap version of that metal band Slayer, he doesnt even try to get on the radio, he doesnt market his shit directly to children, I dont see anything wrong with the way he handles his shit If somebody is fucked enough to let a song influence them to something like that, then they already had problems to begin with, and would have went over the edge anyway at some point

    Guys Wack as a rapper but his beats are dope, I remember back when he Non Phixion & Q Unique on his label, alot of dope music came out on PLR Goretex - The Art Of Dying Sabac Red - Sabacalypse Now Ill Bill - Whats Wrong With Bill Q-Unique - Vengance Is Mine I'm pretty sure all of those were produced top to bottom by Necro and they were dope, he's got an album droppin with Kool G Rap, if only he would stay off the mic and just do the beats that could be a classic, as it is I'm just praying he wont ruin it completely Oh, and this story is bullshit, as big a cornball Necro is he isnt responsible for the actions of every kid with bad taste who listens to his music

    • Anonymous

      Gotta love the Non-Phixion solo LPs. "Sabacalypse Now" isn't that hard to obtain, but "Art Of Dying" and "What's Wrong With Bill?" are pretty rare. Glad to say I'm an owner of all three classic albums, along with the groups LP "The Future Is Now"

    i like the fact that every agrees he's not to blame but he is a piece of shit. if ever an article was "hater" free its this one

  • Anonymous

    Necro is raw. I understand cats not being able to appreciate Death Rap let alone understand it but then again that's why you probably listen to Gucci or Rick Ross every day. It might not be the hiphop genre you're into but regardless as an MC and a producer he holds his own. In fact he has an album coming out with Kool G Rap called The Godfathers. If you think Necro is garbage on the MIC then I guess you just missing out on some real hip-hop.

      Flow is important for an artists development but lyrics are more important to a real MC. That's why the games fucked up in my opinion. Everybody wants to be a rapper now and spit something but in reality their all making garbage music and delivering NO message at all. Sure Gucci can do shows and sell units but in 100 years when he's dead in reality he left nothing behind for hip-hop. These overplayed industry radio rappers flow about swag in their tight jeans and you call that hip-hop? Lyrics not important in hip hop any more? Look kid you can have your ringtone rappers with average flows. Secondly battle rappers don't care about moving units they do it for the love of the sport and can eat almost any MC up on the spot lyrically piece by piece. Anyone who knows real hip hop knows damn well these fools on TV are fake. For Gods sake Rick Ross works in prison as an officer. Wounder how he got that job? Plea bargain? Snitching? These industry cock suckers aint real to me. Go watch a Lil B video and beat off in your moms basement fag.

      Gucci fucking owns (well he did a few years ago) anyway you dweeby bitch. I'm so tired of these dudes acting like they're so high and mighty because they suck Aesop Rock's dick or some shit. Not every rapper has to be a lyrical miracle, flow is more important than lyrics. Most lyrical shit is corny as fuck, it's only when you have good flow then lyrical sit sounds good. This is why battle rappers release shit albums, see: Soul Kahn and Dizaster, also none of the big battle rappers have any relevance in hip-hop. People looking down on Gucci and Rick Ross are fucking wastemen with shitty taste, probably some emo white kids, it's some hipster shit like "oh I knew about this dude BEFORE he was big" they're just pissed because they could never say that about Ricky, dude's always been fat as shit.

      Yea Yea you probably love listening to Lil Wayne and Gucci all day. If you love underground hiphop you would still respect Necro even if you didn't get into the music. It's true a lot of people out there are brainwashed by the music industry's bull shit they put out and if you ask them about an underground artist they wouldn't know jack shit. People are missing out.

      Shut the fuck up dude, I hate these standard underground Douche bag remarks "Oh, well if you dont like (Insert underground rappers name here) then you must like Gucci Mane or Lil Wayne" Maybe its possible to love underground rap and just find this guy annoying, crazier things have happened, stop generalizing

  • AZDarkblade

    This guy has a lot of nerve invoking Ozzy in comparison to lyrics. Musicians today go WAY TOO FAR with freedom. We need to realize the word DOES affect peoples actions, especially mentally ill / sick ones. Lets talk about dead body disposal My proposal take the corpse to the bathtub And drain the blood out of the bastard Strip yourself naked first so you don't get blood on your new shirt And cut the corpse up like a butcher to meat kid And put the pieces inside trash bags So she'll be wreaking like a fags ass With flesh covered in leeches And throw the bags away In various trash bins in different areas This shit's hilarious Nobody notices some asshole taking out the garbage Who would know it's a carcass? Even if they were focusing 'cause the plastic bag is dark kid And even the nosy bitch wouldn't open it, it make no sense And if you do it just before a trash pick up The bodies hauled away before it decays and stinks up It won't be noticed, with literally tons of ther shit And ya bag is in the middle buried right under it Especially if you double-bagged it Ya victim'll stay a faggot in fragments forever stagnet Bodies begin to stink within an hour of death And if it's warm outside then it's quicker for the sour stench to leak out the flesh So think about the steps You taking killing and be willing to consider the best Be extra careful and grab an aerosol can of pepper spray to coat the pieces the smell is unbearable Hold the first layer of bag beautifully that'll keep animals from tearing open the bag to get to the meat Squirrels, dogs, and birds Officers with dogs that smell won't find shit when they thrown off the scent You could hang a fuck upside down in ya tub And slit his throat from ear to ear to remove a large amount of blood Most of it'll gush out on its own at once But to get the last couple of pints drained work his arms like pumps For dismemberment gentlemen I recommend heavy duty bone saws that cut through gendleums like pendulums But if you want to take your time don't rush it either cut each piece off like Pizza Hut pizza with a rusty cleaver Then put each piece up in a freezer Take out the trash in a couple of days the stench of decomposition's meager And make sure there's no incriminating papers in the bag Letters, receipts, anything with ya name they'll trace ya

He's just another corny horrorcore rapper with a cult fanbase like ICP, I dont care if he's been around for 100 years he aint no legend, cool out wit that bullshit

    I cant stand this douche or his horrible music, but he's right in this instance. every 5 or 10 years along comes some crybaby lawyer or politician to blame music for the worlds problems People 50 years ago tried to get the Beatles banned from the country, half-century later there viewed as the best act ever in music Tell that lawyer to sit the fuck down and find a real motive
