Death Rap is the fifth studio album by American rapper Necro, released on September 11, 2007 by Psycho+Logical-Records through Koch Distribution. It was the first studio album Necro released since signing with Koch in July 2007. As the title suggests, the album is Necro's return to emphasis on gore and violence, rather than sex, such as in his 2005 album The Sexorcist. Pre-orders of the album were shipped with a limited edition bonus DVD that contained an unreleased music video and six live performances. Like his last album, Necro chose not to place a parental advisory sticker on the cover.
Featured guest vocalists on the album include Adam Flanagan, formerly of the Cro-Mags, Brian Fair of Shadows Fall, Adam Jackson of Twelve Tribes, Mr. Hyde, Necro's brother Ill Bill and Ray Alder of Fates Warning. Featured guest instrumentalists on the album include Mark Morton of Lamb of God, Mike Smith of Suffocation, Steve DiGiorgio, formerly of Death, Scott Ian of Anthrax and Dave Ellefson of Megadeth.
On July 15, 2007, SMNnews.com posted that the album would be released on September 11, 2007 and is called Death Rap. They also announced the track listing.
On July 20, 2007, Necro revealed on his official forum that he planned on releasing "Suffocated to Death by God's Shadow", a track from the album, on iTunes before the album was released. This ultimately did not happen.
