Mannibalector is the ninth studio album by American rapper Brotha Lynch Hung. It was released on February 5, 2013, by Strange Music.[1] It serves as the third and final installment of this "Coathanga Strangla" trilogies, following these albums; including Dinner and a Movie (2010) and Coathanga Strangla (2011). The album features guest appearances from Wrekonize, Bernz, Yelawolf, COS, Irv Da Phenom, Trizz, Bleezo, G-Macc, Tech N9ne and Hopsin.[2][3]

Background[edit]

Brotha Lynch Hung has been working with an record producer Seven for “over a year”[4] producing his new album, called Mannibalector. Seven said, “Lynch’s mind works differently”, his way of “constructing songs”[5] is different than others. Also that Hung will “have the whole album structure: song titles and everything before we’ve made any of the songs. It’s interesting and different to get to work that way with an artist”.[6] Another aspect that was difficult for Hung was to find features that fit into the storyline. Hung picked Yelawolf and Hopsin as they “fit in with their perspective that they had to follow through on”. Hung never rejected a beat from Seven “because everything just matched”[7]

Lyrics and production[edit]

In an interview with Strange Music, Hung said his “lyrical ability was limited because I had to more so tell stories than mostly worry about lyrics”.[8] The album is about an era of his life that’s been ended. With Fearnet, Hung discusses about how the character within the album became this serial killer. Hung said “he's lost and friendless at that point, and like I said a lot of that comes from my own life, when I've let a lot of people go and went my way alone”,[9] adding to that Hung “used Mannibalector to get out some of those feelings”[10] from his past.

AllMusic 4/5 stars[11]
HipHopDX 4/5 stars[12]

Mannibalector received generally positive reviews from music critics. In a positive review AllMusic's David Jeffries writes "Hung is a craftsman, kicking off this horror movie on wax with a TV news report that gives up the back-story and then goes full Hollywood, joining skits, numerous sound effects, and a relentless, blockbuster pace, all making this an album worth avoiding if it's dark." Roman Cooper of HipHopDX noted "Make no mistake, BLH’s emceeing arsenal is still quite impressive. Whether it’s the rapid-fire flows over the frenetic and disturbing strings of “Krocadil” or steady delivery over extremely minimalist production on “MDK,” Lynch is unquestionably adept at his craft."

Commercial performance[edit]

Mannibalector debuted at number 67 on the US Billboard 200, at number 8 on the Top Rap Albums and at number 13 on the Top Independent Albums charts, with first-week sales of 8,000 copies in the United States.[13]
