AllMusic Review by

After the Geto Boys, it seemed that rap couldn't get any more extreme or hardcore. But in 1994, Season of da Siccness proved that in fact it could. Thriving on shock value and outrageousness, Brotha Lynch Hung is to rap what grindcore bands like Cannibal Corpse and Carcass are to metal. On this very twisted CD, the obscure and underground Sacramento MC calls himself "the Ripgut Cannibal" and portrays a psycho who's part Jeffrey Dahmer, part Hannibal Lecter, and part ghetto gang-banger. Lynch's accounts of cannibalism and dismemberment must be taken for exactly what they are: outrageous entertainment, pure and simple. Obviously, Siccness isn't for everyone. But those interested in the hip-hop equivalent of a slasher movie may find Lynch (whose rapid-fire delivery brings to mind Spice 1) quite entertaining.
