  1. Morbid

    "Morbid" is a song by American rapper Necro, released in 2001. It was the second and final single from his second album, Gory Days, released that year. Its content involves the perspective of a homicidal man who is prepared to trace any potential person who engages in a feud with him, so much as they are advised to change their name, sex and body frame, and travel by plane to a remote location in order to uncertainly ensure their safety.
