Career

Necro was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in the Glenwood Houses where he lived for eight years from about 6 years old to age 14, when he moved to Canarsie. Born into a Jewish family, he is the son of two Israeli expatriates with ancestry from Israel and Romania. Necro’s father was a Romanian born Israeli soldier and his mother an Orthodox baal teshuva.

He began his musical career at 11, playing in a death/thrash band named Injustice. He made a transition from heavy metal to hip hop. In 1988, he started rapping after being influenced by his older brother, rapper Ill Bill. Necro derived his stage-name from the Slayer song “Necrophobic”. Before that he called himself “Mad Mooney”, which was a character from a Clive Barker book. He made his first demo in about 1990 and won a demo battle contest on the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show on WKCR-FM. In about 1993 Necro started rapping full-time and made a demo called “Do The Charles Manson”. In 1995 he proceeded to rap on the Wildman Steve and DJ Riz show WBAU 90.3 FM.

Necro founded the independent record label Psycho+Logical-Records in November 1999. In 15 years, Psycho+Logical-Records has released over 40+ albums all available digitally online on over 300+ outlets & physically in stores on CD & vinyl.
