Jeffrey Dahmer is Rap's Favorite Serial Killer

Jeffrey Dahmer in Rap Music
Katy Perry's latest release, "Dark Horse," contained several surprises. First there was the trap beat, something of a surprise coming from Perry. Then there was Juicy J's reference to Jeffrey Dahmer in his verse of the song. Perry's song isn't the first time a song has name-dropped the man who raped, killed, dismembered and ate at least 17 men and boys over a 13 year period. Ke$ha caught some flack with the release of "Cannibal" for a similar reference to Dahmer. These references aren't isolated cases, in fact, name-checking one of America's most notorious serial killers is downright commonplace.

Here is just a sample of the dozens of songs which have evoked the name of the Milwaukee Cannibal.

"Dark Horse" Katy Perry (feat. Juicy J)

"She's a beast / I call her karma / She'll eat your heart out / Like Jeffrey Dahmer"

"Cannibal" Ke$ha

"Whenever you tell me I'm pretty / That's when the hunger really hits me / Your little heart goes pitter patter / I want your liver on a platter / Use your finger to stir my tea / And for dessert I'll suck your teeth / Be too sweet and you'll be a goner / Yep, I'll pull a Jeffrey Dahmer"

"Eat You Alive" Lil Wayne (feat. Ludacris)

"Let me out my cage, I'll eat these beats / I'm hip hop's Jeffrey Dahmer"

"The Cypher" Chris Brown, Tyga, Kevin McCall and Ace Hood

"Killing for survival / Jeffrey Dahmer, I'mma slaughter every beat that I'm on"

"You're Gonna Love This" 3OH!3 

"Yeah I don't know what's happening / And I swear to your honor that in my car that girl was biting on my lips like Jeffrey Dahmer"

"Must Be the Ganja" Eminem

"Faced with a dilemma, I can be a Dalai Lama and be calmer / Bring drama, I step beyond a Jeffrey Dahmer"

"Things Get Worse" Eminem (feat. B.o.B)

"They can't even get Jeffrey Dahmer to pet the cougar"

"Fubba U Cubba Cubba" Eminem

"You think I'm the new Osama, press thinks I'm the new Madonna / Jeffrey Dahmer left me with his legacy to carry on"

"Black Friday" Lil Kim

"I smell a massacre / I'm Charles Manson, you don't stand a chance with her / Jeffrey Dahmer and you lookin' like lunch to me / 'Bout to kill all you bitches like Ted Bundy"

 "Clique/Fuckin' Problem" Tyga

"Told my girl, Jeffrey Dahmer, and eat her out"

"Pretty Boy Swag (Remix)" Tyga

"Eat your heart out bitch, I'm Jeffrey / Dahmer, Damier my luggage"

"Natural Born Killaz" Dr. Dre (feat. Ice Cube)

"So I'mma pull a fucking Jeffrey Dahmer / Now I'm suicidal, just like Nirvana"

"Gingerbread Man" Gucci Mane

"Eat rappers like Jeffrey Dahmer / Dope color Sinead O'Connor"

"Dancin' Dirty" Ludacris (feat. Chris Brown)

"She nasty with a nice persona, she bitin' me like piranha / The modern day Jeffrey Dahmer, she must get it from her mama"

"I'm On It" J. Cole

"Don't fight the feeling mama / Not Jeffrey Dahmer, but your body is a killer mama"

"Body Parts" Three 6 Mafia

"Could it be another Jeffrey Dahmer / I'm sneakin' / And creepin' / And blowin' up shit like the Unabomber"

"Electric City" Black Eyed Peas

"La dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee, la dee dah / Killer on the loose, like I'm Jeffrey Dahmer"

"Benz or Beemer" OutKast

"My gat is in my lap, so what you wanna be startin' now? / I'm pissin' up on Jeffrey's Dahmer grave, that cracker was foul"

Leave it to OutKast to always speak the truth.

    So this is funny? Or is it "cute"? Meanwhile Beyonce catching hell for "eat the cake Anna Mae"? Just gotta love society and all of its faux soapboxes.
