Big Lurch of Cosmic Slop Shop (on Fox News)

Antron Singleton (born September 15, 1976),
better known by his stage name Big Lurch,
is an American rapper.
He is serving a life sentence for murdering
21-year-old female acquaintance Tynisha Ysais
and eating parts of her body in April 2002.

During his music career,
Singleton worked with such Bay Area rappers as
Luni Coleone, Too Short, Mac Dre, RBL Posse, C-Bo,
E-40, Keak Da Sneak, Yukmouth, E-A-Ski
and New Orleans-based rapper Mystikal, TQ,
DJ U-Neek, Texas' Lil Keke, and Big Bone.
He was also a member of the group Cosmic Slop Shop
along with fellow members Doonie Baby and Rick Rock.

Early life

Born in Fort Worth, Texas,
Singleton grew up nearby in east Dallas, Texas.
He decided to pursue a career in rapping,
and began performing in 1990.

Murder and lawsuit

On April 10, 2002, 25-year-old Singleton murdered
Tynisha Ysais in her Los Angeles, California, apartment.
Her boyfriend Thomas Moore testified that
he and Singleton spent the evening
prior to the murder smoking PCP.

The victim was found in her
apartment by her friend Alisa Allen.
Her chest had been torn open and a three-inch
blade was found broken off in her shoulder blade.
Tooth marks were found on her face and on her lungs,
which had been torn from her chest.
Eyewitnesses reported that when
Singleton was picked up by police,
he was naked, covered in blood, standing in
the middle of the street and staring at the sky.
A medical examination performed shortly
after his capture found human flesh in
his stomach which was not his own.

On November 7, 2003,
Singleton was sentenced to life in prison.
He had been convicted of murder
and aggravated mayhem the previous June
after pleading not guilty by reason of insanity
at the time of the murder.
The court ruled that his intoxication
and plea of insanity were not satisfactory
reasons for committing the crime.

In 2004, Stress Free Ent. and Black Market Records
released a solo LP on behalf of Singleton, It's All Bad.
Features included Killa Tay, C-Bo, Lil Keke, Roger Troutman II and Too $hort.

Ysais' mother, Carolyn Stinson,
filed a wrongful death lawsuit against
Black Market Records, Singleton's record label.
The label, in similar fashion, has put out albums for
X-Raided while he was awaiting trial and eventually
convicted of murder (Xorcist, Unforgiven, Vol. 1, etc.).
The suit charged that the label had provided
Singleton with drugs
"to encourage [him] to act out in an extreme
violent manner so as to make him more
marketable as a 'gangster rap' artist."

"Part of what makes a Gangster Rap artist
marketable is the fact that the artist is
a current ongoing participant in violent gang activities," the lawsuit said.

He is currently serving his life sentence at
California State Prison, Los Angeles County in Lancaster, California.
He spent the last 4 years of the 5 years
he's already served in solitary confinement.
He was recently transferred to California State Prison, Sacramento (SAC)
