Snuff stuff, deadly and erotic

from El-P (Ft. Nick Diamonds) – Stay Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Snuff stuff” is likely a reference to snuff films, which are videos of actual murders, made for money.

The second part relates to the genre known as torture porn (torture= “deadly” ; porn= “erotic”). It includes the Hostel and Saw series.

It is a realization that with the sadism, bondage and gore that is prevalent in these (sometimes awesome) films, even death has become sexualized.

It’s El-P’s dystopic vision of the future, and it’s happening now!

We on some Thanos shiiit.
