Seth Surmises – 6 Feet Deep

Gravediggaz – 6 Feet Deep

Preconceptions: I hear they are like the Geto Boys made of East Coast 90s rap superstars. “Horrorcore” rap interests the sci-fi nerd in me.

After Listening: Oh, I get it. It’s “What if ICP wasn’t stupid and talentless?”

Overall: 6 Feet Deep is a cartoonish take on violence that is refreshing considering the late 80’s/early 90’s West Coast uber-earnest celebration of the same themes. Musically, it’s not surprising that WTC comes to mind as it’s RZA deleting all the kung-fu movies from his Netflix in favor of low budget slasher flicks.

Rating: 3.99 (Better than most hip-hop recorded after the genre started making money.)
