|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?”
Fav Trax: Constant Elevation, Nowhere To Run To
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.)
Extra (street) Cred: Japanese horrorpunk’s Balzac – Beyond the Darkness
