2 – Gravediggaz – 6 Feet Deep (1994)

1383124

What do you get when you combine a group of super talented rappers probably completely high on weed with Wu-Tang Clan style production and an unhealthy obsession with horror films? You get one of the most sinister, menacing and probably dopest Hip Hop albums ever that’s what. In fact, I reckon Darth Vader could have played this to Luke Skywalker to convince him to join the Dark Side.

This album draws you into its shadowy world and will not let go. The theme of impending doom and horror throughout this album is such a refreshing contrast to some of the more clichéd Hip Hop out there. The aggressive rhymes tell morbid tales of death, the devil and ghoulish goings on with a strictly dark sense of humour. The production completely nails the eerie atmosphere and when combined with verses this good ensures almost every track is a classic.

So, give this a listen and indulge your dark side. Come now, we have cookies.
