South Park Psycho
(1992)

Fear Factor: This Houston rap pioneer and South Park Coalition member took the dark side of the Geto Boys’ personas to the next level, leaving no sick stone unturned on his Rap-A-Lot Records debut.
Killer Cut: “Horror Movie Rap”

31brothalynch.jpgBrotha Lynch Hung
Season of da Siccness
(1995)

Killer Cut: “Return of Da Baby Killa”

31gravediggaz.jpgGravediggaz
6 Feet Deep
(1994)

Fear Factor: On this album, which was originally titled Niggamortis, Prince Paul, RZA, Too Poetic and Frukwan teamed up to vent their frustrations in a dark mix of violent, black humor and Five Percent Nation ideology.
Killer Cut: “Diary of a Madman”

31crustified.jpgCrustified Dibbs
Night of The Bloody Apes
(1992)

Fear Factor: This Jive Records debut by R.A. the Rugged Man was so raw that it never saw the light of day. While it’s most famous for the Biggie duet “Cunt Renaissance,” the album is chock full of homicidal wordplay and Kool G Rap-like rapid-fire flow.
Killer Cut: “Bloody Axe”

31flatlinerz.jpgFlatlinerz
U.S.A. (Under Satan’s Authority)
(1994)

Fear Factor: This group, headed by Russell Simmons’ nephew Red Rum, was perhaps the first to coin the term “horrorcore.” Their Def Jam debut expanded on Onyx’s hardcore sound with horrifyingly mixed results.
Killer Cut: “Live Evil”

31esham.jpgEsham
Boomin’ Words From Hell (1990)

Fear Factor: While still in high school, Detroit rap pioneer Esham created a new genre he dubbed “acid rap” with his debut album, delving into suicide, insanity and death like no rapper before.
Killer Cut: “Red Rum”

31cage.jpgCage
Movies For The Blind
(2002)

Fear Factor: Institutionalized in an insane asylum as a teenager, this New York-based underground MC briefly beefed with Eminem, both laying claim to the “crazy white boy” persona.
Killer Cut: “Agent Orange”

31three6.jpgThree 6 Mafia
Mystic Stylez
(1995)

Fear Factor: Before they were winning statues and partying with Paris Hilton, the Triple Six Mafia sprinkled their spooky sounds with references to the occult and Satanism on their official debut album.
Killer Cut: “Mystic Stylez”

31d12.jpgD12
Devil’s Night
(2001)

Fear Factor: Marshall and the gang’s debut may have attained pop success and a platinum plaque, but it’s psychotic lyrics are still inappropriate for all ages. The title, Devil’s Night, refers to the night before Halloween.
Kilelr Cut: “American Psycho”

31getoboys.jpgGeto Boys
We Can’t Be Stopped
(1991)

Fear Factor: Scarface, Willie D and Bushwick Bill’s fourth album took on everything from politics to awards shows, but most endearing is the #1 single “Mind Playing Tricks On Me,” which explored the dark side of the brain like no rap song before it. The gruesome album cover features Bushwick Bill being wheeled out of the hospital after a his eye was shot out.
Killer Cut: “Mind’s Playing Tricks On Me”

  • Babyboy

    shitee blog

  • Fernando

    They should have had Brotha Lynch “Loaded” on this list too. Not only are his albums scary, but he can spit too.

    FYI – Brotha Lynch’s “cousin” Sicx & his wife were given 200 years each for raping, kidnapping, & molesting kids in their neighborhood & their own daughter…nasty mothafu*ka!

  • Fernando

    How could they leave off DRS??? They had a song called “Siccness” where they talk about Necrophelia

  • BowWowNumba1Fan

    that cage track is crazy with the scratched in chorus, definitely a fucked up disc from beginning to end

  • Big Chops

    This was a very pointless coloum.
    By the way, H-A H-A H-A!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Enlightened

    Peep 3-6 Mafia-
    For everybody that heard anything about the original TRIPLE SIX MAFIA-
    you get a taste right here in the raw form when they were young as hell in ’95.
    You get members like PLAYA FLY that raps first that they want you to forget about. To most niggas on the streets of Memphis he is the G.O.A.T. in Memphis rap. You hear Lord Infamous when he used to rap fast and was a beast. You hear Lil’ Chat right after Gangsta Boo before she moved away and had the leave the group (when she came back people thought she “replaced” Gangsta Boo but that wasn’t it.)
    This is old classic shit. If y’all can track down that whole album – Mystic Stylez – you’ll hear some shit.

  • G

    nice! for puttin geto boys in the column

  • Enlightened

    @ FERNANDO -
    They wouldn’t put Loaded because if you remember that’s when he toned the horror shit down for that album trying to spread his shit out a little and he came up with his best selling album because of it.
    He said he did SEASON OF DA SICKNESS drunk as hell the whole time and he said he did LOADED high as hell the whole time. You can tell cause Loaded was more laid back and chill. SEASON was some true twisted, horrorcore sick shit at it’s finest.

  • CKilla
