Top 10 Hip-Hop Songs for Halloween

Happy Halloween peoples!

I love Halloween, not because I dress up in a costume or anything remotely festive like that, but just the whole energy of the holiday. It’s real dope. Got me thinking about some great horror-themed hip-hop songs. So without further ado, here we go, my top 10 hip-hop songs for Halloween.

10- Dr. Dre- “Murder Ink”- samples the theme from Halloween, a no-brainer.

9- Flatlinerz- “Live Evil”- group contained Russell Simmons nephew. Yoga vs. death rap? You be the judge.

8- Sunz Of Man- “Soldiers of Darkness”- “Gee, I’m sheisty, now I see why nobody likes me!”

7- Ras Kass- “Interview With A Vampire”- Ras Kass proves once again that he’s otherworldly as a writer. Perhaps he should have penned the F’ing movie! I just watched it the other day for the first time, and that sh*t sucked

6- Cam’Ron- “Death”- Cam has his own Ingmar Bergman moment and converses with the angel of death, and admits to humping a chick with AIDS. Wow.

5- Ice T- “The Tower”- Before Ice T was beefing with Soulja Boy and being paid attention to because he had a wife with tig ol’ bitties, he was actually a rapper. The Halloween theme gets used here too, and Ice talks about life behind the walls. Scary indeed.

4- Mobb Deep ft. Raekwon- “Nighttime Vultures”- I don’t even have any words for this track. This joint is just ridiculous, back when Mobb Deep was actually, like, good.

3- Three 6 Mafia- “Fuckin Wit Dis Click”- Is it a definitive Three 6 Mafia horrorcore song? Kinda creepy for sure. Where’s my cup?

2- Eminem and Royce da 5’9- “Scary Movies”- I’ve been trying to find a reason to post this song since I started writing this blog. This is the best Eminem song ever. This was the song that made me pay attention to Eminem. It was an instant WTF? moment when I heard it in the late 90s.

1- Gravediggaz- “1-800 Suicide”- R.I.P. Poetic… this guy was sooooo incredible as a rapper. “Hey you little rich kid, what’s your beef?/Come and tell the Grim Reaper all of your grief.” This dude actually sounded like a ghoul or ghost. You gotta love it.

Think my list sucks? What’s your top 10?

  • MewLover34

    How did ICP not make the list? And how has only one person mentioned them? They have over 15 actual Halloween songs and most of them are bangers. You could fill the whole list with them. #1 – Mr. Rotten Treats

    • Anonymous

      WOWWWW MewLover34 son you need to get the fuck outta here. ICP songs, like the white trash members, are fucking garbage. Fucking faggots wearing makeup and shit. The fucking pokemon name in your username just shows you a young ass dumb motherfucker.

      • MewLover34

        Why are you replying to a two year old post? And seriously, if you’ve been listening to ICP for like 15 years you can’t really be a “young ass dumb motherfucker”
