Sample This Rza! Now, That’s What I Call Music
The opening music from Tales from the Darkside
The show itself, an mid-1980s-aired anthology of mostly hokey scare stories, holds up worse than Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, but the sounds of its main title sequence still give me the willies. If DJ Paul and Juicy J knew what was good for them, they’d hop on this and bring it back to Three 6 Mafia’s darker-sounding days. Here’s one for all those who, like me, miss that good ol’ horrorcore.
Bernard Herrmann’s dizzying “Outer Space” from 1951’s The Day the Earth Stood Still
I just realized that I preceded these songs by saying I’d keep my writing “short and sweet”—my apologies. Let’s get to the bottom line. Upload the first 20 seconds of this amazing score onto the hard-drive of Nipsey Hussle’s laptop and let him present it to the Cali-based producer of his choice. Get a guest verse from Game, and you’d have some immensely gangster s—t, my friends.
