"Six Feet Deep"
Artist: Geto Boys
Producers: N.O. Joe
Release Year: 1993
Song Sampled: "What's Going On"
Sample Release Year: 1971
Sample Effect: The introduction interpolates Marvin's lyric "There's far too many of you dyin'" and frames the narrative.
Why The Song Is Dope: The crux of the song relies on The Commodores' "Easy," giving off a bittersweet vibe from the jump, and the lyrical theme backs up the musical feel. One of those times the Geto Boys took a step back to observe what was around them while stuck in the eye of the hurricane, and delivered a heartfelt plea to their peers. —DR
