-HISTORY-
From Wikipedia.

The stylistic origins of horrorcore can be traced to a number of artists in the early 1990s. Geto Boys' fourth album, We Can't Be Stopped (1991), has an album cover that depicts a suicide attempt and includes the song "Chuckie", based on the character Chucky from the horror film Child's Play. Ganksta Nips debut album, The South Park Psycho (1992), includes the song "Horror Movie Rap" which samples the soundtrack from the 1978 film Halloween. Big L's debut single "Devil's Son" (1995) is considered horrorcore. The group Insane Poetry, on their debut Grim Reality (1992), and Esham, with Boomin' Words from Hell (1989), both incorporated horror imagery with their lyrics.

Kool Keith claims to have "invented horrorcore". While there is much debate over who first coined the term, it's use did not gain prominence until 1994, with the release of Flatlinerz' U.S.A. (Under Satan's Authority) and Gravediggaz' Niggamortis (released in the U.S. as 6 Feet Deep).

While the genre as a whole is not popular with mainstream audiences, performers such as Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid and Esham have sold well. The genre has thrived in Internet culture and sustains an annual "supershow" in Detroit called "Wickedstock". According to the January 2004 BBC documentary Underground USA, the subgenre "has a massive following across the US" and "is spreading to Europe". New York Magazine put horrorcore in the spotlight by listing off the ten most horrifying horrorcore rappers.

Spin asked Violent J of Insane Clown Posse to list off his favorite horrorcore songs. Songs included, The Dayton Family's "What's On My Mind", Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's "Mr. Ouija", and Necro's "Billie Jean 2005".

According to rapper Mars, "If you take Stephen King or Wes Craven and you throw them on a rap beat, that's who I am."

DEATH RAP, PSYCHO RAP, WICKED SHIT, HORROR RAP, GHETTO METAL, HORRORCORE and ACID RAP


Death and violence is everywhere. Doesn't matter where you're from. North to south, east to west. Some people fear it because they don't know anything about it.
To some, it's a part of life.
To some, it's art.
To some, it's reality.
To some, it's just nothing at all.
