Gravediggaz – “6 Feet Deep” review

The Gravediggaz were a horrorcore supergroup originally composed of Wu-Tang Clan de facto leader RZA, former Stetsasonic members Prince Paul & Frukwan as well as Poetic & this is their full-length debut. While they weren’t the 1st to do horrorcore, I personally believe they REALLY popularized the subgenre with this album. The deliveries, flows & lyrical content are purely ominous while the production (mainly handled by Prince Paul) has a perfectly sinister atmosphere throughout. Examples of this include “Constant Elevation”, “Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide”, “1-800-Suicide”, the Killah Priest/Scientific Shabazz featured “Diary of a Madman”, the short but self explained “Mommy, What’s a Gravedigga?” & the title track which was actually one of the only 3 tracks on the album to be produced by RZA. If anyone is looking to get into the horrorcore subgenre, then this HAS to be the go-to album for you because this is how it should be made

Score: 5/5
