Michael Myers Music

Now, being an Australian October 31st has little signficiance for me. Sure, everyone down here knows it's Halloween but most years it's a non event, aside from a few kids who might find it a good excuse trying to score some free candy. So with that said I kind of feel stupid even doing a post on the subject, but oh well, I've decided to post five tracks that sample the classic Halloween theme, composed by John Carpenter. I know there's a few others out there (a Dre track, a Biggie track and an intro by the Hard Boys for example), but five's a good number.

Ganksta Nip - Horror Movie Rap
Ice T - The Tower
Tech N9ne - Psycho Bitch

Three 6 Mafia - Lolli Lolli (Pop That Body)

Twisted Black Ft BG - Tru Hustla [Remix]

Slaine - The Devil Never Dies

The Devil Never Dies

“I spent thousands of hours creating ‘A World With No Skies’. I want it to be a vivid picture of my dreams, nightmares, and psyche. I refuse to compromise my vision for a project that means so much to me,” commented Slaine.

“I have recently had some success in a way that unexpectedly put a mainstream light on me. I could give a fuck less about that kind of attention. What I do give a fuck about is maintaining the integrity of my album, so I have had to deal with sample clearance issues which caused it to be delayed until early 2011. In the meantime while I rework the album, I am giving you my new mixtape ‘The Devil Never Dies’ for free.

At the end of the day fans dont give a shit about red tape nor should they, and I wanted to put out new music now. I locked myself in my studio for two weeks and this is what I came out with.”

Tech N9ne - Seepage [EP]

The one with the name of a gun is back with another EP release to hold his fans over until his next full length, All 6s And 7s, drops early in 2011. For those of you who keep checking Tech's releases, you'll remember that on the Lost Scripts of K.O.D. EP there was a track called Last Sad Song on which he said that track would be exactly that, his last sad song. He kept with that on the Ollie Gates Collabos album, however, sadly, Tech tweeted recently that his mother's health had deteriorated again, and Krizz Kaliko's best friend had passed away. As a result of these two events, Tech decided to go back into the studio and drop another EP of dark rhymes: Seepage.

On one of the deepest tracks Tech has ever recorded ,
The Rain, he says: 'They love my pain because it makes for great music'. So with this in mind I can't help but feel guilty for admitting that it's Tech N9ne's darker music that I really want to hear. As a fan of Tech N9ne I wish for nothing but the best for Aaron Yates the person, even if it results in more let down releases in the future (which is how I felt about Ollie Gates). But, to be honest as someone who finds shelter in the lyrics of my favourite emcees - Tech above most others- it's his most painful music that makes me (and many others) rate him so highly. People don't love seeing Tech in pain, but they do love the dark music it spawns because no matter the listener's age/race/religion or gender - they can relate to him.

As with all EPs, the downside with it is how short it is - but in terms of quality, Tecca Nina's still going as strong as ever. I've already put my pre-order in for a hard copy, and if you're even remotely into Tech, then I suggest ordering it off his site asap because it's a bargain at $6.99 and I can't see too many copies being pressed.

Them Rappers Sounding Like...


Yep, this kid's face says it all - this blog's dead and in much need of a re-animation that Lucio Fulci or George Romero would be proud of. Now, I'm not going to even let myself believe this blog will ever be updated as much as it used to. I doubt I'll even manage to double the 'one post a month' rule I set myself, but hey - while I've got some sort of motivation about me I thought I'd update the look of this page.

Here are 5 tracks I've had on my playlist while going through old posts and deleting all of the spam comments that have been building up over the past year or two. Been pumping Trae, Nickatina and Tecca Nina for ages. Yelawolf I only got onto in the past year or so, but I've caught up on his back catalogue and now I'm anticipating his upcoming album. Despite all of the hype he's been getting I hadn't heard much Nipsey Hussle (features aside) before I got sent his 'Shooter' track. To be honest, I didn't love it at first but it's definitely turned out to be an addictive listen that I keep coming back to every few days.

Thought I'd upload these for the enjoyment of anyone who happens to somehow accidentally stumble onto this page (probably in a failed quest for porn).

Andre Nickatina - Tony Montana
Nipsey Hussle Ft Blanco - Shooter
Tech N9ne - Cry Baby
Trae Ft Lupe Fiasco - Bad Don't Seem So Wrong
Yelawolf Ft Gucci Mane - Wanna Party
