  Horrorcore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Horrorcore (also known as death rap, murder rap, acid rap and wicked shit) is a subgenre of hip hop music that evolved from pioneers such as Kool Keith, Bushwick Bill, Insane Poetry, Gansta NIP, Esham, The Flatlinerz, KGP, Brotha Lynch Hung and The Gravediggaz.
The term "horrorcore" was coined by Russell Simmons, the man behind The Flatlinerz, who referred to horrorcore as being "hardcore rap with some horror movie themes".
Horrorcore artists often have ties with rock music, specifically heavy metal and hardcore punk.

The word "horrorcore" was made famous by both the Flatlinerz and Gravediggaz back in the early 90's when they came on the scene with their debut albums "USA (Under Satan's Authority)" and "6 Feet Deep." Who would be the bigger group came down to a push & popularity contest between Wu-Tang Clan and Russel Simmons.
At that time horrorcore was thought to be "the next big thing" considering gangsta rap's popularity was deteriorating quickly and the industry was looking for something new to catch the interest of hip-hop fans.
Horrorcore is also taken to be a derivative of the word "hardcore" which is an ADJECTIVE not a NOUN.

Though the horrorcore genre gave him a few new ears that enjoyed his dark natured material, it would be his ultimate love for the essence and purity of hip hop that would dictate his next course on the road to hip hop stardom.
Going by The Sadist in the horrorcore genre, the essence of hip hop tugged at his creativity and conscious, so fabricating the name J Reno (a play on his given name), he merged both aliases to accurately describe his character; an emcee's emcee with a dark nature to him.

The masterminds of horrorcore rap emerge from Detroit's netherworld.
Classified as horrorcore rap, a term coined to describe the increasingly violent and macabre nature of a sect of rap emerging from the Midwest, the work of Natas takes the traditional subject matter of gang-sta rap and pushes it even further.
Despite its shock value, or perhaps because of it, horrorcore, a longtime staple of the underground scene, has begun to seep into the mainstream in recent years through the growing popularity of groups like Insane Clown Posse, Halfbreed, Twiztid, and the now notorious Kid Rock and Eminem, whose music sometimes incorporates elements of horrorcore.

 Natas :: N of Tha World :: Moist Music
Hard to believe a man who was at the forefront of the horrorcore and acid rap movement and has well over 15 albums under his belt has yet to be reviewed once.
One of the album's best songs comes in the form of the hustler's anthem "Pancakes and Syrup." The track is experimental in the sense that the beat isn't the most conventional and is played at regular speed yet it is paired with screwed verses.
Being the pioneers of horrorcore, Natas definitely presents some of the better music out of the genre as they inject their music with social messages and stray from completely pointless songs.

In fact, Insane Poetry seem to be able to lay claim to the copyright of this bastard child of horror stories and rap music.
