Gravediggaz – 6 Feet Deep (1994)

Gravediggaz - 6 Feet Deep

The Hip Hop Supergroup that pioneered Horrorcore. Horrorcore? Yeah, they’re talking about tough topics such as  suicide, death, killing or psychopathy. The album was titled Niggamortis at first but was changed to 6 Feet Deep for a better reaction on the American market. Overseas, the album kept its original title and included a bonus track called Pass The Shovel. Ah btw – it was produced by Prince Paul…

De La Soul – 3 Feet High And Rising (1989)

De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are about to present you one of the most influential Hip Hop albums of all time: 3 Feet High And Rising. Produced by the later so famous Prince Paul it features really nice, poppy sounding samples which made the album such a high seller. Being members of the Native Tongues Posse, De La Soul were just the total opposite to groups such as N.W.A. transporting gangster themes. Instead a positive attitude toward life and peace & harmony characterized their lyrics.
