The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email [email protected]
This Week's Rapper: Coyo
This Week's Subject: Horrorcore
Ask A Rapper: Okay, before we start, let us just through a few of your lines from "Fucked Up" out there:
"I feel like sittin' on top of Reliant Stadium with a motherfucking sniper gun."
"Kidnap your infant son that's 26 minutes born, duct tape your crippled mom to a ticking bomb."
"Listen boy, your wife's a sex slave until the bitch catch AIDS, getting fucked for 86,400 seconds a day, no rest breaks, making motherfucking sex tapes*."
*This is our favorite because we like when maniacs are good at math.
"I need my motherfucking medicine, before I burn down your residence."
These lines seem to indicate a few things:
1. You likely don't get booked for many babysitting jobs.
2. You're clearly a fan of the horrorcore genre.
So, that out there, let's have you do this: Can you name your six favorite horrorcore songs, along with a one or two sentence explanation about why you like them? That'd be just excellent. And you're off, you crazy bastard, you.
Coyo: I'm not a everyday listener of Horrorcore music; it's how I was feeling at the moment and a way to show my versatility as an artist. But I do have a few I like.
"Dirty Bitch*," Geto Boys
The simplicity of the song, plus his emotions, make it more authentic and relatable.
*This is not near as obtuse or bizarre or menacing as you'd expect a song by Bushwick Bill called "Dirty Bitch" to be; he's actually quite heartbreaking on it.
I liked it because of the detailed lyrical content and the passion he put into making the song authentic.
*Ah, the infamous Kim. She's always sounded like a horrible person, hasn't she?
