Album Review

6 Feet Deep is a sick joke. A lethally great and a ghoulishly comical one, but a deranged and sadistic prank nonetheless. Eschatological, gruesome, paranoid, and obsessed with death (both imposing and experiencing it), the debut from eeeeevil supergroup Gravediggaz lands somewhere in the nexus at which the bizarro universe of legendary producer Prince Paul — who oversees the whole project while wearing the mask and wielding the shovel of the Undertaker for the occasion — crashes headlong into RZA's dingy, farcical New York City, a haunted, inverse Oz where graffiti meets science fiction meets splatter flick in an unholy alliance that finds Freddy Krueger fiendishly pursuing the turf gangs out of Walter Hill's The Warriors down 125th and Elm Streets. Throw in a few crazed variations on Medieval torture techniques, a few too many midnight kung-fu screenings, and a few fantasies of bodily damage so giddily, demonically cartoonish that they would make Wile E. Coyote lick his lips with mischievous envy, and you have this brilliantly strange, whimsically jagged horror film in song (critics unofficially dubbed the style horrorcore) with its maimed and gnawed tongue firmly planted in cheek. If you can stomach the buckets of lyrical blood spilled herein, there is no end to the gory highlights, from the running-in-place nightmare of "Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide" to the psychotically nauseous angel-dust high of "Defective Trip (Trippin')" to the willfully objectionable "1-800 Suicide" and self-destructive "Bang Your Head," all of them terribly catchy. As a bonus, 6 Feet Deep is sure to offend the sensibilities of all middle-aged family-values crusaders and conservative-type politicians — vampires of a different sort — who aren't in on the joke. Overseas, the album was titled Niggamortis. With its combined allusion to mortality and example of wicked wordplay, it would have been even more apropos. Whatever it goes by, though, the album can be resurrected again and again without losing any of its devilishly good potency.

Customer Reviews

One of the best rap albums on the market

most people think of RZA as a producer first, rapper second. and really, thats probably good because he hasn't ever really been able to compete with the rest of the clan on the mic, standing next to ODB, GZA, meth, etc. but on this album, he drops verses next to Too Poetic and Frukwon and manages to show them up on occasion, as the highlight of the entire album is RZA's verse on diary of a madman over Prince Paul's haunting and eerie beat. 6 Feet Deep, 2 Cups of Blood, 1-800 Suicide, and my personal favorite Diary of a Madman are the best on the album i believe.

Sure to be a classic

I have no idea why this cd is so unknown...all I know is it's sure to be a classic...a genious work of art. Ahead of its time I guess.

Consumate Wu-Oriented Creativity

Lookit...It was about this time that Wu-Tang was releasing high caliber art all revolving around the Wu's cryptic hyptontic message. Ultimately, the question arises..."What's next?" Fan or no fan, one will wonder if RZA has the creative endurance for expanding the Wu army. This offshoot "Gravediggaz is just that product. The Gravediggaz is more than a probe into horror-rap, which was a popular description of the genre at the time. That term would cheapen or diminish what GRAVEDIGGAZ represented musically and culturally. Im certain only a few had the tolerance for the imagery...or subject matter. This represents a deliberate intellectual choice of crude ultra violence. Cultural attrocities set to crisp production. If "Clockwork Orange" or "Nosferatu" were urban oriented...then you would have an idea what GRAVEDIGGAZ were creating. Take a listen and just try not to be seduced. RZA is the musical equal to Lovecraft.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Gravediggaz's violent mixture of hardcore gangsta rap and heavy metal was labeled "horrorcore" by some in the press. The whole incident is somewhat ironic, considering the heritage of the group. The mastermind of the group, the Undertaker, is better known as Stetsasonic's Prince Paul (born Paul Huston), who has produced De La Soul among other alternative hip-hop groups. The other members include the Rzarector (RZA of Wu-Tang Clan), the Grym Reaper (Poetic), and the Gatekeeper (Frukwan; born Arnold...
