The Source did a review on a Classic. Gravediggaz Dangerous Mindz. They came back in full gear after the success off of 6 Feet Deep, thier first album and they came back at it in 97 with The Pick, The Sickle and The Shovel and this hard joint Dangerous Mindz was the kicker. Everybody came hard on this one but Grym Reaper and RZA had the hardest lines on here. Who had the best verse on this joint?................ #Gravediggaz #RZA #Poetic #Frukwan #PrincePaul #TheRZARector #TheGrymReaper #TheGatekeeper #TheUndertaker #DangerousMindz #4thDisciple #ThePickTheSickleAndTheShovel #GeeStreetRecords #WuTang #TheSourceMagazine #TheSource #SureShotSingle #90sHipHop #BoomBap #HipHop #GoldenEraHipHop #GoldenEra #UndergroundHipHop #HipHopJunkie #HipHopHead #90sClassic #90sHipHopHead #RIPPoetic

This one is definitely a bizarre one but I love this album so much! The lineup on this debut album that spawned an entire subculture is nuts! Too Poetic, RZA (Wu-Tang), Frukwan( Stetsasonic), and Prince Paul (De La Soul, Stetsasonic) make up The Gravediggaz. This pilot album dealing largely with subjects of death, torture, suicide and the afterlife is complimented so perfectly by Prince Paul and RZA's horror, Halloween style production. The whole album leaves you a little on edge and uncomfortable but it is so beautifully dark you feel similar to being part of The Adams Family. The album also touches largely on social context and black America. Though I wasn't a fan of the cover art initially it definitely grew on me once I gave the album a proper listen then understood that it goes along with the music all too well!
What I like about these guys is that they take a subject like death and speak so openly abut it without the stigma that is often around the topic. They find comfort in an uncomfortable area while leaving your neck hairs standing on end.
Favorite tracks: 1-800 Suicide, Diary of a Madman, Defective Trip (Trippin'), Bang Your Head

I've owned this physical album more than any other. The cassettes did some years in Illinois DOC with me even. And it just doesn't get old, for me. Salute to @rza for helping a kid delve into some deeper understanding. Without 6 Feet Deep, I wouldn't have jumped in. PEACE!
