I've never heard of this Joey De Viver, so I bet if ICP had the funds they could get him as a feature.

It's unfortunate to think that we may never get boo's take on The Endless River.

I've often thought that Eminem, ICP and Brotha Lynch Hung should do a collab album.

Nah, Brotha Lynch Hung doesn't have the comedy chops to hang with them. None of them are really on the same artistic page tbh.

Reminiscent of Waco
Take hoes and put 'em in a box, tomatoes
I hate 'em, cook 'em in Crisco and I filleted 'em and ate 'em
Filleted 'em and ate 'em, bakin' potatoes
Hot totty, stickin' a fork in a hot body
Hittin' the porch like a botched robbery


Brotha Lynch has a different kind of chops. And his humor is just a little more understated, is all.

Nah he just kind of has his boring horrorcore with no imagination thing going on. He's like the idea of horrocore if horrocore was nothing but an explicit Wikipedia article on horrorcore.

I could agree with that for the large majority of his albums. Surprisingly enough, I thought his last album (released in 2013) was the best he's ever done. I think the last three of his albums have more of a conceptual framework for him to work with and as a result, they've really played to his strengths. Signing to Strange Music (Tech N9ne's record label) was the best thing he ever did. The beefed up production really helps him stand out among a crowd of, as you put it, Wikipedia-esque horrorcore.

Gravediggaz 'Six Feet Deep' is still my bar for what a great horrorcore album should be. Mannibalector falls a little short because of irritating skits and a few filler songs.
