"Surround your self with death, in order to feel more alive."
Horror core songs are now at the bottom, normal stuff at the top.
Been messing with raps on, and off since about 1998. Just some thing I do every once in a while to cope with stressful times.
When I am confident it will happen.
I barely listen to any one but me, but if Im partying out------ Necro, Ill BIll, Goretex...Metallica...Deftones...Eminem (old CD's)..DZK FOR DAMN SURE...Slipknot...TWIZTID AND ICP.....THREE SIX MAFIA...Tupac...Esham....Natas...Bone n Thugs...Snoop Dogg (old Cd's)..Blaze ya Dead Homie, Soulfy, Necro, Dayton Family, Nirvana, Brotha Lynch.....I got more, but Im tired of typing.
That's what I listen to, but when it comes to influence I get 94 % of it from my own life, the sick shit is merely immitating horror movies I grew up watching as a kid, but turning it in to music.
