‘Mark’ — Shahmen

The mysterious and dark rapper, Shahmen, brings a hard-hitting production and his deep, earthy voice to the table in this track.

‘South Side Suicide’ — $uicideboy$

Though the New Orleans duo doesn’t consider themselves horrorcore, their themes of suicide are dark enough to warrant that title.

‘Yonkers’ — Tyler, The Creator

His most recent album Flower Boy presents a departure from his original style, however, ‘Yonkers’ screams classic Tyler.

‘1-800-Suicide’ — Gravediggaz

Horrorcore creators Gravediggaz mix a laid-back production with smooth prose on this song that sarcastically tells the listener to embrace their ignorance.

‘OkayButThisIsTheLastTime’ — BONES

This horrorcore tune achieved meme status as the soundtrack to bottle-flip videos. Despite this, the track’s lyrics are dark, moody, and quintessentially horrorcore.
