Greetings, ghouls and goblins. Halloween is upon us and we must celebrate the mayhem and mischief with appropriate music. Are you ready to venture into the night and get your freak on with zombies and werewolves? Good. Here are the Top 5 Halloween Rap Songs of 2010. (For more spine-tingling music, see our Top 10 Spooky Rap Songs)
Tech Nina has crafted his share of spooky songs over the years. His latest, "What's Ya Psycho?," is the monstrous anthem that can turn a graveyard into a dancehall full of zombie troupes.
This is an ominous track, from the slow-rolling beat to the sinister chants. Psalm One likens herself to an oasis in the wilderness, while Canibus adds to the dark vibe with a visual portrait of "little green men with big eyes."
Driven by delicious piano licks, "Ghost in the Machine" is a dark and creepy track from one of rap's brightest new stars. Reflective grandeur of transcendent emotions overwhelm B.o.B, as he cries out: "I'm terrified, like I've seen a UFO."
Looking for a Halloween rap song to get the party started? Cue this monstrous posse cut and watch the crowd go wild. Bon Iver kicks things off with: "I shoot the lights out/Hide til its bright out/Whoa, just another lonely night/Are you willing to sacrifice your life?" Later, Jay-Z rattles off a list of all the creatures that spooked us out as kids: "Sasquatch, Godzilla, King Kong, Lochness, Goblin, Ghoul, a zombie with no conscience."
Like a full-moon rising, "Maniac" gradually unfolds with a gothic vibe. Cudi and Cage add the perfect the touch of horror with lines about a psychotic disturbance deep within. "It lives inside of me, eating what's in its way," Cage laments. If you want to turn up the surreal vibe a few notches, set this one to a strobe light.
