28. D.R.U.G.S.- Flatbush Zombies

I like creepy rap music just as much as the next guy. But when a group, associated with A$AP Rocky none the less, can throw down harder than most rappers and stay creepier than Michael Jackson after he went white face, well, lets just say they are going to be loved. And they are going to be loved because they are unique and there is nothing better in rap music than a creative style that isn’t really being done by anyone else. The beats are really heavy and dark sounding and the voices that the group is so famous for are in no other words, fairly creepy. Their “scary” persona also comes from the fact they do A LOT of drugs and their few, well produced music videos, have them tripping out hard core. It seems as an attempt to one up Odd Future, but honestly, it works for me. No one else is out there rapping about bath salts and eating faces, so salute to the Flatbush Zombies for at least doing something different. I don’t know how many times I can say it, but A LOT of rap was released this year and sometimes it is hard to differentiate between what the albums are that are worth listening to. Normally I base this off of how unique or original the artist and sound is and it really doesn’t get more original than the Flatbush Zombies and their horror core/ death metal influenced rap.
