Five Awesome Halloween Hip-Hop Videos


I'll keep this short and sweet. You love Halloween. You love a little hip-hop in your life. So here are a handful of suitably seasonal rap videos. The first one, brought to my attention by DJ Food via Twitter, is a fantastic A-Z collection of movie monsters by Mister Jason. It's a sweet jam and there's a LOT of legitimate monster love in it.

Next, let's go a little cheesy -- well, more than a little cheesy. Enjoy an incredible track from Digital Underground as it was used in the absurdly awful "Nothing But Trouble."

Next up, the only rap song ever recorded by The Crypt Keeper. I was a huge fan of half-scrambled "Tales From the Crypt" when I was a kid and this ultra-cheesy track brings the puns in true Keeper fashion.

And finally, I give you The Fat Boys. And Will Smith. And Freddy Krueger.

Happy Halloween, everybody! And if you crave more Halloween music, check out my post on Halloween mixes.
