How insane is it that dudes are just sitting on albums like this? Like, what does RZA have in the vaults? Did he really lose everything in that flood? What is Pete Rock hiding under his MPC? Consider this post a plea to every awesome producer from 1988-1996 to unleash every song they were never able to get out into the world when they wanted to. Prince Paul has done his part with this Horror City record, which falls chronologically after The Gravediggaz’ 6 feet Deep but before Prince Paul left the group and RZA took up production duties, which is basically just a nerdy way of saying that if you liked what Prince Paul was doing in the mid-’90s (um, inventing horrorcore?), then this is the record for you. After the jump, read some background from Paul on the record.

A word from the producer …. Horror City 1995 P.Paul
This was a project that I wanted to put together with Amityville MC legend Superstar . as I thought about it more I wanted to recruit more Mcs we knew to make it diverse . Superstar already had the name “Horror City” so wen recorded under that name . This project was recorded right after the first Gravedigga album ” 6ft deep”in 1995 . I shopped the demo but unfortunately it got looked over and never got signed . I sat on this project for a while but it always had a dear place in my heart because I thought it was really good and the talent was there . I stripped some of the music from the demo and put it on ” a prince among thieves” and actually had a few of the guys perform on the ” Thieves ” album as well but to be honest I always liked these originals better . So now I have decided share these songs with all of you because holding on to them made no sense .. why not share great music . Hopefully you the listener will enjoy this project as much as I do . please share it , thats why I made this for free download .
