Did horrorcore kill hip-hop?
It’s “all about the Benjamins” –from luxury cars to money stacks– in most of the hip-hop today. Whether in lyrics or performance, this materialism is often celebrated by artists of the genre. For rapper Trash Gordon, however, hip-hop is a vehicle by which he dares to offend. In this episode, Paul and Jordan talk to Trash about why he performs “horrorcore,” directly at odds with mainstream norms and sensibilities, and the value he sees in sharing his lurid imagination with the world. Find Trash’s music on iTunes and Bandcamp.
