Shaq, RL Stine, and more hop in the cut on RL Grime’s shiver-inspiring seasonal mix, ‘Halloween VII’
As RL Grime fans will attest, the indisputable sweetest treat of Halloween weekend won’t be found among bowls of candy on porches or in drink specials catered to bar crawl crowds, but rather in RL Grime’s annual Halloween mix. As much a necessity of costumed celebration of the October holiday as face masks and ghoulish makeup, Grime’s Halloween mix is a quintessential component of Halloween each year. 2018 marks seven consecutive years of Grime’s release of the slapping seasonal product, and as in past years, Grime satiates with his trap take on spooky season.
“Halloween VII” sees Shaq, RL Stine, and Jake Foushee hop in the cut alongside Grime to collaboratively stagger shiver-worthy drops throughout the mix. A heavy hybrid of hip-hop selects and trap-oriented inclusions, “Halloween VII” provides a forceful soundtrack to weekend festivities. With no calories, no sugar, and no consequential hangover, the one-hour mix bears absolutely no tricks.
