5 Bangin' Unconventional Halloween Jams!

Add these to your playlist! We've got 5 pretty slick songs that can spice up your Halloween playlist in an unconventional way!

Bell Biv DeVoe - "Poison"

We love the idea of throwing in some old school on the list - and a track around Halloween called "Poison" totally kicks up the throwback notch at your Halloween party. People go crazy for this song, so prepare for some dancing Hotline Bling style.

 

The Lonely Island Featuring Nicki Minaj - "The Creep"

Though the song is a satire of a real rap jam, Nicki Minaj throws down quite possibly one of the most hilarious verses, and, well Samberg and crew don't do too bad either.  "When the judge is a hottie and you can't control yahh body, do the creep!"

 

Kanye West, JAY Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Bon Iver - "Monster"

I'm really sad there isn't a music video for this one, because it packs a ton of star power. Rick Ross lays down a pre-verse before Kanye comes through. Still, out of all the rappers on this track, this has got to be my favorite Nicki Minaj verse ever. She goes into 3 personalities or more, and is so fluid, it's perfect. Lyrics NSFW.

 

Travis Barker Featuring Slaughterhouse - Devil's Got A Hold

Rita Ora's new beau came out with a solo project a few years ago called "Give The Drummer Some" in which he brought on a lot of rappers to lay some sick rhymes to his drum beats. This particular one was from Slaughterhouse, which talks about the struggle from SH himself on how the Devil tries to distract him from his passion. Lyrics NSFW.

JAY Z - "Lucifer"

The old school JAY Z threw in some great samples here for this song. Lucifer ended up being a biblical reference in some sense, as a synonym for the Devil. Jay raps about his friends that have gone by death or murder. Also, a fun little back story on this - Kanye used to produce for Jay before rapping. This song in particular, he is listed as the producer, and HOV calls out to Yeezy in the begining, "Kan-yeezy you did it again, you a genius!" Lyrics NSFW.
