From: Detroit, MI
Signature Song: Esham "KKKill the Fetus" (1993)

It's hard to say that Esham should be more mainstream; his horrorcore is resolutely opposed to anything resembling mainstream values, openly embracing and making a mockery of anything resembling good taste or respect for those who are victimized. It's a kind of spectacular, exaggerated therapy, an attempt to find the darkest possible places. But Esham reminds us that while we don't always like rappers the cross the line, rappers that go wayyyy past the line are kinda awesome
