Album: Cold Blooded
Label: Wicked Entertainment

Triple Darkness' rap style fit in well with fellow West Side rappers like Do or DIe or PsychoDrama; the trio of DaWreck, Hanius and Trick released the Cold Blooded EP in the late-1990s, and the slow, ethereal "Chop Up That Paper" was an immediate highlight. With slow-rolling production featuring a chopped vocal sample and eerie melodic backing, the group spit midwest double-time flows into the history books with a track that epitomized what made mid-late '90s Chicago such a distinctive sound.David Drake
