(Album) Konquest – “Paranormal Raptivity”
Rising rap sensation Konquest just released his horror inspired hip-hop album from entitled Paranormal Raptivity. The album features artists Toka Hyrule, The MDz, Kae Franks, and Smoke to produce a bloodthirsty, serial killer level of intensity on Konquest’s Halloween hip-hop concept album.
The album includes the berserk fast-paced “Night Time”, which opens up with a distorted sample of Tiny Tim’s “Livin’ In The Sunlight, Lovin’ In The Moonlight” and dives deep into Konquest’s natural attraction to horror as subject for his material. Konquest writes, “I was never swayed by the swag movement. As you can already tell from my tattoo of Michael Myers, this Vampire bite tattoo on my neck etc., it was always horror and dark themed songs that did it for me.” The music video for “Night Time” was shot at All Saints Lunatic Asylum, a real haunted attraction where many have witnessed paranormal events before.
The album also has a variety of powerhouse collaborations including “Vampire Rave”, featururing Toka Hyrule & The MDz along with “Purge” featuring Smoke and Kae Franks. “Vampire Rave” is a monstrous party anthem highlighting pounding bass and dark opera backup vocals. “The more you run, the more I wanna bite you. Vampire party and I didn’t invite you.” “Purge” is an industrial beat with static police sirens that echo through the backtrack and magnetic rap flow.
“If you go back and listen to my past content, it can be realized that I was eventually going to end up diving full throttle into the Horror world.” He grew up in Inglewood, California where he fell in love with music through competitive freestyle battles which soon led him to the underground hip-hop scene. Inspired by artists such as Tech N9ne, Twista, Bone Thugs and Ghetto Boyz, Konquest brings a dynamic and irresistibly twisted sound to hip hop culture.
