Dead Entertainment spotlights new HOK track, history of House Of Krazees

If you ordered the HOK Audio Single Box, then you already know that you got a sneak preview of the track “Death 4any1 Who…” immediately after your purchase.  The rest of you were treated to the single via Youtube and Facebook yesterday.  From all accounts that I have seen, the single and it’s old school vibe were met with extreme enthusiasm, and left fans old and new clamoring for more!

The homies at DeadEntertainment.com wrote an article about the track, and gave a bio in honor of the House Of Krazees 25th anniversary!  You can hear the track, and view the full article below:

From DeadEntertainment.com:

Dead Beats: “Death for Anyone Who…” by House of Krazees

Detroit horrorcore pioneers reunite for a brand new single.

Nearly twenty years have passed since the Detroit-based horrorcore/hip-hop trio House of Krazees hung-up their microphones and pumpkin-faced hockey masks for good, and embarked on separate journeys that would not only change their lives, but also launch their careers out of the local scene and into more mainstream territory.

Mr. Bones and Hektic, better known now as former Insane Clown Posse-protégés, Jamie Madrox (aka Jamie Spaniolo) and Monoxide (aka Paul Methric), went on to form Twiztid after joining Psychopathic Records in 1997. They remained with the label until 2012, releasing nine studio albums and countless side projects before moving on to lay the groundwork for their own company, MNE (Majik Ninja Entertainment), which is now home to thirteen recording artists.

The R.O.C. (aka Bryan Jones) would carry on the Krazees legacy for a couple years after the original line-up disbanded, recruiting local emcee Skrapz to fill the vacancy. The duo would release one final album as HOK before retiring the name and re-branding themselves as HalfBreed. In the years that followed, Jones would continue to thrive on the independent scene, involving himself in numerous projects and solo efforts. He would go on to work with Psychopathic Records via their short-lived sub-label, Hatchet House, eventually reuniting with his childhood friends and ex-HOK members, Madrox and Monoxide, when he joined the MNE artist ranks.

In 2013, the pioneering trio, who fellow Detroit-native and self-proclaimed Rap God Eminem once opened up for, celebrated their industry independence by returning to their HOK-roots with the song “Monstrosity,” which appeared on Twiztid’s A New Nightmare EP and was followed by a HOK compilation album titled Casket Cutz. Both of these were met with rabid demands from fans for a reunion album. Despite this, the “house” remained relatively quiet over the next five years.

That was, of course, until the silence came to a crashing halt at 3:00am on February 12th 2018 when the official Twiztid Facebook page posted the following update:

The devil’s hour is a time of night associated with supernatural events. The hour between 3 and 4 a.m. is considered a period of peak for supernatural activity, due to the absence of prayers in the canonical hours during this period.

Every 25 years, they return…

Attached to this bit of spiritual superstition was the surprise release of House of Krazees’ first music video and latest single, “DEATH 4ANY1 WHO…” The track, which clocks out around three and a half minutes and serves as a soundtrack-of-sorts to compliment a series of surrealistic imagery taken from the films Begotten and Nosferatu, is a true return to form for a group that has traveled a long road over the last twenty years and has mastered their craft (and then some) since. Not only do they somehow manage to recapture that past glory of the earliest House of Krazees recordings, but they update it with their refined flow, lyricism, and production, all the while ensuring that the song sounds like a true HOK classic and not simply a Twiztid song that features The R.O.C. As an added bonus, they went old school with it and sampled a horror clip or two to help compliment the wickedly hard-hitting beat. There’s just something so satisfying about Tim Curry’s Pennywise on a brand new HOK song!

Rumors of the group’s return have been floating around since early January when MNE unveiled an image advertising a re-mastered House of Krazees vinyl collection celebrating the group’s 25th Anniversary. Unsatisfied with the tease, fans began to push for more information and Monoxide finally addressed the subject on an episode of his Facebook Live show, Brunch and Bake, which shed a bit more light on what we can expect from the trio:

What we’re doing, Travis Westbrook (the individual who asked), is that we’re gonna record a song as HOK.  We’ll put it up, and if people give a fuck, then maybe we’ll do the record.  But if don’t nobody give a fuck, then there you go, you’ve got a new song. That happens tomorrow. We start that tomorrow.  Demand will dictate everything for Majik Ninja Entertainment from here on out.  Demand dictates everything.

With the video having over sixty-thousand views across a variety of platforms in just the first 24 hours, I have no doubt in my mind that the three will once again don the hockey masks for another season of the pumpkin, so to speak.

I think over 1,000 of those 60,000+ views may be from me alone.  If the album that they’re working on is ANYTHING like this single, then sign me the fuck up!

    I have not been into much of what MNE has released but I would spend good money on this album. This is better than anything I’ve heard in a LONG time. Madrox killed it.

    Sounds like 2018 twiztid and roc talking about pumpkins, not HOK. HOK had a time frame. It should stay in that time frame. Leave it alone you money hungry scuz balls

    This started soooo dope. I was feelin’ Madrox and then ROC started “rapping.” 😑 Worst amd most literal verse I’ve ever heard. He is the exact reason Twiztid avoid HOK work. They put themselves above him and they should. Dude is gaaarbage.

    Dom Madden- if you’re reading this- I 100% totally agree. You ain’t alone homie! Maybe if Twiztid would have humbled their way out instead of being assholes they wouldn’t have true old skool ass Juggalos like us MNE bashing all the time. I was once a loyalist- even post Psychopathic- rooting for them and cheering them on- buying their albums and supporting them- hell, I think every Juggalo alive accepted them moving on and doing their own thing when they announced they were leaving initially- but the “heir to the underground throne” (LAUGHABLE!!!!) done fucked up! I wouldn’t give them another penny with a gun to my head telling me to! Ever since the ICP Faygoluvers true tell all interview last year. Regardless, we all have a right, good or bad, to state our opinions. Especially on this website. Enjoy the Juggafaux entertainment ya Twizzly Twizzlers!!! Mmfl!

    @SpOOky J I’m an old school juggalo and i 100% disagree with everything Dom Madden says, dudes the definition of a hater. Yeah you’re just a Violent J dick riding follower that will blindly listen to everything he says like a true juffalo. Twiztid is the shit. Twisslers is the best you could think of. That shit’s so played and not even clever. you don’t belong here but i know you hang on every word Twiztid says because deep down you love em. admit it you love em. lol

    I don’t belong here, huh? Interesting. Do you like, hate ICP or something? THEN WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU EVEN ON HERE YA FUCKIN’ WEIRDO!?! It sounds like you want to marry Twizzy or sum’n there Corey…. So are you like, the Anti-Jugg now? Apples don’t fall from their respective trees, I suppose. I’m an absolute STICKLER for details, so I say this- ICP gave us details. True or not, they gave us DETAILS. So they made up all 2 hours of that interview? Highly doubtful. Twiztid gave us bullshit. A 2 minute response montage video explaining absolutely nothing. Their & ICP’s personal relationship is in turmoil & it’s just that- THIERS- I honestly don’t care- It isn’t any of our business. But if J was just trippin’ on some bullshit, and Twiztid were the absolute holy rollers in this situation, then why not TELL US THAT?! WHY NOT CALL ICP OUT ON THEIR BULLSHIT? I can tell you why- Because Twiztid & 90% of MNE are dumpy, fake, disrespectful & ungrateful AS FUCK!!!! You a grown ass man Corey, you believe what you want- but I’m telling you, in 10 years-5 years- shit, in 1 year- you’ll see what’s up. Twiztid will only continue to expose themselves for the true douchers they really are, and like I “blindly follow ICP” (laughable, I’m not a mindless drone, or a sheep, you idiot!), You and the 5% of “Juggalos” (Who invented that word again?….hmm……) that still, for whatever reason, like them- will blindly follow them into the black, dark abyss of nothingness they want you to go down, and I guarantee you that you’ll be crying like a baby bitch about it in the end. If you want to defend people who don’t give a fuck about anything but themselves (that includes you!), then follow them down that hellfire road buddy. I won’t see you there.
