Everything on this playlist postdates the question in this thread by several years, but if you ignore that small detail, it seems pretty close to the vibe described.

What kind of music is the hip-hopish stuff the showtime kids in the subway dance to? I feel like I asked this once in another thread but didn't get a clear answer and now I can't find it.

How much you want to bet that glenn has made a “grim reapah” genre category on spotify

It's called "scream rap". Other than not existing at the time when this question was posed, it is definitely what was being described.

heh, i kinda meant that you might've built a "burbbhrbhbbhbburbbb" category and i am just a LITTLE disappointed you haven't.... yet.

I've spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out what the original grim reapah thing was, with no luck. This new stuff sounds totally like some people had been trying to find it, too, and finally got fed up and said "if we can't find it, let's MAKE it".
