Scum Pays Homage to His Generation of Underground O.G.s on Devereaux-Prod. 3rd EP “Bad Uncle” (EP Review)

This is the 3rd EP from Denver based Russian-American emcee Scum. Emerging as the founder of the seminal horrorcore label Lyrikal Snuff Productionz, he’s gone on to release 14 albums & a couple EPs on his own, the last 3 full-lengths being in a trilogy called the Dyin’ World Chroniclez. But coming off the Blame Us collab effort with Smallz One last summer, the Gorefather’s teaming up with Chapter 17/Psychopathic Records in-house producer Devereaux for his 3rd EP.

The title track is an orchestral trap opener to the EP talking about hearing about a party that he wasn’t even invited to whereas “Way 2 Foul” featuring Smallz One finds the 2 recapturing the chemistry of Blame Us by jumping on top of an instrumental with a terrifying atmosphere to it detailing how disgusting or dirty both of them really are. “Lozt” works in some bells & hi-hats confronting those running they mouths that is until “Sick Puppy” featuring LSP alumni/C17’s latest signing Darby O’Trill wickedly promising that those who cross them will get fucked up over a booming trap beat.

“Beyond Salvation” works in some heavy horns & hi-hats warning not to fuck with him or even try to pull up on him prior to “The Selectaz” featuring Chapter 17 founder/Psychopathic recording artist Ouija Macc declare themselves as exactly that over a synth-laced trap beat. “Whatcha Gon’ Do?” nears the end of Scum’s best EP to date with suspenseful wicked shit banger & “Awld Goat” by M.M.M.F.D. comes through with an aggressive closer advising to stay away from old goats with new tricks.

It’s been over a decade since the Gorefather’s first EP Mr. Zipperface & the follow-up Grim Zipper is approaching the 10-year mark next spring, so it only makes sense to make Bad Uncle a charm because it’s easily the best of the 3 he’s dropped to date. Devereaux continues to elevate himself as one of the underground wicked shit scene’s most in-demand producers in recent memory, Scum lyrically is at some of his most grotesque in the best way possible & the features all perform on his caliber.

Score: 9/10
