Gravediggaz The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel

October 24, 2011

The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel, released October 14, 1997, is the second album by the Gravediggaz, an influential horrorcore hip hop supergroup. The album has a more socially conscious sound to it and is considerably more calm than its predecessor, and features heavy production input by the RZA and his production team The Wu Elements.

Prince Paul was barely involved in the making of this album although he did produce the outro and the skit preceding “Hidden Emotions”. He was still billed as an official member of the group however, and appeared on the cover and inserts of the album. Two singles were released from the album, “Dangerous Mindz” and “The Night the Earth Cried“, though neither made it to the Billboard charts.
