Bringing creepy vibes and rap music together.
Halloween may be in a few days but the celebrations have already started. There’s just something about putting on a costume, a mask and taking on a different persona. While this annual holiday may only exist for a short period of time, the stories and visuals influenced by Halloween often last for many years. Here are our picks of the best hip-hop music videos that you can play during a Halloween house party.
Tyga – Dope’d Up
Taking some notes from Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller visual, Tyga’s version included a trip inside an insane asylum full of strange rooms.
Chris Brown – High End Feat. Future & Young Thug
The rapper/singer has always experimented with his visuals and this was one of his craziest ideas to date. Featuring zombies, vampires and all sorts of supernatural beings, it’s a fitting Halloween-themed visual.
French Montana – Don’t Panic
When French Montana released this music video back in 2014 everyone praised his creative direction. Hip-hop and rap videos always offer up the same old luxury cars and strippers scenario. But in this visual, we saw influences from movies like Saw, The Purge, and IT.
Lil Uzi Vert – XO Tour Llif3
Directed by Virgil Abloh, the visual for Lil Uzi Vert’s breakout hit song featured slasher flick influences. The Lo-Fi VHS feel also added some classic horror film vibes.
Rihanna – Disturbia
Ok our bad, Rihanna may not technically qualify to be hip-hop, but she’s collaborated with some successful rappers and has influenced the rap genre. Her visual for “Disturbia” back in 2009 was a cinematic masterpiece that included freaky scenarios and characters. Sure, there were also a lot of dancing and Rihanna looking extra fine, but that’s all part of a good Halloween nightclub party anyways.
Kanye West – Paranoid ft. Mr Hudson
If you watched this right after “Disturbia” above, it’s almost like a continuation story. Sorta.
Nicki Minaj – Only Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown
Although not really qualifying to be a Halloween music video, it had elements of the occult strewn throughout the whole video.
The Weeknd – The Hills
It’s no secret that The Weeknd has produced some freaky visuals. But some of his lyrics have also raised some goosebumps. When he sings “The hills have eyes” on this track, one can’t help but picture the horror film with the same title.
