Up-&-coming Syracuse, New York underground emcee Krazy Attitude released his 7th mixtape over here about a couple months ago on Devil’s Night, which is basically the day before Halloween. He’s already built up a full-length debut, his previous 6 tapes & 3 EPs all in the span of 5 years with the last time we heard from him being his 6th mixtape Quey Grizzley last year. And looking at some of the titles here named after classic hip hop cuts from the last 3 decades, I was intrigued going into Simulation of Death.

After the “Welcome to the Simulation of Death” intro, the first song “Serial Killa” freestyles over the classic Snoop Dogg joint of the same name featuring Tha Dogg Pound & RBX whereas “On & On continues to kick it off the dome over one of my favorite Pete Rock & CL Smooth tracks. “Rhymeslayer” seems to have new original production going for a rawer sound slaying rhymes for y’all prior to “BANG!!!” shifting gears into trap territory talking about how this shit easy.

“6 SHOTS!!!” gives me a bit of a Detroit trap vibe instrumentally belittling his opposition just before “Lyrical Assassinator” gets back on his freestyle shit over “Terminator X to the Edge of Panic” by Public Enemy. After the “Reality Check” interlude, “Winter Warz” of course finds him flowing over the timeless cut off Ghostface Killah’s solo debut Ironman, but then “Worthless World” blends these synths with kicks & snares getting in his underground bag.

Meanwhile, “Pencil Illness” continues to spit off top over the the flawless “All Caps” by Madvillain  leading into “Harsh Reality” returning to the boom bap getting bringing to you hardcore on the lyrical front. “Here’s Mr. Terrorist” goes for a bit of a futuristic sound introducing his alter-ego of the same name almost like Eminem with Slim Shady & fittingly enough “Scary Movies” featuring Kean Asé joins forces on top of the beat from the immaculate b-side from Bad Meets Ǝvil.

After the “How High” interlude, “Smile More” goes for a suspenseful atmosphere instrumentally trying to show y’all the right way while “The Night Stalker” flows over “Blow” off of Tyler, The Creator’s only mixtape Bastard already fuckin’ celebrating it’s 14-year anniversary in a few days. “Unhinged” this time freestyles “Luper” by Earl Sweatshirt while the bell-heavy “DTF” admits that he’s crazy.

“Hellraiser” begins the encore of the tape by weaving these ominous synth patterns into the fold talking about being a murderer & “Kill Them All” closes out the tape with 1 last freestyle. Choice of song being “Skrunt Owt” by Fam-Lay or Tyler, The Creator’s “Splatter” freestyle at the beginning of Odd Future’s 2nd & final mixtape Radical that turned 13 about 7 months ago.

If you want mix between early 2010s & old school 90s hip hop with multisyllabic & internal rhyme schemes along with hardcore/horrorcore lyrics & braggadocio rhymes, then you’re gonna want to give this mixtape here a shot. You get a look at some of his influences throughout the whole duration of the project & feels reminiscent to Lil Wayne’s historic Dedication series

Score: 7/10
