Halloween has become every trap lover’s favorite time of the year. The reason being Henry Steinway, also known as RL Grime, releases his annual hour-long mix. This tradition began in 2012, and each year since RL Grime’s fans get giddy in October because they know RL will be posting yet another legendary mix before Halloween approaches.
Many could consider RL Grime the king of trap music, and these mixes are a prime reminder that he still holds the throne. “Halloween V” was released at 12am, and boy is it filled with many goodies. Every mix includes a guest narrator and this year we begin our edition with the infamous Pharrell. Then we also hear from the legendary Goosebumps creator R. L. Stine, which sets the spooky tone for the remainder of the mix.
RL Grime showcases a variety of artists, ranging from Ekali and G Jones to Quix, Mr. Carmack, and all the way around town to Rezz. You cannot listen to RL without expecting the best rap, and you will get to hear Young Thug, Kendrick Lamar, Desiigner, and Mike Jones in “Halloween V”. The end of his mix features RL Grime’s new banger, “Waiting”, which features What So Not and Skrillex. This is the one we’ve all been patiently waiting on, and the wait will be over November 3.
Warning: You need to listen to this mix at a high volume.
