7. Poetic


Originally known as Too Poetic during his days with the short-lived Long Island group of the same name, Trinidad-born Anthony Berkeley later joined up with RZA, Prince Paul and Frukwan (of Stetsasonic fame) to form the darkly comedic rap supergroup Gravediggaz, adopting the alias “Grym Reaper” and a new, “disturbed” rhyme style. Sadly, the talented and highly underrated MC died following a battle with colon cancer in 2001.
