DeKalb Police website's badass beats inspires badass album

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 3:00 PM

If you've ever visited the DeKalb County Police Department's website, you know it's a treasure trove of lo-fi rap loops that surely scare the bejesus out of criminals and confuse the hell out of taxpayers. But the tunes always made us smile. ytcracker — the "undisputed king of nerdcore" — heard the beats and found inspiration.

ytcracker… nerdcore rapper, hacker, and founder of Digital Gangster (you can thank that board and it’s members for the hack of Miley Cyrus)… went and recorded an entire album based on the music from the DPD website. Even more impressive, he did it in less than 10 hours, it’s profanity free, and the lyrics are fucking hillarious. My favorite, hands down, is “executive_command.html”

Six profanity-free tracks, each one inspired by the different part of the site where the loops could be heard. Awesome.

The department has since removed the loops from its website, but they're preserved for time eternal on the Internet. Listen to 'em here. A free download of the entire album is available here.
