Free Candy: Scarier than a Lil Wayne birthday cake

Epic Mystery Train Halloween Mix
Our very own A Boy Named Sooie digs deep to pull out this oddball assortment of frightening boogie woogie, blues, jazz and rockabilly tunes. So good. [Derek's generosity]

Kid Koala "Tricks 'N' Treats"
Like a lot of turntablism, this drags after a while, but anything that leads with an extended sample of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" deserves a spot on your Halloween playlist. [Road 2 Nowhere]

Jim Carroll "People Who Died"
It's not especially festive, but the creepy glee with which Carroll sings about the horrible ways people he knows have died ("Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room /
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the tombs / Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein") is right there in the Halloween music sweet spot. Plus, Caroll just died, died! [Snuh]

BONUS: I'm sure hip-hop heads have seen this, but casual fans make sure you check out this freestyle track from the BET Awards with Mos Def, Black Thought and Eminem. Everyone MURDERS it.
