[[caption-width-right:288:From left to right: The Rzarector, The Undertaker, The Gatekeeper and [[AuthorExistenceFailure the late]] Grym Reaper]]

A HipHop group noted for popularizing the {{Horrorcore}} style, Gravediggaz primarily consisted of Stetsasonic's Frukwan (The Gatekeeper), Music/WuTangClan's RZA (The Rzarector), Music/DeLaSoul producer Prince Paul (The Undertaker), and Brothers Grym's Poetic (The Grym Reaper). Gravediggaz is noted for a high level of GallowsHumor, Music/GetoBoys-influenced cartoonish violence, esoteric references to the Nation of Gods and Earths and dark production.

Their first album, ''Niggamortis'' (more widely known as ''6 Feet Deep'' in the United States), is one of the most widely appraised {{Horrorcore}} albums, and features some of the darkest production by Prince Paul. Their next album, ''The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel'', featured production by RZA and a calmer sound, while the lyrics combined their usual Horrorcore fare with sociopolitical issues. ''Nightmare in A-Minor'' was recorded without RZA and Prince Paul, who had left the group. After Poetic's AuthorExistenceFailure in 2001, the group remained inactive until recording a new track, "2 More Cups of Blood" in 2010, and announcing a new Gravediggaz album in 2011.

Not to be confused with Music/GraveDigger, a German metal band.
