Go To

David Hutto (born September 4, 1985), better known as Boondox, is a rapper from Covington, Georgia whose stage persona is a Scary Scarecrow. His music generally mixes Horrorcore, country and rock. Much of his lyrics derive from Deep South fears, à la The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or House of 1000 Corpses. He's also released some Gangsta Rap tracks under the names "Turn Coat Dirty" and "Yung Dirt".

Boondox was the only Southern artist signed to Psychopathic Records. Though he left the label in 2012 due to problems with drug addiction, he came back the next year after he got sober, but left again in 2015, signing with Twiztid's record label, Majik Ninja Entertainment, the following year


  • The Harvest (2006)
  • Punkin Hed EP (2007)
  • Krimson Creek (2008)
  • South Of Hell (2010)
  • Abbadon (2014)
  • The Murder (2017)
  • Krimson Krow (TBA)

Boondox provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: His song "Family Tree" which is about his real life family.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Used in Black Eyed Kids.
  • Country Rap
  • Creepy Child: Black Eyed Kids.
  • Creepy Crows: His persona is a scarecrow so these naturally appear from time to time. His 2017 album "The Murder" in particular features squawking crows throughout and has this as its general theme. Its cover even has a picture of a murder of crows swarming around Boondox himself, who has long black bird wings.
  • Darker and Edgier: Abbadon is probably Boondox's darkest album yet. Just look at the name...
  • Deal with the Devil: Used for effect in Cold Day In Hell:
    I soul my soul for a .45
    a black cowboy hat and a switchblade knife
    I'm gonna burn like a sinner if they take my life
    but it'll be a cold day in hell before they take my pride...
  • Deep South: Boondox' music is heavily based around these themes; particularly in the singles from his first two albums, "They Pray With Snakes" (from The Harvest), which is about backward hillbilly snake charmers, and "Inbred Evil" (from Krimson Creek), which is about a serial killer who is the evil product of incest, having murdered his parents, and kills anyone who comes around the woods where he resides. Mockery of hillbillies and rednecks is a reoccurring theme in Psychopathic lyrics.
  • Don't Go in the Woods: Several of his songs. Hell, you may never want to get within 50 feet of a tree after hearing some of his songs.
  • Drugs Are Bad: "Dope Boy" and "Pillin' Spree" are good examples.
  • Dubstep: His Halloween song for 2011 has a beat that was created by a Dubstep artist.
  • Evil Uncle: Boondox's real life uncle, WHO TRIED TO DROWN HIM WHEN HE WAS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD.
  • Gargle Blaster: Sippin' takes this to extremes.
  • Gorn: One of the best examples is "Red Mist" which is basically gore porn in song form.
  • Hell Gate: These are mentioned from time to time in some of his lyrics, but they never really get much focus.
  • Hillbilly Horrors: Oh good god, yes. So very much.
  • Horrorcore
  • Ironic Nursery Tune: Seven gives us this little gem:
    A tisket, a tasket
    The scarecrow's out his casket
    Turn out the lights and lock the door
    Prayin' that he passes
  • Mood Whiplash: On his Abbadon album the sad melancholic song Monster is followed by the upbeat and comedic My Night, which is then followed by the dark and creepy Black Eyed Kids.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The title of his most recent album is Abbadon. Go ahead and look up what it means.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: He's a scary Monster Clown scarecrow country rapper.
  • Scary Scarecrows: His image is heavily based around this as well.
  • Shout-Out: The Harvest contains a few lyrical references to Children of the Corn (1984), with Boondox referring to himself as "the scarecrow of Malachi". The album also has some samples from that movie as well, particularly in the intro and on "Red Mist".
  • Sweet Home Alabama: While Deep South imagery is played with, Boondox also uses this as well, in "Southern Nights", "Country Life" and "Heathen", for starters. The South has good and bad aspects to it.
    • The song "My Night" off of his new album also has elements of this.
    • "Sittin' On The Porch" off of "The Murder" seems to be an example too.
  • Torture Cellar: Many.
  • Villainous Incest: Mentioned often. Including his own origin song "Seven"
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: Like the other Psychopathic Records artists.
