Peace to the Gods and the Earths of The Wu Family. To Arlene at RZA Productions for helping this project come to light and to Divine for doing what he does. Peace to all the DJ's and the fans across the country who support me because they understand and appreciate my cause - A just cause. The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel is the second studio album by horrorcore supergroup Gravediggaz. Released on October 14, 1997, the album has a more socially conscious sound to it and is considerably calmer than its predecessor, and features heavy production input by the RZA and his production team the Wu Elements.

As a whole project, The Pick, The Sickle, and The Shovel is not bad by any means. It’s extremely solid. I think it falls short of 6 Feet Deep but I wouldn’t pass this up. By their third album, RZA and Paul had left and sadly the Grym Reaper, Poetic, had passed away from his battle with cancer. Some slight issues hold this back back a good album from ¾ of the Gravediggaz isn’t the worst LP to bump on a Halloween night. Hear one of the better pieces of it. Thoughts if you’ve listened to it before?

Between Gravediggaz first album, 6 Feet Deep, and the second, The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel, RZA became the most influential producer in hip-hop, as his productions for the various Wu-Tang Clan side projects established his distinctive, skeletal style as rap's cutting edge. So, it's a little surprising that The Pick doesn't showcase RZA, even though there are several tangential Wu members on the disc

Studio album by Gravediggaz. Spin (12/97, p. 160) - 7 (out of 10) - "The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel is less hyperbolic satire than playfully serious caution-for Gravediggaz, the ghetto's particular nightmare has now come to Main Street. Grieving over lost lovers, friends, and family, the group observes the culture of death as part of the everyday landscape guest rappers Killah Priest, Omen, and Hell Razor spin oblique horror stories from ghetto hell over bruising beats by RZA and Prince Paul.

The second full-length Gravediggaz album The Pick, the Sickle and the Shovel was less humorous, dealing more with social and political issues; it also used calmer and more conventional production. Prince Paul played a considerably smaller role in the making of this album, with many of the production duties now taken care of by RZA and his Wu-Tang affiliates (including True Master and 4th Disciple). A bootleg Gravediggaz album surfaced in 1998, called Scenes From The Graveyard. It featured seven unreleased tracks plus some remixes from the first two albums
