lol did they add more bass to dream big?

after a quick skip through the snippets this sounds extremely average from a production viewpoint. all boring, slow beats. the jim gittum track sounds the best by a long way. no doubt crooked is spitting heat but he needs to get on some better production.

fail!

Just like Block Obama Vol 1, this is very AVERAGE

Track 6 sounds boring, slow and average. If BOSS sounds like this, then I no longer care for it.

I'll download this when it leaks, 'American Me' sounds the best, appart from Dream Big.

Still Tha Row, So Damn Hood, Dollaz In My Hands, I Love The Ghetto, and Str8 Bosses are his 4 best tracks in that order, he should stay with that style.

LMAO, Still the row and So Damn Hood??? Are you serious?? Those 2 are considered two of Crooks worst by many... But ok, your entitled to your own opinion I guess... Even if its a ridiculous one...

I like the sound of these btw, much better than BO1 already...

So Damn Hood was Crooked I's biggest ever songs, it had massive buz in 2003 on hot 97 and online, crooks never had another song played on nyc radio, thats how good so damn hood is.

Block Obama 1 and 2 mixtapes just sound weak compared to So Damn Hood

I been in the pac scene for 11 yrs, I was an OG on MTF thats musicfantalk.com forums which was one of the 1st pac forums and I was on TB for 3 yrs before jon peters banned me from hitemup.com. many 2pac rare tracks that leaked are tagged with Rhyan D...well thas me.... i leaked a few rares bk in the days on TB....

I been bumping Crook since '98 easily and dude is in my Top 5, so I'm not hating, but let's be honest. The only reason Hot 97 was showing "So Damn Hood" love was because it was hand delivered by Death Row as part of the labels second coming. It wasn't necessarily, just about Crook and just about the song, is more like "Death Row is BACK".

I think this is the "test" project. I'm happy they are finally standing up and making a move. They will see that there IS an audience and it feels good to sell something, LOL. The fans just have to come through and do their job by copping this... or at least the songs they like. This is a good sign though, a new direction.

Yeah it will be more satisfying overall to just bump the full songs one after another.

Previews are good though, at least people that are non-fans can decide if they want to purchase or not.

Oh, I have just listened to the Block Obama again. Damn, I realized one thing. I don't give a damn if he'll release the B.O.S.S. or not. If he doesn't want to become a well-known artist, then it's his own thing. I say he will still give us his music and this is the point. It doesn't matter if the songs are on mixtapes or LPs, music is music.

That's a pretty good beat. I don't think it would play in the club that well, but it beat pretty nice on some subs. I'd have to hear how Crooked I would rap to it to say whether or not it has mass appeal.

press release:
Acclaimed rapper Crooked I has released his highly anticipated digital E.P. Block Obama II (Treacherous Records/INgrooves) today, November 4, 2008. Block Obama II is released in conjuction with the U.S. Presidential election, and is available at all digital retailers, including iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, Napster, Emusic and Mobile Carriers.

Block Obama II is Crooked I’s first exclusive E.P., and follows on the heels of his street anthem 'Dream Big’. Block Obama II features guest appearances from Akon, Knoc-Turnal and Das of Interscope's new R&B trio i15. With production by multi-platinum hit maker Rick Rock.

The delivery of Block Obama II, sees Crooked I start his own digital label, in a partnership with INgrooves, one of the leading providers of digital distribution. This year, INgrooves entered into a strategic partnership with Universal Music Group. "We are very excited about working with Crooked I and being a part of more projects from him. I believe Crooked is hands down one of the most talented and prolific artist from the West Coast" said Abe Batshon of INgrooves.

Long Beach, CA rapper Crooked I has earned a reputation as one of hip-hop’s most gifted lyricists, and innovative artists. His much-hyped Hip-Hop Weekly series, a collection of weekly freestyles released online for a whole year, spawned several imitations and earned Crooked I cover stories on two of the biggest urban music publications; XXL magazine labelled him one of Hip-Hop's Next Superstars or "Leaders of the New School" on the cover of their November 07' issue, and in August 08' on the cover of Vibe Magazine, both Crooked I and Jay Electronica were labelled as "Internet Guerrillas", with an article discussing the Hip-Hop Weekly series and his approach to marketing on the internet.

“The Internet rap superstar” (VIBE), has collaborated with hip-hop’s greatest and spit alongside a cast of artists as diverse as Ja Rule, Ashanti, The Game, Boo Yaa Tribe, and the late great 2Pac Shakur. He returns to the forefront of the music scene with his official exclusive E.P. Block Obama II out today, November 4, 2008. For more information on Crooked I, please check out www.DynastyEntGroup.com and www.myspace.com/crookedi.

Damn...I thought Circle Gang was banging! Sounds great in a system too. Definatelly one of my favs on the album. I thought Kobe came corect imo too..American Me, You Should be COB, Do It like me, Can I Talk to you, and On my momma Im a Boss are all dope too. Thought 3 bitches was a big let down, wasnt feelin knocs hook to much, nor the the beat. But I love the new Drum pattern on Dream Big. Sounds so much better now.

Yo, I haven't been as big a Crook fan as most of y'all in this thread are.....

I remember a version of Still The Row (I personally don't know if it's the remix or the original, but Virginia Slim is on it).......

I thought that was one of the dopest Crooked I songs I had ever heard until.... Block Obama 1 is one of the sickest albums I've heard in a long time, ESPECIALLY THE SLOWER SONGS......

You fucks are concerned with dancin in the club, not with lyricism and content, cause every beat is viscious, the only songs I didn't like on BO 1 are the chick songs and the Rappers Aint shit track (even though his lyrics were dope, I've never liked that beat) Everything else is fire, especially the slow songs.....

Based on BO1, I will by BO2.... on the 15th... (all my 9 to 5 folks gotta feel me on that one!)

My alternate review...

1) Circle Gang Anthem feat. Kobe - 4/5

The beat is crazy hot, something original aside from the usual crap that fills the radios these days. When it comes to the hook, I guess you either love it or hate it. I think Kobe did his thing, it's not what you would be expecting after the first listen, but after that it's hot. Great opener track for this EP.

2) On My Mama I'm A Boss - 4/5

Not the BEST Rick Rock beat I've heard, but it's still hot, especially that it changes the drum pattern up about 8 bars into the verse. I heard a rumor that this was ORIGINALLY going to be a single for a previous version of BOSS, but don't take my word for that. However, if that's the case, it would have served it's purpose. It gets you hyped, but Crook still comes correct on it. Not his usual lyrical self, but he spits an awkward flow that oddly enough fits the beat perfectly. I give this one daily spins.

3) American Me - 4/5

Crook stuck with the Obama theme on this track. Politically inspired lyrics for the streets and doesn't hold anything back. I thought that Jim did a good job with the beat, but it wasn't what I was expecting at all. I think the different layers of drums and little effects here and there are what save the production for me. Jim's a hell of a producer, but I thought he was going to flip the sample a little hotter. This isn't your everyday "bump-in-the-ride" track, but it's some well thought out lyrics and a great overall package.

4) 3 Bitches feat. Knoc-turnal - 2/5

This is pretty much the downfall of the EP in my opinion. The beat is way too awkward for me and makes it a little difficult for Crook to stay on pace with it. He does come correct lyrically and I guess that goes without saying, but I'm sorry Knoc fans, I wasn't feeling the hook at all. It was just... annoying.

5) Do It Like Me feat. Das - 3.5/5

Another track with commercial appeal. However, I guess if you reject this type of track in general your going to hate it anyway. I thought the beat was hard though, it was a nice mixture with the R&B hook. Crook comes correct on it, but there were points where I was thinking "Ehh, you might have dumbed it down for no reason there". The track would have gotten a higher rating, but after a couple weeks of listening to it, it isn't as hot as I originally thought. I'd still like to hear Crook do more songs like this in the future though.

6) Can I Talk To You!? - 4.5/5

One of the best tracks on the EP if not the best. It may not be a perfect track, because the beat could have been a little more hyped up, but I can live with it. Crook is straight lyrical on this song and shows off how flawless his delivery is. I liked how they kept it Hip Hop at the end with the scratching, nice to hear that since it's so forgotten these days. Great song.

7) You Should Be From COB feat. GL Smooth - 4/5

I could dig it, nice laid back track with a West Coast feel to it. The hook was tight too, matched the feeling of the track completely. I think both the Horse Shoe Gang and Sauce did their thing on the track, but I've heard better from them in the past. Crook pretty much steals the track as expect, but it's too bad his verse isn't until the end. I was really expecting more from the Horse Shoe Gang, but the beat and the hook saved me from giving the song a worse rating.

8) Dream Big feat. Akon - 3.5 / 5

Don't get me wrong, I love the track Dream Big, but I'm not quite sure I'm feeling what they did with the drums on this "remake". I don't think it needed the 808's and the raging southern style hi-hats. I thought if anything they could have made the original incredible if they added a smooth West Coast flava bassline, but I guess they didn't see that. It's hot, I mean, if you can over the new drum pattern, but it's a little awkward. You can tell the track was meant to be slower paced and they tried to hype it up for commercial appeal, but I'm not so sure it works. It gets the rating it gets because I love the original and it's essentially the same song, but not breathtaking.

9) Dream Big (Remix) feat. Akon - 3.5/5

I think this track is actually pretty hot and I don't have too much negativity to say about it other than the original is hotter. However, with that being said, Komplex brought a different perspective to this song with this beat. He made what was originally a heartfelt, chill track into a street banger and it worked to an extent. I think the only thing holding back what he tried to do is the fact that you can tell Crooked and Akon originally spit to a slower more laid back beat. It's hard to take an acapella and then re-build the beat and get the same effect. I mean, people do it all the time, but I'm not so sure Kompo did his best. I like it a little better than the other version of Dream Big on this EP though. Only problem is... why is it clean? LOL.

Overall - 3.5

I give it an average rating even though there were songs I was REALLY feeling. Mind you this is coming from a HUGE Crooked I fan. The only reason it got this rating is to be fair in how I rated some of the albums downfalls. For example that 3 Bitches track really hurts the albums rating. Also, in my HONEST opinion there were no tracks that were PERFECT and I know Crook is capable of delivering a perfect track. However, if you are a Crook fan or not a Crook fan you will dig this project. Don't go by my overall rating, because as you can see there is fire on here. You will definitely get your money's worth. However, I will say something that many will not. I'm feeling the first Block Obama a little more. I think Crook was more lyrical on the first one and that's always my primary concern. Those of you looking for Crook on original beats will love this. Give it a spin and support the artist.

+1 for the alternate review  ;)
I like to point out that I´m Crooked/Komplex/Jim Gittum fan.... I guess I didn´t feel the "sound/style" they used on this one.  :P ;)


No doubt, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. It WAS a different sound for Crooked, so I can see how it would throw people off. +1
