lmao, we all knew it tho... i am really suprised people still follow this guy, 10ish years no album. i stopped listening to crooked i in like 2002, when i got sick of waiting for "Say Hi To The Bad Guy"

So just because he's not releasing an album, you aren't going to listen to the music that gets posted online?  Every new joint gets posted on this forum even, I don't know how you can ignore them.   It takes just as much time to open a mp3 link as to type up a post.  You have missed out on alot of good music man. 

say you ordered some fries at a restaurant and the restaurant put one or two individual fuckin' french fries on each and every table in the place and told you to round 'em up...would you eat there or would you eat at a restaurant that gave you ONE muthafuckin' bag of fries?

quote of the year. nice one tanj.

but yeh, i aint up for collecting all these so called "dope" freestyles and remakes of songs. get a fucking album out! i may think of pickin it up. but like i said above i got sick and tired of waiting for a record from this guy, its been almost 10years since i was first checkin for this guy and i never got anythin. so once a record of his drops, i will take a look. but for now i aint bothered about a "announcement" or some bullshit "BOSS:2.7"...

edit: 400 posts!!  :banana_llama: :pimp:

I just think any buzz he had going for himself during and shortly after Death Row is gone. I feel like there is still a perception from people that he would do big numbers if he were to drop something this year, but he would have to have MAJOR marketing and promotion to have that and I don't know if he is going to get that at this point. I know in all the west coast forums Crooked is still a big deal but what about after you turn your computer off? I don't know. I just want him to put some dope material out and whatever it does, it does. I just think to lose that many years in not putting a official album out, it has hurt his buzz and it will take alot for it to get back to make others notice.

Ayo Tanj,

I'm not at my home computer at the moment, but I've got Young Boss, Vol. 2 without DJ tags on it.  I'll up it tomorrow.  Just remind me by either PM or posting here again, just in case.

VERY good point tanj. i personally haven't even really followed crooked i for this reason. i figure why even bother listening to dudes music if it is so inconsistent that it frustrates you? that's not what music is about...

i'll admit, i've only heard very few whack crooked songs. more than 60% of his shit that i heard is dope but i'm coo on gathering it up unless he gives me a reason to you know?

To me, the thing about Crooked is that his songs are all just decent, or 7/10 and 7.5/10 level. Most of them aren't weak, and he rarely comes weak...but for whatever reasons, he doesn't have many songs that just stand out like that.

word, but i think that's subjective. i've heard some amazing crooked shit. he adds ALOT to DPG posse cuts (both his tracks on SIAM are fire)

and I was really impressed with that song 'leave me alone'

What a lot of people don't know about Crooked I's earliest beginnings, is that Big C-Style, the creator of DPGC, was the one who more or less brought Crooked I to the masses in the L.A. underground scene.  After Virgin Records caught wind of the 19th St. compilation, they jumped on signing him right away.  When that failed to materialize, Crooked & C-Style were shopping for another label, and Dr. Dre had heard that Crooked was a free agent at the time and wanted to sign him to Aftermath.  Crooked was going to do it, but Dre told him that if Crook could wait about 6-8 months, he'd be more than happy to put him on, but during that time period, Dre was busy working with Eminem.  Crooked couldn't wait that long though, because it wasn't paying to wait.  He had to eat somehow, so not too long after that, Daz approached him about signing to DPG Records.  Which then in turn led him to Death Row after that.

It makes me wonder though how much better Crooked I could be today, had he waited those 6-8 months for Dre?  That Dre magic always seems to never fail when it comes to new talent.  And 1997-98 when Crooked was a free agent, he sure could've benefitted from Dre in a big way I think.

but also Crooked could of gone 2 ways. He could of gone the snoop, em, 50 etc. route, or the knoc, hittman, king tee etc. route (not talent wise, popularity wise)

i agree with the math part, but not so sure on the mainstream comment. I think he can do decent #s with a club banger (which is pretty obvious will be the 1st single IF he releases an album). It all depends on the quality of the club banger. Look at Mims, he gonna do at least 300,000 total based off a BEAT (which is good enough #s).

I totally agree with this statement that dude adds a lot as a guest MC. He killed on both those cuts. I just haven't heard anything of his solo that has had the same kinda impact on me.

So uh. . . . .where's this announcement already?
