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'

-T

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?

I used to post on the Death Row message board almost religiously. Daz was still on Death Row at the time in '99 and he also had his DPG Records thing with "Crooked Eye" as one of the artists, but for some reason, he signed with DR and then Daz left less than 6 months later.
