crooked stans are like a cult, nothing they say is without extreme bias and stupidity, just check the posters above me


Why can't people just have a discussion without being stans or dickriders?
read the posts and there are honest opinions on Crooked I being made.
u seem obsessed with logging on to dubcc and searching for Crooked I threads to post bullshit.
accept that some people actually think he is talented, clearly you don't, fine ... move on.


U can't Reason with the fag. He's 1 of the few who tried to to audition for Doggys Angels. Only reason he hates Crooked I is because he is from Long Beach, Is twice as Lyrical as Snoop, and still has a buzz despite not releasing a album while Snoop Sold out on every aspect of his Carrier. Only Respect Snoop Can legitly get is him giving back to his Area via all the programs he does. That's only reason I won't say Shit about Snoop outside of his Musical Decisions, Cause At least he is doing it proper. You look at these so called "more real" motherfuckers in the game. They don't do shit. I'm talking about people who made huge numbers yet not a single thing gets done in return, not even 4 fans. So Like every other person. Fuck Em.

I wasn't a huge Crooked I fan.. but at some point I realised he's probably the most talented MC from West Coast ever, if we only talk about skills on the mic. D.O.C. might've been the one but that car accident kinda ruined his career. Ice Cube is the best political MC ever. & 2Pac is the best artist ever.

he ain't got the discography

does he need to have had released a album to be the greatest rapper alive thats spittin...mo
his songs are 10 times better than anythin wayne can, has, or will ever do
and alot of those were songs given away for free
then people will reply with waynes given away hundreds of mixtapes......he can give away millions of mixtapes to his martians but hes a wack rapper

and then people say we tired of crooked doin the gangsta shit....hes from the westcoast
he does gangsta shit but includes story tellin, and much more

he doesnt use multimillion dollar producers or spend a gang on beats

thats the diference with crooked vs others
he saves the beat wack or not...if the beat is wack he will likely most of the time sound better than the beat

the beat has to save wayne, ross, akon, snoop, etc...cuz they arent dope rappers
damn u still havent logged off...ur hurting everyone with all this wack shit u drop, it hurts more then getting the swine flu

''Fuck a whole song, I give a fuck if it's a feature

Snoop Dogg coudn't spit this shit even if he tried.
He's still a MC, fuck dumbing down.

I agree with the posts about him being a great MC but a wack artist.

SMH at people crying over Say Hi To The Bad Guy to be leaked, those songs he did on deathrow were hot garbage.

Dope MC, not really a legend like the guys who built MCing (Kool G Rap, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, KRS, etc), but an awesome lyricist, like Canibus, Chino, Pharoahe Monch, etc


I don't think he's a wack artist either... it's just that to appeal to a LOT of people you need to dumb your shit down and have a "cool" well-marketed image and some really catchy choruses.
Your regular kids on the street won't get complex flows and lyrics and metaphors, and they don't want a song that is like one long verse... it doesn't mean that artist is "wack", it just means that most people aren't knowledgeable enough to "get" the lyrics.
Kool G Rap never had a platinum album, but his joints are classics and he's one of the greatest of all time, always mentioned.
MC Hammer went like 10x platinum because he knew how to make a catchy chorus, but he's not on any "best MC" lists and his joints aren't classics.

No they're not.  Wayne clearly has something crooked doesn't.  if what wayne is doing is so easy why hasn't crooked done it?  everyone stay hating on those that blow big but if it were that easy to make it then everybody wouldn't.

NOBODY's sayin his music is "wack" as in literarly - we all like it. it's just dat Crooked clearly dont like the "backpack"-environment he's currently in - Crooked is a mc, but he wants want everybody else - to boss up, his own empire, fame etc etc

n if he wants dat - he have to simply "just dumb down" his content, basicaly. and create "music". LOL
or he could try to make it without losin anythin from his persona - both Eminem and Jigga did it.. but dat's almost impossible for a rapper. Either ur a dope "rapper", or a dope "artist".. get it?

n for the record, MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This" is the biggest Hip Hop-record of all time... Case closed

also, the reason why Crooked don't have dat "great"-title yet - is because there's lotta credentials dat an mc needs to add to his belt in order to get dat title - Crooked is tight as a muddafucca, BUT - ther's no music, no album, no nothin.. 10+ years in the game, and nothin.. u cant be the GOAT, without no albums, no classics, no reviews, no legacy - if dat's the case, we might as well add my rapping neighbour to the "Best Of the Best"-list LOL

if crooked were to do tpain akon shit then hed be on tv

I doubt it, and Im a big Crook fan, but he isnt marketable like that. First off, hes gettin old, which is never good for mainstream audiences (read: little girls), he was voted ugliest member of slaughterhouse, mainstream audiences like pretty boys. I think he couldve been a mainstream artist when he was on Tha Row, but its a little too late now...

That, however, doesnt take anything away from the fact hes one of the dopest, if not, THE dopest rapper out west. You can like or dislike his songs, but you cant deny his talent for flow and wordplay, not a lot of westcoast rappers have that same talent, even all the new guys, jay rock, nipsey, its all about 'Im so tough I shoot you, all the while hollering soowoop', the shit kinda rhymes, but it doesnt have the wordplay Crook uses.

And last but not least, fuck the mainstream anyway, that aint good music. Thats pop music, I dont wanna hear that shit. Again Im a big fan of Crook, and I wish him all the success, but when he starts making them poppy autotune songs(or whatever is the hype that moment), Ill never buy another mixtape/ep/album again.

On the other hand, someone who has never put out an album, or had any major release, or TV slots in his 15 year rap career, sure does get a talk, discussions, audience, and anticipation surrounding him

Crooked I on Tha Row could have been huge had Tha Row not been blackballed. He was more colorful and marketable IMO
