cuz hes one of the best to ever touch a mic and has pretty much wrecked the mic almost every single time hes touched the mics
and snoop dont have that thats why he pays people to come onto sites to defend his muzik....defend his tpain type muzik
how you gon go from aint nuthin but a g thang to sexual eruption?
hes in love...all of a sudden hes in love and he wasnt in love back then? lol
snoop doesnt even crack the top 25 best rappers to spit of all time'
crooked might be in the top 15...of course snoop the KING is gon be mad
al snoop can do is hate but
crooked not havin an album but havin the skillz he has>>>>>snoops catologue





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

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
hatin, in any form, whether it be on Crooked I or Snoop Dogg, is really stupid - when discussing West Coast-music (READ AGAIN "WESTCOAST-MUSIC"). "Opinions" are always welcome, since it can evolve into healthy and relevant debates -- which is basicaly the #1 reason, why the board's got all of us visitors checking in every once in awhile..
"Hatin" on the other hand, is something totally different - and makes the person "hatin", look unintelligent, and usually gives the impression - dat he or she is an ugly bullyd, ginger-kid wit freckless, who most def is still in it's teens

thank u

Ok, not sure that this thread is very constructive anymore, but here is my 2 cents...

I've been a fan since the late 90's, and Crooked does a lot of things that set him apart from other rappers:

* Style - This has changed a lot over the years, but to me, he has only gotten better. There are at least 3 distinct styles: pre-DR, DR, post-DR. Giving this much variety is rare in a rapper. Some people want a rapper to stay the same, but I think Crook has only gotten better with his experimentation. Sure, sometimes it doesn't work, but most of the time it does
* Mic Presence - Whether you love him or hate him, he's got it. Not all "successful" rappers do. Old rappers have lost it
* Word play - If you are into word play, I don't think you can find much better. Crook is incredibly creative and cracks me up with some of the insane shit he says. Examples: "muthafuckin w" "low profiles", "big dreams (hhw)"
* Flow - He can rap slow, fast or double-time, even in the same song. He can flow better than the original MC's can on some of the tracks. Examples: "clik clak" "djs and mcs", "uh oh"
* Rhyme scheme - Dude can out rhyme pretty much any MC out today. Examples: "fo shizzle freestyle", "Creased Khaki Flow", "uh oh (hhw)". Crook makes rhyming look so easy that it is almost transparent to the listener. Other rappers look like they try really hard to rhyme by comparison.
* Hip hop weekly - Pretty damn creative. It's refreshing to see rappers try something new rather than just copy off each other. The current state of hip-hop is incestuous at best with its club music and "glam rap"
* Content - He might not speak as deep as Pac, but his content is definitely inspired and fresh most of the time. He has quite a range: "one mic (hhw)", "freak", "u shoulda made a phone call" "circle game anthem"
* Huge library - For not having an album out, Crook has a huge amount of material to choose from
* Freestyle - He can do the off the dome shit really well. Example: Power 106 he did it for about 6 minutes
* Battle - I've only heard that he fucks people up in real battles. He'd hold his own on 8 mile. Frankly, the only person who I think could battle him is a young Eminem. Supernat ain't hard enough (even though I like him). On wax battles, he stays on topic rather than just merely telling the other rappers to eat a dick.

For all of those reasons above, he makes other rappers seem basic.

Yes...
.... he doesn't have an official album
.... he says C.O.B way too much
.... he talks about guns way too much
.... he needs to work on his storytelling and production. As others have said, he needs to make more "real" songs, not just raps

But...
.... he has always brought something new to the table and is one of the biggest contributors to hip-hop musically
.... he doesn't make only one type of music
.... he outshines anyone he's featured with (minor exception on sickology 101)
.... he raps about current events and shit outside of the ghetto or club
.... for as much variety and content as he does, a surprising amount doesn't sound forced or awkward
.... for people who like west coast, he reps it well and is something to be proud of
.... he has substance in his raps. he's not just trying to get rich off of a new dance or catch phrase

Crook ain't perfect, but he's got a lot more wins than losses than most rappers. Sly Boogy has a lot of potential to beat Crooked, but not enough content. Next to 2Pac, Tech N9ne and Crook tie in a distant 2nd place for me.

Ok, you guys can go back to your Snoop bashing.........

LOL @ people worrying about whether or not Crooked is marketable to little girls. You really think that's Crooked's target audience, come on now.

I was commenting on a statement made before, but yes I think Crook would like to be in the mainstream if he could, simply because thats where the big bucks are...

Again, Im a Crook fan, been one for years, only thing I dont like about him, is the fact hes yelling COB in EVERY GODDAMN SONG....

There is a difference between being mainstream and being a sell out though. Crooked isn't worried about catering to the teeny-bopper audience. In the event that they end up liking his music, I suppose that's an added bonus. Look at artists like Soulja Boy, New Boyz, etc (aka the ring-tone rappers) that are tailored made for the middle school to high school generation. A dude like Crooked, may have goals to create records suitable for the radio or mainstream, but that doesn't mean that he's trying to sacrifice his integrity either, feel me?

Let's look at all his singles, "So Damn Hood", "Boom Boom Clap", "New West Anthem", "Dream Big", "Guess Who's Back". While a lot of these songs are catchy, the only one that really stands out as being a cross-over to teeny boppers is "Dream Big". I mean, people said it was obvious that Crooked was trying to go mainstream with "Mr. Pig Face Weapon Waist". Yes, there is some great songs on there like, "U Shoulda Made A Phone Call", but content-wise, that song isn't watered down one bit.

I really don't think we have to worry about Crooked watering down his material. Now, that doesn't mean that he can't do slow jams or anything of that nature. I just don't think he's going to release something that a record label is forcing him to drop, that he wouldn't otherwise stand behind.

IMO Crooked I is the second best in the West after Ras Kass. RK is jus unfortunate to hav experienced the shit he went thru otherwise u lil girls wouldn't b talkin Crooked I as the best rapper here out west. Truly speakin if u are a fan of hip hop you'll understand hw Ras Kass eats Crook any day n hw Crook comes 2nd best on the coast. I like Crook bt don't over praise dude, there are cats out ther who can give him a hard time any day. New cats like Wordsmith frm frontline, even older dude like Murs and Mc Ren are tough competition for Crook.

Very interesting thread! I think i know what dude is talking about! Crooked has always been at the top level when it comes to lyricism! He can compete with anyone in this planet lyrically! Sometimes crooked I will throw people off with lyrics like  the example of the blob! I actually thought it was pretty clever but many people wont understand the point and thought of some rhymes! As far as a complete artist? I think that is where Crooked I might fall short to many people. He has never proven to make tracks like say 2Pac or Biggie has! Tracks that will give u chills! Deep tracks that get you in the soul! I mean 2Pac was a master at that! A Poet! Crooked's flows sometimes cant really express that sentimental emotion or hardcore passion! I mean he tries but you wont get the same result or feeling from other artist! Crooked I is a true MC and im glad he is in the west! ill throw him in against any dude at any time! But i doubt that peeps will ever recognize or label him as a potential greatest rapper of all time rapper! You need more than just raw lyrics or raw flow! You need something that the greats had that unfortunately cant be learned or be taught!

There is a difference between being mainstream and being a sell out though.

I never said Crooked sold out, and Im glad he didnt.

As you said yourself, he tried to appeal to the mainstream with songs like So Damn Hood and Dream Big, trying to mix a poppy hook with lyrics, didnt work that well though... The point I was trying to make is that I think Crook wont ever really appeal to the mainstream, whether he sells out or not, simply because hes too old, and he the self admitted ugliest member of slaughterhouse. He could ghostwrite for anybody in the game, but hes just not destined to be on the screen himself. Which is fine with me, because although there indeed is a difference between being mainstream and selling out, you rarely see it happen.

if he isn't versatile enough to do a song with that type of emotion behind it, something u can feel, not just say 'damn, that was a dope punch line!', how can he go from beyond anything more than a dope punchline/metaphor rapper? u let heads in a west coast forum tell it, he's the best ever, but u go to a universal hip-hop board and its another story....he's classified in the same category as a chino xl/canibus/ras kass/vakill type mc....all of them are very similar, whether anyone in here wants to admit it or not there isn't much separating crooked from that group of dope mc's outside of him being a little more gangsta....its all opinion

aite first off...good lookin on the debate and you comin this way wit respect...so ima throw some back
but crookeds intensity is what makes him dope
its not that ras or chino isnt dope but his dopeness surpasses theirs and they prolly know but cant do nuthin bout
people need to realize crooked is a walkin mic machine and is one of the dopest to ever touch a mic period
dont mean ras is str8 wack...but on crookeds level no
but ras prolly knows this
but yeah ras and crook are above many rappers level
ras kass and crook and the rest are below them IMO
again good lookin for the debate
and where im from has nuthin to do with it
yeah im from the westcoast...yeah i love la...etc...but im not sayin crooked is the best cuz im from the same coast as him...lol
crooked is dope and at the same time im bein honest in sayin cube, game, snoop have made wack muzik for the same coast i am reppin





til then or if he never does he isnt? lol
damn crooked you got a long way to go
