I know people really like to take this shit to heart (ex: hack wilson, dont get mad, your who came to mind) when you aren't praising Crookeds music the way alot of people around here do, but on some real shit i dont really see anything special about him. He has a terrible flow, trying to fit as many words into one bar as possible and sometimes they dont rhyme or dont make sense, he has some bullshit punchlines and metaphors that aren't unnecessary (ex: if eatin niggas made you obese, i'd be the blob). I can bump a few of his tracks, nwa, this is how we do this, g'd up and banged out, im so crooked. But after listening to his last e.p's, he does not impress me. I think the reason for this is that he does not take time to write his verses, resorts to doing this shit off the top of his head and it just ends up sounding bad. I want to know what it is yall like so much about him. Challenge my opinion if you wish but do back it up, audio is appreciated.

"if eatin niggas made you obese, i'd be the blob"

You think this is bullshit?  He's just saying he's killed a lot of cats on the mic.

Crooked-I is dope but he has yet to impress on an artist level.  Like, his solo song material is lacking consistency compared to his freestyles.   I doubt his ability to construct a solid album.  There's no doubt he outshines most when put on a track with him but that's only so good.  If he can't take it to the next level than he isn't as great as many want him to be.

But Juice from BWS is straight ass.  Not sure how you can like him though not Crooked.  Juice has had like 3 good songs.

crooked i is dope but very overrated on this board. making a great album is part of being a great artist, and i frankly don't see much versatility from dude....i can take the karma hit, don't really care, just an opinion....as far as the whole versatility thing, i may be wrong on this seeing how i havent heard EVERY single song of his, so someone give more than one example of him spitting something with sum depth, something other than braggadocios gangsta metaphors and punchlines...

LMAO at this mentally disturbed fool comparin Roccet wit Crook..

You think this is bullshit?  He's just saying he's killed a lot of cats on the mic.

But Juice from BWS is straight ass.  Not sure how you can like him though not Crooked.  Juice has had like 3 good songs.

that's real talk! i've said it b4, n im sayin it again - just because ur a dope rapper, dont make u a good artist! Rap is just spittin, somethin u do - if u can do dat, dat doesn't guarantee u any platinum plaques.  LOL, if dat was the case, why G Rap, Chino XL & Canibus always went wood? U still have to learn the most important part of the creative-process of Hip Hop - creatin the music! Ur the dopest nigga of all time, spittin vicious toxic-bars, killin everybody in battles, sure dat's cool - but dat DON't mean shit!! n for dat reason alone, Crooked would probly never get as MTV/Major as he was on that Ashanti-remix.. dude can spit, but dat's it really.

there's only been a handful artists who managed to melt the true HipHop-element together wit big sales - Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls, Eminem - all 3 are really respected lyricists, dat also attracts the whte audience wit GOOD MUSIC.
u ain't never heard a Kool G Rap, Chino XL, Crooked I track, dat sounds "Hit" by "Hit"-standards, n to be honest wit ya, u never will.. most likely.

where did all this juice bws shit come from? I just asked a question. WHY do you niggas call him the greatest, he has a bullshit flow and some bullshit ass lines. I dont recall myself saying I was a juice or a bws fan. Some of y'all niggas need to fix your tampon, seems like you got the shit in backwards. and as for bws actually since you mentioned it, Clyde Carson > Crooked, Game > Crooked.

Crooked I is definately one of the greatest. His only flaw, IMO is that he uses alot, if not too many metaphors
