I expected more from a crooked I album. the guy is a lyrical genius.maybe my expectation was to high but I don't like the album. vegas on biz is a good song. but the album is getting good reviews so I guess it worked out for crooked. its good to see him getting good reviews tho.

'crook n porter' is the closest thing to a dre beat on here and it's a pretty ill track. production on there is way ahead of most this album.

This is garbage. Weak beats. Sounds like another Hiphop weekly. Very disappointed.

* Deleted 30 something off-topic replies, take the T.I. vs. Crook discussion elsewhere, this is an album discussion thread..

On topic:

this isn't meant to be a proper solo album is it?

sounds like another EP to me, quality wise. and a lesser one a that. the direction and quality of the production is sub-par, you could make a much better full length using the best tracks from previous EPs.

On point.
This is wildly incoherent, just like expected.. sounds like a mixtape, with some decent tracks thrown in..
Crook for sure possess the talent, but he needs a better production budget, direction, an executive producer in other words..

how's it sound like a mixtape if there are no tags, shout outs, stolen beats or pointless skits?


it's 11 songs, 10 solo.  all original beats.  that's what i call an album..and while there are a few average beats most of this shit is fire.  crook n porter, yodo, vegas on biz, the track with tech etc. are all bangers

very disappointed this is his first CD that I can actually go buy in a store and it's average as fuck :-\

Crook should have tried keeping whatever beats Slaughterhouse passed on from their album, these beats are on the same level as what I used to make on Fruity Loops/Kinetic back in the day

for real, even a friend of mine posted that on Facebook and I thought to myself "of all songs he could have posted..."

the only good tracks that I kept on my iPhone were "Vegas On Biz", "Let Me Get It", "Apex Predator", and "No Sleep Gang"
