they put it up for free on the smh records website, guess they gave in to the internet after someone leaked the CD

Bump it over the weekend. Some cool songs, but nothing that stands out or will continue to be played by the end of January.

I find it funny no one has really shared their thoughts on this mixtape experience.

I tried very hard to listen to this and it's got no substance to it. The production is good, however Crooked just has boring raps over the beats. No excitement. Glad I passed on this so I wasn't burned again like his last album.

I was a big Crooked fan, but his new stuff is getting worse. Let's be real here.

I give them credit for the marketing calling this a piece of art, but that doesn't help a weak CD.

That's true but listen to this

Does it say something in the credits about it or is it just the same sample from a completely different track?

$ 9.99 + $ 14.99 for shipping overseas? seriously? if it's as disappointing as his previous releases this is not reasonable at all. don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I don't like his music, I'm just wondering if he really expects people paying $ 25 for a mixtape


comes fux wit the lamb album then...only 7.99 for international shipping (and 1 cent for the album). 8 bux well spent

I have to be honest, I'm a little surprised to see people passing over this project and assuming that it's just a generic effort. This has the most content and diverse topics of any Crooked project in recent memory.

You get the introspective / motivational songs with records such as "Sick of Being Broke", "Know Thy Self" and "Lift Me Up". Then you have the tracks that are simply about the bars such as "Drum Murder Part 2" or "No Plan B". You get the classic street anthems with songs like "Hardest In The Game" and "Fallen Rap Gods". Those that are into that West Coast / gangster rap style should enjoy "The Originals" or "Move Like A G Do". That's only the tip of the ice berg...

As there is literally a song for everyone over some of the best production he's had in a long time, what more else could you ask for? Not to mention, Crook sounds hungry again on this one. I think that people need to realize that 2015 Crooked I is not the same artist as 1998 - 2002 Crooked I. He's evolved as not only an artist, but as a person. So, please don't dismiss this project, go into it with an open mind. I think that is part of the whole "KXNG CROOKED" persona. It's not necessarily just a gimmick for the project, I think he wants people to listen to the music with a fresh perspective.

If you don't like it though, it may just not be your style. And that's fine too. Can't please everyone.  8)

The original track seems to be Lamont Dozier - Rose. http://www.whosampled.com/sample/2804/Shyne-Foxy-Brown-More-or-Less-Lamont-Dozier-Rose/. ... but the beats are so similar that there must be another source. Do u know which track it's from?

I listened to the Shyne track more than a hundred times so at first I didn't prefer Fallen Rap Gods over it. It grows on me tho.

Sex, Money & Hip Hop is a really dope album, I don't regret that I ordered it a couple of days before they offered it as a free download. #COB effex is right that this album is much better than most of the previous projects

It's mixtape quality. Rushed. No one will be talking about this in a few months.

Crooked is a great Emcee, but his tracks on here sound like he's rap battling over a beat. The songs need a good hook, limited lyrics, polished production.

Mixtape....Just know that before you buy it. Mixtape Experience was just a fancy word for marketing.
