Crooked I is Hip Hop Official’s Artist of the Week

I was just talking with a couple buddies today about Crooked I. I feel like I have slept on this dude for soooo long, and now I’m paying for it. Crooked I might be one of the nastiest emcees I’ve ever heard with wordplay. I was telling my buddy Motz today that I don’t even think it’s fair that Crooked gets to rhyme because he’s so good. Every time that I listen to the Slaughterhouse record it seems like more often than not his verses stick out like crazy. Crooked I is known for his connection with Death Row, and his Hip Hop Weekly tracks where he released a track every week of the year for a year. This guy is a fucking beast on the microphone, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone quite like him. Do yourself a favor, watch this video and click the Hip Hop Weekly link and be amazed.
