iTunes Review

From his early days with the post-Dre Death Row, through his countless mixtapes and much-loved "Hip Hop Weekly" series, and onto his current stardom as a member of the Slaughterhouse collective, Crooked I has had a colorful career over the last 15 years. On In None We Trust–The Prelude, he serves up seven joints loaded with rowdy verses about the code of the streets, glossy clubs, and his self-proclaimed status as one of the greatest emcees working today. His gift with wordplay is most evident on the horn-propelled "Diamond in the Back," with sample rhymes like: "Presidential Rolie with that Barack appeal/I ball and kick it like I'm on a Ghana soccer field." Other standouts include the banger "Drum Major" (rocked with organ and live drums) and "Goin' Bad," which flips a devastating beat reminiscent of CNN's "Bang Bang."

Best EP Yet #COB


Sutt sutt 2x needs a video and radio play asap

Crook needs to go back

Didn't like the beat selection this time around. Same with his last EP. Getting too "electronic" sounding. I think Crook sounds best when he's rocking to DJ Premier, or old school Dre sounding beats. Not that the dude shouldnt try new things or try to branch out more, but im just not digging these. Also, his lyrics lately are starting to depart from his introspective depth. Here he feels like he's just in full party mode, tryin to give jay and ye competition in the swag department instead of being that hardcore lyricist that'll tear anybody up that steps to him. I love Crook so dont anybody be attackin me on a hater trip. I vouch for Crooked in all seriousness to be the best rapper alive. But that's when i'm getting tracks like "the kite", "can I talk to you", and his grindin' freestyle. I need stuff like that to prove my point, and with this EP i'm not given much. Of coarse there are a few highlights here like crook's crazy flow in "no competition", and "Drum Murder" with horse shoe gang. Worth checking out for Crooked I fans, but I wanna get back to that hip hop weekly rawness.
