Crooked I – “The Other Side” (Freestyle)

09.26.12 5 years ago 6 Comments

“Slaughterhouse ain’t go platinum, I’m supposed to jump off of a bridge? Huh?”

A lot of people didn’t like Slaughterhouse’s Our House album, dubbing it too commercial and not authentic. On the other hand, others enjoyed hearing these four uber-talented lyricists stop rappity rapping for once and welcomed their attempt to crossover – something that’s alluded them their entire careers, collectively and individually.

Even though the Shady-made sophomore effort didn’t quite turn them into household names, the fact of the matter is these guys are still big picture successful, regardless of record sales. Furthering that optimistic take on his group’s current situation, Crooked I tacks on a verse to the one album cut he got left off of, “The Other Side.”

Instead of getting frustrated about the above and beyond, the LBC native delivers three minutes of his goosebump-giving status quo, saying he could care less about numbers because he’s living his dream – when he didn’t even expect to be living, at all.

No matter what you think of the man’s music or his group’s LP, you can’t complain about that.
