Crooked I’s found a good groove with guitar-driven tracks. First, Long Beach’s finest tore down Wayne’s “How To Love” and now he dusts off folk favorite Tracy Chapman’s most famous tune to spin autobiographical bars regarding his come-up.
Crooked I – “Fast Car (Freestyle)”
Sometimes I rhyme slow sometimes I rhyme quick.
This guy is too talented to be releasing the shitty EP’s & mixtapes he be putting out.
He needed Slaughterhouse more then any of them other cats.
Kind of an out of left field instrumental from Crooked but he did his thing as usual! As far as Amp’s comment you tripping about the EP’s & mixtapes sans Mr. Pigface Weapon Waist!

So suggest something, cause Crooked’s solo joints that he actually pushes usually leave me “Zzzzz” about halfway through em.
Hey Amp. I won’t speak on the EP’s and mixtapes as much as I will on the content of his “supposed” singles that either leaked or he dropped to keep his name relevant. I think his latest push is behind “Everyday”, which aside from the chemist line is a pretty dope song (the video and beat carry it, though).
“Villain”, “Dream Big” ft. Akon, “Everythang”, “New West Anthem” which I think was poised to be his commercial hit back in 2007. Beyond that, he was slick as fuck on “Creased Khaki Flow” back in 2005. I’m not arguing there’s a few chinks in Crooked’s catalog at times, but overall he delivers a better product than damn near most MC’s. But I’m also a fan so I’m a little biased. :P
I’m gonna look around for them joints, Nick. Cause out of everyone on that Slaughterhouse LP, Crooked impressed me the most…maybe cause I expected the least from him.
