Kxng Crooked – “Come Clean Freestyle” (Video)

While Joey Bada$$ spoke from the heart on Hip-Hop’s old guard holding back the new-new (here), let’s keep it true… Real Hip-Hop cann’t get much more to the core than this! KXNG Crooked doing damage on Jeru The Damaja’s classic instrumental. Barz!!

KXNG Crooked – “Alternative Facts”

You got alternative facts, so what the f*ck is proof.
Look him dead in the eye, and give him the other truth!
KXNG Crooked

Taking the meme game to the cover art game – next level. Hahaaaa! And you know what else is ‘next level’… the level of out there that President Trump’s press secretary Kellyanne Conway was on when she coined the term “Alternative Facts.” But hey, let KXNG Crooked tell it, she just gave the whole hood a gift: a way out of most any bad situation (and then some). Pretty clever.

KXNG Crooked – “Robocop Went Pop” (Video)

Pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-pop! Load another clip…

Rhyme animal straight from the Slaughterhouse. Rhyming about bringing home some ‘bacon’ this time though. YOOOOO! KXNG Crooked managed to work in loving the 2nd Amendment AND the Bible in this “Robocop Went Pop” visual for the single off his “Good Vs Evil” album. Whew!

Termanology – “Let’s Go” (Pt. 2) feat. KXNG Crooked [Prod. By Statik Selektah]

For throwing rocks at the crown, your penalty is DEATH!

Yeah. This “Let’s Go” (Pt. 2) joint feels like Term started off in a stance and attacked the mic. The energy of the Stat beat, KXNG Crooked jumping in and beating it down… everything is right with this Hip-Hop. Another gold star for the “More Politics” project (out now).

KXNG Crooked – “Good Vs Evil” (Album Stream)

No surprise that the news of a coming Trump presidency has hit the ‘hood hard. But perhaps a positive byproduct is the music rappers are making because of it. Anger, consciousness, encouragement… worthwhile foundations for dope music. There’s more than enough lamentation and trepidation to spur on the movement. We heard that “Fire” single from Rapsody. Now you can sample/stream KXNG Crooked’s “Good Vs Evil” album sparked by fears & feelings brought on by the recent political upset.

Four years from now we’ll see if I was channeling my inner Nostradamus when creating this album. I say that because the arch nemesis in the storyline is a character called the “Puppet Master” who I modeled after Trump; but with more power. Now that Trump has more power than ever I wonder if my album’s warnings will become prophecy.

Dirt Disciples – “Hologram” (Prod. By DJ Concept)

It has been said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Now, I don’t know if New York’s Dirt Disciples (Rome Clientel & DJ Concept) hung out tough with KXNG Crooked, Prodigy, Nature, Reek Da Villian or any of the other dope cats that made the “Opportunity Knox” LP this time around for Volume 3. But this DJ Concept beat though, there’s proof of one above-average producer doing work for a helluva emcee! Hell, their “Hologram” contribution to the project might make Dirt Disciples part of the others’ five.

Kxng Crooked – “Don’t Close Your Eyes (Ashamed)” feat. Truth Ali x Jonathan Hay x Morgan McRae [Video]

God, I told myself these are the words I’d never say.
I’m my own worst opponent, and it hurts in every way.
You ever thought about smashing the mirrors in the house,
So you don’t have to see the same person that hurts you everyday?
I have.
Kxng Crooked

Deep right from the start… Maaan, when we got wind of this a couple of months back we told you here the vid would be deep, too!

Kxng Crooked (of Slaughterhouse) opens up about alcoholism, depression and suicide in his brand new music video. The demo version of the audio to “Don’t Close Your Eyes (Ashamed)” dropped earlier commemorating the birthday of the late Keith Whitley. This is the official version produced by Jonathan Hay and Ajami (linked below). The single will appear on the forthcoming LP – “The Urban Hitchcock” LP – due out October 5, 2015.

“I’ve been in several dark places in my life, betrayed by those closest to me, or feelings of hopelessness in situations I can’t control, or even others trying to remove me from this earth. It takes its toll. I have to rise above and keep moving forward for myself and my loved ones. I like to meditate and read a lot so that helps. Music is my ultimate medicine, though.”
Kxng Crooked

Much better therapy, Kxng. Respect.
