Listening to Crooked I is little like having your grey matter pummeled by a heavyweight boxer with gloves made of sheer lyrical excellence. In other words, it’s definitely Not for the Weak Minded. Those of y’all who have been doing your mental push-ups, however, will find a lot to like about the Long Beach mainstay’s latest feature, the tagless version of a joint off DJs Whoo Kid, Skee and MLK‘s latest compilation. Here, beatsmith Jonathan Elkaer‘s ominous synth-percussion grooves set the mood as Crook lets loose at the competition, deftly incorporating double-time flows into his verbal onslaught. On the back, Snow Tha Product vents her spleen at femcees who owe their fame more to their physical assets than their mic skills: “Yes, I am tired of all you sl*ts / That been comin’ in the game ‘cause you bought your butts.” Feeling it? You can find Not for the Weak Minded and much more on the aforementioned SXEW Volume 2 tape, released to the ‘net in advance of this month’s SXSW festivities.
