Crooked I

UPDATE #2: Tech N9ne and K-Young can be heard on Crooked I's 11-track studio solo debut album, "Apex Predator."

Despite a 15-plus year career on record, Long Beach, California's Crooked I had been very careful about album releases. The former Death Row Records hopeful-turned-Slaughterhouse star has never officially released a solo full-length LP. Despite two group albums with Slaughterhouse, which followed other such efforts with 19th Street and C.O.B., Crooked has only ever released EP projects, along with Death Row's unofficial Hood Star album after he left the label.

All of this may be changing, as today the Treacherous Records artist announced his Apex Predator release date and artwork. The album, which is slim on details at the moment, will release July 30 on the aforementioned label, as confirmed by Empire Distribution's spokesperson today. The cover art is below:

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche. Terrific blog!

      You're fucking retarded. Crooked I is one of the best lyricists in the rap game. He flexed all over this album. You're ears are trash @King Yebo

      Crooked aint got no big songs on the radio with features from Ross, Meek Mill, T.I., Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Future, Chris Brown, French Montana, Birdman etc.... Ace WOOD most definitely flopped and you cant even compare the two

      Crooked doesn't need feature's with those garbage artist, the only mainstream artist that are good, Drake, Meek, Kendrick. Underground is where it's at. Crooked will slaughter any mainstream artist do research.

    I'm really disappointed, as a slaughterhouse fan, this wasn't that dope, he can make something better, YODO is the best song im my opinion, other ones aren't that great.
  • IsHulle!!!
    Cant wait to get this album!!! Nice one Crook... LETS GET IT!!! Another loose quarter keeping Hip Hop alive.

    I personally think its a dope cover, not that cliche "throw your mug on the cover and try and look hard". The only thing is to someone would see that in a store and instantly assume it was some female rapper and not look twice to notice it was a Crooked LP. but its not like an album cover is gonna keep me from buying as long i fuck with the artist anyway.

    You've been waiting 15 years to put out your debut solo and you put the most random broad on your cover...SMH. Has to be one of the worst covers for a debut album ever. Still looking forward to hearing the album though, but
