Crooked I Talks Election & Block Obama 2
Last night (November 4th), the world was introduced to their new President Elect, Barack Obama [click to read].
Before the polls were closed and the winner was announced, Crooked I revealed his thoughts on the election exclusively to HipHopDX.
In a nutshell, this will be one of the most historic elections ever. We all know the kind of impact the first African American President will have on the pages of U.S. history so Ill say no more than that.
Crooked then proceeded to speak on Obama & McCains campaigns.
Here's what I look at, Mr. Obama has put together a monstrous fucking campaign. A four headed monster. Internet takeover, massive ground operation, McDonald's like advertising and fund raising on steroids. Obama has branded himself like all rappers wish they could and managed to inspire at the same time. Mr. McCain on the other hand has fumbled the ball in key situations and that is bad news for somebody handcuffed to Bush. On the campaign trail, McCain has said shit almost as dumb as Soulja Boy's shout out to the slave masters. He's outta touch. Sarah Palin, enough said.
November 4th also served as the release date of Crooked Is Block Obama 2 EP which features a guest appearance from KnocTurnal and production by Rick Rock.
The Block Obama 2! Digital EP for the streets! I started the Obama series for one reason, the West Coast needs change, thats it. All I want to do is take the new era of West Coast hip hop to the same level the old era was on. C.O.B. forever! Crooked I concludes.
The 8-track digital EP is available at all digital retailers; including iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, Napster, Emusic and all mobile carriers.
