Crooked I


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Dominick Wickliffe, better known by his stage name Crooked I is an American rapper from Long Beach, California. The name “Crooked I” comes from a shortened version of his original moniker, Crooked Intriago. It has nothing to do with the malt liquor. He is 1/4th of rap supergroup Slaughterhouse (with Joe Budden, Royce da 5’9” & Joell Ortiz), and is currently regarded as the best rapper on the west coast, after rising to hip-hop prominence with his freestyle series ‘Hip-Hop Weekly’, which he released a new freestyle over popular industry beats every week for 52 weeks. His first album ‘Say Hi to the Bad Guy’, originally intended to be released on Death Row Records recently leaked on the internet, and he plans to release his first official album ‘B.O.S.S. (Beginning Of Something Serious)’ as a free digital download in 2009. Crooked I is CEO of his own record label, Dynasty Entertainment, and Senior Vice President of Treacherous Records. Before he became his own boss, he was also signed to Virgin Records, and most notably, Death Row Records, where he spent four years working under the infamous Suge Knight.

    i think his toughest stretch was the 15 joints he did for HHW: Reloaded... he really put that work in. i feel like it's even more valuable because he pulled the plug early.

    The issue I have with Crooked I is the same as with countless other rappers: although he (and countless others) can rap and construct hours worth of lyrics, he doesn't really seem to have anything significant to say. Maybe it's because I'm a poor white college student and "getting that money", balling, going to the club etc. don't really translate to my life experience as well as songs by white rappers about lung cancer, depression, dopamine, etc.
