Crooked I: The Industry Forces Rappers to Be Cocky

Long Beach native Crooked I sat down with VladTV and discussed his humble nature, and how he feels his contributions to Slaughterhouse and Shady Records can sometimes be overlooked due to him not being the braggadocious type.

Crook expressed that he contributes a lot to Shady, especially Slaughterhouse, where he’s selected beats, found producers, brought in other music professionals, etc., and feels that he doesn’t always get the credit he deserves because he’s not inclined to brag about his accomplishments. He admits that the music business forces rappers to be cocky, and while that isn’t his nature, he feels he’ll have to be more vocal in the future about his talents and contributions in order to be recognized.
