7 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

From his early days with the post-Dre Death Row, through his countless mixtapes and much-loved "Hip Hop Weekly" series, and onto his current stardom as a member of the Slaughterhouse collective, Crooked I has had a colorful career over the last 15 years. On In None We Trust–The Prelude, he serves up seven joints loaded with rowdy verses about the code of the streets, glossy clubs, and his self-proclaimed status as one of the greatest emcees working today. His gift with wordplay is most evident on the horn-propelled "Diamond in the Back," with sample rhymes like: "Presidential Rolie with that Barack appeal/I ball and kick it like I'm on a Ghana soccer field." Other standouts include the banger "Drum Major" (rocked with organ and live drums) and "Goin' Bad," which flips a devastating beat reminiscent of CNN's "Bang Bang."
