KXNG Crooked Talks About His Experience Meeting Tupac & Leaving Death Row

Some may not know but the Shady Records rapper KXNG Crooked (formally known as Crooked I) was actually once signed to Death Row Records. In a recent interview with Home Grown Radio Crooked touched on the first time he met Tupac, when he first seen The Outlaws & Suge Knights reaction when he left Death Row.

“I’m a Pac fan too,” KXNG Crooked said. “I think he’s the greatest of all time…We pull up. I didn’t know what to expect. I was going to check out a Snoop session. When we walked in—I got this homeboy, he real—like he could bench 500-600 pounds. One of them big, swole niggas…He was walking through the door and then all of a sudden Suge was walking through the door. And this my first time ever seeing Suge. I was young. So, they couldn’t fit through the door together. And they kinda had like a slow motion mean mug…We was like ‘That’s Suge, nigga.’ So, we kept walking and I seen the Outlawz. And I was like ‘Oh shit, this nigga Makaveli might be in here.’ Man, I turned that corner and I walked in and I see Dogg. ‘Snoop, what’s up?’ Boom boom boom. And I see a nigga standing at the boards just shaking his head. I said ‘God dammit, that’s Tupac right there. That’s the G.O.A.T., nigga.’ So, I just walked up and started talking to him.”

KXNG Crooked also said Suge Knights reaction was nothing more then supportive ,“I’m glad you with the white boy” Suge said.

KXNG Crooked thinks that because of staying out of the beef going on with Death Row at the time is why he is now signed to Shady Records.

“And this is why I salute Suge,” he said. “Cause I always stayed myself. A lot of people changed up around him. They felt that they had to be a certain person because he was who he was. And I always stayed myself, so I think that’s the reason why I’m on Shady. Because there’s times where I could have threw out a lot of diss records towards Em. A lot of diss records towards Dre. But I told Suge that ain’t what I’m trying to do. I think Dre is the G.O.A.T. of all producers. I think Em is amazing and I don’t think people need another robot just picking up the beef where it left off. We need a brand new start over here and he respected that. And that’s probably why I’m on Shady now. Cause I could have burnt that bridge.”

New Hip Hop Museum Opening In Harlem New York

Hip Hop has always been a huge influence on the streets from Graffiti to beat boxing, break dancing and last but not least the music. HipHop originated in the Bronx New York and spread across The United States with no warning to any what kind of impact it would have on the music culture but it was huge. 

The new Hip Hop Hall of Fame will have some items from Hip Hop Legends Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Outkast, Young Jeezy, Common, Eminem, Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataam, and many more according to the museum’s organizer.

The hall of Fame will be built in Harlem New York, The “Four Fathers” of hip hop — Afrika Bambaataa, Grand Wizzard Theodore, Grandmaster Melle Mel and Grandmaster Caz Brown — had pushed for the city’s first hip hop museum to be based in the Bronx, where HipHop was first born.

The Harlem site on 125th St. will include a 12,000-square-foot museum space,shops and a TV studio.

“This will be the home of hip hop history,” said JT Thompson, who produced BET’s one-time Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards show in the 90s.

“People need to understand the importance of hip hop, the elements, the DJs, the B-boys and B-girls and the graffiti writers,” he added.

Music will forever be the escape for many people it will never matter what genre you listen to some extent that is the safe heaven for your mind and soul to release and be at peace. We cherish the art form of HipHop for many reasons the influence its had on Cultural Races and the positive and negative impacts it has on the streets but none the less HipHop is an art form unique in a sort of way where you really need to live it to understand it.
