For a short spell through the later ’90s, Crooked I used to be signed to Virgin. The Long Seaside MC made an appearance on Virgin and Virgin-affiliated compilations just like the SWEPT UP soundtrack (“Gal,” with Luniz) and C-Style’s 19th Road LBC Compilation (“Gangsta Gangsta,” “Jump to the”). Not really a free of charge agent for longer, Crooked subsequently dropped along with Suge Knight and agreed upon to Loss of life Row, appearing over the As well Gangsta for Radio compilation (“Loss of life Rizzo” and “Gangsta Rap,” which also highlighted Treach and Scarface) as well as the Dysfunktional Family members soundtrack (adding to nearly another of its monitors). Though at least one Crooked I mixtape surfaced through the MC’s period over the label, a set of albums — including State Hi towards the THEIF, slated for the 2002 discharge — didn’t. Departed from Loss of life Row by early 2004, Crooked proceeded to go independent, introducing his Dynasty Entertainment label, but legal road blocks avoided him from launching yet another name of his very own. Mixtapes, Dvd videos, and features continuing to accumulate, with B.O.S.S. (Starting of Something Critical) — finally, his first public album — ready for the 2008 release time.
