Stream KXNG Crooked’ New Album, ‘Good Vs Evil 2: The Red Empire’

blame it on Shake December 7, 2017

Last year, KXNG Crooked stared in the face of oppression and delivered a manifesto in the form of Good Vs Evil.

Unfortunately, in the year that’s followed, we’ve yet to see any progress and have fallen even deeper into the divide with racism, sexism, and social injustice at an all time high—thanks, majorly, to the Cheeto in Charge’s antics in office.

With that said, Crooked is back with another collection of songs full of politically and socially conscious rhymes that are just as incendiary, authentic and unapologetic as its predecessor.

“When I first started creating Good Vs Evil I wondered how I would get my audience to listen to a project covering social injustice, racism, classism etc. in a climate where most rappers are making music about poppin’ Xanax and drinking lean” Crooked commented. “My immediate afterthought was who gives a fuck what other artists are doing, Hip-Hop needs this album! Look at the world today. We have a president whose ex-wife is on record saying she was raped by him. We have police officers who are on film killing unarmed citizens with no consequences. We have entire cities like Flint, MI drinking poisonous water. Good Vs Evil 2 is just as necessary as part one. From the production to the content to the music sequencing to the artwork everything is designed to provoke thought. And the shit slaps too!”

Locked in at 14 tracks, including “Truth (Why You Mad)” with Royce 5’9” and “The MAGA Continues,” the album also includes contributions from Styles P and Emanny.
