Crooked I ft. Vaughn Anthony - Let Me Buy You a Drink

Posted about 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
TABU
Album:
Planet C.O.B. Vol. 1 EP

Don’t worry, Crooked I hasn’t gone all T-Pain on us. While Let Me Buy You a Drink finds the Cali mainstay showcasing a different side of his persona than fans may be used to, it’s… well… a different different side than the title might lead you to expect. Here, the Slaughterhouse emcee emerges as a masterful storyteller. Backed by the subdued production of Danish crew TABU, the rapper steps into the shoes of a drug pusher whose girl left him after learning that he’d cheated, taking the kids with her – and thanks to his occupation, any effort to gain custody would, of course, land him in jail. As it turns out, the woman to whom he’s pouring out his heart has a dilemma of her own: as Crook explains on verse two, she’s struggling with whether to tell her fiancée that she’s pregnant with another man’s child. Topped off with the silky-smooth hook vocals of singer/songwriter Vaughn Anthony, this cut doesn’t offer much in the way of happy endings, but there’s no denying its cathartic appeal. Fans can find this joint, along with some lighter fare, on Crook’s Planet C.O.B Vol.1 , released yesterday and available for purchase online.
