Stevie Crooks - GRG

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Tut Piece
Album:
Cashmere Killer

Take a moment to gaze deeply into Stevie Crooks’ artist pic—what do you see staring back at you? (Or off to the side, as the case may be.) If your answers is, “A real G and ill emcee who’s destined to do big things in the game,” then give yourself a pat on the back; as the Cali spitter informs us on the latest single off his forthcoming, Booth-hosted street album, it takes one to know one. Making its world premiere right here in The DJBooth, this cut finds producer (and creative speller) Tut Piece crafting a smooth backdrop for laid-back yet hard-nosed rhymes from the up-and-coming emcee. Though the bulk of Crooks’ allusive, expressionistic bars deal with the fame and fortune that lie ahead, he doesn’t let his bright future blind him to the perils of the here-and-now. Wary of homies who might turn snake on him, he offers an objective lesson in how he deals with traitors on the back: “Drove to the water, came to a stop / Frank Ocean this n*gga, see if you can swim or not.” If you recognize this cut’s freshness, you can expect more where this came from on Cashmere Killer, scheduled to hit our mixtape page June 12, for free streaming and download.
