    Crooked I Speaks On Tha Row Restraining Order
    By Nolan Strong
    Date: 2/17/2005 5:57 pm



    Rapper Crooked I has filed a temporary restraining order against Marion "Suge" Knight, CEO of Tha Row, claiming that Knight is interfering with his recording career.

    Crooked I, who signed with the label in 1999 and made national television appearances with Knight, alleges that other record labels interested in signing him are being chased away by Knight, who claims the Crooked I is still signed to Tha Row.

    "It's ashame that we have to go there," Crooked I told AllHipHop.com. "My whole thing is, when I told him [Suge] I wanted to make a move, he always told me, 'if you wanna make a move, I'll let you bounce.' So when he sent the cease and desist to stop my recording career and they kept saying that I was still signed on Tha Row's website, it kind of puzzled me. On top of that, I felt the contract was expired. I gotta live out here, I gotta eat and put music out on the streets."

    Crooked I, who was signed to Virgin before signing with Tha Row, is considered one of Hip-Hop's brightest emerging talents, due to his lyrical prowess.

    He said he fulfilled his obligations to the label by recording almost four albums worth of material for Tha Row that has never been released. He said he also did writing for Left Eye and Kurupt and believes his contract actually expired in 2003.

    "Right now, the contract is being debated. It's all based on interpretation," Crooked I explained. "Four years, no releases, I turned in my masters. Once you turn in your masters and nothing comes out, it’s over. I have turned in mastered albums and nothing came out. Death Row’s interpretation is that it’s not over. So we have to go to court to see who’s right."

    Crooked I is currently working on a documentary about his time at Death Row and his transformation from a rapper, to a rapper/CEO.

    Label woes aside, Crooked I said that while the ordeal has been a struggle, he would eventually persevere.

    "I am trying to have everything clean so everyone will be confident when they are dealing with me," Crooked I continued. "I want to go full swing without having to worry about this dude [Suge] coming out of the darkness."

    I heard one song by Crooked I and it sound like crap. It was the one he made with Sisqo.

    But besides that Suge Knight is a big ass prison punk and I don't blame dude for filing a restraining order or taking some kind of legal action against that gay muthafucka cuz its only a matter of time before that big faget azz nigga start stalking him like he doing Dr. Dre and Snoop.

    Suge Knight is a fake azz nigga bullshit hating muthafucka who acts like a bitch when things can't go his way. Dude said he wanted to bounce because shit wasn't popping at death row. He should be a man and accept the shit that he wasn't handling dudes buisness like a CEO and owner of a label should.

    Muthafuckas are stupid as fuck to even do buisness with him. I mean think about what the fuck can this Suge Knight do for you as a manger???? When is the last time this moron released an album???????? He can't put shit on a table because he too busy stalking ex death row artist and running in and out of prison.

    I'm tired of hearing about this stupid muthafucka. Why don't he concentrate on releasing albums and getting his label back together.

    You notice all the artist that went through death row, the only ones that are being fucked with by him are the ones that made him the most money Dr. Dre and Snoop dogg. I believe he had something to do with killing Tupac. This dude Crooked I every one said he was the one that was suppose to bring the west back and dude had talent. He had a good fan base for some one that haven't released shit. Suge Knight is fucking with him because he hating and knows the money he let get away.

    Nah, Crooked I is one of the most lyrical EVER... syllable rhyming, inner rhyme patterns, complex rhyme schemes, and so on.. and Crooked's mic presence is MUCH stronger IMO

    all Ras gets is his punches/metaphors on 'em but Crooked's nice at 'em too

    Word. But Crooked deserves the blame for this. What the hell was he thinkin' bout when he signed with Tha Row in the first place? He knew what the situation was like over there. I don't even know what the hell Kurupt was thinkin when he went back. You'd think niggas would've learned by now.
