Crooked I On ‘People’s Party With Talib Kweli’
On this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with a true veteran of the culture, Crooked I. They discuss his interview show “Crook’s Corner,” his work on the Hulu biopic “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” his first time meeting Tupac, Long Beach gang affiliations, and how hip-hop can help foster black-brown unity.
Later, Crook speaks on working with Death Row and Suge Knight, then moving to Shady/Aftermath, touring with Slaughterhouse, his struggles with alcoholism, and his journey to sobriety. The trio also discusses how mainstream rap can promote negative stereotypes and the need to take back the culture from anyone pushing those agendas.
