Kxng Crooked, or Crooked I, the Long Beach hip-hop wordsmith pays homage to the one and only Dr. Dre in his new track, “If I Was Dre”. Focusing on both Dre’s musical and entrepreneur successes, we see a different side of Crooked. While there is word going around that this is a reference track from Dre’s now defunct Detox, he still kills it with his smooth flow and creative wordplay. The beat sounds like it may be from a church service, was blessed by DJ Silk and Chris Knoxx. Tracks like this one let us know the west is back, and will never die.
