If I was offered the opportunity in which I could collaborate with absolutely any emcee of my choice right now, Crooked I would be my number one pick. I was blessed with the opportunity to connect and collaborate with him when he came through Portland for a show back in February of this year. I'm super excited about it. The track itself is sort of a modern-day tribute to Ice Cube's '91 classic titled "Jackin' for Beats." I thought now would be a great time to show the people that real hip-hop isn't dead and to demonstrate that there are still real MCs and real DJ's out here that still appreciate, value and care about true skills.
