Twitter can be an interesting place. I first heard of Stevie Crooks sometime near the end of 2010 when a couple of dudes I knew were super hyped about this guy from LA rocking out with a ski-mask on his face.

I was like, ‘what?’. Turns out that he’s my type of MC. At the end of 2011, he dropped a music video for a song called GemStar off of his recently released VLNS NVR DIE album. Very ’90s inspired Hip-Hop; reminds me of Mobb Deep and Wu-Tang if they were merged into like one person or something. Needless to say that he’s dope.
