KXNG Crooked joins his fellow Slaughterhouse emcee Royce Da 5’9 on the lead single “Truth” (Why You Mad), from Crook’s upcoming project, “Good Vs Evil 2: The Red Empire” .
Speaking with HotNewHipHop Crooked elaborated on the project and it’s cover artwork.“There are a few messages I wanted the artwork to communicate” Crooked asserted. “One is the thin line between good and evil. Sometimes there’s light in villains and darkness in heroes. I also added a figure that may be a bit controversial and that’s the widely accepted image of Jesus Christ. No shot at Christians, but that particular image of Christ symbolizes death, slavery and colonization to many. Most American slave masters and the Klu Klux Klan members hang that image on their walls and truly believe themselves to be Christians. I’m trying to open doors to taboo conversations. And lastly, the Trump figure is “Red Hood,” the albums new enemy of justice being inducted into the Tyrants club and kneeling like the football players for what he believes in; hatred and division.”
Listen to the single below and be on the lookout for “Good Vs Evil 2: The Red Empire“, dropping December 8th.
