KXNG Crooked isn’t quite done yet. Never will be. The Long Beach, California native released his emotions on fake “artists” in the rap game and encourages them to take a step amongst many other quotables from this in depth interview. Hit the jump.

During one of KXNG Crooked’s recent interviews, he lets it all out on inauthenticity in the rap game:

“I hate when people say ‘I’m not a rapper’ or ‘I’m just a street dude with a talent.’ Well, if you’re not a rapper then get the f*ck out of Hip Hop. I won’t compromise those things I believe in and stand for when I’m making music, even to my own detriment sometimes. But it is what it is. I’m not going to do it.”

“I do believe in focusing on the positive. I don’t like being the bearer of bad news. But guess what? It’s a lot of wack sh*t that’s going to spawn new wack sh*t, because the kids listening to the wack sh*t thinks this is the way to craft his own sh*t. So now I’m listening to 16 and 17 year olds’ Soundcloud pages, and they sound wack. It’s a domino effect that needs to be stopped.”

“At the end of the day, artists are supposed to have some sort of voice, and the music is supposed to reflect the times. So when you have all these protests over kids getting killed by police officers, the terrorism, and all this sh*t going on, and none of the Hip Hop music reflects the times…if you put it in a time capsule, no one would know what the f*ck was going on in 2015-2016.”
