West Coast rapper Crooked I has been releasing a freestyle every Wed. for the last year. He’s gone to every beat imaginable and for the last one, week 52, he went all out.

If this doesn’t do it for you, maybe hip hop isn’t for you…

I should add that Crooked’s list of quotables from this weekly series is better than most rapper’s entire catalogues…”picture me rolling, still living like a pimp when he strolling/still, lyrics sicker than the s**t in your colon/ still gutter like OBAMA when the ni**a was bowling…”- Crooked I, “Week 52, The Finale”

Smoking Section has a nice analysis of the whole series.
