Kxng Crooked Gets Political for New Song “The Maga Continues”
Kxng Crooked, formerly known as Crooked I, is back with new music, this time setting his sights on President Donald Trump. "The MAGA Continues" finds Crooked spitting about police brutality and how dangerous it is for people of color if officers gain more power.
“Donald Trump coined the now famous acronym MAGA. I personally believe the phrase ‘Make America Great Again’ is a dog whistle for racism and turning the clocks of progression backwards,” Crooked commented through email. “The way the country is currently divided it seems to be working. I’m really just letting off steam on the joint, but some important points are definitely being touched on. One point I covered in the song is being widely overlooked; maybe because it’s a fairly new form of division in hip-hop."
He adds, "I’ve done many shows with white rappers and seen some of their fans in the crowd wearing confederate flag and swastika symbols on their clothing. Shit blew my mind. Nobody talks about this element in Hip Hop that is growing and will cause division on another level. I chose to speak on it because Hip Hop is a tool for unification and we need to keep it that way. How long will we allow the MAGA to continue?”
"The MAGA Continues" is a single off KXNG Crooked’s Good Vs Evil 2: The Red Empire project, the sequel to last year's Good Vs. Evil. The politically-charged upcoming project drops on Dec. 8. He previously released "Truth (Why You Mad)" featuring Royce 5'9” last month.
