KXNG Crooked Is Gunned Down By a Police Officer in “Shoot Back” Video
Throughout the powerful visual, KXNG Crooked is pulled over by a police officer. Even though he's complying with the cop, the policeman pulls the trigger and guns the Slaughterhouse artist down. The dirty cop decides to plant a weapon in Crooked's vehicle. Onlookers capture the scene with smartphone cameras. The 38-year-old MC raps, “To the police: what kind of beast do you have to become/To kill a child so young who’s just having some fun/Dear officer, would you shoot if that was your son?”
Good vs. Evil is expected to release on Nov. 11. KXNG Crooked's team says, "Similar to the rampant rash of police shootings against innocent civilians, KXNG Crooked does [not] give a warning shot with Good Vs Evil. He directly tackles the boiler-plate issues that are permeating society; racial and economic injustices, unprovoked police brutality (and the glaring lack of accountability), a deteriorating educational system, governmental agencies that willingly pump poison into its communities and a basic disregard for civil rights."
KXNG Crooked tells XXL, “It all started when I was watching a news segment on the murders of Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland and all the other black people killed by Police” Crooked states. “I saw Tamir Rice’s mother on TV and the pain in her eyes made my blood pressure boil. No mother should lose a child like that. Then, I watched cops kill unarmed people on film and go home to their families like black lives didn’t matter. No charges and with paid leave.” He continues, “At the same time, I watched officers capture Dylan Roof alive and buy him a hamburger after he slaughtered nine black churchgoers. I thought to myself, are we under attack as black people to the point where I might have to shoot an officer just to survive a mere traffic stop? Then I thought, how crazy is it that we even have to think about in America [in 2016]?”
