Crimeapple and DJ Skizz give us a super dope new project. This one sounds different than some of Crimeapple’s recent releases and that is a great thing. His other releases aren’t bad, it’s just that it is always good to hear some fresh sounds. DJ Skizz does a great job on the board providing some heat from Crimeapple to rhyme over. You can definitely bop your head to some of the tracks that DJ Skizz provides. Crimeapple sound refreshed and rejuvenated on the mic. His bars are to the point and he really does a great job with the pen on this one. All in all, this will be a great album for any fans of Crimeapple out there. Don’t let it pass you by.
Crimeapple drops his follow-up to the 2020 release Jaguar On Palisade with the second installment and this one is pretty dope. This one pretty much follows suit as the first one as Crimeapple sounds hungry on this one. He is spitting direct bars right into the guts of the competition. He is letting them know that he is on top. The beats are decent throughout this project. There is almost a bit more soul on this one than the previous one. The highlight is the track “The Lord” which has a fantastic sample and dope bars. Crimeapple continues his reign and we always look forward to hearing more from him. MANTECA!
Crimeapple serves up a new 4 track EP. This one is pizza-themed and is sprinkled with all types of references throughout the project. His flow is dope and he uses his signature style with his delivery. The beats on here are pretty standard. While it may be super short, it shows that Crimeapple has no plans on quitting. So any whack MCs and haters out there should definitely try to get prepared because Crimeapple isn’t going to make it easy on anyone. It’s a good project, I just always hope for full length projects.
Crimeapple drops a super dope new project. Even though it is only 8 tracks, he goes all the way in with the bars. His Spanglish style sounds great over these tracks and he is really going hard with the machismo style raps. He really cleverly spits some great lines all throughout this project to show why he is better than the competition. The beats are pretty slamming as well. They aren’t perfect, but at the same time, they aren’t far off either. This is definitely one of Crimeapple’s harder releases of his career. Definitely cop this one and listen through a few times.
Crimeapple teams up with DJ Muggs again for another super dope trip. For the bars, Crimeapple drops his signature Spanglish rhymes consistently finding new ways to combine words. There are only 2 features on this project from Stove God Cooks and RLX so Crimeapple handles most of the verses. The beats on here are definitely a high point being handled by the legendary DJ Muggs. He gives us that dark and brooding sound that has made his style so recognizable. This project is definitely something to ride to while you are rolling through Cartagena, Columbia up to no good.
Crimeapple breaks us off with a second installment of YDFWC right after the first. This one picks up right where the first one left off. he spits his Spanglish bars with a growing intensity that proves his determination. His bars are definitely getting better. The beats on here are pretty decent as well. I don’t think he is knocking it out of the park with any of these beats, but at the same time, they play through pretty well. All in all, another standard, slamming release from Crimeapple.
Crimeapple drops off a quick 4 track EP. You can definitely feel the bars on this new venture. He really has been perfecting his rhyme game as he drops bar after bar with his signature Spanglish style. He really is increasing his skills fast lately. The beats are pretty decent on here and Crimeapple sounds great on them. I think fans really want to get back to that Aguardiente sound, but this also works. He does another great job and hopefully we get to hear more Crimeapple real soon as he has definitely been doing his thing lately.
Crimeapple drops a dope new project with this one. Standing for You Don’t Fuck With Crimeapple, “YDFWC” almost marks a rebirth for Crimeapple. He is making a stand and showing the hip hop community that he is not just a flash in the pan. He is going to be here for a while and his bars prove that. The energy that he is bringing vocally shows that he has the determination and the talent to stay in this industry. The beats on here are pretty good overall. The highlight on the project is the familiar sample used on “Gambler’s Fallacy” in which Crimeapple disproves a fans tweet about him. It’s a pretty dope concept. All in all, this is a great Crimeapple project in which he is spitting his standard Spanglish bars for fans to relish.
Crimeapple delivers a brand new project that is his standard Spanglish dopeness. His bars are fast and relentless while he uses every word at his disposable. Some might say his flow is off beat, but it doesn’t matter. He is dope no matter how you look at it. The beats on here are definitely a bit more simplified than previous releases. They sound good, it’s just that they aren’t littered with a lot of drums. Sometimes I wonder if Crimeapple might sound better if he threw in some more boom bap once in a while. Nevertheless, he certainly delivers an enjoyable listening experience yet again. Fans will definitely relish in this one.
Crimeapple drops a new project that is pretty dope. This one seems to find some pretty decent beats to rock over. Crimeapple spits his usual fast and broken Spanglish format and it sounds dope. He almost sounds reinvigorated on this go round. I think his bars sound a bit improved, like the have a new found focus. The production on here is pretty dope as well. He really found some equality beats to rhyme over. The highlight has to be “Reclinin On Leather.” He just sounds better over hard drums. Those stripped down, shallow beats are cool here and there, but the real fans want something hard. He definitely delivered with this record. Can’t wait for him to keep this train rolling.
Crimeapple releases a new project and this one is pretty dope overall. On the mic, he certainly does his thing. You get that slick mix of street talk and Spanglish that makes Crimeapple stand out from the pack. He definitely sounds a bit hungrier on this release. The beats on here are a little above average. I think they have a dopeness about them, while also giving a unique vibe. He almost has the producers making menacing, yet somewhat hollow beats. He definitely fills in the tracks where they may be missing some of the more highly produced sounds. All in all, this is a pretty great record. I don’t think it is quite to the same standard as his Aguardiente album with Big Ghost Ltd, but it is still dope nonetheless.
Crimeapple releases a quick project here at only 8 songs. They called it a “deep dive into the complex dynamics of the eternal paper chase.” He brings his normal dope flow to it mixing Spanglish and street talk. It always goes over well on the lyrical side of things. The production on here was a bit quiet and low tempo. I’m not saying it was bad at all. I just wanted to hear Crimeapple over some really hard drums and neck snapping beats because he shines brightly over those. This wasn’t it, unfortunately. On “Entenmann’s” he flips some Biggie lyrics throughout the verses and the hook. In all honesty, I’m not quite sure how I feel about that quite yet. It’s like on one hand, should he be biting Biggie like that? On the other hand, he does do a nice flip of some of the lyrics. It’s different. All in all, not a bad effort though from Crimeapple. We always look forward to his projects.
Crimeapple teams up with legendary producer DJ Muggs to deliver some more manteca for fans. On paper, this sounded like it would be a classic project. In delivery, this was definitely a strong album. His bars are great throughout. There is definitely something about hearing him flip from English to Spanish or Spanglish that just sounds so fantastic. The beats on here were pretty decent. Overall, I think Muggs did a good job. They are very keys and sample heavy. I would have liked to have seen more drums and basslines. It seems like there aren’t too many tracks that are thumpers. The songs are definitely still hot though. The best tracks on this project are “Tiburones” and “Bloodtype.” Both of these tracks slap and Crimeapple definitely laces the bars on these. All in all, this was a good project, but I just hoped to hear more slappers on here.
Crimeapple teams up with DJ Skizz to release a pretty dope EP here. Even though it’s not a full length album, it almost feels like one especially under today’s standards. Crimeapple is definitely an MC on the rise. Every release that he has put out seems to at least stay consistently good. On the mic, Crimeapple just spits so fresh and different from everyone else out there. He mixes his highly talented rhyme schemes with drug scenes and Spanglish talk to create very vivid pictures. The beats on here are pretty dope as well. It is chock full of hard drums and clever samples. The highlights include “Divine” which is a story of what it’s like dealing with his girl’s choice to have an abortion. This is a very deep song with a really soulful sample. “FFFeel Good” is a really dope song as well in which Crimeapple rhymes a ton of words starting with the letter F. This would be reminiscent of when Papoose did “Alphabetical Slaughter.” This track really just shows you how great he is at rhyming. This is definitely one to check out and spread the word about this MC’s talent.
A FANTASTIC all around release here from a probably not too well-known MC by the name of Crimeapple. This dude is able to spit super dope street lyrics like nobody else out there. It is always refreshing to hear somebody sound so unique and talented and not like anyone else in the game. This dude spits superb bars over top of some grimy, classic-sounding, New York boom-bap beats and the outcome is phenomenal. From the Narcos-sampled intro to the very end of the tape, I was intrigued the whole way through. Every song sounds dope. This is really one that is infectious and will stand out the first time you listen to it. If you are a fan of dope, hard rap music, and you have been looking to get into something new, then this is the album you have been waiting for.
