Los Angeles native and emcee Propaganda has returned to deliver on his fifth solo project Crooked, an introspective work that fits in well with the lyricist's profound catalog.
Composed of 14 tracks, Crooked takes a conscious effort at artfully uncovering various perspectives on issues both on the global and personal scale.
“I’ve watched my wife run so hard into patriarchal systems and seen the misogyny she’s dealt with,” he told Mass Appeal about the album. “It’s made me realize how overlapping our issues are. In my life I watch all these overlaps and I wanted to step into that space talk about how we’re all connected. And I know I’m indicted in all these structures I’m trying to take down. I talk about patriarchy and misogyny, but I know I still benefit from being a guy. I need to own that. On this album I’m exploring a lot of ideas, including my relationship to my wife and two kids and how to love them better.”
