Sixthman + Grand Central Present
311 Caribbean Cruise Pre Party
Drawing its roots from a small town in Belize, Krooked Treez combines Reggae, Rap and Alternative Rock to present a wholly unique sound that provides the backdrop for poignant lyrics about struggle, triumph and the beauty of life. Their newest single, "So In Love With California", is a smooth, sun-splashed opus capturing the beauty of southern California, the home base for Krooked Treez.
Founded by O Brown, a Belizean/Mexican American who first broke into the scene as a protégé of B-Real of Cypress Hill, the members of Krooked Treez were hand-picked by the MC after "Rebel", a collaboration between O Brown and Belizean Reggae & R&B singer BZ-Bwai created a tremendous buzz and a call for more work between the two artists.
This song would prove to be the catalyst that created Krooked Treez, as O Brown quickly assembled a tremendously talented & diverse roster to further explore and cultivate the sound and vibe that was created on "Rebel" and a subsequent recording with Alex Puente, who would become the drummer of Krooked Treez. O Brown and BZ-Bwai agreed to name this new venture after Crooked Tree, the small town in Belize in which O Brown draws his roots. A metaphor for his live, BZ-Bwai especially resonated with this name as he remembered a lesson from his Grandmother- nurture the seeds we plant; this is the difference between them growing up Krooked or straight.
