Krooked Fam is an 831 rap group composed of four MCs dedicated to making good music and showing people what the Central Coast of California is about. The group members:LP,Menyo,Hecdogg,and Logik The Saint are all from Santa Cruz County but rep the entire 831 and Central Coast proudly. Being Latino and from the West Coast they all grew up around gangs and violence. This is also partly their motivation,to show others that their can be something positive made out of something negative. They want people who can relate to their stories to know that life is worth much more than becoming another statistic. Krooked Fam is well known around the local scene and has played at many venues around the area such as The Catalyst and The Blue Lagoon;but also other venues in San Jose and Gilroy. Their words contain street knowledge and each member brings a different style and aspect to the table;making them a group of diverse MCs. Their song types are also diverse and topics range to everything from partying to harsh life experiences. Krooked Fam is willing to collaborate with anyone serious about their music who takes pride in their work.
Their origins date back to 2000 with the name S.C.U.M. and original members Lp,Menyo,and Jayoda. By collaborating with local artists they gained recogition in the Santa Cruz rap scene. Rapping alongside crews such as CTK,S.C.U.M. was on the grind for years. Starting in early 2011 S.C.U.M. needed a name to make them stand out. They coined the name Krooked Fam. Shortly after,Hecdogg joined the group. He brought an old school flava to the group. Around mid 2011,Logik The Saint joined the group bringing an underground lyricist style to the table. Since then Krooked Fam has been hard at work making mixtapes,albums,doing live shows,and putting themselves on the map. They strive to be successful in the rap game but remain true their hip-hop roots.
