With an eclectic mix of poetic hip hop, these two projects demonstrate Crosby’s unique musical lane, thoughtful and experimental, but not unapproachable. Both projects showcase a conceptual approach to hip hop that we enjoy, and each have individual gems, but the appreciation for Cros’ ideas are heightened when ingesting each project as a whole.

On the surface, Crosby doesn’t command immediate attention. He doesn’t necessarily possess a voice, swag or demeanor that immediately stands out, but as with good modern art, an open-mind and a few looks/listens, will provide heads who favor artistic, intellectual and progressive hip hop, something to connect with.

As we mentioned, Crosby has several vehicles to display his creativity; music, crafting clocks for sale, working with Swizz Beatz, supplying artwork for his Monster Monday music series, and video production projects. - Manny Faces


Clockwork Cros, the rapper/fashion hustler known for his work on Hip Hop Howl showcases at SXSW and video directing plus being the Kid of the LES releases New York Posterboy, a fitting title for the MC who has rocked with anyone and everyone to ever touch the Bowery, and can be seen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the streets of NYC.

Crosby means to rep nyc in the best way possible, and he does it with this tape. If there is anyone who manages to be the lower east side kid dropping words encouraged through Alphabet City , this kid is the poster child. - Kosha Dillz


Surrealist clock designer Crosby, whose work is among the items that can be purchased there, agrees. “Art is still a very interesting and intricate part of the culture and if we can make some more of our generation art lovers, that would be amazing,” Crosby said. - Tara Lynn Wagner


In the last few months, two mixtapes from Crosby have been circulating throughout the ether, additions to a collection of archival media from this artistic multidisciplinarian also known as Crosby Coolest, Clockwork Cros and Crosmopolitan.

New York Posterboy, a concept project set in the offices of the New York Post, follows an eager cub reporter working to break Crosby to the paper. To explain Downtown 85 best, we’ll borrow from the press materials, which describe it well. Downtown 85 “appropriates upon the narrative of Basquiat and his fellow urban artists who come from around the world to the Manhattan’s Lower East Side to work with a shared sense of freedom”. The vibe definitely invokes a bohemian existence, and the narrative, a series of skits that string the project together, helps visualize the evolution of the artist, his path through life and his LES surroundings.

CROSBY, aka CROSMOPOLITAN, aka CLOCKWORK CROS
"Crosby has been featured on Miz Metro Mondayz (The Bloom Blog) various times, for his various amazing talents. His surrealist clocks, ibook made videos (which are so dope its scary), clothing company "City Slickaz", various shows "DowntownTV", Hip Hop HOWL! (founder & co-presenter) and most recently for his video which he is a featured M.C in “Get Loose”, that has been getting heavy rotation on all the biggest hip hop blogs. Watch out for the Youngest Mayor of the Lower East Village, L.E.S born and raised-he’s no joke." - Laura O'Reily


"This man spits and leaves it on the stage when he rocks! between the legitimate lyrical skill and the fact that he WILL jump off the stage and into your face..lots of laughs, you will leave his set fully satisfied." - Bless Roxwell


"When I first heard Crosby flow, I couldn't believe my ears...The way he pieced ideas and metaphors together, was genius...I don't put Cros in a white or black category, I put Cros in a Crosegory." - Agela Mack
