Straight Out Of Long Island NYC, The League repping that L Crooked I!!!



Flip, Flix, Reem, and Merse, collectively know as The League, all hail from the Elmont and Roosevelt areas in, arguably, the most forgotten part of the NY hip hop skyline, Long Island. Having known each other since Jr High School, these 4 diverse emcees starting rapping together as a hobby that eventually turned into an everyday lifestyle.

While being active on the local underground scene for quite some time,
The League linked up with their long time in house production team ‘The Pradeucerz’ in 2003. From there, as a movement, L Crooked I was born, and it was only about to get stronger.

After countless shows in the Tri State area and opening for the likes of Jae Millz, Joell Ortiz, Grafh and The Late Stack Bundles, The League started to capitalize on their newfound exposure. The League’s undeniable grind and passion towards their craft eventually helped them land certain Industry co signs that don’t just come along daily.

In 2007, The League’s first major mixtape ‘LIRR’ Vol 1 was hosted by Hot 97’s DJ Kay Slay and was nominated for ‘Street Album Of The Year’ at the 11th annual Justo Awards. Later that same year, The League dropped another monster mixtape ‘LIRR’ Vol 2 ‘The 3rd Rail’ hosted and by G Unit Co Founder Sha Money XL, boasting a strong single (and video) ‘Beastin’ (also produced by Sha Money) which lit up the internet sites and blogs.

Its no secret that The League has been on a relentless grind- night after tireless night performing the showcase circuit, while gaining press accolades from the likes of, Rap Fanatic,, as well as the front cover of Strong Island Hip Hop Magazine and much more. The League are also no stranger to the mixtape scene either, having laced tapes for veterans like Big Mike, DJ Kay Slay, Ron G to the underground supporters like Bedtyme357 and DJ Gooch.

With no end in site or signs of slowing down, The League press on in 09 with a new single called ‘Drop Ur Panties’ which is charting in various states and is gaining it’s momentum on the college reports and BDS. The League has also been tapped to do several spot dates on tour with the self proclaimed king of the south, TI and is in preparation to drop their next tapes ‘LIRR’ Vol 3 ‘The Colin Ferguson Files’ as well as ‘The Best Of The League’ And, not to deprive their loyal fans online, The League has also started a video remix series called ‘The League VS The Industry’ where the group remixes today’s hottest singles and intertwines their performance within the video. The League has also teamed up with some of the hottest emcees in the land, such as Joell Ortiz, Sha Stimuli, Grafh, Skyzoo and Sic Osyrus to bring you The League’s Draft pick. Both will be featured on several blogs and sites on a week to week basis.
