Crooklyn Dodgers

Crooklyn Dodgers — a rotating super-group of Brooklyn underground rap vets that included Masta Ace, Buckshot Shorty and Special Ed — named themselves after their borough's legendary former team, and sampled a Dodgers radio broadcast for their Q-Tip–produced 1994 classic "Crooklyn."
