The Crooklyn Dodgers is a hip-hop supergroup based in Brooklyn, NY. They appeared in three separate incarnations since 1994. The first two incarnations recorded for the soundtracks for Spike Lee films, Crooklyn and Clockers, respectively.
The first group was composed of Buckshot, Masta Ace, and Special Ed. Their one and only record was "Crooklyn," produced by A Tribe Called Quest, and featured in the 1994 film Crooklyn.
The second group was composed of Chubb Rock, Jeru the Damaja, and O.C. Their one and only record was "Return of the Crooklyn Dodgers," produced by DJ Premier, and featured in the 1995 film Clockers. This incarnation was credited as Crooklyn Dodgers '95.
North Carolina producer 9th Wonder resurrected the group concept in 2006 for a track on his album The Dream Merchant Vol. 2, titled "Brooklyn in My Mind (Crooklyn Dodgers Part 3)". The new incarnation consisted of Jean Grae, Mos Def and Memphis Bleek.
