The Needle Drop is the absolute best album and track reviewer around. No gimmicks, no label backing, no bias, just real. Here is his review of Big K.R.I.T. – 4evaNaDay. I have listened to this album a couple of times and am not sure if I like as much as Anthony. However, I do like to listen to things multiple times before I make a final decision. Also, here is my favorite track from the tape so far.
I like it. I don’t love it. I guess I don’t find the production very interesting. I go through phases of loving southern rap. I loved Big Boi’s Sir Luscious Left Foot… and Yelawolf’s Trunk Muzik because they were unique. I don’t think that K.R.I.T.’s rhymes can carry an album with a limited amount of catchy hooks or guest spots. The album as a whole felt boring as I listened to it all the way through. Lyrically, I know southern rappers will always talk about candy paint, cars, purple drink, and such, but it is exhausting after a while. 3 mixtapes full of that stuff without much variation is rough. Don’t get me wrong, I like this tape. I think that K.R.I.T. is a nice artist. I just don’t love it. The best tracks are “4evaNaDay Theme”, “Red Eye”, and”Down and Out”.
