Big K.R.I.T.’s much anticipated Def Jam debut Live From the Underground is now available for stream through NPR. Comes out June 5th. Here’s a peak. Enjoy.
This is the official video for Big K.R.I.T.’s title track of his mixtape 4evaNaDay. This is a stand-out track that you might need a decent sound sound system to truly appreciate. Southern Hip-Hop at it’s finest. Watch out for his proper release Live From the Underground on Def Jam June 5th. Enjoy.
It’s nice to see good artists working with each other and the Phonte/9th Wonder combination is always top notch. I like this song a lot but I wasn’t going to post it until I saw the video. The Evidence verse is really quite funny. When life gives you lemons, let your mom rap the verse. Enjoy.
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”.
