Big K.R.I.T...hmm where do I start...one of my boys over at Brooklyn Bodega put me on to his recent mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, and the first thing I asked him was if he was better than Freddie Gibbs. After going through tons of music recently, I've definitely been trying to filter through it whichever way possible. To make a long story short, I gave him a listen and this dude's mixtape is jaw dropping. He could easily be viewed by many credible and knowledgeable blogs/organizations as making the mixtape of the year.
Very few artists in general have as much range as this dude when it comes to production AND rhymes. He's got those "ignorant" dirty beats that KNOCK ("Country $h!t" & "Just Touched Down") in addition to ones with crazy soulful/jazzy samples ("Something" & "Neva Go Back"). When one's got the lyrical ability and content of someone like K.R.I.T. alongside production this tight, he/she is bound to leave a sudden impact. This project has many songs that remind me of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, UGK, and Scarface's The Fix. That being said, I don't know what else to say except that you need this mixtape in your life so you can find out who this man is.
