Album Download: Big K.R.I.T., 4Eva N A Day

Posted in Album Download with tags , , on Monday, March 5, 2012 by Tim Althaus

What a great day for Hip-Hop music; first the Soundset 2012 lineup is announced (which K.R.I.T. will be at), and then the Meridian, Mississippi phenom dropped some new material for the world to hear. 4Eva N A Day is a mix tape that I’ve been anticipating for quite some time now; I really didn’t get into Big K.R.I.T. at first, but once I really started to dig deeper, I instantly became a huge fan. The one thing that I really enjoy about K.R.I.T. is that he always puts out original music. K.R.I.T’s mix tapes contain tracks that have production by none other than himself; he isn’t releasing half-assed mix tapes with jacked beats. In fact, I (along with the rest of the Hip-Hop community) consider his mix tape releases to be album quality

4Eva N A Day features seventeen all new original tracks from K.R.I.T., and there are no vocal guest appearances; it sounds like this tape could be monumental. It seems as though there is no slowing down one of the hardest working cats in the Hip-Hop game; he had released three top-tier mix tapes in the last three years, and he is readying the world for his Def Jam debut, Live From the Underground. Make sure click the download button and get yourself a syringe.

Soundset 2012 Announced!

Sorry for the delay in my posting lately folks, but I’ve been swamped in my personal life. Anyways, I was at work today when I got about 3 different text messages pertaining to this year’s Soundset Festival in Shakopee, MN. Let me tell you right now, my heart dropped when I saw this lineup; it is utterly fantastic. I went to the initial reincarnation of Soundset in 2008, and it’s one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. I also went in 2009, but I haven’t been back since because I wasn’t as enthused about the lineup as I had been in past years.

This year they have truly outdone themselves; I can’t even express how excited I am about this lineup. Some of the artists (just to name a few) include Atmosphere (as always), Aesop Rock, Evidence, Big K.R.I.T., Ghostface Killah & Raekwon, Danny Brown, DJ Premier, Kendrick Lamar, hometown heroes Audio Perm and more. Tickets will be on sale this Saturday, March 10th at 11AM, and I can assure you I will be picking up a VIP ticket stat. General admission is going to be $41, and VIP will be $90. I hope to see you all there!

Big K.R.I.T., “Boobie Miles”

I spotted this one at 2DopeBoyz last night, but it was far too late to post anything, so I decided to throw it up today. Big K.R.I.T. released the artwork for his upcoming mixtape 4EvaNaDay, and he let go of the lead single as well; According to K.R.I.T., “Boobie Miles” is about overcoming all of the trials and tribulations that often seem to get in the way when you are trying to reach your dreams. “Boobie Miles” is so smooth, and although it doesn’t have a producer credit, I’m fairly certain that K.R.I.T. produced this himself; this guy does everything, and he’s pretty much the future of Southern Hip-Hop. I can’t wait to hear 4EvaNaDay, and I’m dying to hear Live From the Underground. It’s going to be a big year for Big K.R.I.T.
