Review: Big K.R.I.T. – Return of 4Eva

Big K.R.I.T. – Return of 4Eva

Another mixtape I just recently listened to all the way through – and it’s strong  He gives me a very comfortable, worn-in feeling, like Outkast used to do.  K.R.I.T. is dope, and puts a lot of words together well – nice metas and double up schemes.  He’s not trying to be Outkast, UGK, or T.I., although he’s clear he favors them in certain aspects.  The production is very Dungeon Family at times.  Being from the South, it’s a very familiar feeling and sound.  It’s about the heavy 808s, the soulful vocals, and talking about rims/woodgrain finishes on the ‘Lac.  It’s also about the everyday grind of being in the South, Mississippi in this case.  There is a consciousness that pops in and out of the mixtape – similar to Outkast’s releases.  But ultimately, this is riding music – chilling with your friends, parking lot stunting, and generally relaxing.

Grade: A-.  Doper than most of the major/minor releases in the past year.
