“What a difference a day makes. What about all the effort a day takes. The winding road of uncertainty. That undying feeling of urgency. Did I do all that I can do to ensure my success? Did I really give my all and am I really at my best…today. -Big K.R.I.T.- 8:04 AM”
Soft music that sounds straight out of a Spike Lee film’s soundtrack and familiar morning noises play behind the poetic first words of Big K.R.I.T.’s new mixtape, 4eva N A Day.
I mean, really. Who starts a mixtape like this? Big K.R.I.T does and that’s exactly what’s amazing about him. Yes, this southern rapper is no stranger to a “gently used” phrase or two about sippin’ syrup, old school Cadillacs, wood grain…oh and don’t forget the “hoes”. But he is much more than that. Underneath all of the Mississippi references and “Country S**t” is an intellectual message elevating the standards of today’s hip-hop. Exhibit A. ↑
