DOWNLOAD: Big K.R.I.T. – ’4everNaDay’

Rapper and producer Big K.R.I.T.’s latest mixtape 4everNaDay is full of buttery hot soulful tracks and positive energy. While K.R.I.T is not the most lyrically complex or technical spitter, he more than makes up for it with his storytelling and ability to emote. You can feel and believe every word he says, this intangible charm puts him in zone that few rappers achieve. Add to this his often uplifting and motivational themes in his songs, which he pulls off without being corny, K.R.I.T. is the king of the so-called “conscious” southern rap once dominated by Outkast.

While 4everNaDay is not as progressive musically as an Outkast album, its lushness act as audible sunshine. For me this album came right on time, providing me with a much need boost, bringing some light to the dark my life currently reside in. I compare K.R.I.T.’s style to Basquiat’s deceptively simple yet producing great emotional resonance. This mixtape has me excited to hear what K.R.I.T. has in store for his up coming debut studio album Live From The Underground.
