Big K.R.I.T. – “Children of the World”
August 12

Not a track that is real new but a track that we haven’t covered on B&B, “Children of the World” certainly does not disappoint from the new Def Jam signee Big K.R.I.T.  A self produced track, K.R.I.T. goes hard on many of today’s societal issues, raising issues like the unaffordability of higher education and AIDS (to name a few), making it seem like a public service announcement more than an attempt at tapping into the mainstream hip-hop world.  However, needless to say, I consider “Children” to be one of his best to date.  The beat sets the intense, semi-accusatory tone of the track and K.R.I.T. uses a great sample to hold down the hook and hit the track with emphasis in teaching/warning the younger generations about the world they are coming into.  While he destroys his verses on the beat, the most impressive and noteworthy part of the track is the fact that the last third of the track is an unaccompanied (without a beat) freestyle, which K.R.I.T. absolutely kills.  He has a crazy delivery and flow that is highlighted by the Southern droll and style, a style I have never heard from a Mississippi rapper before.  Def Jam has been busy signing new talent to the label, from legendary (Big Boi) to rising stars (Curren$y), but, from this track (and the rest of K.R.I.T. Wuz Here), I consider K.R.I.T. to be atop the list.
