It is good to get a new (and by that I mean remixed) KRIT track to play for the holidays because it reminds me to go back and listen to his highly acclaimed tape KRIT Wuz Here. We were a little late on KRIT over here at the studio hangar but it quickly climbed up our list and others’ as one of the top projects of the year. For this remix, he grabs the Houston underground rapper Killa Kyleon, who happens to be underrated, and everyone’s favorite weed head not name Khalifa for the remix and they all do their things on the verses. Do yourself a favor and download the project ASAP so you can acquaint yourself to what all the other blogs are talking about when they release their top 10 lists of the year. Shouts to TRU for the download link.
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.

EDIT: Also for those waiting on KRIT Wuz Here (Chopped & Screwed) tape with Micahel “5000″ Watts you can now get it at the link below.
This project is the one I regret the most about not posting in the last few months due to how much I now listen to it. Anyways, I will be up on the recent Def Jam signee from here on out and to start this I am posting the Michael “5000″ Watts chopped & screwed version for “Country Shit”. I am not usually a fan of the syrupy slow style in general but with K.R.I.T. his rhymes are fast enough that you get to catch the lyrics this time around and it still bangs. My biggest problem with the record is the poorly mixed part where 5000 speaks at the beginning and it sounds like it was done with a microphone to a computer but otherwise the song is dope. Lookout for the full tape chopped & screwed and available for purchase on August 9th.
