It’s been another good week for music and I just discovered another track that’s sweet to the ear. This one is from Mississippi native Big K.R.I.T. an artist I definitely slept on. His self-produced mixtape Return of 4Eva has granted him fame and promise within the industry. He even made it on XXL magazine’s top eleven freshmen of 2011 along with Meek Mill, Cyhi Da Prynce, Lil Twist, Yelawolf, Fred The Godson, Mac Miller, YG, Lil’ B, Kendrick Lamar & Diggy Simmons. This track alone should prove K.R.I.T.’s lyrical genius as well as his ability to blend with a well sample beat. check this out and you can get his entire tape here . Enjoy.
“RISE & SHINE… (The latest I could be was on time.)
You gotta get up, get out & get something.
Why rest, when all the world running?
RISE & SHINE… (If life is a dream, why sleep at all.)
Nothing ever comes to those who just wait,
Don’t every lose sight of your goals, just keep straight.”—Big K.R.I.T."Rise & Shine" #ReturnOf4eva
As Team Big K.R.I.T. it is our duty to make sure that theFANShave as much access to Big K.R.I.T. as possible. We all know how busy he is making music; for himself and others, that we don’t get much info from him directly. Since it’s hard to get in touch with KRIZZLE, we have given you a directory for the Return Of 4eva Team. These people know the same things; and sometimes more, that K.R.I.T. knows. They appreciate the support and love, just as much as he does. And if you ever need to express yourself, a few of them don’t mind conversing with you.
History remembers kings…
Big K.R.I.T.: Justin Scott (born August 26, 1986), better known by his stage name Big K.R.I.T. (King.Remembered.In.Time.), is an American hip hop musician and record producer from Meridian, Mississippi. He is signed to MULTI ALUMNI x CINEMATIC x DEF JAM RECORDS. He is the reason you are looking at this post and his music is our common denominator. He touched us all with his woodgrain soul. His music shows us that we are not alone, because he’s going through it too… And he will always be there when we need to vent. He has taught us that we can all be hometown heroes, because we are all as small as giants. He puts the dirty back in the south, as he breaks down stereotypes. He is not just another southern rapper, he is a southern emcee… And is sneaking this country shit through the backdoor. He is the last king of his generation, and he will be remembered in time. The world will know that K.R.I.T. wuz here.
