“Im doin the norm, and not what it takes, I keep foldin’ my cards and you keep raising the stakes, til we forget about us and what we have is too late, I know in your heart you ain’t conditioned to race, so I steady the wheel forever pumpin the brakes, resort to the bottle thats how I deal with the shakes, pray for these haters thats how I deal with the hate..”—Big K.R.I.T. (via colombitalian)
“Being friends would make it harder to breatheSo if you ready to fly, just forget about meBut if you’re willing to try, then I’m willing to leapOut of the window of pain and fall in love at your feet”—BIG K.R.I.T. ( via old prince: )
“King is much more than the weight of a crown
As good as it feels, that ain’t the way that it sounds
Being single is cool ‘til ain’t nobody around
Then I’m chasing you down, cause you was ready to fly”—Big K.R.I.T. - Red Eye (via mrmoses717)
What does it say about you when your mixtapes are better than 95% of the ALBUMS that have come out in the past 18 months? Krit has definitely become one of my favorites in the short amount of time that I’ve been listening to him due to his relatable lyrics, production, and delivery…and 4Eva N A Day will definitely be heavy in my warmer months rotation.
“It’s late but I’m out on the creep
It’s been a while since I heard you speak
Hard to rest when I’ve been on this road
All I want is you next to me because you help me sleep”—Big K.R.I.T (via spacebrownie305)
Doubling up on the Big K.R.I.T. two days in a row. Don’t know if that’s ever happened before on Keep it Moving. It’s partly a function of my laziness but also the quality of my man K.R.I.T. I’m still getting caught up on his material that I’ve been sleeping on. My man is pretty incredible, especially since he’s producing and mixing all his own tracks. That ain’t easy. We have the deep south version of Kanye on our hands here folks. Lyrically my man has some legit substance. The expertly placed samples from Friday Night Lights put this over the top. This goes out to all the hometowns. What up Sacramento?!
While we all were impressed with KRIT going featureless on 4eva N A Day, I’m certain there were some of us who missed the presence of the big homie, Big Sant. While I don’t know what kind of solo career Sant will have, I do know he plays a great Robin to KRIT’s Batman, or as they like to call themselves, “The Alumni.”
Here’s one of my favorite Alumni tracks, off of The Last King mixtape. I think I mostly enjoy the sample, courtesy of Minnie Riperton’s “Everytime He Comes Around”. But Sant also solidifies his ability to hold his own on a banger.
“See it ain’t just a car, it ain’t just a whip, It’s a time machine, it’s a spaceship, it’s precious; You gotta take your time, you can’t be rubbing on them curbs, And hitting them potholes, You gotta ride clean and ride slow!”—
