“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 . . I can`t be what you want me to be . . You shooting to high `cause you ain`t aiming at me . . One minute you calling out for the D . . then the next minute you wanna be free . . then the next minute you hollin` out peace , although i know it`s a war & there`ll be blood in the street . . If you call don`t be frustrated at me . Just leave your heart at the beep , `cause mine is harder to reach . . `Cause mine is harder to see . . & that don`t make it harder to cheat . . Being friends would make it harder to breathe , so if you ready to fly .. just forget about me . BUT if you willingly to try , then i`m willingly to leap . . out of the window of pain to fall in your love at yo` feet . . I ain`t the man you want me to be .. I guess that`s what`s been bothering me .”—
“They said it couldn’t be 4eva, wouldn’t be 4eva.
The grain ain’t enough, you gotta mix it with the leather.
The grind ain’t enough, you gotta mix it with the hate.
When it’s all over, watch what I say…
4EVA NA DAY, DAY, DAY, DAY, DAY!!”—
-BIG K.R.I.T. “4eva Na Day”
Video will be premiering tomorrow on MTV2’s SUCKERFREE COUNTDOWN!!
“And just like that…. K.R.I.T dropped the album cover to his much anticipated “freshman” album “Live from the Underground” which drops June 5. Thanks to twitter and K.R.I.T’s personal DJ, DJ Wally Sparks, we learned the man responsible for this cover along with that of “Return of 4 Eva” and “4Eva N A Day” is Eric Bailey of Growing Pains Studios. I, for one, am on the edge of my seat to hear what this project sounds like!”—
“Though one can’t be completely certain as to how conscious of university status, matriculation, or curriculum vitae either rapper is, don’t doubt the entertainment factor of having J. Cole and Big K.R.I.T. together for a show. The thick and sturdy Def Jam rapper K.R.I.T. - a highly regarded producer as well as a fierce-flowing MC - dropped both his major-label album Live From the Underground and his new mix tape 4Eva N a Day within the last year, and the mouth from Mississippi thrills throughout both Southern-fried recordings. German-born, North Carolina-raised MC J. Cole was the first artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label and on Cole World: The Sideline Story, his halting Drake-like delivery and easily sonorous flow make for some sweet, wiry sounds and a few happily hammy soliloquies worthy of Shakespeare. Hey, Shakespeare. College. Get your grade point average on.”—A.D. Amorosi, Philadelphia Inquirer (via prettypollyproductions)
Got a chance to see J. Cole & Big K.R.I.T. live in concert on monday..I was sitting there in amazement the whole time. We were front row and actually got a chance to have KRIT come literally 2 inches from us when he hopped off stage. Best concert of my life.
“Yeah’ I’m tryna turn this into somethin’
Turn this into somethin’
Yeah’ I’m tryna to turn this into somethin’
Turn this into somethin’
And we ain’t tripping on the sun because the stars out
Chrome wheels, candy paint, bring the broads out”—
Hey, what's up? I wanted to know how many singles Big K.R.I.T. has released so far for "Live From The Underground" and what they are titled. I'm a huge fan, though, I've completely lost track of which ones he said were the singles. I already have all the music up to date including the recent EP but I just can't recall which songs he said were the singles for the album. Thanks.
“J Cole and Big K.R.I.T. just did a 30 minute meet and greet with these 2 sweet and hella funny blind girls and signed a bunch of stuff for them, gave them merch and K.R.I.T. even gave one of them his zip up hoodie right off his back! They both also recorded a Voicemail for the other one. These girls will definitely remember tonight thanks to cole and krit. I love artists like this and props to mike the merch guy for seeing these two girls buying merch and facilitating the whole thing!”—Rock My World: Why i love this business
This weekend I experienced one of the best concerts that I’ve been to in years but the last concert I went to was a Usher concert. Big K.R.I.T and J.Cole blessed the stage of the White Oak Amphitheater yesterday April 21,2012. Even though I have never really listened to Big K.R.I.T I can tell that he really loves performing and is good at his craft. He has a old school flow with new school beats and a southern swagg. K.R.I..T’s style at the concert consisted of Diamond Supply tank, shorts and a snapback, simple but he was fly. Since I didnt know many songs I received a chance to listen to his lyrics and lets just say he has bars for days , I guess growing up in Mississippi can be beneficial because he really connected with us southerners. I also received a copy of his latest mixtape 4eva N a Day.
