Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2013

Remember last month when we made a hand-wringing post about the death of the MP3 and thereby the end of the downloadable Monthly Mix? Well, fuck it — ZIP FILE BACK. Thank you for your comments and opinions! This is blog-in-action. But, we know some of you enjoyed the ease and increased songchoice represented by… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “R.E.M.” Video

The song may share a name with a certain legendary Georgia rock band, but “R.E.M.,” the new track from the heavy-hearted Mississippi rapper and producer Big K.R.I.T., borrows a sample from a very different, albeit equally unlikely, source: James Blake’s “The Wilhelm Scream.” Blake’s disconnected falsetto trills haunt K.R.I.T.’s open-hearted struggle-rap. And the song’s new… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Shine On” (Feat. Bun B)

The Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. rose to fame by working up a sweeping, organic, entirely convincing personal take on mid-’90s country rap. So it’s a thrill to hear K.R.I.T. enlist one of the prime avatars of that sound, UGK legend Bun B, while he warps that sound in interesting new directions. K.R.I.T.’s new track “Shine… More »

Joey Bada$$ – “Underground Airplay” Video (Feat. Smoke DZA And Big K.R.I.T.)

Teenage backpack-rap revivalist hasn’t slowed down one second since bubbling up to national attention about a year ago, and now he’s got a new single called “Underground Airplay” that pairs him up with fellow underground rap journeymen Smoke DZA and Big K.R.I.T. It’s a particular treat to hear K.R.I.T.’s Mississippi drawl over a stark New… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” Video

“Rich Dad, Poor Dad” is a spare, reflective song from Big K.R.I.T.’s Live From The Underground video, and it’s about being a kid and slowly figuring shit out with a father’s help. And today, the song gets a video, from director KRSP, full of lonely images of K.R.I.T.’s Meridian, Mississippi hometown, with a teenage actor… More »

A$AP Rocky – “1Train” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.)

On “1 Train,” a massive six-minute posse cut from his forthcoming LONGLIVEA$AP album, A$AP Rocky has lined up pretty much every single rapper who’s had the internet going nuts in the last couple of years, setting them all up to go in over a slow-rolling Hit-Boy beat. Just recruiting this many great rappers on one… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Me & My Old School” Video (Feat. Lil Keke & Slim Thug)

For a new version of “Me & My Old School,” an ode to ancient gas-guzzlers from Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T.’s album Live From The Underground, K.R.I.T. recruited Houston underground rap veterans Lil Keke and Slim Thug to guest. All three rappers, along with their adolescent doppelgangers and a few prominent cameo types, show up i… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “What U Mean” (Feat. Ludacris) Video

“What U Mean,” the slightly reprehensible fuck-or-get-out track from Big K.R.I.T.’s Live From The Underground album, has a new video from Decatur Dan, quickly becoming one of the most dependable working rap-video directors. This one has K.R.I.T. and collaborator Ludacris, recapturing some of his early-’00s guest-verse zeal, firing away in crisp black-and-white. I love the… More »

Big Boi – “Gossip” (Feat. UGK & Big K.R.I.T.)

Big morning for rap music! And now here’s another thing to get amped about. Last month, we learned that OutKast’s Big Boi was planning to follow up 2010’s excellent solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty with a new one called Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors. And today, we get to… More »

Watch Big K.R.I.T. On Conan

Last night, Big K.R.I.T. brought his vast reserves of energy to Conan, smashing his way through the Live From The Underground single “I Got This.” It’s a weird match of show and performer, but say this for K.R.I.T.: He is very good at acting excited on TV. Also: When was the last time you saw… More »

Stream Big K.R.I.T. Live From The Underground

Long-anointed as the “next big thing” — or a next big thing — Meridian, Mississippi’s Big K.R.I.T. has dropped a string of critically beloved mixtapes like 4 Eva N A Day and the original hype-inciter K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. Now, he’s ready for his (often delayed) major label look Live From The Underground, something we’re beginning… More »

Curren$y – “Jet Life” (Feat. Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T.)

The crew behind the glorious “Glass House” team up again for “Jet Life,” a new one from Curren$y’s forthcoming The Stoned Immaculate. It’s a track that rides out a very Pilot Talk texture, a hazy number built on a bed of noodling, stoner-friendly guitars, but screwed up enough that you can hear Big K.R.I.T.’s influence… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Temptation (Remix)” (Feat. Juicy J, Waka Flocka Flame)

While Big K.R.I.T.’s style certainly pays homage to his Southern party rap predecessors, he’s maintained a more thoughtful, pensive approach through his career with things like recent mixtape 4Eva N A Day. With that in mind, it’s still pretty fun to hear him alongside the pre-eminent party rappers of our era, the ever-TRIPPY Juicy J… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Yeah Dats Me”

After a couple of years beasting on the mixtape circuit, the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. is finally gearing up to release Live From The Underground, his major-label debut, next month. We’ve already heard the first single “I Got This.” And now he’s released a similarly fired-up country-rap banger called “Yeah Dats Me.” It’s a jittery… More »

Watch Big K.R.I.T. And The Roots On Fallon

Friday night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the lovably fired-up Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. trotted out his hella-fun new single “I Got This.” The Roots, a band uniquely well-suited to take on K.R.I.T.’s humid organic thump, backed him up, and it was a ton of fun to hear the tuba taking on the song’… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “I Got This” Video

It’s amazing what a couple of simple tweaks can do. In his video for rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T.’s single “I Got This,” director Todd A builds on the swollen ’70s-soul undercurrents in K.R.I.T.’s music by taking standard rap-video shots — K.R.I.T. driving around his hometown and reveling among his supporters — and shooting them like a… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “4EvaNADay (Theme)” Video

Last month the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. released his solid self-produced mixtape 4Eva N A Day. Today, he drops the video for its title track, in which he lives in a cartoon world and throws word-bubbles out of his mouth. K.R.I.T. is a sincere type not exactly noted for his fun goofiness, but this i… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “I Got This”

Only a couple of weeks after releasing his searching, meditative 4Eva N A Day mixtape, the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. is giving us a very different side of him: A hard, snarling brag-rap track called “I Got This,” which finds K.R.I.T.’s voice slip-sliding all over G-funk organ-whines and cluster-bomb drums. It’s great, and you ca… More »
