Big K.R.I.T. – “Boobie Miles” Video

Boobie Miles,” the elegiac inspiration-rap leadoff track from Big K.R.I.T.’s strong new 4Eva N A Day mixtape, now has a video that intersperses images of K.R.I.T. rapping and writing with rapturous slow-motion black-and-white footage of dudes practicing their craft at soccer, basketball, and BMX trick-riding. Va$htie directs. Watch the video and download the song below. More »

Download Big K.R.I.T. 4Eva N A Day Mixtape

Last month, we posted “Boobie Miles,” a new track from the laid-back but hard-striving Meridian, Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. That song was the first shot from 4Eva N A Day, K.R.I.T.’s new mixtape, which just hit the internet. K.R.I.T. produced the entire 17-track mixtape himself, and no other rappers appear on it; the only credited… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “King Pt. 2″

Earlier this month, we posted “Boobie Miles,” an early track from Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T.’s forthcoming mixtape 4Eva N A Day. Today, he released another track, “King Pt. 2,” in which he fumes about societal inequalities over Drake’s gospel-inflected “Lord Knows.” It’s total wheelhouse material for an emotive conscious-rap type like K.R.I.T., and you ca… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Boobie Miles”

Ascendant Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. released his excellent Return Of 4Eva mixtape last year, and he’ll soon follow it up with another tape called 4Eva N A Day, which suggests that he may have finally succeeded in his quest to come up with the most annoying mixtape title of all time. The first track we’ve… More »

Area Codes: 256 – Huntsville, AL

Like any great music scene, Huntsville has been percolating for some time now. Through acts like PRGz and the production duo Block Beataz, Huntsville became a pin on the rap landscape with its stylistically Southern, but immensely colorful, music. Eventually, Huntsville bristled toward “breakout” status on the backs of groups like G-Side, whose last two… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Moon & Stars (Clams Casino Remix)”

The FADER’s HTC X Squared MP3 series specializes in adventurous rapper/producer pairings, and their latest selection actually turns out to be a perfectly organic combination: Cloud-rap standard-bearer Clams Casino remixing Mississippi traditionalist rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T.’s Devin The Dude collab “Moon & Stars.” Rather than going with the hazy drift that made him famous, Clams come… More »

Jackie Chain – “Parked Outside” (Feat. Bun B & Big K.R.I.T.) Video

Motion Family’s new video for Jackie Chain’s Alabama trunk-rattler “Parked Outside,” like the song that accompanies it, works as a celebration of tricked-out ancestral American automobiles. As rap videos go, it’s not exactly revolutionary, but Motion Family know how to film the usual rap-video scenes with a narcotic sort of atmosphere that fits the track… More »

T.I. – “I’m Flexin'” Video (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

Even though he produced the track, Mississippi MC Big K.R.I.T.’s vocals barely appear on “I’m Flexin’,” the strong new comeback single from the just-out-of-jail T.I. So it’s cool to see that T.I. has granted K.R.I.T. a ton of camera time in Motion Family’s video for the track. Too bad that K.R.I.T. looks way, way too… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “Money On The Floor” Video (Feat. 8Ball, MJG & 2 Chainz) (NSFW-Ish)

Big K.R.I.T. may be an internet rap hero with a conscientious streak, but he’s also a man with a very ’90s set of rap values, which means he’s perfectly content to spend his entire music video throwing around money in some sort of strip-club/casino hybrid. It also means that Motion Family’s clip for K.R.I.T.’s slow-crawl… More »

Ludacris – “I’m On Fire” (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

The great Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. has been hooking up with some serious Southern rap big dogs lately, most recently T.I. on “I’m Flexin’.” And now he’s got a new track with Ludacris, a guy he previously worked with on his own “Country Shit Remix.” Luda’s new track is a slow-churning country-rap banger called “I’m… More »

The Roots – “Make My” (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

On the heels of an album announcement — undun, a concept album about the life of a man named Redford Stephens is out 12/6 — The Roots drop that affair’s first single, “Make My,” which features Southern rap revivalist Big K.R.I.T. who has been on a ton of decent tracks lately. Add another one to… More »

Jackie Chain – “Parked Outside” (Feat. Bun B & Big K.R.I.T.)

Huntsville rap stomper Jackie Chain is one of the people responsible for the cult-favorite single “Rollin’,” and now he’s the man behind the new jam “Parked Outside,” a truly satisfying piece of Southern-rap classicism. Texas legend Bun B shows up for a verse, and the excellent Mississippi producer Big K.R.I.T. produces the track and cho… More »

T.I. – “I’m Flexin'” (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

While the entire Stereogum crew was on the train to Asbury Park for ATP, T.I. broke the world off with “I’m Flexin’,” his first solo track since he got out of prison and his first-ever collaboration with the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T., a man who seems like he was genetically engineered in a lab specifically… More »

Big Krit (Feat. 2 Chainz & 8Ball & MJG) – “Money On The Floor”

This morning, Big K.R.I.T. called in to Sway In The Morning to drop “Money On The Floor,” a thick, unabashedly woozy Southern rap jam that plays to both K.R.I.T.’s rapping and producing strengths; everything about this song fits squarely in K.R.I.T.’s wheelhouse. The track features Memphis rap legends 8Ball & MJG as well as 2… More »

Berner – “Yoko” Video (Feat. Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa & Big K.R.I.T.)

It seems pretty safe to say that we all hate Chris Brown around here, so maybe it’s lame to post anything associated with him in any way. But the man did make the rap song of the year, so we’re going to have to contend with him for a while, like it or not. Like… More »

Big K.R.I.T. – “The Vent” Video

The hard-drawling Mississippi rapper/producer is only days removed from releasing his latest mixtape, and now he’s got a new music video. This one is for “The Vent,” an extremely emo song from his previous mixtape, Return Of 4Eva. Like the song itself, the video is both self-indulgent and oddly pretty and comforting. K.R.I.T.’s reflection o… More »

Download The New Big K.R.I.T. Mixtape

The fast-rising Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. has already released one mixtape this year, the excellent Return Of 4Eva. Over the weekend, he gave the world another one, Last King 2: God’s Machine. Where Return Of 4Eva was more of a fully fleshed-out new album, Last King 2 is mostly a collection of the freelance work… More »
