I don't know much about Big K.R.I.T. but whenever I hear his name I think of his song 'Hometown Hero' which sees the Mississippi artist rapping over Adele's 'Hometown Glory'. It's a pretty good track but the fact that I've been listening to a single track from a highly rated artist for the past five years highlights just how lazy music fans can be.
Well today's the day I educate myself because K.R.I.T. has just released a new mixtape entitled It's Better This Way, and as a free download I can't possibly pass it up. Acting as the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2014 album Cadillactica, the project features from Warren G and Ludacris, as well as up and comers like BJ The Chichago Kid.
The title track can be heard above and if it excites to listen to the other 13 tracks, the album can be streamed or downloaded below via DatPiff.
