Big K.R.I.T. – “R.E.M.”

Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. drops a new track and video, which features a pretty obvious–but awesomely executed–James Blake sample. The track will be featured on K.R.I.T.’s next mixtape, King Remembered In Time, which I’ve been told should be dropping this spring.

Here’s a review of K.R.I.T.’s latest album, Live From The Underground:

The Roots- “Make My” ft. Big K.R.I.T.

A new track from the Roots, whose last album, How I Got Over, was one of my favorite albums of 2010. The Roots’ next album will be titled Undun, and it’s looking at a December 6th release date.

The first track to drop from this LP, “Make My,” features Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T., which is a match made in heaven from the sound of this track. Though the verses on this song are short, I love the jazzy interlude the band goes in toward the end. Awesome stuff.
