Will I ever tire of Big K.R.I.T's car references? Probably not, even though the 4Eva N A Day mixtape referenced riding clean and being country over a thousand times (*perhaps a vague approximation on my part). I just don't care, because he is one the best things to happen to rap music in years, despite the hype emanating from those who prefer fashion and drug references he tends to avoid.
I find this video particularly interesting because the video for Boobie Miles was, for want of a better term, dry, and I Got This pretty unconvincing. K.R.I.T. doesn't sit comfortably in any current camp of music artistically, or at least not without the Dungeon Family putting forth much of note despite Big Boi's support. If anyone was capable of music of Stankonia or Soulfood quality for 2012 it's this guy. (No pressure). Sometimes it feels as though he is trying to cover all bases, or at least that's what I told myself about much of the "Last King 2 (God's Machine)" mixtape, but with this video hints at an ability to create his own lane [insert hilarious car refs here]. If you still haven't checked this guy out, please download the Return Of 4Eva as a warm up to his debut album "Live From The Underground", which comes out on 5th June 2012.
