Video: Big K.R.I.T. "4evaNaDay"

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.

We Loved : 2011

[wpcol_1half id="" class="" style=""] We Loved 2011- Lianne LaHavas[expand title="(Disclaimer+)"]"We Love" is a big one click download of carefully selected individual tracks sourced from reputable blogs & artists we love. Please email us (info@putmeonit.com) if we've uploaded a non-promo track in error or to send us something you love. [/expand]

This collection is pretty much how my year in music looked, or at least how my year in free music looked (according to my iTunes I listened to Feist so much they'll probably report me for stalking).

The "cover star" is Lianne La Havas. For me she's a great example of the kind of talent coming out of the UK at the moment, making really incredible music but who a couple of years ago might have been stuffed unfairly in to a small box or passed over entirely as a marketing nightmare, instead in 2011 she was taking the industry by storm.

Whilst usually I would only expect most people to enjoy a handful of tracks from the usual "We Love" compilations, this really is a no-brainer selection of great music, so if you only download one from PMOI, let it be this one.

Music is never really "free", the artists who make it and generously share it with us put their all in to it and deserve our ears and our support, so please listen, spread the word, buy their albums and go to see them live.
