Justin Scott, aka Big K.R.I.T. hails from Mississippi and represents the South with great esteem. Today, the 26 year old dropped his eleventh mixtape, simply but elegantly titled K.R.I.T. (King Remembered In Time). The tape is entirely produced by KRIT himself, except for one guest appearance from the legendary 9th Wonder. Scott can spit bars for days but enlisted DZA and Wiz for a smoked out chill ride, Bun B for a southern anthem, BJ The Chicago Kid for some storytelling, Trinidad James for a banger, the beautiful Ashton Jones for a soulful love joint, Big Sant for some jabs and a snippet of the Future induced hook. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, Big K.R.I.T. is one of those underrated artists in Hip Hop, the man can spit, story tell, carry a track and produce all day.
Hodgy Beats and Left Brain of OFWGKTA have a side project called MellowHype (if you didn’t already know). In celebration of their upcoming LP Numbers which drops October 9, we get ‘MellowHypeWeek;’ seven free tracks. The upcoming record serves as their third studio album, but first under a major label (Sony Records). So if you missed out, or are looking to be introduced to some alternative hip hop, get all seven tracks here.
