I know I’ve fallen off of my music posts ladies and the gents who love us, I apologize. I’ve been riding around, and I’ve been getting it … Anywho, our darling Big K.R.I.T. has just announced a new mixtape entitled 4Eva & A Day and that just brightens my whole mood.
“Based off the experience of touring in the past year I’m creating this free album from scratch as we speak. I have locked myself back in the studio– 4Eva & a Day coming soon on bigkrit.com,” the Mississippi MC-producer told Pitchfork.
I saw Justin and his friend 2 Chainz at the live taping of FUSE’s “Hip Hop Shop” year-end show on Wednesday, where I had a great time thanks to Jayson Rodriguez, Alvin Blanco, Isis Adewale, Bonsu Thompson, Shaheem Reid and Mike Jaggerr. Though K.R.I.T. and the artist formerly known as Tity Boi — who’s “Duffle Bag Boy” served soundtrack to a New Year’s Eve brawl Shannon and I almost had in Madison Square Garden in 2008, long story — didn’t perform my jam “Pimp,” I still enjoyed myself thanks to the good folks at FUSE. But for posterity and the promotion of ratchet — a term I literally explained to Gayle King this morning, Yes, that Gayle King — here’s “Pimp” featuring Big K.R.I.T. and our relationship counselor Bun B along with 2 Chainz’s mixtape hit “Spend It” from T.R.U. REALigion below.
ps. Thank you Shahendra, Timmhotep and Shannon for forcing me to download 2 Chainz mixtape at my birthday brunch, it is ignorant, hilarious and perfect for freelancing in your pajamas. In my sleep!
