Big K.R.I.T. - 2000 & Beyond

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Big K.R.I.T.
Album:
K.R.I.T. Wuz Here

Revolutionary rhetoric seems to be a recurring theme in today’s musical lineup. Like fellow newcomer Phene, who blasts power-tripping cops and sinister neoconservatives on his currently-featured Freedom Ain’t Free, Big K.R.I.T. takes the opportunity to air a few political grievances on his Booth debut, mixtape leak 2000 & Beyond. Backed by his own retro-funk boardwork (featuring samples from Hughley Brothers crime drama Dead Presidents), the Mississippi native reminds us that, black President or no, life is still far from sunshine and rainbows for disadvantaged Americans. Though the emcee touches upon everything from prostitution and drug addiction to healthcare reform and H1N1, he saves his sharpest barbs for pastors more interested in lining their pockets than serving their communities: “I don’t understand, how you fit so many rings on a helping hand / tired of deception, but I’ll pay his kids’ tuition ‘cause I’m tryin’ to get to heaven.” Big K.R.I.T’s debut mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, doesn’t drop till April 5, but fans should keep their eyes peeled for the premiere of his latest music video, Hometown Hero.
