That’s right Big K. R. I. T. has been grinding it out in the rap game for a minute now. The virtuosic rapper/producer’s CD from last year K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, was undeniably one of the best albums of the year. Likewise if his new album Return of 4Eva isn’t on a lot of people’s best of lists for this year they are tripping.
Resembling closely Outkast’s first album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, from 1994, Return of 4Eva has all of the same mojo as that album. Similarities are felt in stylistic choices and a few lyrics, but it more than equals the Atlanta duo’s effort. Mixing in a dose of UGK and the rap flow of T. I. this self described Mississippi country boy has produced another major hit. Full of thoughtful rhymes on consumerism, politics, economics, and lessons on the music industry. This album is epic, and has all the right elements of not only a great rap album but a great album to transcend into the highest heights of music.
Not only does he share the periods in his name like T.I., he will most likely soon share his fame, and well deserved. Plus he looks a little like Tracey Morgan.
