In celebration of the King Remembered In Time's show in Seattle on June 1st, I wanted to drop off two of my favorite K.R.I.T. tracks. The first is the gorgeous Melanie Fiona-assisted "If I Fall"--one of the best off the Mississippi emcee's debut 2012 album, Live From The Underground. K.R.I.T. is the natural successor to Southern rappers like Houston's Scarface. He's an emcee able to make diverse songs from the deep, intelligent commentary tracks ("Hometown Hero") to the hype tracks ("Country Shit") to Trap music staples ("Money On The Floor").
I have an irrational love of "Country Shit" having seen K.R.I.T. perform it live in Chicago last summer. Along with "Just Touched Down," "Return of 4Eva," "Rotation," and "I Got This," this hype track is just one of the many songs that lend themselves to one of the best live acts that I've seen. It's incrediblly high energy and fans absolutely go nuts whenever he plays this song. If any of you are in The 6 next Saturday night, I highly suggest finding your way to El Corazon.
If you like what you hear, make sure to cop K.R.I.T.'s debut album and download the rest of his mixtapes (particularly K.R.I.T. Wuz Here).
Peace, Love, & K.R.I.T.,
