Big K.R.I.T "Boobie Miles"
Big K.R.I.T, through mix tapes and guests spots, has proven over the last year and a half to be one of the true stars in the rap game, and 2012 should be his biggest year yet. He is releasing his major label (Def Jam) debut Live from the Underground, but first he has one more mix tape in his back pocket. The smooth but rollicking “Boobie Miles” is the first track released from his forthcoming 4Eva NA Day, the follow up to his Return of 4Eva mix tape from last year. While his album titles mercilessly slaughter the English language, his beats are syrupy smooth and his rhymes are poignant and hard hitting. The album cover from the new mix tape does a good job of setting up the conflicting worlds K.R.I.T lives in, with the young man sitting on a ledge, overlooking a rough looking city with a bible on one side and a bottle of liquor on the other. His music walks the tightrope of “conscious” and “gangster” in a way that he does better than most others in the game, and 2012 should see that style and flow getting into the stereos of many more people.
