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.

UNION CITY OFFICIALS SAY MENINGITIS APPEARS ISOLATED, UNLIKELY TO

Union City officials on Thursday reassured residents that the death of a 60-year-old day-care worker from meningitis this week was unlikely to lead to an outbreak of infection.

The woman, whose name was not released, died Tuesday night at Jersey City Medical Center. An autopsy on Wednesday revealed that the cause was meningococcal meningitis, a bacterial infection in the tissue covering the brain or spinal cord, police and hospital officials said.

The bacteria can spread from person to person through close contact, but so far there has been no sign of additional cases.

“We just believe this was one isolated incident,” said Union City Health Officer Richard Censullo.

At a midday news conference, city officials announced that they had alerted parents of the 250 or so children who attend the day-care center at 209 47th St., along with other employees. The center was also cleaned and sanitized.

As a result, 35 adults and children were examined at hospitals, but none were found to have symptoms of meningitis. At Jersey City Medical Center, 25 health-care workers who treated the woman took antibiotics as a precaution.

The first symptoms of meningococcal meningitis usually appear within three or four days after exposure, and they resemble a bad cold.

A stiff neck, severe headaches, irritability, and restlessness are common symptoms. Others include fever, nausea, and vomiting. Most patients recover if treated early with antibiotics. see here symptoms of meningitis

Sixty meningococcal infections were reported in New Jersey in 1998, and there have been 42 so far this year, according to the state Department of Health and Senior Services.

Because symptoms typically appear within a few days, it is unlikely that any cases related to the woman’s death will appear now, Censullo said.

However, parents should consult their pediatrician or have their children examined at a hospital if they experience the symptoms of meningitis. Union City parents with questions about meningitis also may visit a city-sponsored clinic today at the health center on 31st Street.
