’11 Best Mixtapes: #3 Big K.R.I.T. Return Of 4Eva

K.R.I.T.’s reliance paid off last year with his self-produced mixtape, Return Of 4Eva. When necessary, the Mississippi native curtailed his sound from ’90s boom bap (“Rise & Shine”) to contemporary bounce (“Return Of 4eva”).  He kept trunks rattling with”Sub” and “Country Shit (Remix),” but moved listeners on cuts like “Dreamin” and “Lions and Lambs.” With his debut, Live From The Underground on the horizon, it’s only a matter of time until the mainstream takes notice.

  • moveOver

    dis mixtape is classic hands down

  • ….

    why is this mixtape this high? is it because hes not mainstream? you people are ridiculous…i would bump cabin fever over this any day..

  • Empire

    You guys found 2 tapes better than this? Kendrick Lamar I could see, if you’re considering Section.80 a mixtape, but please don’t tell me LiveLoveA$AP is the other one. I like A$AP, but c’mon… really?

  • WINDYCITYG72

    This mixtape was Very nice , BANKS cold corner 2 gotta be next up if not this list is bullshit it already is half bullshit with that Wiz mixtape.

  • Word

    CLASSIC! Big KRIT on best Mixtape 2 years in a row. Thats a good thing but its also bad because I expect this nigga to be selling albums by now.

    Since this #3, I expect Friday Night Lights to be #2 and #Section80 to be Number one correct??

  • Word

    Oh wait, FNL came out 2010 didnt it? Disregard that last post….#Section80 def number one I just dont know what number 2 could be.

  • M.T

    the list was looking weak before this was posted. curious to see whats #1.

  • Milton Waddams

    Pick your #2 carefully, Rap Radar. I’m waiting outside with a tank of gasoline and a cigarette.

    ….burn down the building…

  • Truth (The real one)

    Stalley is definitely number one…Was a masterpiece.

  • Get Real

    FUCK YES!!!! Arguably the best tape of the year. Shit was made like an album. That Stalley shit was wack my g. GTFOH here w/ that bullshit.

  • http://god.com RN (( Real Nigga ))

    MEEK MILL…. DREAMCHASER BETTER BE THE BEST MIXTAPE. HANDS DOWN. MIEEK MILLY.

  • Word

    Ahh, I forgot about Dreamchasers. Thats probably number 2 then.

  • Chancey101

    UH THE SECTION 80 ISN’T A MIXTAPE @WORD AND I THINK DREAMCHASERS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1 AND ASAP NUMBER 2 JUST BCUZ ASAP ISN’T LYRICAL LIKE I CAN DO WHAT HE DOES BUT THE MUSIC WAS NICE ESPECIALLY WHEN UR HIGH BUT MEEKS TAPE IS FULL OF QUALITY SHIT THAT U CAN BANG AT A CLUB

  • KEEP ON HATING

    Meek mill # 1 raprrador or not

  • NYCTM103

    yeah I agree about meek mixtape it def should be number 1 and banks should be number 2 but Elliot is butt buddies wit Rozay so this was prolly a master plan to get Stalley sum buzz since Meek is already huge in the streets and is blowing up so my best bet is stalley number 1 and fabolous Soul Tape number 2

  • t

    yeah untill the mainstream takes over is more like it
    hopefully he can get one out before that happens

  • naddiman

    Hellllllll noooooooo fab soul tape should not be number 2 because the best song on there “yall don’t hear me tho” is also on meek meek mills mixtape he meek did a better version of it and if you don’t believe me go on YouTube and search yall don’t hear me tho and I guarentee meek name pops up first and it has more views but I think dreamchasers should be 2 and ludas 1

  • Able Danger

    Classic album status… it just happened to be free, just like FNL. Two dope debuts free of label politics and watered down boardroom expectations. This is the new blueprint on how to put yourself on.

  • http://www.eppsnblacc.bandcamp.com Blacc

    This was the tape of the year.

    Curren$y’s Covert Coup or Verde Terrace were also excellent, but i hope repetitive ass Meek Milly and ignorant azz A$AP Rocky dont come in higher than this…this was an effin’ album.

    clicc my name i spit that flame.

  • http://god.com RN (( Real Nigga ))

    currensy is over rated. he’s cool but he’s a little overrated… and talk about repetitive? currensy… what’s his favorite topic of discussion? weed, weed, weed, weed, and weed.

  • Converse

    RO4E is better than meek and fab tape combine? fuck outta here

  • GenesRus

    Repetitive ?? Lol currensy only raps about weed WIZ only raps about weed lol Meek raps about way more than that and he’s real plus he has a whole bunch of material he can rap about them other guys are limited to just weed because they never live the street life

    IT’S THE RETURN OF 4EVA….4EVA EVA….4EVA EVA……….

  • Real Deal

    This should be no 1. Only new artist that’s a a great rapper and producer. Can’t wait for his album

  • waloo

    This tape was off the chain! Downloaded it the day it came out and as soon as i heard the first secnds of country shit i knew it would be a hit. I wish his album had dropped sooner cuz i feel his buzz dying down. Either way dope mc..dope producer.
