’12 Best Mixtapes: #6 Big K.R.I.T. 4eva N a Day


As you can see, this King is remembered in time more in the mixtape category. Maybe it’s because the Mississippi heavyweight is allowed to remain in his comfort zone. Armed with complete creative control, K.R.I.T. mans his own production and doesn’t hesitate penning his passion. Mr. Scott displays his vocals on the hook of the soothing opener “Wake Up Saxaphone” and joy rides over the UGK influence-sounding “Me & My Old School.” K.R.I.T. kicks it into high gear on the reflectful “1986” and turns it up until the knob breaks on the soulful title track. On a serious note, the Def Jam artist addresses his label on “Handwritten”, tackles relationships on “Red Eye”, remembers lost loved ones on “Yesterday”, and shares motivation on the inspiring “Boobie Miles”. Southern hospitality at its finest.

    Yea, this was on point. They need to rerelease the trilogy like The Weeknd did and make some real money off this collection.

    unless bfk is number one, theres no way this shoudnt be it…1999 was great, so was blue chips and a few others, but they weren’t 4eva n a day

  • That Guy

    @ Big Homie. Did you take into consideration that he produced this entire album single-handedly? This is considered a street album. I’m curious what you rated higher than this cause I don’t see anything more creative, original, and lyrical.

  • Facts

    I agree with epinz.
    The only thing that comes near this KRIT tape is Gibbs, who really provided a great, impressive mixtape/album. Even greater than KRIT’s if you forget that KRIT produced his stuff all on his own for a second.

    I am really afraid to see mixtapes from Meek Mill, Rick Ross, or Big Sean in the Top 5. Disgrace. Politics. Media.

  • 5 years ago XXL fired Elliott Wilson for to much dicksucking and he later had throat problems for swallowing too much sperm

    I’m listening to this now and no way in hell are Officer Ricky and Meeks tapes better than this NO WAY

    Let me know what you think and leave a comment! Got some overlaps with RR and some other new ones. Naming 10 best is impossible but we are trying to throw some shine on projects that we thought were great from 2012.
