Big K.R.I.T. has somewhat faded into the background since the lack of sales with his official debut last year. It’s not that he hasn’t been dropping quality music since, but the excitement and anticipation hasn’t been to where it was a year ago. Nonetheless, tracks like this remind you of why Krit remains one of the best emcees in the game under 30.
Rocking over Nas’s “Stay” beat (which never gets old by the way), Krit’s southern drawl goes perfect with the blues feel and the Mississippi lyricist destroys it. He does what all skilled musicians do — take real life frustrations and channel them into powerful sonic landscapes.
Well, at least we can say this an improvement from that pop monstrosity “Hey Porsche” that was released a few months back. The big problem here is that productions sounds dated (circa mid 2000s Neptunes). The verses are solid though, so maybe there’s a chance Nelly finds some solid footing before he drops his seventh studio album M.O.
Tony Touch’s long-awaited Piecemaker 3 is set for July 9. Today, we get two song leaks featuring four the 50 emcees on the album. The radio rip for Eminem’s track will get most of the attention, but unquestionably the song “V.I.P.” is the best leak. Check for Xzibit delivering a standout verse. With these previews, it’s very hard to imagine this album not delivering.
Prodigy wisely has made a video for one of the better tracks off his new Alchemist-produced album Albert Einstein. In this clip, Pee takes a night run to collect money from his various “business interests.” And as you can probably guess, he’s collecting his money by any means necessary.

With Kid Tsunami dropping his all-star cast album The Chase tomorrow (June 18), we are given one last leak featuring legend Masta Ace. The Juice Crew vet crafts a quick story about an aged emcee who can still captivate his city with hot lyrics. Take a guess at who Ace is talking about.
Don’t think Drake is gonna like this one. For his latest video, CB gets his hands on some unreleased vocals from the late Aaliyah to craft this enjoyable number entitled “Don’t Think They Know.” The interpolation from Jon B’s signature hit is a nice touch.
