Big K.R.I.T. & Yelawolf
As much as I can hate on the interwebs and how it’s destroyed the quality of music by flooding the industry with quantity, there are occasionally artists that I hear from small towns (Meridian, Mississippi?) and far away places that I never would of likely run into if it wasn’t for the interweb.
I came across this dudes mixtape a few months ago. Good to see he is picking up of some recognition. He’s part of that next generation of rappers who are talented, but won’t go anyway. (Not their fault. The game’s done changed…) But don’t mistake the fact he will never sell out the Garden in four minutes deter you from listening, if you are a hip-hop head. K.R.I.T. does a lot of his own production too.
Here’s a remix of Hometown Hero with Yelawolf:
First time I saw dude was in Pill’s video for Trap Goin’ Ham. The girls at work were swooning, I did some research and turns out the Alabama representative is a rapper. Definitely wasn’t feeling the first few times I listened to his mixtapes and he’s an acquired taste, but he has grown on me.
