A lot has changed for Big K.R.I.T. since he came to A&T for Aggie Fest along with J. Cole last year.

            K.R.I.T. used his mixtape “4Eva N a Day” to get his fans hyped for his debut album “Live From The Underground.” After “Live From The Underground” dropped and did not live up to expectations, K.R.I.T. went touring and worked on his latest project, “King Remembered In Time.” With this mixtape, K.R.I.T. takes it back to soulful samples, motivational bangers and sincere lyrics that make him beloved by Hip-Hop fans everywhere.

            The mixtape starts off with a song called “The Purpose” which states all the trials he has been through and how he plans to improve. “Talkin Bout Nothing” eases in and brings that vintage OutKast Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik feel along with fast wordplay similar to Bone Thugs and Harmony. After that hard hitting anthem comes another one entitled “King Without a Crown” which is a phrase he has said since his “Return of 4Eva” mixtape. K.R.I.T. stands for King Remembered In Time, and in order to be a King, one needs a crown to solidify himself.

            The tape takes it up a notch as hook master Future features on the track “Just Last Week,” a song that should crank in the club. Only problem with this song is that it is a snippet meaning the final version will be for K.R.I.T.’s next album. Rap newcomer Trinidad James comes on the next song “My Trunk” and this maybe one of the songs of the summer as both rappers deliver hype, quality verses. The tape stays hype as “How U Luv That” featuring Big Sean gives that 90s 808 type feel and also pays homage to Big Tymers debut album with the same name.

            “King Remembered In Time” evens out as “Only One” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Smoke DZA brings that smooth cruising music Wiz and DZA are known for.

            King Remembered In Time from start to finish is great and easily the best mixtape of the year. Will K.R.I.T. use this momentum and continue this transition into his next album? Only time will tell. Until then, “King Remembered In Time” is something to relax to and learn from. Find this mixtape, and click play.
