“4eva Is A Mighty Long Time” Album Review 

10/27 was a big day for hip hop. Big K.R.I.T., the unsung susperstar returned. He brought us his new project entitled 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time. The double album features two sides that reflect the two sides of the rapper. Side one is dubbed Big K.R.I.T. Which reflects his bass slapping, turn up, southern “swang.” Side two is hailed as Justin Scott his birth name that shows a more introspective take on his music. Both albums showcase each side of his musical ability, but he said that it’s hard for him to sequence the music together. With this piece of work he was able to separate the feelings. Standouts from side one include “Subenstein(Sub IV)” a continuation in the My Sub series which is a staple in his projects. “1999” featuring supporting vocals from Lloyd and is play on the classic “Back That Azz Up” by Juvenile. And “Get Down” featuring Sleepy Brown and a CeeLo Green verse that reminds us of his Goodie Mob days. Side two standouts are “Keep The Devil Off” which is one of the lead singles and puts you in the mindset of a black church back in the day. “Drinking Sessions” which is a look into the soul of the rapper and “Bury Me in Gold” which is basically a triumphant song and not to glorify gold but to show praise to the most high. In my opinion the entire album is a standout. K.R.I.T. is extremely underrated but if you pay attention to the bodies of work he is worth way more praise.
