Big K.R.I.T. Has A New Album Coming And His First Single Is Worth Celebrating (Audio)

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look.

To help with that task, we’ve created two playlists. One features more recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so—while the other is throwback, focused on the 1980s and ’90s. We update each of these playlists regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.

This Throwback Playlist Celebrates The Hip-Hop That Is Never Played-Out. (Audio)

It’s been nearly 3 years since Big K.R.I.T. released his last album, Cadillactica, but that appears to be changing. Soon. In August, 2DopeBoyz reported that K.R.I.T.’s manager posted that the album was done and turned in for release. That post was subsequently removed, but tonight, K.R.I.T. has released a new single that may be the first from his new project. “Confetti” finds K.R.I.T. in fine form, and the “King Of The South,” looks to be eager to reclaim his throne from MCs who he raps are “f*cking up the game.”

In addition to new K.R.I.T., the playlist has been updated with highlights from Rapsody, Wu-Tang Clan, Lil Dicky, The Game, and SZA. Together, these artists join Oddisee, Mozzy, Meek Mill, Elzhi, TLC, Brother Ali, Drake, Saba, Kendrick Lamar, The Roots, Tyler The Creator, Vic Mensa, The LOX, Sean Price, and a host of others.
