Big K.R.I.T.’s New Collabo Shows He’s A True Descendant Of The Dungeon Family (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)

Today (October 27) brings the release of Big K.R.I.T.’s new double album, 4 Eva Is A Mighty Long Time. The LP features appearances from T.I., Jill Scott, Robert Glasper, UGK and more. One of the most anticipated songs, however, is “Get Up 2 Come Down,” K.R.I.T.’s collaboration with CeeLo Green and Sleepy Brown, and it does not disappoint. With his rapid-fire Rap flow, and penchant for space age Funk, K.R.I.T. has drawn comparisons to OutKast, in the past, and he has been vocal about his admiration for the group and their influence on him. When given the opportunity to work with two of OutKast’s fellow Dungeon Family members, K.R.I.T. settles into the track like a long, lost relative. In fact, the cadence he adopts for the song is reminiscent of Big Boi’s trademark flow.

In addition to new Big K.R.I.T., the playlist has been updated with highlights from Wu-Tang Clan, Rapsody, The Game, and SZA. Together, these artists join Oddisee, Mozzy, Meek Mill, Elzhi, TLC, Brother Ali, Drake, Lil Dicky, D’Angelo, Kendrick Lamar, The Roots, Tyler The Creator, Vic Mensa, The LOX, Sean Price, and a host of others.
