All the attention Mississippi MC Big K.R.I.T. has been getting lately is just the latest indicator that hip-hop is making 2011 its bitch. So much so that Trees, a venue known for booking predominantly butt-rock, 80's hard rock, or metal acts has been bringing in all the best rappers lately. (See: the aforementioned Big K.R.I.T., The Cool Kids, Beans, and Wale, with Yelawolf and Curren$y about to join that list as well). More of my thoughts on Big K.R.I.T. and hip-hop's recent domination here.
Of his latest joint "Time Machine" off his new Returnof4eva mixtape K.R.I.T. finds himself joined by H-town hero Chamillionaire. RCRD LBL had the following to say:
He mashes the cosmic and the crunk together on "Time Machine," where his flow—part Pimp C in voice, part Scarface in delivery—glides over a beat bursting with psychedelic synth patterns, gooey guitar licks, skittering hi-hats, and backslapping snares. H-Town hero Chamillionaire even drops by towards the end to provide the assist, and you might find yourself muttering the chorus for a few weeks after you hear it a couple times.Listen to it below.
