Big KRIT - It's Better This Way

What with Big K.R.I.T. announcing a fall tour to close out 2015, we kinda predicted that the Mississippi Monster might drop a mixtape to commemorate the occasion.

So when it was suggested that K.R.I.T.ical would be releasing a new free project later this week, we weren’t entirely surprised.

What we WERE surprised about, however, is how Big K.R.I.T. sprung it on us.

Shortly after tweeting the mixtape’s cover artwork, Big K.R.I.T. bumrushed the Internet by releasing It’s Better This Way, a completely free tape and K.R.I.T.s first full body of work since last year’s Cadillactica album. Narrated by DJ Drama, and featuring appearances from BJ The Chicago Kid, Warren G, Young Dolph, K. Camp, WOLF de MçHLS, and Houston’s own DeLorean, to name a few, IBTW clocks in at fourteen tracks of southern fried goodness and copious car references. As it turns out, the “birthday song” K.R.I.T. released back in August, “86,” wasn’t a “loosie” but merely a glimpse into what more K.R.I.T. had in store.
