This is K.R.I.T.’s first “real” album off of Def Jam. The success was always there but now it’s really in the works. A major label album isn’t a validation of K.R.I.T.’s work, unlike most artists it’s not the biggest moment of his career. So if you’re so fixated on Underground’s real or fake faults that you’ve lost perspective on everything K.R.I.T.’s given us, you’re what’s wrong with today in hop-hop.
K.R.I.T. has combined the southern hip-hop with some soul and the celebration of hardship to success. It’s fantastic he can take these two qualities into his own form that a lot of people don’t see. It really shows on the tracks “Sookie Now” and “My Sub” these unique forms of style. Ludacris is also featured on the track “What U Mean” which gives you a positive surprise. This album is definitely highly recommended and should be played over the airwaves. Hip-hop has been evolving so fast recently and it’s artist’s like K.R.I.T who can bring it to the table and blow your speakers through the ceiling.
