Damn... this album SLAPS.

Big K.R.I.T in the early 2010's was on a roll dropping album quality mixtapes and in my opinion this is the best one. It's 21 tracks, 76 minutes long with no duds in the track listing.

Still his best work to date...21 tracks of great southern hip-hop without a single dud...
His first true masterpiece, one of my all-time favorite mixtapes, and the best southern rap release since the 90's. KRIT manages to balance lyrical, introspective songs and syrupy UGK-style bangers about whips with ease, making for one of his most unified atmospheric records.
