The Needle Drop

The Mississippi quadruple threat is back with an epic double album that puts him at a new level.

HipHopDX

Thanks to 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, Justin Scott has once and for all ensured that his musical legacy is worth remembering.

Exclaim!

It's enthralling on a sonic level, but K.R.I.T. keeps up lyrically, his flow more than malleable enough to fit with the jazzy groove.

XXL

Big K.R.I.T. has managed to rise to the occasion and return to form with 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time. The opus is dominated by the reflective introspect and soul-searching that first made rap fans disciples of the Mississippi spitter and lacks the contrived attempts at radio airplay that littered his previous offerings.

A.V. Club
The tough, chest-beating first disc gives way to a second disc that’s just a little too fond of syrupy interludes. But as with his other releases, K.R.I.T.’s signature sincerity reigns supreme.

Pitchfork

K.R.I.T. is operating at the top of his game here, and the South has finally been recognized for its considerable hip-hop bonafides. But 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time still feels decidedly average.

AllMusic

4eva Is a Mighty Long Time is a mighty long album, at 20 songs and two brief skits, but K.R.I.T. clearly has a lot to say, and he expresses it with vigor and passion on this ambitious work.

This is the best Big k.r.i.t album since return of 4eva. Despite the track list having 22 songs there are hardly any fillers involved and as the first disc discusses more about the party jams, the second disc is more personal. I'm definitely loving this album from start to finish a great southern hip-hop album. I hope this album gets more recognition as it deserves as it is probably top 3 hip-hop album of the year for me so far. Favourite tracks of the album are Subenstein, Justin Scott, Mixed ... read more

This needed to be a double album, as both the MC (Big KRIT) and the individual (Justin Scott) are explored through music, and as such it comes across as a full and powerful expression of this musician. As such there are very heady moments as well as dancy and even emotional ones.

I don't return to it often now, but K.R.I.T.'s ambition is admirable here. This, combined with how cohesive and engaging of a project this album manages to be, makes it one of the better hip hop albums to have been released this year. It would be great if the first half was as strong as the second, but it's still a recommendation for any fan of 90's hip hop like Outkast or anyone who wants an ambitious Southern hip hop project.

Anyone who gives this album anything below an 80, loses all credibility.
