The Needle Drop

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


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


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.


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.

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.


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 quite possibly one of the best double albums hip-hop has to offer, one of the best hip-hop albums of this decade actually. Not the most ambitious thing we've had, but my god if this album isn't just a series of quality.

The execution of this thing is impeccable (especially on Disc 2), just one brilliant track after the next detailing K.R.I.T's thoughts and personality. The flow he has on each song is always flawless and captivating enough to get you to the end.

Since I'm approaching 350 followers, I decided to cover one of my favorite double albums of all time. This is also the album that solidified K.R.I.T as one of my favorite rappers of all time. Thank you all for your support!

Big K.R.I.T is an interesting case when it comes to artistic second winds. I think most, if not everyone, can agree that K.R.I.T should've been mainstream way before this point in his discography. Why shouldn't he? His collection of mixtapes proved not only his undeniable ... read more
"UNDERRATED" as "CLASSIC" are terms too used today to talk about rap. I do not use these terms for nothing and if there is a rapper that I consider "underrated", it's Big K.R.I.T. We all remember Andre 3000's legendary "The South got something to say" at the 1995 Source Awards, and today the South, and more specifically the Atlanta trap, has become the dominant rap region. Big K.R.I.T. does not come from Atlanta and does not made trap musik. But this is ... read more
The flows, writing, soulful production, Krit's personality on this album, oh god this is such a great album.
My favourite hip-hop double album...K.R.I.T. snapped as a rapper and, for the first time on a commercial project, as a producer with great lyricism, content, technical ability and diversity...he even works as a singer...

My only real issue are some of the commercial sounding production choices on the first disk and some instrumentals on the second disk which are either a bit too low-key or stylistically not that appealing to me...and Keep The Devil Off is unnecessary long imo...
