New Video: Dee-1 “Against Us (Remix)” Featuring Lupe Fiasco & Big K.R.I.T.

New Orleans rapper Dee-1 recruits his long-time friends — and bona fide spitters — Big K.R.I.T. and Lupe Fiasco for the remix to his 2014 joint “Against Us.” 

“The line-up for this song feels like an All-Star team,” Dee-1 tells Billboard. “Lupe is a legend, K.R.I.T. is a superstar and I’m the new guy making noise. Time to put some ‘respek’ on my name.” Here, the Christian rhymer also weaves in the “Our Father” prayer into his hook.

MassAppeal.com: Big K.R.I.T. “Sticks & Stones” (From Rhythm Roulette)

The people have spoken and we have heard them. After we presented the lastRhythm Roulette with Big K.R.I.T. we’ve seen many of you on social media asking for the full version of the song he crafted in his studio. Ask no more.

The mentality he enters on “Sticks & Stones” takes it back to earlier in his career–a younger and hungry K.R.I.T. Not to say that he’s any less ambitious today, but the hook conveys a sense of urgency to create something that others can feel in their gut with the crude resources available at the time. His verse explains that he’s always striving to improve himself and that his southern drawl might not be your cup of tea for a flow, but it does express something that he couldn’t do otherwise. And although the occasional piano trill may sound off key, it feels like a beautiful mistake that brings the soulful production together with the lyrics about K.R.I.T.’s one shot at his nascent career. It’s unapologetically Big K.R.I.T.

MassAppeal.com: Rhythm Roulette With Big K.R.I.T.

Apologies to future Rhythm Roulette participants, Mississippi’s own Big K.R.I.T. has really raised the bar. With his picks of Linda Clifford I’m Yours, Seatrain’s 1970 self-titled sophomore album, and Culture Club’s Waking Up With the House on FireK.R.I.T. cobbles together a soulful, nasty beat that he describes as “Today Was a Good Day,’ but a Southern version.” Just when you think he’s laid down some sick production, he just keeps rolling, adding flute trills and textural work until the result sounds like a masterpiece.

DJBooth.net: How Big K.R.I.T.’s “4eva Na Day” Changed How I Think About Hip Hop

4evaAlbum birthdays always come with a little bit of existential dread. Wait, Jay Z’sThe Black Album is 13 years old? College Dropout is 14?! Stankonia will be 16 this year, that album just got its learner’s permit to drive. See what I mean? Feel old? 

Earlier this month Big K.R.I.T.’s 4eva N a Day turned four years old, and instead of being met with that same “fuck time flies,” I thought, “It’s only been 4 years?!” Considering how much I’ve listened to that mixtape and how important it has been in my life, it feels as old and as important as projects that dropped over a decade ago. It may not be timeless in the way we talk about albums that dropped in the ’90s, but 4eva N a Day defies the laws of time as any truly great project does, just in a different way. In it’s own way.

Big K.R.I.T. is different. It’s hard to call him a legend because his career is happening as we speak and we don’t have the luxury of hindsight. Illmatic was released on cassette, College Dropout on CD, 4eva N a Day was a free project released online. It doesn’t fit the mold of any “classic” project release, and so in a way trying to craft a tribute article for an album that’s only four years old is a lot harder than one turning 15 or 20. So instead of trying to convince you of it’s “classic”ness, instead of fitting K.R.I.T. into a mold I love him for never fitting into, I thought I would speak to my experience and why I love it so much. Shades of Nujabes

For me 4eva N a Day’s legacy can be encapsulated not by saying it made people take Mississippi hip-hop seriously, not that it helped usher in the free album (instead of a “mixtape”) era, but one three song stretch, a series of songs that goes toe to toe with any three song stretch in hip-hop history. For me, 4eva N a Day’s lasting legacy is “Boobie Miles,” “4EvaNaDay (Theme)” and “Me And My Old School.”
