Finally freeing himself from the restraints of his old label, Big K.R.I.T. returns boasting his independence with his new album, 4eva is a Mighty Long Time. The LP marks his first since his universally acclaimed sophomore effort, Cadillactica, (no we’re not counting that silly cash grab of an album from his former label). Krizzle’s new found independence has brought about a truly beautiful body of work from the Mississippi native.
With twenty-two songs split into two halves, Big K.R.I.T. details his different personalities on each. Side A, titled BIG K.R.I.T., features the rapper that many of his fans have come to love and appreciate. He provocatively boasts his Southern style and swagger, recruiting some of the most prominent southern acts to help intensify the southern sound. Side B, titled JUSTIN SCOTT, features a more thoughtful and introspective K.R.I.T., taking time to touch and reflect on many different subjects ranging from love, family, and religion.
Throughout the first half, many of the songs resemble the sound and content to tracks on Cadillactica. “1999,” featuring Lloyd, includes the appreciation of a woman’s body as “Pay Attention” does. “Subenstein (My Sub IV)” is a continuation of K.R.I.T.’s “My Sub” series. Personifying the subwoofer, he compares it to Frankenstein coming alive. “Big Bank” keeps the braggadocios tone of “King of the South,” as he and T.I. flaunt their lavish lifestyles.
