“I got a chance to talk to Krit about his listening session in NY, being the only feature on The Roots new album, what he looks for in a freestyle battle, and how he almost got drafted to a baseball team while out in Cali. ENJOY”
Well all I have to say is that V Nasty’s new album with Gucci Mane hasn’t sold a lot of copies in our store since it came out three weeks ago. I checked how many we sold at our store and two copies were sold at the time. David Banner has an issue with V-Nasty saying the N word and I do too. But at the same time blacks has also influenced her to say it too. I mean black people has to be one of the most influential culture in the world. I mean when blacks start trends white people follow for the majority. So, is V-Nasty wrong for saying it yes. Is her friends wrong for allowing her to say too? Yes. So not only do we have to look at her and say it is wrong but we also have to look at ourselves as black people and take part blame for it too.
Supreme Reaction agrees some of the statements below are kinda true but some idk, to say all hit makers cant rap is kinda one of those smh statements but there are some beats that backpackers have that are terrible I have heard them , and freestyle kings cant write bc making a song is not easy you might wanna even pick up a songwriting book as for R&B……. no comment that dont really exist anymore its a new age with a new style to it.
Banner says “backpack rappers can’t make a hit song,” that hit makers can’t rap and that “K.R.I.T. don’t need David Banner.”During a recent interview, David Banner spoke about the state of Hip Hop and his relationship with Big K.R.I.T. while touching on the importance of standing on your own, without cosigns. Banner shared his views on what he sees as a lack of balance in the world of Hip Hop, adding that there is a “problem.”The interview, done by 3 Little Digs, starts with Banner discussing the state of the game. When asked what the youth is missing, Banner explained, “I don’t think they’re missing shit. I think what ends up happening is we didn’t do what we were supposed to do. Kids are either a reflection of what you did or didn’t do. But the problem is, now, they are getting to an age where you have to be responsible for what you do now because you’re a man. The problem is, there’s no balance. I think a lot of the backpack rappers, they rap they ass off, but nigga, your beat’s wack. You rappin’, but nigga, you can’t make a hit song. You can freestyle your ass off but can’t make a hit song. Then you got niggas who can make hit songs that can’t fuckin’ rap. You got R&B singers that can’t sing.” He was also asked about up and coming emcee Big K.R.I.T. and was able to explain their bond goes beyond a cosign. “I told Big K.R.I.T. a long time ago, I didn’t want people to know that me and him was cool. I wanted him to become him. I didn’t want people to say David Banner made him. I think that cosigning shit? Nigga, you a man. Stand on your own. My dad always told us, ‘Fuck them. You stand on your own.’…I told him along time ago that people was gonna try to play me and him against each other.” This is the same advice Banner gave K.R.I.T. one night in New York. “I told him, ‘Go out and get my haters. make them love you. It ain’t about me. It’s about you.’ He called me one night. I was in New York. He said, ‘David Banner, come get on stage with me.’ I said, ‘Dude, it ain’t time for that. You step out in New York by yourself. You win them over by yourself. So, when it’s yours, you own it.’ And he did it. K.R.I.T. don’t need David Banner. He’s his own man.” The video can be seen below.
I have really loved Big K.R.I.T. mixtapes. He really knows what he is doing and he makes the beats too from what I have heard. This is a guy I am keeping an eye on and seeing if he makes the right moves. He has a bright future if he keeps it up. (Rest of Article Below).
Listeners got a sneak peek of what to expect on Big K.R.I.T.’s debut Live from the Underground with the tracks “Shake It” featuring Joi and “Amtrak,” both off of his mixtape Return of 4Eva. Speaking with Pyramid West TV, the southern rapper explained how “Shake It” came to be and reflects future music.
“I wanted to just do something different and show people the direction I’m going as far as my career. Something real soulful, but still having that southern drawl. Still rapping about things in the South that we do and that kind of shit,” he said. “That record and the record ‘Amtrak’ are just sneak peeks of where I’ma go with my music. Just really psychedelic and got a lotta funk in it. So that’s really just that, I was just writing and just wanted to do something different with that record.”
K.R.I.T. also saved some records from his mixtape sessions for Live from the Underground, and states that he doesn’t regret his choices. “It’s perfect timing now that I started singing on records more and people know I do that and they also see me collaborating with R&B singers and the funk aspect,” he said. “When I drop this new stuff, people aren’t going to be so surprised. Just the content, I feel there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world that needs to be touched on that I might’ve rapped about four or five months ago that might’ve been too deep. But now, there’s so much going on, people might want to listen to it.”
