Big K.R.I.T. ft. Yelawolf- "Happy Birthday Hip Hop"

New MusicadminComment

Featuring Yelawolf, this Big K.R.I.T. track is from the Mississippi rapper's forthcoming mixtape, the Last King 2.

Obviously, I'm looking forward to this tape. Many of y'all already know how much I loved this guy's last release.

As usual, K.R.I.T. brings some great, jazzy samples and a fantastic hook. The surprise for me, though, is Yelawolf. I was kinda on the fence with the guy, thinking he was destined to walk in the steps of Eminem. Oh, I'll withhold judgement until the guy's next album drops in September.

What matters is on this track, Yelawolf kills it, referencing Southern greats like Skinny Pimp and UGK in his rhymes.

The Last King 2 should be dropping August 18th. I'm sure it will be downloadable on K.R.I.T.'s website.
