So, over the weekend I got a change to hear Big K.R.I.T.’s latest project 4EvaNaDay a little bit early. Better than that, I got to hear it for the first time riding in an old school with some beat in it as opposed to on my laptop.
I don’t know about ya’ll, but I still like hearing music for the first time while in the car instead of on my computer. That’s how I fell in love with most of my favorite music: riding around, partying or doing something else I might not have had no business doing at the time. Krit agreed, which is why we chose to do a in-car listening session (expect more of these) to show you how 4EvaNaDay was intended to be enjoyed.
So, we hopped in the ’66 Chevy Impala (whaddup Dave), rode through the West End, hit 20 West down to Hightower…well, Hamilton E. Holmes, busted a right on Bankhead, skated up Northside, hit Metropolitan (Stewart Ave) and just listened to the music. I wanted to do it like this just show how hard this shit beat too. Plus, this is how we should put our folks up on the dope shit, pick they ass up and ride to it, live to it. I always remember a Slim Thug interview where a NYC-based interviewer was telling him why people can’t related to his type of music. He responded by telling them that it’s not meant for people who don’t damn drive. I felt him on that. If all I do is walk and hop on subways, you wouldn’t relate to half of the stuff that goes on in the music, so…oh well.
As we rode out Krit talked to me about the difference between seeing his name in a magazine and hearing his music in a car passing by, the concept behind 4EvaNaDay (peep how the tracklistings words go from light to dark to symbolize what songs are best for the day and which ones are best for at night) and the process he goes through to make his music.
Hope ya’ll enjoy it. Even if you don’t “look” at it, you can still be working and just listen to the video and get the same type of feeling.
