Although this Mississippi MC has been in the rap game for several years, it wasn’t until 2010 that Big K.R.I.T. was thrust into the spotlight. He dropped one of this year’s best albums — for free, no less — with K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, which was just released in its mastered form on iTunes. And from there, he’s rocked crowds with his huge presence and lively production. Oh, and he also inked a deal with Def Jam for his proper major label debut.
Now, he’s apparently got a new mixtape called Country Cu$$inz coming soon that’s set to feature this remix of the Adele-sampling “Hometown Hero.” Fellow up-and-coming Southern spitter Yelawolf tackles the track’s second verse and, just as he did on Big Boi’s “You Ain’t No DJ,” Yela nearly steals the show. But rather than merely dazzle with a rapid-fire flow, he complements K.R.I.T.’s style perfectly.
You can stream the “Hometown Hero” remix at K.R.I.T.’s MySpace.
