i dunno I feel like him taking it back to the old days is him being different and new at the same time. Like what do they want from him...im kinda confused by that. When Ball and G & UGK clearly rapped about the streets from a hardcore perspective and KRIT does not, I dont see how its not clear he is his own man outside of their influence. Same with Outkast...its not a far from norm approach he coming with...he is a hell of a lot closer to the common dude.
THIS! Although I've heard much of the subject matter before, I've never heard it like this before. From any Southern artist. Sure KRIT isn't reinventing the wheel, but I don't need him to. Especially in this day and age where everyone is fighting to sell records, we should praise this man for fighting to make great music.
