Review Summary: Big K.R.I.T. continues to produce relevant music that maintains a focus on overall quality and replay value.

2 of 2 thought this review was well written

There are certain genre defining moments at certain points in any artistic era where an individual feels that a particular group of artists are committing themselves to something that just feels right. It would certainly be a mistake to exclude the Mississippi representative from this list. While not personally standing up to my personal expectations, 4Eva N A Day still maintains that powerful Southern flow we've gotten so used to hearing from K.R.I.T. yet lacks the aggression of his two previous projects. The lyrics however still remain progressive if not even overwhelming at certain times throughout this LP. "If it's not broken then don't fix it" as the saying goes. I do however feel that K.R.I.T. isn't really daring himself enough to cross over into more experimental territory. (He seems to be right at home with the lane he's in right now). That isn't to say that K.R.I.T. isn't one of the dopest artists holding the South right now but how does this hold up to what Ludacris did a couple of years back on "Theater of The Mind" or what Big Boi has recently done with "The Lucius Left Foot". I would contend that K.R.I.T. still has room to grow and even though the instrumentals sound a little more subdued on this project than of his last two, I will continue to maintain that the lyrics still hit hard.

"Don’t be eager to run with crowds, stay in your lane
Pass the knowledge on to your team, but carry the flame."

(From "Boobie Miles")

With rhymes like this holding down the fort, it's going to be difficult for anyone to deny the deeper meanings that K.R.I.T. hopes to convey to his listeners. As for the concept of the album, it appears as though we're looking at the interesting experiences that a man such as K.R.I.T. might go through on a regular day and he additionally gives some exposure to the real social issues haunting urban youth in the South or even in general. I mean, how many artists out there these days will rap about the fond memories of their recently deceased grandmother on a track like "Yesterday". That's right my fellow Sputnik followers, not many. Big K.R.I.T. continues to produce relevant music that maintains a focus on overall quality and replay value. We may not all agree on the level of influence K.R.I.T. might have five or even ten years down the road but we can all agree that the man knows how to execute an incredible Southern flow over great self produced instrumentals and that my friends is all we can really ask for from the Mississippi native.

i hate the lite-jazz production after a song or two except the run from red eye to temptation which is just so much better for a reason i don't really know

This is good stuff, but like others have been saying, definitely not as good as ReturnOf4Eva.

His major label debut album is going to be so hot this Summer (I'm assuming he's been saving all of his great 2012 songs for that)

but yeah this the least good of his three "big mixtapes". Some of it is nice and pretty and chill but none of it is very memorable and it all kind of mixes together after a while. Like I can't imagine listening to this from start to finish and a lot of them just sound like another KRIT song.

Me and My Old School, Country Rap Tunes, Package Store and Temptation are great tho.
