While most folks are sluggishly settling back into the daily grind after a long holiday weekend, Big K.R.I.T. has tasked himself with a rather ambitious all-day music project. Dubbed “12 for 12”, it sees the Mississippi MC rolling out a new freestyle every hour from noon until midnight today.
K.R.I.T. kicked off the series this afternoon with “That Part (Freestyle)”, in which he rhymes over ScHoolboy Q and Kanye West’s “THat Part”. He’s since shared his second installment in “Country Niggas Anonymous”, his updated version of “Drug Dealers Anonymous” by Pusha T and Jay Z.
Update: K.R.I.T. has unveiled all 12 freestyles. In addition to the two aforementioned tracks, the MC dropped bars over Drake’s “4PM in Calabasas” (“4PM @ The Kappa”) and Future’s “Wicked” (“Wicked Wicked”), as well as instrumentals from Flying Lotus and Rae Sremmurd. K.R.I.T. also tweeted that he was no longer signed to Def Jam.
