David Banner is getting ready to do big thangs. To build some anticipation for his upcoming album, The God Box, Banner dropped Before The Box. This mixtape gives us a taste of what to expect next from the Mississippi rapper. The newest single from Before The Box, “Pain”, features fellow southern rapper Big K.R.I.T. as well as Tito Lopez and Coke Bumaye. As many know, Banner is not afraid to speak politically, and the featured rappers also show fearless criticism of politics and police. You can listen to the powerful track “Pain”, below.
BJ The Chicago Kid makes a pretty compelling plea for the job of pleasing his lady in this cut with Big K.R.I.T. As he works the vintage microphone and tries to sing his way into a sweet gig on an even sweeter melody, BJ lays out his resume to a sexy lady in the shadows. The song will be featured on BJ’s forthcoming album, In My Mind, which has no official release date yet.

With the collaborative work In Another Life set to release on June 30th, Bilal continues to remind us why he’s been relevant for so long. His hands have been in the works of many legends from Common to Slum Village. He helped Kendrick with To Pimp A Butterfly and Kendrick lent his hand on “Money Over Love.” His sound on “Satellites” is at once transcendent and piercing to the soul. Now he’s shown another side to his versatility with his recent release with Big K.R.I.T. The seduction of “Pleasure Toy” is completely funky. The cheesy 80s keyboard strokes stroke a pleasantly different cord in the mind. K.R.I.T.’s verse takes the appeal to a whole new level.
Ludacris has once again teamed up with Big K.R.I.T. for a new single. “Come and See Me” features Luda and K.R.I.T. trading off on bars with unmatched chemistry. All this happens perfectly over a Mike WiLL Made-It track. Listen to the new track below, which will be included on Luda’s upcoming LP, Ludaversal, due out March 31st.
Ludacris will be out in beautiful New Braunfels, TX along with Girl Talk on May 23rd. Get tickets for the show at the link below.
It’s always a good day when we get new music from K.R.I.T. In anticipation of his upcoming SXSW showcase next week, Big K.R.I.T. released this new freestyle to hype up his fans. The screwed up track with a Big Moe-like hook at the end is southern rap at its finest. Austin, get ready.
