Big K.R.I.T.’s a pretty shrewd businessman – while he waits for his debut record on a mainstream label, Live from the Underground to drop on June 5th, he’s building more buzz among music fans of all, um, levels by releasing a shortened version of his newest mixtape as a brief EP called 4eva N A Day (Road Less Traveled Edition). All Robert Frost references aside, the EP contains some of the earlier mixtape’s most accessible tracks, and a new song called “Sideline.” Over an understated piano beat, K.R.I.T. lays down a speedy, smart, and impressively tight series of verses about disappointment and struggle. Check this out while you wait for K.R.I.T.’s debut to drop June 5th.
