Sound Session #491 (11-9-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on November 15th, 2014 by Hyphen


Another hectic week here in Seattle, but as always, we’re back with the latest episode of SNSS for you.  Peep the show for new tracks from Nas, Slaughterhouse, Wu-Tang Clan, Choosey, Little Simz, Drake, Saukrates, Jessie Ware, Flight Facilities, Broods, Big K.R.I.T., and more.

Speaking of K.R.I.T., be sure you cop his new Cadillactica album, which is hands down one of the best releases of the year.  Personally, I’m putting Krizzle in my top 4 right now alongside Ye, Drake, and Kendrick.  I’m too old to debate rappity rapp rap skills and all that.  I’m just talking about good music and people need to respect the insanely high quality catalog K.R.I.T. has accumulated.  This album is just another reflection of one of the most underrated cats in the game.  If you missed our recent interview with Big K.R.I.T., click here.

Side note: a lot of you have asked for us to create a podcast you can subscribe to or find a better way to distribute the weekly archive.  We’re working on a few things and hope to have an update soon.  We hear you, loud and clear.  For now, hopefully these links aren’t too janky…

Enjoy the show!

Big K.R.I.T. – Cadillactica (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 8th, 2014 by Hyphen

I’ve been talking to folks a lot lately about K.R.I.T. and how incredibly dope he is and I still think he’s highly underrated.  In my opinion, the 4 artists making the best rap music today are Kanye, Drake, Kendrick, and K.R.I.T..  Cadillactica is more of the same.  The album drops Tuesday, cop that!

Big K.R.I.T. on Sound Session (2014 KUBE Summer Jam Video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on June 19th, 2014 by Hyphen

Along with Kendrick Lamar, we sat down with another one of our favorite artists at KUBE’s Summer Jam last week, the one and only Big K.R.I.T..  We’ve had Young Krizzle on the show a few times before and he never disappoints.

This time, he spoke about his upcoming Cadillactica album, the criticism he received for Live From The Underground, and the differences in his creative process between mixtapes and albums.  K.R.I.T. also revealed he’ll be working with other producers on Cadillactica and gave us some insight on the tips they shared with him in the studio.  Among other topics, he ended by discussing the motivation behind his “Mt. Olympus” track, the South’s ongoing battle for lyrical respect, and the feeling of when fans connect with his music and support it on a deeper level.

Shout to K.R.I.T. and Dutch for the love, as always, and the First Ladies for filming/editing!
