If there’s an unsung hero award in rap, then Big K.R.I.T. is the unanimous winner for 2015. He’s concocted an outstanding — also surprisingly slept on — catalog of music for 2015. And hot off the heels of his DJ Drama-hosted mixtape It’s Better This Way, this Mississippi workhorse links up with Rapsody for ”Guillotine Flow”, which has the legendary 9th Wonder handling the production. Backed by Wonder’s gorgeous percussion and strings, K.R.I.T. goes off with an inspiring delivery — spitting bars and swagging the beat. Check out Big K.R.I.T. connect with Rapsody and 9th Wonder for ”Guillotine Flow” after the jump.
Rapsody is revisiting her Beauty and the Beast EP cut, “Don’t Need It,” with an official remix featuring Brooklyn emcee, Joey Bada$$. Joey helps Rapsody liberate the track with a new verse. Joey holds his own on Rapsody’s track and it’s always great hearing the 20-year-old rapper spitting fire wordplay. Listen to “Don’t Need It (Remix)” featuring Joey Bada$$ after the jump.
