This week we talk about Big K.R.I.T.'s latest double disc effort, 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time, and whether we think this is his definitive album thus far. Also, we talk about the surprisingly dope SYRE by Jaden Smith and debate whether or not Cyhi's long awaited debut, No Dope On Sundays is a top 5 rap album of the year.
4eva Is a Mighty Long Time is Big K.R.I.T.'s most ambitious project yet, and while it doesn't answer all of the criticisms people have of him, it is him at his absolute best and it's his most listenable, yet still deep, album yet. If this doesn't prove that he belongs in the conversation with the Kendricks and J. Coles of the world, then nothing will.
