SUCK MY MIX
A funny thing happened the other day, I was chopping it up with DJ Hot Sauce (@djhotsauce1), he told me I should check out Yelawolf’s (@Yelawolf) new artist, Riitz. I was surprised, because DJ Sauce rarely speaks on hip-hop artists these days. After a little investigation, I was able to sit down and put my ear to the Riitz’s mixtape “White Jesus”. Riitz delivers a spitfire, unapologetic flow accompanied by 808′s and white girls chanting. Making this spicy 12 the best eclectic, beer chugging, bass bumpin body of work K.R.I.T.’s new gem. It seems that the south still has something to say! Thank GOD! or should I say Jesus! The track “High Five” sealed the deal for me! and Riitz straight flipping and spitt’n some country ass shit but turnt up about 5 notches . No simple abc lyrics. This white dude could easily go hard on a track with twista and corey guns with no problem! Again another mixtape…this isn’t.”white jesus” can’t be reduced to what we now call a “mixtape” can’t disrespect this man like this! WoW! i’ve been seeing this white dude with wild red hair around the A for a long minute.Heard some of his earlier work which was aiiight but now….”Jesus” has step his Game up! I’m impressed and i like his spitfire. It’s like Outkast,Beastie Boys and Rap-a-Lot in one. I’m Stamping the hell out of this project! Riitz much respect! @Yelawolf good catch dog! “White Jesus” is an urgent listen to!
SUCK MY MIX
For those grown people who still listen to hip-hop. For those who grew up on Outkast and U.G.K ,there still may be hope in this sporadic and dismal genre known as Hip-Hop. My partner Big K.R.I.T from Mississippi is carrying the Dirty South torch into this digital world with a vigor that is uncompromising and on point! The artist Big K.R.I.T (kings remembered in time), embodies the delivery of Chad (Pimp C) and the soulful production of Organize Noize (soul food period). I dismiss this as a “mixtape” due to the fact that nothing sounds like a free style. He uses his own production, its very consistent and connected. Its truly a story ,an experience. I took my time listening to ” Return of 4Ever” the opening song, “American Rapstar ” really set the tone and direction of how important K.R.I.T.S world should be taken and definitely not lightly. He says “An A&R once told me “you can determine the worth of a song within 15 seconds of it playing”With complete n utter lack of the fact that it takes takes all 3 minutes and 40seconds of a song to comprehend what I’m saying’ You have to hear this dude and the soulful sound track behind that. I feel K.R.I.T when he says that and he has the body of work to back it up -all 20 tracks! This aint that singy song auto tune bullshit that has infected Dirty South Hip-Hop. “Return 4Ever” is spiritual,soulful,country,gutsy and banging! Stand outs on this album….well i can’t say cause you have to listen to all of it! K.R.I.T been putting in work for some time and ” Return 4Ever” is the beginning of his new era and The Dirty South.
And now here are the articles that I EDITED and DID NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FOR:

A funny thing happened the other day as I was chopping it up with DJ Hot Sauce (@djhotsauce1). “You should check out Yelawolf’s (@Yelawolf) new artist, Rittz (@therealRittz),” he said.
I was surprised, because DJ Hot Sauce rarely speaks on hip-hop artists these days. After a little investigating, I was able to sit down and listen to the Rittz’s mixtape “White Jesus.”
The twelve spicy tracks are eclectic, beer chugging, bass bumping pieces of work. Rittz delivers a spitfire; unapologetic flow accompanied by 808′s and white girls chanting.
“His artistry shows that the south still has something to say.”
The track “High Five” sealed the deal for me. No simple ABC lyrics. Rittz turned it up about five notches, straight flipping and spitting some country ass shit.
“This white dude could easily go hard on a track with Twista and Corey Gunz with no problem.”
Again, this is not just another mixtape. “Rittz can’t be disrespected like this, “White Jesus,” can’t be reduced to what we now call a mixtape.
I’ve seen this white dude, with wild red hair, around Atlanta for a long minute. Some of his earlier work was alright, but “White Jesus” stepped his game up.
“I’m impressed and I like his spitfire. It’s like Outkast, Beastie Boys and Rap-A-Lot in one.”
I’m giving my stamp of approval on this project. “White Jesus” is must listen.
“Yelawolf good catch dog and Rittz much respect.”

There’s still hope for those who listen to hip-hop and grew up on Outkast and U.G.K. In this sporadic and dismal genre, known as hip-hop, my partner Big K.R.I.T from Mississippi is carrying the dirty south torch into this digital world with a vigor that is uncompromising.
The artist Big K.R.I.T (Kings Remembered in Time), embodies the delivery of Chad (Pimp C) and the soulful production of Organize Noize (Soul Food period). I dismiss “Return of 4Ever” as a mixtape because none the tracks sound like freestyles.
He uses his own production; which is consistent and connected. I took the time listening to “Return of 4Ever” the opening song; and it’s truly an experience. “American Rapstar” set the tone and direction and the importance of Big K.R.I.T.’s words should not be taken lightly.
“An A&R once told me you can determine the worth of a song within fifteen seconds of it playing. With complete and utter lack of the fact that it takes all three minutes and forty seconds of a song to comprehend what I’m saying,” he said.
“You have to hear this dude and the soulful sound tracks behind him.”
This isn’t that sing song auto tune bullshit that has infected the dirty south hip-hop. Big K.R.I.T has the body of work to back it up all twenty tracks.
“Return 4Ever” is spiritual, soulful, country, gutsy and banging. It’s impossible to narrow down the stand outs on this album because you have to listen to all of them.
Big K.R.I.T has been putting in work for some time and “Return 4Ever” is the just beginning of his era and the new dirty south.
You can see the Big KRIT article on Jelly’s site astheworldspins.com and my name is no where. He is the author but you can see how the original looks and what I did. I just want to keep people honest, especially when it comes to me. I’m not sure when the industry started thinking integrity no longer meant anything but there are still people who believe in it even if it’s not the popular way to go.
Bradford raised me to have integrity and i will be successful and have respect just because I won’t try and get over to get ahead.
