Big K.R.I.T. Reveals How Much He Spent on ‘4eva Is a Mighty Long Time’ Features

A star-studded line-up guest features appear on Big K.R.I.T.'s newly-released album, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, including T.I., CeeLo Green, UGK and Lloyd, but according to the Mississippi-born artist-producer, they didn't cost him a single cent.

"No, it's love," said K.R.I.T. on Everyday Struggle, responding to a question by Joe Budden about whether or not he paid for T.I.'s guest spot on the WLPWR-produced "Big Bank."

"When it come to these OGs, when they're like, 'K.R.I.T., I need you on this record,' I'm there, I'm on it," K.R.I.T. continued. "When you fuck with someone, it's a swap. It's all G."

Unlike K.R.I.T.'s two previous full-length albums, which were both released during his brief tenure at Def Jam4eva Is a Mighty Long Time was released independently. While this gave K.R.I.T. complete creative control over the project, resulting in him turning over the best full-length album his career, it also meant that K.R.I.T. was working with a much smaller budget for guest features, production, engineering and sample clearance.

Given his previous comments about K.R.I.T.'s "amazing potential," it should come as no surprise that T.I. delivered his guest feature on the house. And now, we can all look forward to K.R.I.T. returning the favor on Tip's next full-length.

B-Real Recalls Impersonating Flavor Flav & Lists Chuck D As An Idol

Los Angeles, CA – Prophets Rage — B-Real, Chuck D, DJ Lord, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk and Tom Morello — are currently on a worldwide tour in support the supergroup’s self-titled debut. Ahead AT&T Audience Network’s Prophets Rage concert special, B-Real, Commerford and Morello sat down for a candid interview in Los Angeles where they discussed a bevy topics.

In one the clips, the Cypress Hill MC talked about Public Enemy’s impact and recalled doing a mean Flavor Flav impression driving around with fellow Cypress Hill MC, Sen Dog.

“It’s a trip because when I was kid growing up — when I was fan the music before we started doing it ourselves — Sen Dog and I would be in the car and our other friends, and sometimes we’d do that thing where we’re saying the parts to these particular songs. And I would do the Flav parts because I had the high voice. Here I am 20 some odd years later doing the Flav fucking parts. I feel blessed you know? It’s something none us would have called.”

Later in the interview, he also elaborated on Public Enemy’s influence and explained how the pioneering Hip Hop group evolved into one he idolized.

“With Public Enemy, they were doing such a different thing in terms what they were talking about — social content, political content — and the style production they were doing,” he said. “It’s something that myself and a couple the other guys from Cypress, we all gravitated to it. They became like our idols that we looked up to, a source inspiration and something we were tremendous fans . And to be on stage with these guys and look to over to my right, and see Tim and Chuck bouncing around, there’s no greater feeling than that.”

The concert special premieres on Friday (November 3) at 9 p.m. ET on AT&T Audience Network DIRECTV Ch 239, AT&T U-verse Ch 1114 and on-demand through DIRECTV NOW. It features a live Prophets Rage concert shot on location at six major rock festivals around the world, including France’s Hellfest, Argentina’s Maximus and Louisville, Kentucky’s Louder Than Life Festival 2017.
