Big K.R.I.T. may have been born about a decade too late. Culling just a few tracks from his recent 4eva N A Day underground, the Road Less Travelled EP finds the rising Mississippi rapper once again indulging in an almost mathematical sort of Southern rap nostalgia. As a rapper, he takes a comfortable midpoint between Pimp C's nasal, brash pronunciations and T.I.'s effortless word rolls. But his predecessors tended towards hedonism, and K.R.I.T. remains a stern moralist. While his past productions borrowed heavily from the Cadillac thump of Pimp or 8ball & MJG, they're thinner here, progressing into more bluesy, or even quiet storm-ish, terrain.
