It’s been many, many years since last I ate the Breakfast of Champions, but I don’t remember it being very remarkable – sorta healthy, sorta crunchy, got soggy after a couple minutes… Once I figured out that it wouldn’t actually make me good at sports, it was No Wheaties for me from there on out. Thankfully, the second official leak off 2000 & Beyond emcee Big K.R.I.T.‘s forthcoming mixtape is much more impressive than the cereal from which it gets its name. Not only does the Mississippi native deliver one of the smoothest instrumentals to hit my eardrums in quite some time, but he also enlists the guest-verse services of two Booth-approved cohorts; New Orleans’ Curren$y and N.Y.C. mainstay Smoke DZA supplement the headliner’s triumphant yet thoroughly laid-back rhymes with celebratory bars of their own. Will No Wheaties score K.R.I.T. the Booth equivalent of a Super Bowl trophy? That’s for you to decide. In any case, fans will find plenty more to vibe out to on the artist’s K.R.I.T. Wuz Here mixtape, set to hit the ‘net April 5.
