As Marvin Gaye put it on a joint off his 1972 Trouble Man LP, “Life Is a Gamble,” with any given throw of the dice having the power to make fortunes or take lives. On a freshly-released standout off new mixtape King Remembered in Time, Big K.R.I.T takes a moment to reflect on the vagaries of chance, paying his respects to homies who were cut down before their time and praying that Lady Luck will smile upon his professional endeavors. Joining the Mississippi-repping Booth fave over 9th Wonder‘s dreamy production (sampled from the aforementioned soul classic), BJ the Chicago Kid lends his vocals to the record’s hook. Feeling it? Then why not take a chance on K.R.I.T.‘s latest street album, available now for streaming and download via The DJBooth?
