This week's Throwback Thursday feature comes courtesy of Rap-A-Lot records. I was listening to Big K.R.I.T.'s Return of 4eva earlier today when I heard a voice that sounded really familiar. The song was Made Alot and it turns out the voice was Big Sant, who sounded a lot like Big Mike at the time.
Even though it wasn't who I thought it was- which makes sense- what better way to highlight one of the South's most underappreciated MCs.
Note: Be on the lookout for some hilarious dance moves though.
All A Dream
Note: The director of photography for this video, Matt Libatique, won an Oscar for his work on Black Swan.
Shout out to HipHop's Gerald Levert, Big Mike! The South's sound has changed over the years, but there was really quality ish coming from the region in the late 90's. And in a full circle kind of way, Return of 4eva is a throwback to that sound.
