Premiere: Big KRIT, "Hometown Hero (Block Beataz Remix)" MP3

It's a miracle that Alabama's own melancholy futurist production team Block Beataz are only now getting involved in this song, as it fits their sound perfectly. And actually, it's pretty subdued even for them, temporarily abandoning their tendency for grabbing samples from huge cheese-house songs and instead throwing some appropriately smooth, but dramatic strings that are a good contrast for Big KRIT's gruff voice. This remix is from KRIT's Wuz Here: The Grillade Sessions EP, which will be pressed onto limited vinyl with all proceeds going to The Roots of Music Foundation in New Orleans thanks to Yours Truly, who, in addition to doing beautifully shot videos, are now apparently also releasing records.
