Mixtape Release Dates: Young Jeezy, Big Kuntry King, Mike, and Kurupt
Young Jeezy plans to drop a mixtape on the same day as Big Kuntry King and Red Cafe.
While Young Jeezy promised a mixtape some time soon, we’re getting one sooner than you might think. The mixtape, titled It’s Tha World, is slated to drop December 12th, sharing that day with Big Kuntry King and Red Cafe. Producer Mike WiLL Made It plans to drop a mixtape of his own on December 24th titled Est. In 1989 Pt. 2.5, the same day as Wale’s Folarin. In limbo moves Kurupt’s Money, Bitches, Power and Square Off’s The Preface. Stay tuned for updates.

GRAND HUSTLE’S BIG KUNTRY KING SAYS SWAG’S KEEPING THE FALCONS FLYING HIGH
With a crushing 27-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints to end the Atlanta Falcons’ hope of an undefeated season last weekend, SOHH hit up hardcore sports fan Big Kuntry King to get his take on the team’s playoffs hopes.
Win or lose during the regular season, Kuntry said he just hopes to see his Falcons make a strong playoff run.
T.I. co-signed rap veteran trumps street rap freshman
New feature! The world of rap blogging suffers from too much music coverage, and a dearth of actual music evaluation, so, every Tuesday, I’m going to pick my favorite rap album, EP, or mixtape from the previous week. This week, it’s Big Kuntry King’s 100% Kane. Big Kuntry King has been around since at least 2001. Along with the rest of the Pimp Squad Click (P$C), he made an appearance on “Heavy Chevys” from T.I.’s I’m Serious. P$C’s group album, 25 To Life came out in 2005, and My Turn To Eat, Kuntry King’s 2008 debut, was released on the same day as T.I.’s Paper Trail, which probably seemed like clever cross-marketing at the time, but ultimately buried the minor, though quite good rap album’s chances of finding the right ears. And so, it was back to the anonymous mixtape grind.
Now that we’re in the midst of a wacky rap moment that views Young Jeezy and even, T.I. himself as a bit out of step, it means a throwback, Southern rapper has absolutely nothing to lose. So, a guy like Big Kuntry King can throw a shtick-free, slyly artful mixtape out to the Internet and quietly best all the other releases from last week. Namely, XXL freshman Don Trip’s disappointing, one-note Guerilla, and Detroit blog gangsta Boldy James’ Consignment: Favor For A Favor, an endless mixtape best described as “Danny Brown for the struggle-obsessed, hipster-phobic, hip-hop fan.”
