Big K.R.I.T. – “Country Shit Remix” ft. Ludacris x Bun B | Official Video

It looks like Def Jam are trying to change the mixtape game, as after the online and then retail success of Fabolous’ mixtape, There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service (which was then re-packaged as There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music EP) they re-upped with Jadakiss’ retail mixtape, I Love You (A Dedication To My Fans). Now they have just released the “retail” version of 2011 XX Freshman Big K.R.I.T.’s critically acclaimed street album ReturnOf4Eva, which itself has been re-packaged as R4: The Prequel EP [See below for artwork and tracklist].

The first (retail) release off the EP is the official remix of “Country Sh*t” featuring two Southern Hip Hop legends, Bun B and Ludacris. According to HipHop-N-More the track, which was an actual bonus song on ReturnOf4Eva, recently scored it’s first honor as being the most added song on US “Urban” [I hate that word] radio, with 25 adds beating out the likes of international superstars  Rihanna (“Man Down”, 12 adds) and Trey Songz’ (“Unusual”, with 9 adds).

After the remix became such a hit with the fans, it was a no brainer that Krizzle would hook up with the surviving member of UGK and Mr. Southern Hospitality to shoot a video [See below].
