In case you missed it yesterday, Big K.R.I.T. released 12 freestyles in one day titling the series, 12 For 12. He gives it his all on each track proving that he deserves more praise by hip-hop lovers.

What Big K.R.I.T. did was take 12 of the hottest songs out right now, add cover art of some of the greatest athletes in their respective sports and some incredible verses that range in subject matter. He mixed it up showing how diverse his flow could be and he also reveals that he is trying to get his paper up which can be heard on his "Lock Jaw" Freestyle.

Other tracks that Big K.R.I.T. freestyled on include Drake's "Hype," "4PM In Calabasas," Pusha T and Jay Z's "Drug Dealers Anonymous," Bryson Tiller's "Rambo," Kodak Black's "SKRT SKRT" and more. Yesterday the rapper also announced that he is no longer with Def Jam records.

The 12 For 12 series seemed so effortless for Big K.R.I.T. whose Southern flow matched the bounce or ride of each track he took on. The "SKRT SKRT" Freestyle in particular should be a fan-favorite as he uses a more chopped and screwed approach to it.

Big K.R.I.T. is an underrated rapper and as he says, he is just trying to maintain.

There is no doubt that he has raw talent and deserves more praise than he often gets. You can listen to/stream the entire 12 For 12 Freestyle series in the audio below.
