I will be releasing a new EP called ELEVATE on FEB 12th on http://www.chamillionaire.com. The first 500 copies will be autographed and each autographed copy will be numbered. That means if you receive the 7th cd it will say 7/500 on it. There will ONLY be 500 autographed copies. I will only press up 1000 CDs total (Maybe I will make more later but if so I probably won’t make them available until later after the next one comes out). This way would make the amount of volume I have to ship easier for me to control. The CDs will ship on Monday February 11th and will release on Feb 12th. Elevate will have real songs on it and will probably have about 7 songs.  
 
Everyone who pre – orders a physical copy will be emailed a download link at 2pm (Central Time) on Feb 12th. This means you will be able to listen to it at the exact moment it releases, before you receive your package in the mail, before All Star Weekend, and before someone else gets it and leaks it. That’s the best way I can ensure that the people who support get to hear it first. 
 
The autographed copies will probably be sold out quick so I suggest you get one now if you prefer it be autographed. Sorry I will only be able to sign 500 a release. (Please don’t have a family member email me asking me to do anything different. It happens every time but this is already a lot of cds for me to autograph.) 
 
This will be one of multiple EP’s that I will do leading up to the release of my POISON album. Each EP will be different from the last one and none of them will be a part of any continuing series. The packaging of each of these EP’s will be different than the packaging I normally do with my mix tapes. I explained that depth in this mornings chamillionaire.com newsletter, so if you haven’t read that email yet then you probably should go read it.

Return of 4Eva Brings Return of Real Music

These days it seems hard to come by a classic album by an artist. By classic album I mean nine out of every ten songs is good. Labels are scared to take chances and are putting out half cocked albums usually frontloaded with singles and short on substance. At the same time most there are people who craft albums with so much “substance” no one cares. I don’t want to save the whales I want something I can ride to and 5 years from now I won’t be ashamed that I have this cd in my collection **cough** soulja boy tell em cough**. With classics albums hard to come by on iTunes, Amazon, or Best Buy, Big K.R.I.T. is giving away a classic album on datpiff.com. K.R.I.T., which stands for King Remembered In Time, produced and wrote the entire album. He gives you soul, swagger and conciousness without contradiction. “My Sub” an ode to the speakers that enhance the sound we all love K.R.I.T. mixes heavy bass production with good lyrical cadence and a southern twang that makes the song stand out. On Another N.I.G.G.E.R. Naive Individual Glorifying Greed and Encouraging Racism he both promotes the positives of what being black means in America but also discusses the stereotypes that we ourselves continue to bolster. The only place this album falters are on the tracks “Sookie Now” and “Made Alot” featuring David Banner and Big Sant respectively. Their additions to the songs did not add to the greatness that was already there. Still all in all 19 out of 21 songs makes this a classic that you need to download and makes Big K.R.I.T. someone you need to look for when he finally gets his Def Jam release date.
