5 Reasons We Can’t Wait For Krizz Kaliko’s ‘Kickin’ & Screamin’

Published: May 14, 2012 in Krizz Kaliko by

Krizz Kaliko - "Kickin' & Screamin'"

Krizz Kaliko’s Kickin’ & Screamin‘ is ready to drop and like the rest of Strangeland, we can’t wait to hear what the genius cooked up for this one.

With 17 brand new tracks, Kickin’ & Screamin’ is giving us a ton of brand new music from Krizz Kaliko and with everyone ready to “Spaz”, we decided to compile our top 5 reasons we can’t wait for Kickin’ & Screamin’.

Krizz Kaliko Uses DubStep On "Kickin' & Screamin'"

5) Dubstep Genius?

During a recent interview with HipHopDX, Krizz Kaliko revealed just how heavily Dubstep had influenced much of the production on Kickin’ & Screamin‘. Following an Excision concert, Krizz Kaliko decided to integrate the popular style into his music, something fans can hear on “Hello Walls” and “Spaz”.

Never afraid to be different or give us something completely to the left, we can’t wait to hear what else Krizz Kaliko dropped into the Dubstep mixture.

"Dream Of A King"

4) “Dream Of A King”

When he stopped by our Strange Music Podcast, Krizz Kaliko dropped some info on a big collaboration from Kickin’ & Screamin‘. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, “Dream Of A King” first came about through Makzilla and gave way to something special as Prozak and ¡MAYDAY! joined Kaliko on the track as well as his wife. Already known for creating powerful music, Krizz Kaliko is no doubt going to give listeners plenty to think about.

Seven On Krizz Kaliko's 'Kickin' & Screamin'"

3) 14 Tracks Produced By Seven?!

Look, we like other producers too, but it’s hard to neglect just how important Seven is to Strange Music. As the single biggest contributor to production for the label, Seven has created some of the most memorable music over the years.

Now, Seven has teamed up with Krizz Kaliko for a whopping 14 tracks on Kickin’ & Screamin‘. Strap in kids, things are about to get awesome.

Twiztid On Krizz Kaliko's "Kickin' & Screamin'"

2) Twiztid Gets A Double Feature

We love Twiztid, we do. It’s hard not to. When these guys aren’t busy ripping apart tracks they could easily have their own sitcom. For Kickin’ & Screamin‘, Krizz Kaliko reached out to Twiztid and scooped up two separate guest features – “Dixie Cup” and “Wannabe”.

After Kaliko proclaimed that he had never heard Twiztid rap like they do on the album, we didn’t need anymore convincing.

1) Krizz Kaliko’s Best Work

This one might be a “duh” moment, but considering Krizz Kaliko stepped up from the beginning and declared this to be his best album yet, we’re going to go ahead and ride with him on it. That level of confidence is pretty brave these days and we don’t doubt that Kickin’ & Screamin’ is about to raise the stakes for Strange Music’s resident genius.

    Forget the wait… Its over! Got the preorder and the album completely blew me away.  That shit was moving, all of my expectations were shattered!  Probably one of the best CD’s Ive bought in years!!!!

  • AzStranger

  • Djclay87

    Just got my pre-order this shits some dope shit.. best work so far Krizz!!!! Every  Track Is Killer!!!!!

  • Notorious_ace089

    Kali is one of my favorite artist. Very neck and neck with my top favorite rappers including Tech N9ne. Plus Rittz and Chamillionaire on one track. Monster Flows!!! TWIZTID!!!! The Dub step stuff is cool and I really don’t mind it I just hope it wasn’t over done on the album. A couple of songs cool but no more than that. Strange is notorious for heavy hitting real hip hop beats. Experiment but don’t conform. Can’t wait for the genius to drop some knowledge on me. STRANGE!!!! . . . music.

    1.Kalli always one ups his self so his music always gets better
    2. Strange Music has helped me grow up and get through situations
    3.kalli is about the music he doesn’t do it for the money he does it for the fans
    4. I love the new beats kalli is using so even dubstep fans can get into it
    5. I’ve been to 5 concerts at cains seen Krizz do his thing so I know this album is gonna be beyond what people expect

  • The Milk Man

    My comments on your reasons…
    5. Dubstep blows. Kaliko is just jumping on the hype while its popular. 
    4. Hopefully Prozak doesn’t ruin what sounds like a dope song. Kaliko and Mayday should be great together.
    3. Seven is a beast.
    2. Holy fuck Twiztid are absolute trash.
    1. Every artist should think their newest album is their best work.
