cassettes Top 10 MP3s of The Week (3/15)

The top mp3s have gone through many incarnations since the beginning of Consequence of Sound in 2007. What used to be an exhaustive roundup of all the singles, remixes, covers, and undiscovered gems emailed to us any given week evolved into a compilation whittled down to our 10 favorite new songs. For 2013, we’re again changing up the format with the hope of giving our selections some added weight. We’re still posting about our 10 favorite songs, but they’ll be ordered in quality from 10-1. Who takes home #1 this week? You’ll have to click ‘Next’ to find out.

10. Big K.R.I.T. – “R.E.M.”

Just one year after debut LP Live From the Underground, Big K.R.I.T. is readying his return mixtape, King Remembered In Time. Preview “R.E.M.” sees the Mississippi rapper reassessing his place after his rise to mainstream attention, all over a beat sampling James Blake’s “The Wilhelm Scream”. Sure, he’s getting attention and the ladies are  paying attention, but that’s not what he’s after. Over the sparkling synths and clacking rhythm, he insists that his family and the art are what’s important: “Fuck a reality show I’d rather do a tour.” -Adam Kivel
