Yesterday, Big K.R.I.T. shared 12 new freestyles on his SoundCloud, YouTube, and Twitter accounts. Stream his XVII/XVII mixtape above on YouTube and head to Audiomack for the free downloads of each track as an MP3.

In true mixtape fashion, the instrumental backing tracks are shamelessly taken from other artists' songs. The first track is Schoolboy Q and Kanye West's "THat Part," which is followed by tracks from artists like Future, Drake, Rae Sremmurd, Flying Lotus, Kodak Black, and Jay Z. K.R.I.T. puts his own spin on these tracks and while these may lack originality they are an interesting collection of beats that have been rocking the streets in recent months.

Lyrically, the man otherwise known as Justin Scott delivers some solid bars with aspirational lines that detail his success and that slick Southern bass sound he's known for. XVII/XVII is bad for a freebie, but his last couple releases (2015's It's Better This Way and 2014's Cadillactica) feature more of his original production and are better listens all the way through.

One of my favorite things about this mixtape is the cover art, which features great players in sports who have worn #12, including Tom Brady, Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw, Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cunningham, and John Stockton. There is even Michael Jordan who wore #12 for one game in 1990 after his #23 jersey was stolen and scored 49 points on Valentine's Day.

In other K.R.I.T. news, he announced on Twitter that he is no longer with Def Jam:
