"Kritikal "Breathe" on"

The up and coming wordsmith by the name of Kritikal recently dropped off this dope new video for his track “Breathe”. The cut finds the up and coming wordsmith speaking to all the folks that have been talking down upon the current state of New York City’s stance in hip hop.

The video is a gritty, mean, dark clip that matches up with the track nicely, finding the wordsmith showcasing his talents and putting on for his hometown; going in on this dope ass beat nicely. Kritikal does his thing on this one, (...) - Jesse James |

"Kritikal Premieres New Record on"

New York City bred rapper on the rise, Kritikal, aka The KRT, spits about his two true loves – smoke and pretty young thangs - on a new single titled, "High With Me.”

With Fear Factor Music Group's DJ Jemaine on production duty, this quintessential “zone out” joint features a healthy blend of synth and guitar, along with rappety rap 808s and a slowed hook custom built for getting stoned backdrop music.

"Kritikal x Khizman "FYG" on!"

From New York to Virginia, Kritikal and Khizman connect to bring us their latest collaborative single, produced by Sho-Down. “FYG (Fuck Your Girl)” isn’t a track about taking another man’s girlfriend, but it is a track about swiping one of your girl’s girls. Kritkal and Khizman’s single will be featured on their upcoming project NY 2 VA, which will be available November 11 via iTunes. - JB of

"Kritikal "Man of The Year" on!"

New York City rapper Kritikal returns to VIBE with a fresh freestyle laid to the instrumentals of SchoolBoy Q's "Man of The Year."

"Kritikal "Pray For Me" on!"

A rather familiar sound and name around these parts, Kritikal, is back once again! The up and coming wordsmith is back with a solid new offering today, again showcasing his raw and lyrical style, called “Pray For Me”.

The track finds Kritikal giving us something tough, effortlessly showcasing his abilities to craft wordplay about anything, getting deep on this one, and showing off some more of his talents along the way. Don’t sleep on this man. Check out the dope new track after the jump and speak your mind on it down below. - Jesse James


Still working on that hot first release.



Kritikal is the epitome of hard work and dedication. In 2009, Kritikal signed a recording agreement with multi platinum producer, Keith Clizark's Team Mash'n Entertainment, an Interscope Records imprint). He went on to successfully release his single, "Miss NYC", featuring Anthony M., which was nominated for Best Hip Hop Song at the 2010 Hollywood Music In Media Awards in Los Angeles, CA. Kritikal has since inked a new deal and released an album (The New Drug) with NYC based independent record label, Genius Mindz

Kritikal has had 3 HMMA's nominations including the 2012 nomination for his single "Fade Away", off his album "The New Drug". With all of Kritikal's hard work, focus and determination, the question isn't if he will achieve mainstream success, it's just a matter of when!

Between a country wide tour, late night TV appearances, music being licensed on popular television shows and top selling video games, features on sites like VIBE and StupidDOPE, and hitting radio air waves, expect nothing but big things from this native New Yorker!
