Big K.R.I.T.- K.R.I.T. IZ HERE
Big K.R.I.T. is no novice in the game, he's command the title of general in the ultimate position of MC producer. Although he has kept his style, his new album K.R.I.T. IZ HERE has expanded the lane he claims.
Since many were introduced to the Mississippi artist with his legendary King Remembered In Time LP KK.R.I.T. has gone through a series of evolution's that cannot be captured within a shallow scope. From working with Hip Hop southern Icons like UGK to the legendary B.B. King. The flavor expressed on K.R.I.T. IZ HERE stays akin to his foundation, but comfortably navigates along an industry feel. Whereas Cadillactica put BIG K.R.I.T. into his own bubble even further than previous self-expressive releases his new album pulls from a sound that is familiar to a larger audience without compromising his vision or sound. Features from notable artists such as J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Saweetie, Yella Beezy, and more.
Paying tribute to his souther roots, respectively as always, BIG K.R.I.T. delivers songs like Learned from Texas and M.I.S.S.I.P.P.I. from out the mud. That's always the best place to start, in my opinion when referencing his work. Songs like Outer Space tap into the more modern feel expanding content while referencing God complexions outlining the question of creation, employment, and his universe. I Made steps into a deeply intuitive feel as if K.R.I.T. was born in 1996, but with the perspective from wisdom and his integrity. Energy pulls us in tightly capitulating restraints with a creative melodic vibe that tackles our inner conceptions and ego.
Overall this project is everything you should expect from BIG K.R.I.T and then some. This album may go down as his second classic album, for life; multi' 'til the sun die.
