Own that track K.R.I.T.! The Mississippian goes in realer than real on his version of Yeezy’s “30 Hours” … calling it “$30” … but we’ll call it that pure uncut DOPE!
Losing friends over bread, that’s a different loss… Let me pay back what I owe.
– Big K.R.I.T.
Big K.R.I.T. kept it real in every way on this installment of Rhythm Roulette. The session was destined for greatness when he had a phenomenal 3-blind-pick (you’ll see). Lots of meaty gravy to extract and spread all over the tracks. The result was a dope beat; so dope, Shaka Zulu was already mouthing lyrics to it as he and K.R.I.T. listened. But hold up… the beat’s made and laid, and K.R.I.T. is already in the studio, and there is a hot mic right there…
Yeah, you already KNOW what he did!
Plus (on the realness), he shouted out a gang of fam at the end. Never forget from whence you came nor with whom you come up. Salute K.R.I.T.
“I ain’t ask for your plate. I just wanna be full.”

Big K.R.I.T. started this thing off SNAPPING!! Yep yep. Rapsody has been staying hella busy (as evidenced here…again). This “Guillotine Flow” (produced by 9th Wonder) she is guest beasting on with K.R.I.T. is SHARP! Listen close to the first half of Rapsody’s verse for a quick line on her trip out to the Westside to see legendary producer/performer Dr. Dre (who gave her the ultimate cosign). Nice!

On this K.R.I.T.ically Acclaimed episode of ESPN2’s Highly Questionable, Dan, Bomani and Papi welcome the Mississippi spitta Big K.R.I.T. Good times and a good range of topics covered: his humble beginnings in the game, to making a decent living and career of Hip-Hop, to working with the legendary BB King and more. Get on into it above with a simple click of that play button.
Wanna be King? You gotta claim that sh!t…

Get ready for a double-shot of bangers from Big K.R.I.T. Two joints from the “Cadillactica” LP (posted earlier, linked below) get visualized and mashed into a back-to-back presentation for you to bump. Check out the homage to woofed out rides, “My Sub Pt. 3” (Big Bang); and “King of The South.”
“Guilty As Charged” is Big K.R.I.T.’s contribution to the recent SupaHotBeats FREE project entitled “Free Game.” Both Big K.R.I.T.’s work and SupaHotBeats’ work are linked below. “Guilty As Charged” is available for streaming above.
Big K.R.I.T. (born Justin Scott) is the focus of the latest episode of ‘Breaking Through.’ The kid from Meridian (Mississippi, USA) is Hip-Hop to the core; evidenced by his story. Hip-Hop is a culture whose foundations and beginnings are best described as something out of nothing; just like K.R.I.T.’s. Watch him tell of having barely having a notion of a music career, then getting a notion but no way to put it down, then a way to put it down (e.g. equipment) but no money or help, then learning for self and doing for self as best he could… and getting better.
You might cheer or shed a tear. But you gotta watch.
Heat! Lyrical assist on “Pleasure Toy” (produced by Adrian Younge) provided by Big K.R.I.T. Bilal has most definitely got himself a hit track off what is sure to be an album full of them (pre-order “In Another Life” via link below). A record that holds maintains the track record, so to speak. Got a throwback feel to it; talking over the ride out portion of the track. Play it and like it.
The single, the video, and now The Tonight Show. Jimmy Fallon knows what he is doing over there. Check out this performance of “Soul Food” (featuring Raphael Saadiq) above (The Roots got their back, too). And follow the link below to “Cadillactica” – the latest album from the mighty Mississippian.
The new single “Soul Food” is one of my favorite songs off of Big K.R.I.T.’s latest project “Cadillactica” that’s out now. Great choice to have a brand new video for this soulful Raphael Saadiq produced joint.

Big K.R.I.T. Talks About His Music Evolution, Favorite Leader Of The Revolution, “Cadillactica” And More (Video)
Big K.R.I.T. Third Coast representative. Doing the Montreality point-of-view interview thing… building the buzz and giving insights of his life, coming up and through music (to him, better than folding f#cking clothes at Citi Trends). Oh, and “Cadillactica.” And he played Tecmo Bowl with THE RAIDERS (Raider Nation forever)?? Knew we liked this guy for more than just being a dope emcee.
For real though, so much dope info shared by K.R.I.T. in this. Check it out.
Mississippi emcee Big K.R.I.T. invites Raphael Saadiq (of Tony Toni Tone fame) to share in this new “Soul Food” from his forthcoming “Cadillactica” album (due out November 11, 2014, available for pre-order at iTunes now). Real music fans, esp. lovers of good Hip-Hop, should be getting real excited. K.R.I.T. hasn’t dropped the ball yet with any of what he’s served up so far in promoting that project. Lyrics and sage wisdom served with a side of Raphael Saadiq’s spicy sweet ‘sanging in this single seving.
Yeah mane (in the Big K.R.I.T. voice)! K.R.I.T. in Philly to talk about the November dropping of his Cadillac-crashed-on-planet-Earth musical project (called “Cadillactica”). Nice interview. Convo about the concepts, reliance on outside production for the first time in his career; along with K.R.I.T.’s desire to score films, to discover the next David Ruffin… the beard… the sneaker chase… a lot of good going on in the near 11-minute clip above.
Great block to add to the build up for the album release.
Woooo, haaave mercy! “Cadillactica” is due to drop November 11, 2014… but look at the video and see what the Honeyz in there are dropping. Mm mm mmmm! Plus, you KNOW Big K.R.I.T. is gonna bring it on the “Pay Attention” cut (featuring Rico Love).
It’s nothing… it’s easy! Sway put on the “Mind’s Playing Tricks On Me” beat and damn if Big K.R.I.T didn’t go in on it. Then hit ’em with some lyricals a capella from the LP like that was nothing… Effortless, but engaging, you wanna watch this Sway show snippet.
(Some insightful interview footage from K.R.I.T. after the jump, too.)
