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.)
A-Villa did a did beat run with enough range/change to accommodate the verse-a-stylings of emcees Big K.R.I.T., Termanology and Inspectah Deck for this new single “The Colosseum.” That album “Carry On Tradition” is due out November 4, 2014.
Big K.R.I.T. takes us behind-the-scenes for the multi-part ‘movie’ on the making of his album, “Cadillactica.” This first episode has the same title as on of his singles – “Pay Attention” (available on iTunes now, linked below). Footage in the booth. On the boards. Just a taste.

Big K.R.I.T. dropped a new track for a week straight to promote his new album Cadillactica droppimg this fall. He’s got some FRESH tracks out. Rick Ross, A$AP Ferg, and Childish Major lend their talents to the collection of tracks. I’m really digging that “Egyptian Cotton” track.
Gary Clark, Jr. with some soulful harmonizing, interlaced with the right touch of Big K.R.I.T. lyricism in a remix of “Blak And Blu” from the upcoming mixtape.
Soulful celebration on a track. Steve-Ography’s direction brings that through for visuals for “Multi Til The Sun Die” from Big K.R.I.T. Lyrics on the struggle and come-up while beautiful black and white footage shows K.R.I.T. paling around with some Hip-Hop heavyweights… stage diving… all in the midst of doing what he does.
‘History remembers kings.’

‘Quality over quantity always.’ – Big K.R.I.T
Inspired by Dr. J (NBA great from the 70’s, Julius Irving), killer rhymes over a beat sampling “For the Love of Money” (a funky jam from R&B greats of the 70’s, The O’Jays)… the quality is there! Beat by 9th Wonder. Lyrics by Big K.R.I.T. C’mon man! Click play and go behind the scenes and see the how two hit-makers brought it together for one hell of a track “Reign On.”
Oh, there is a FREE download of the complete single waiting on you… Go!
New Big K.R.I.T. The Mississippi emcee enlisted the Jamla Army and loaded the clip with “Gettin’ Mine” (featuring Rapsody and Heather Victoria; track produced by 9th Wonder).
Big K.R.I.T. delivering the lyrics spoken word style. True Rhythmic American Poetry (RAP) over a cold airy beat. Check out the visuals for “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by K.R.I.T. above. You can get the album – “Live From the Underground” (on which this single appears) – via link to an earlier post below.
There is something universal – and magical – about the exhilarating feel of an emcee rocking with folks who are rocking with him. Experience that with Big K.R.I.T. as he blazes the stage (to the delight of the crowd) for the first time in Paris, France! OOOOOH! And that bass hit at the end. Sick!
Statik Selektah and Termanology (moving together as 1982) dropped “2012” on May 22, 2012. Though the Massachusetts duo 1982 is a relatively new phenom on the Hip-Hop scene, we got ‘em locked. Tracked a major blip on our scope days after they dropped the “2012” full-length release (click here see a recent video post for “Too Long”). Now, peep this track off “2012” entitled “Lights Down” (featuring Big K.R.I.T.).
