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.)
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.

“About this Kendrick sh!t… I ain’t drawn in by all this propaganda… Rap sh!t ’bout as real as Santa…”

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.
