It was only three years ago the when the Mississippi rapper was freshman classmen of XXL. Big K.R.I.T has shown the rap world that he is still here and he can keep up with his fellow 2011 competitors – a list that includes Kendrick Lamar and Mac Miller. Today the young king of the south released his sophomore studio album “Cadillactica”, which features a healthy list of guest producers, singers and songwriters.
K.R.I.T welcomes us with southern hospitality and some amazing tracks. Working with names like E-40, Bun-B, Lupe Fiasco , Whiz Khalifa and a few others, the emcee delivers some surprises. The overall vibe of the project is quite reminiscent of fellow ATLiens Outkast – which we love. K.R.I.T shows listeners he’s fearless in his content and obsessed with creation, progression and perfection.
There are some serious bangers on this album. He takes us to his southern roots with a track titled “Soul food” which was produced and featured the soul legend Raphael Saadiq. The song touches on morals and love in the community – It’s simply a dish itself . He ends Cadillactica with a hard track “Lac Lac” that features A$AP mob member A$AP Ferg. Other standouts include “Third Eye”, “Mo Better Cool” and the title track. This is a whole different K.R.I.T from the man who gave us “Live From The Underground”, which landed him top 5 on Billboard back in 2012. “Cadillactica” is fresh and new and is still making its way to many ears.
