Later this year, Big K.R.I.T. will release his sophomore album Cadillactica, the follow-up to 2012’s Live From the Underground. In anticipation, he’s launched “Week of K.R.I.T.”, which will see the release of a new song everyday from today through Sunday.
Kicking off the series is the aptly-titled “New Agenda”, featuring Rick Ross. On first listen, K.R.I.T. isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel; just refining his style. His production technique involves the sample pool of obscure soul and R&B samples, mixed more fluidly with the oomph and ferocity of trap music bass. Though K.R.I.T. has always been lyrically deft, he continues to gain confidence, his boastful rhymes about face-melting speakers keeping pace with The Bawse’s endless gloats about gold teeth and magazine covers. Listen in below.
“Twenty-fourteen is all about growth musically and new agendas,” K.R.I.T. told Rolling Stone. “I’m excited for my supporters to hear the sound I’ve been creating.” Listen below.
