Big K.R.I.T.'s 'Cadillactica' is one of the better tracks we've heard lately. The Mississippi emcee's upcoming album of the same name is dropping on November 10, but you can stream the entire thing for free on NPR's First Listen today.
The public radio station also offered up this review of K.R.I.T's sophomore studio album:
Vocally, he's at the top of his game on Cadillactica. Unlike the million and one responses to Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse of last summer, in which the Los Angeles rapper called out his competition by name, K.R.I.T. countered by stepping to the plate and elevating what he does on the mic. Here his delivery is aggressively relaxed, not angry. The chip on his shoulder remains, but it sits comfortably. He goes real quick without ever losing his dignity.With Cadillactica, do you think Big K.R.I.T is about to take the next big step to stardom?
