After hearing J. Cole tackle the track on Truly Yours, Big K.R.I.T. is the next to be inspired by the No I.D. production. On “KING Pt. 3,” Krizzle uses the instrumental to air out some stuff that he’s had marinating in his mind lately and lets his heart do the talking. You know the young king is always coming on his honest shit when the beat drops.
From Big K.R.I.T. to the fans. Pay attention.
As part the Big Mix competition, VIBE and McDonald’s teamed up to find by far the most impressive beats from upcoming music producers that truly deserve to get their name out into the industry. The winner happened to be Michigan natives Foreign Allegiance, who were given the opportunity to work with Big K.R.I.T. on a track titled “What You Know About It.” There’s no doubt whether they gave the rapper a chance to shine on the record, and we should expect to hear more from them in plenty of future releases.

K.R.I.T. speaks on his most recent release “King Remembered In Time” and jumps into discussing if music is still a challenge for him at this moment.
He also goes into speaking on working with producers for his sophomore album as opposed to only using his own beats and overworking himself.

DeLorean’s upcoming project Grace is on the way.

Snoop Dogg and Big K.R.I.T. were the latest artists to drop by MTVs “Rap Fix Live” to drop a freestyle today. Both MCs did the damn thing on the set dropping some dope bars and lines. How sick would a collaboration from these too be in the future?
