Big K.R.I.T. f/ David Banner “Sookie Now” (2011)
Producer: Big K.R.I.T.
David Banner: “[Return of 4eva] is amazing. Well, of course I pick ‘Sookie Now,’ because I’m on the record. [Laughs.] But more than that I like the whole record. K.R.I.T., just by his voice, sounds like every record he’s talking about is about pedalling. The beat sounds like it, but it’s so much more. Again, it’s what you want and what you need at the same time. It’s crazy, the style and everything will just rock you into getting what you need. I love that.
“Even on the song ‘Sookie Now,’ on that beat, people would expect me to be talking about whatever. But that gave me the opportunity to talk about the hangings and a lot of the stuff that’s going on that people are scared to address. That’s a song that they could be dancing to it, then they come home from the club, and then the girl will be like, ‘When I was shaking my ass, did you hear what David Banner said?’ or ‘You heard what Big K.R.I.T. said?’ He says a lot of the things that people think, but are scared to really say. When he was like, he had gotten all these different things, the cars, the clothes, and the hoes, but he just don’t feel it’s enough to free my soul. That was the hardest hook of the year. I’ve heard nothing harder than that this year.”
