Big K.R.I.T. delivered his long-awaited fourth studio album K.R.I.T. Iz Here last month. The Mississippi rapper/producer returned with his signature flair, reminding just how much he's capable of. Now he's back to show off his versatility, spitting over Frank Ocean's "Novacane" for a freestyle on Power 106's LA Leakers.
K.R.I.T. immediately opens the freestyle by addressing the current state of rap, criticizing artists "sounding the same." Effortlessly flowing over the instrumental, he serves lines like "I told God I love my life and that this will suffice/Before I saw a flick from Spike, I was doing it right.” It's a perfect example of his Southern-flavored storytelling, rapping about his come-up to where he's at right now.
Big K.R.I.T. recently stopped by Sirius XM's Sway in the Morning to drop a freestyle over a more traditional rap beat. It would appear he's feeling extra engerized from the release of K.R.I.T. Iz Here, which featured appearances from the likes of J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Saweetie, Rico Love, Yella Beezy, and more. He kicked off the year with his TDT compilation.
The rapper is scheduled to start his From the South with Love Tour this September, starting in Tampa, Florida, and ending in Atlanta, Georgia on Nov. 16. Pick up tickets for the tour here.
