Big K.R.I.T. is currently touring Australia for the first time. The 28 year old Meridian, Mississippi native is coming off a successful sophomore album Cadillactica, which at its height held the number one spot on Billboards Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. In the lead up to Sunday’s show the southern lyricist was able to take some time from his busy schedule and give True Too an exclusive insight on his personal favourite 5 collaborations.
Here is K.R.I.T.’s top 5 collaborators (no specific order).
BK-That was amazing man because at first when they reached out I was excited anyway to be a part of a record that somebody from overseas that got their own thing going on. I wasn’t as aware of their movement until they reached out to me but then it was just exciting that they were reaching out and that they want me, a country boy, to jump on a record. They came to the states and I actually recorded the verse in the studio with them and just their vibe and their energy man was so laid back and so cool man, it really made it easy to create and come up with something dope and I really appreciate their attention to detail and content. It was dope man, it was definitely dope.
BK– The most important one that I’ve done. The record I did with B.B. King was one of the most influential and one that I thought would never have happened.
BK– That was on Kush & Orange Juice (Wiz Khalifa’s mixtape) and that was the first time a lot of people had even heard of me.
BK– It’s a record that I’m extremely proud of how it sounds and the emotion and the passion in it.
BK– That was the first time I ever sung fully on a song and the first time I’ve done a duet and that’s actually my girl so to be on a record with her on my album is an amazing experience.
