Big K.R.I.T. & T.I. Show They Are Both Kings Of The South With Rich Rhymes (Video)
In a lofty warehouse, grilled up, talking on his money phone, Big K.R.I.T. flexes his southern rap flavor in the video for “Big Bank,” directed by Music Family. The track, which features T.I., is off K.R.I.T.’s independently successful and critically acclaimed third album, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time.
Although the video offers a minimalist approach and a dark finish, the warehouse shines bright with the Mississippi MC’s brilliant presence. The boastful premise of the track is paralleled with K.R.I.T.’s polished style and demeanor. Beyond Tip’s obvious appearance in the visuals, TransLee and Cyhi The Prynce also make cameos, foreshadowing their own involvement on K.R.I.T.’s forthcoming “Heavy Is The Crown” tour which kicks off on March 15.
The double disc, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, which dropped in October of 2017, quickly scaled the charts and took the prize as AFH readers’ Rap Album of the Year, along with garnering other well-deserved accolades. After his release from Def Jam, Krizzle was allowed the freedom to conceptualize and experiment as well as include who he wished in his vision. And in this case, that consisted of Lloyd, Bun B, Pimp C, CeeLo Green, Sleepy Brown, Joi, Jill Scott, Robert Glasper and other appropriate features.
The “Heavy Is The Crown” tour will span much of the US, kicking off in Little Rock, Ark. on March 15 and closing in Chicago on April 28.
