Big K.R.I.T. earned another Top 5 this week, for Cadillactica, his sophomore major label release. The Def Jam Records-backed LP is a balance of Krizzle’s foundation of car-audio odes, Southern slab ballads, and insightful looks at the world around him. One of the third variety is “Soul Food,” a track featuring Oakland, California iconic voice Raphael Saadiq.

The song appears inspired by the likes of Nate Dogg (choral harmonies) and Andre 3000 (final verse’s delivery), but while it’s passed-down recipe, Big K.R.I.T. clearly delivers only homemade helpings. In the latest behind the scenes look at Cadillactica, Heads can see Krizzle’s intent with the song’s theme, and how Ray nailed the beat, much to the surprise of the lauded Mississippi producer/MC.
