Travel To Big K.R.I.T.’s Planet Of Cadillactica A Week Early (Album Stream)

With the new week, Big K.R.I.T. has looked to NPR First Listen (for the second straight time) to premiere his sophomore major label album, Cadillactica (November 11) more than a week early.


Guests on the Cinematic/Def Jam Records affair, per usual, include many of K.R.I.T’s inspirations, including the likes of E-40, Devin The Dude, Bun B, and Raphael Saadiq. Contemporaries range from previous collaborator Wiz Khalifa to A$AP Ferg, in addition to Krizzle’s road partner, Big Sant. On this effort, the Meridian, Mississippi native opened up the studio to share production with Jim Jonsin (Lil Wayne, B.o.B, Pitbull) and Rico Love (Young Chris, Diddy – Dirty Money, Usher).

With a further evolved sound than K.R.I.T.’s 2009-2012 progression, this album touches on love, family, and Krizzle’s place in Hip-Hop, with trademark songs devoted to cars, car audio, and sex.

For a sampling, begin with the Saadiq-assisted, “Soul Food.”

Hit NPR’s First Listen for the whole passport to Cadillactica.
