The Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. rose to fame by working up a sweeping, organic, entirely convincing personal take on mid-’90s country rap. So it’s a thrill to hear K.R.I.T. enlist one of the prime avatars of that sound, UGK legend Bun B, while he warps that sound in interesting new directions. K.R.I.T.’s new track “Shine On” rides a jazzy, jittery, ever-changing beat that moves like mercury. It’s an intriguing indication of what directions K.R.I.T. might yet push his sound. Download the song below.
K.R.I.T.’s new mixtape King Remembered In Time is coming soon.
