At this point, it doesn’t make much sense to call the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. “underground” anymore. He’s on Def Jam, his last album had 2 Chainz on one of its singles, and now he’s got a song with Rick Ross. K.R.I.T. produced “New Agenda,” his new Ross collab, himself, and it’s fun to hear Ross’s king-sized bluster on one of K.R.I.T.’s twitchy, traditionalist country-rap tracks; Ross compares himself to William “The Refrigerator” Perry, which is perfect. But more than that, it’s an ideal chance to hear K.R.I.T. sounding simultaneously confident and humble, and showing off those beautifully organic production chops. Listen below.
