The great Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. has been hooking up with some serious Southern rap big dogs lately, most recently T.I. on “I’m Flexin’.” And now he’s got a new track with Ludacris, a guy he previously worked with on his own “Country Shit Remix.” Luda’s new track is a slow-churning country-rap banger called “I’m On Fire.” It’s good, but it would be a whole lot better if Luda would just rap hard and stop making sports-based quasi-puns. Swear to God: That guy has forgotten how to rap. K.R.I.T. steals the track from him effortlessly, and it really crackles to life when he shows up. Listen below.
The track will appear on Luda’s new mixtape 1.21 Gigawatts, out 11/15.
