Next month, the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. will release his new album Cadillactica, and everything we’ve heard suggests that it could be really fucking good. We’ve posted first single “Pay Attention” and the great title track, and now K.R.I.T. has teamed up with soul-music veteran Raphael Saadiq on the lush, slow, ruminative “Soul Food.” It’s K.R.I.T. firmly in his comfort zone, meditating on everyday struggles and letting his voice sink deep into the grain of the track. Listen below.
Cadillactica is out 11/11 on Def Jam.
