The Mississippi rapper and producer Big K.R.I.T. has always radiated a sort of honest, down-home humility, but that hasn’t stopped him from making an ambitiously sprawling album. Cadillactica, K.R.I.T.’s second LP for Def Jam, has a vague cosmic concept and a whole lot of beautifully warped soul samples, and it sounds grander and more cinematic than anything K.R.I.T. has ever made. The album has appearances from people like Lupe Fiasco, Bun B, E-40, and Raphael Saadiq. We’ve posted early tracks like “Pay Attention,” “Cadillactica,” “Soul Food,” and “King Of The South,” and now you can stream the full album at NPR.
Cadillactica is out 11/11 on Def Jam.
