EDITORS’ NOTES

The title for Mississippi MC Big K.R.I.T.’s K.R.I.T. IZ HERE is a callback to his 2010 breakout mixtape K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. That particular project introduced the world to a preternaturally talented rapper and producer from an under-regarded rap territory. Nearly 10 years later, K.R.I.T.’s fourth studio album finds him indulging different facets of his personality as a performer while remaining committed to the lyrical deftness and “country rap tune” aesthetics he pledged allegiance to back when he first Wuz Here.

K.R.I.T. IZ HERE is a robust 19 tracks, implying an outpouring of inspiration, especially considering that his TDT project was released a mere six months prior. Within K.R.I.T. IZ HERE we encounter K.R.I.T. the player (“Addiction”), the lover (“Obvious”), the provider (“Family Matters”), the devotee (“Learned From Texas”) and the poet (“High Beams”), just to name a few. He is the studied MC, above all, and a proud Mississippian at a close second, acknowledging a long-standing chip on his shoulder in “Make It Easy”, where he raps, “Undoubtedly, probably, I’m like lightning in a bottle/A country boy killing your favourite rapper’s bound to shock you!”
