Man On Fire
On this EP culled from mixtape highlights plus two new tracks, K.R.I.T. smoothes his nimble Mississippi drawl over self-produced beats—anthems for hustling, and for trying to be a better person. As ever, he’s a Southern nostalgist, channeling Pimp C over sax solos and honeyed soul samples on “Boobie Miles.” But anxiety creeps in: On “Man on Fire,” prog-rock guitars underscore nightmares of dying, and on the breathless, hookless “Red Eye,” K.R.I.T. desperately tries to salvage a broken relationship.
