Bio - from allmusic

Recalling the Dirty South sound of UGK and Scarface, Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. spent five years on the mixtape circuit honing his
skills before his 2010 release took his career to another level. The release was the mixtape K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, a groundbreaking critical
success that had bloggers declaring the South's future, while a commercial success as well, generating enough downloads and "likes" that the Def
Jam label took notice, signing the artist that same year. It was also the year K.R.I.T. -- which stands for King Remembered In Time -- appeared
on Curren$y's Top 40 debut, Pilot Talk, along with Wiz Khalifa's hit mixtape Kush & Orange Juice. His 2011 release Return of 4eva was
extravagant by mixtape standards, with elaborate cover art and guest appearances from Chamillionaire, Raheem DeVaughn, and David Banner, along
with challenging titles like "Another Naive Individual Glorifying Greed and Encouraging Racism." A track on R&B singer Chris Brown's 2011
mixtape Boy in Detention indicated that his commercial aspirations were still there as well, although the guest list for his 2012 debut, Live
from the Underground, would be a mix of true hip-hop (Eightball & MJG, Devin the Dude, and Bun B) and truly surprising (B.B. King, Anthony
Hamilton). The surprises continued on his 2014 album, Cadillactica, which took on more left-field genres and heavier topics.

Album Review - from allmusic

Like David Banner before him, Meridian, Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. was baptized in deep Southern slop and then cut through the competition
with a bit of an indie spin, but Cadillactica is on another level, and if the album cover makes it looks like one of Kid Cudi's space jams,
there's good reason. This sprawling, ambitious effort is the promise of Cudi's early soul-searching fulfilled, beginning with two interesting
intros, best of the pair being "Life" where K.R.I.T. testifies "I found life on this planet/Dammit, I've been damaged/But I won't take this for
granted" and then proceeds to shove and prove as if this were his debut. Check the frantic, techno-Outkast title track for unique and new proof,
while "Soul Food," featuring Raphael Saadiq, does just what it does on the tin, reminiscing about tradition in a mournful, "you don't know what
you got till it's gone" style. "Do You Love Me" carries the same weight when it comes to young love, and when it comes to church and prayer,
"Saturdays = Celebration" offers that there are no saints without sinners, and does so with the stately production of Alex da Kid, who sounds
primed to take on the heaviness of Kanye's Yeezus. All of these grand moves are anchored by the K.R.I.T. sound the streets already love,
including the low-riding "Mo Better Cool" with Wiz Khalifa and Bun B, plus the anthemic "King of the South," which spills out the speakers with
slurred samples and banging Jeep beats. Cap it off with Lupe Fiasco and the poignant "Lost Generation" and Cadillactica is an album where an
artist launches a superior second act while losing none of the essential elements that made the first so powerful.
