Mississippi country-rap auteur Big K.R.I.T. is readying Cadillactica, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed Def Jam debut Live From the Underground. And his new track “New Agenda” indicates he isn’t sticking to the underground too much longer. Though the beat is a classic, rustic, peanut-butter-smooth slow-roller from the rapper/producer, it features none other than superstar Rick Ross.
The pair trade boasts, and you can guess who comes out more modest: K.R.I.T. talks about his white walls and face-blowing speaker set-up, Ross talks about his pit bull’s gold teeth and his Rolling Stone cover.
“Twenty-fourteen is all about growth musically and new agendas,” K.R.I.T. tells RS. “I’m excited for my supporters to hear the sound I’ve been creating.”
They’ll be hearing a lot more in the next few days: Our premiere of “New Agenda” launches the “Week of K.R.I.T.,” which will see the release of seven new tracks online through Sunday.
