Mississippi’s Big K.R.I.T. came hard out of his deep south stomping grounds last year with his debut K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. Originally available for free through the MC’s myspace page, Wuz Here eventually got picked up by Def Jam. Since then, K.R.I.T.’s been busy. Just last month he put out an EP of tracks from Wuz Here featuring live instrumentation and vocal hooks care of Grillade, and today he’s officially “leaked” the lead single from his sophomore full-length, Returnof4eva.
“Dreamin'” is cut from the same cloth as the other mid-tempo, introspective tracks from Wuz Here–many of which ended up on the Grillade EP. K.R.I.T.’s silky drawl rolls around on top of his own reverb-tinged soul loop, espousing the struggles and determination which landed him on the precipice of a very enviable place.
It’s a bit flat compared to “Something” or “Neva Go Back,” but is certainly showcases the MC lyrical and mic skills as well as his simple but highly effective production abilities. (Here’s hoping this plays better sandwiched between sky-scrapping bangers like “Country Shit” and “Returnof4eva”.) We’ll find out how this stacks up against the rest of his new material on March 22nd when Retrunof4eva drops.
