“Whats good for Hip-hop may not be good for my soul” raps Big K.R.I.T. on his the first single off his upcoming sophomore album Cadillactica. Big K.R.I.T. makes a sharp departure from his usual sound, the laid-back, sleepy flow that has come to be the norm for the Mississippi producer/emcee, is nowhere to be found on “Mt. Olympus”. Krizzle’s flow is bombastic and aggressive from the start and grows more menacing with each verse. The fire in his voice is palpable as K.R.I.T. takes shots at anybody and everybody from Kendrick’s “Control”, to Drake’s singing rap, to the sorry state of radio rap, to the corruption of the southern sound. “King with a crown, humble and tall/ Tyrants never keep quiet, they’d rather be violent/ So I’m beheading them all!” is K.R.I.T.’s warning to the game. 5 albums in and hungrier than ever, be on the lookout for more Big K.R.I.T. as comes for Hip-Hop’s crown. Stream after the jump.
