Big K.R.I.T: Cadillactica [Album Review]

Big K.R.I.T. is built on the strength of his mixtapes, and he’s released a great deal of music. Yet Cadillactica is only his second retail album, coming after his 2012 debut Live from the Underground and 2013’s excellent mixtape King Remembered in Time.

The first two tracks serve as a reintroduction of all of K.R.I.T.’s production trademarks: synths, occasional blues guitar, traditional southern 808s.

Speaking of volume, the third iteration of “My Sub” is all about the “big bang” of the 808 bass kicks, because people “can’t twerk to the hi-hat.” No arguments here. There isn’t much to hear though until the guitars come back and the ode to the sublime wonder of the subwoofer culminates. The title track to the album ... Read More »
