"Liberation"

"I remember being in Marietta, Ga., at probably one of the downest parts if my life, just creating music and trying to come up with content and not really knowing how I'm going to pay my bills and things of that nature and just hearing that song and the singing... The transitions from Cee-Lo Green singing to Big Rube's poem to back to Erykah Badu singing…the song got me through a lot of dark times in my life and it still does the same thing for me. So now I ultimately strive to make records where I can touch people in that same manner," K.R.I.T. told BET.com.

"The record to me sounds like one of those records where they were like, 'let's just do it for the people.’ It had nothing to do with trying to rap or spit the most, and even Big Boi was on that thing singing.”
