Big K.R.I.T. is a sucker for subwoofers. Anyone who’s followed his catalog could attest to that. Ever since his 2011 freebie project Return of 4Eva, the 28-year-old lyricist has sprinkled his albums with a chapter in his “My Sub” series, a narrative ode to his car audio.
After dropping “My Sub Pt. 3 (Big Bang)" from his latest LP, Cadillactica, Krizzle is considering creating a complementary visual.
“I already know where I’m going with the fourth one,” the Meridian, Miss., native, currently touring throughout the South, told BET.com. “I feel like I should continue to keep this going and maybe do a short film on it one day.”
K.R.I.T. says he has a name in mind for his third studio album, on which he’s already started working. Similar to the production on Cadillactica, he may outsource some of the music making. He’s been sitting on records with soul magician 9th Wonder.
“Me and 9th have talked about doing projects together,” K.R.I.T. says. “We’ve probably got like four records that have never came out... When it comes to sampling and understanding the kind of records that can have a crazy amount of soul but a rapper can get off on, [9th Wonder] understands that. So it made so much sense to work with him, because I was inspired by the way he chopped up samples. Sometimes it’d be a record that everybody's familiar with but you wouldn’t know what the f**k it is.”
While he continues supporting his latest album and cooking up the next one, the self-proclaimed King of the South appears on Logic’s latest track, “Top Ten,” and Ludacris’s long-awaited Ludaversal LP. He’s performing at SXSW at The Only Show That Matters on March 21.
