Big K.R.I.T. Plans to 'Be Around Forever'

2 / 18

'Kreation (Intro)' - K.R.I.T. sets off his sophomore release taking you deep in thought as he ponders how to create the perfect album/child, which in God's eyes can't exactly happen because no one is perfect. Digging deep into spirituality, he tries anyway with lines like, "Let's just take our time/ Pretend like we started this/ Pretend like we are creation/ Pretend like it's all on us to be perfect /And let us not pretend that we ain't made in God's images/ Let's make good on these promises and be perfect."(Photo: Brad Barket/Getty Images for Electus Digital)

'Life' - With God having his back, K.R.I.T. sees the world as an obstacle he can conquer as he navigates with no fears. Supplying the spaced-out production as well, K.R.I.T. spits. "I found life, in the darkest of times/ How can I describe what's God's design/ With these faulty eyes that often lie/ Stars shine bright but they often die/ I'm asking for permission to perceive/ I'm closer than I've ever been/ I probably shouldn't leave."(Photo: Chris McKay/WireImage)
