Big K.R.I.T.’s On ‘4eva Is A Mighty Long Time’ Being Chosen As Your Best Rap Album Of 2017

Big K.R.I.T. has always had the air of a DIY artist. However, in 2017 he took his independence to a new level. Going out on his own, K.R.I.T. launched the Multi Alumni imprint. He put his savings on the line to make 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time over the course of the last two years. While going for broke, Krizzle did as influences including UGK and 8Ball had done in the past. He released a conceptual double album. With self-confidence in the driver’s seat, Big K.R.I.T. buckled up, bringing new meaning to “glass house” in commandeering his most vulnerable and courageous album to date. Listeners responded, especially readers of Ambrosia For Heads, who voted it the Best Rap Album of 2017, in a Sweet 16 tournament. In the championship round, Big K.R.I.T.’s third album proved its might. In response, yesterday (January 3), AFH spoke to Big K.R.I.T. about this album, its creation, and why this effort marks a new peak in elevation for an artist that has already accomplished so much.

Ambrosia For Heads: You literally put your all into this album-emotionally, financially and spiritually—for more than two years. How does it feel to have 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time recognized by the listeners as the Best Rap Album of 2017?

Big K.R.I.T.: Brother, it’s amazing. It’s a blessing. It’s one of those things where spending so much time making music once again, I just went back to that [mind-state] of just wanting people to hear it. I really shed a lot of the competitiveness, and a lot the frustration and bitterness that I had on previous albums. This one was just all about doing exactly what I wanted to do. Either you love it or hate it. [I was] not trying to be neutral, and not really focusing on the sound of the music at the time. I was just doing what I felt, and I’m glad it paid off. It took two years to create the project. But that time was so necessary, ‘cause I was living life. I think it shows in the music. People can hear that hunger that I used to have, back on my previous works. It just shows through. I had a certain kind of freedom that I’ve never had before. It’s just a blessing to see the way that people respond to the music. It exceeded all my expectations, brother, trust me. All of them.

Respect-Mag.com: The ReIntroduction Of Big K.R.I.T.

In regards to reputation in Hip-Hop, the South has certainly come a long way. In terms of talent, artists below the Mason-Dixon line certainly had it and more; regardless, it seems as if the Southern Rap gods had to fight tooth and nail for genuine respect in ‘the game’ that New York City birthed. Now, those very legends have helped not only to put a permanent spotlight on the South, but also to affix themselves as Rap’s current crown bearers.

One artist that deserves to be included in this conversation: Mississippi mastermind Big K.R.I.T.The self-proclaimed ‘King Remembered In Time’ has been producing some of the best — no, the best country Rap tunes this side of Pimp C and André 3000. The many mixtapes and albums that propelled K.R.I.T. to icon status — from the classic K.R.I.T. Wuz Here to the how-the-f***-is-this-so-slept-on Cadillactica — are just as solid if not better than chart-topping projects from the peers who are compelled to salute him as the genius that he is. The truth is, out of the many styles that K.R.I.T. possesses, there are two that he’s probably most known for: the hard-hitting, pimp-esque blend that oozes swagger from the crevices of a Roland TR-808, and Justin Scott, the man bringing the introspective, the vulnerable and — for all intents and purposes — the higher-conscious. Either way, both deliver words best described as time-stopping and life-changing, further stamping his near-flawless legacy in music.

Given all this, RESPECT. was more than honored to chop it up with the Meridian emcee-producer during the promotional run for his latest offering, 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time, a sonically-breathtaking look into the aforementioned two sides of K.R.I.T. In addition to breaking down the album, writer Landon Buford got a chance to take things back to the essence of the virtuoso’s artistic genesis: you can consider this our true re-introduction to Big K.R.I.T.

KarenCivil.com: Big K.R.I.T. Talks His New Album And Creating As An Independent Artist

The release of 4Eva is a Mighty Long Time has been a thrilling time to follow Big K.R.I.T’s career. The title of the double album oddly can be associated with the time we have formally heard from the Mississippi emcee, but with great reason. Departing Def Jam, K.R.I.T. took the independent route, placing himself at the helm of every piece of what will be coming from his person.

Reemerging with a double album, Big K.R.I.T. took on a tall task. Few artists in hip-hop’s history have taken on the daunting task and released a body of work that would not only hold ears for the duration but receive critical acclaim. Call K.R.I.T. the genres latest unicorn. Not only did he successfully sidestep the perceptions attributed to double albums, he created what many believe to be the work that he always strived for while under the constraints of a label and even stripped himself down to bring Justin Scott, an examination of himself tagged with his government name.

The successful 2017 for K.R.I.T. will stretch into next year with a headlining tour bringing in CyHi the Prynce and Ty Dolla $ign, the latter for select dates. With 2017 coming to a close and a bright future on the immediate horizon, K.R.I.T. hopped on the phone to talk his new album, his new freedom as an artist, his upcoming tour and more.

How has the response been from fans, what are the consensus favorites that come back on the album?

Big K.R.I.T.: Man, definitely “1999,” which was produced by Mannie Fresh, featuring Lloyd definitely shined. “Subenstein,” which is a part of the “My Sub” series, we on the fourth one is tearing speakers up in buildings. The “Intro”, the record with UGK, all of them has healthy responses but those are the ones that stand out a lot.

You came into this one two years removed from Cadillactica, how was your approach as an artist different?

Big K.R.I.T.: The freedom, I felt like I had the same freedom from the mixtapes with this album. I was able to creatively do what I wanted to do or felt like, even with it being a double album. I always had an issue with sequencing a lot of the songs with having really hard, knocking, player type anthems and then having something like “The Vent” or “Angels” and with this album I was able to do two different albums. They sound different, feel different on the instrumentation and the concepts. It worked and it wasn’t like I had to go sit in a boardroom or anything like that to play the records. This is what I wanted to put out and it was a go.
