Big K.R.I.T. Declares Himself ‘King of the South’

Many rappers have claimed to be the “King of the South,” most notably T.I., but if Big K.R.I.T. as it his way, fans will honor him with that honorary title for the foreseeable future.

The Mississippi rapper is set to release his heavily anticipated ‘Cadillactica’ on Nov. 11 and has only raised the hype for the album with the quality of tracks he’s let loose so far. His latest song ‘King of the South’ may be the most spellbinding one yet.

K.R.I.T. has established himself as an elite talent both on the mic and behind the boards, but his rhyming is on another level here. The beat he crafted for ‘King of the South’ is simply a playground to flex his mastery with wordplay and a ferocious flow.

On it, he raps, “Light at the end of the tunnel, when you’re flexing it’s hard to be humble / Talking fourth down now I can’t throw the ball to Def Jam ’cause they might fumble / Kick that south flow, betcha can’t get it / Tryna’ f— the world, but my d— won’t fit / My peers like K.R.I.T. the world won’t feel it, you wanna be king, gotta claim that s—.”

If this song is any indication, ‘Cadillactica’ may prove Big K.R.I.T is the rightful heir to the southern hip-hop throne.
