Big K.R.I.T.: Cadillactica
Buy! - (Def Jam)
The latest release from the Mississippi-raised, Atlanta-based rapper/producer is a concept album revolving around a fictional planet. Reminiscent at times of Outkast, it’s also his most expansive and authoritative set yet of Southern hip hop steeped in soul, funk, blues and jazz, featuring a warm, plush sound with lush synths, bluesy guitar licks and trunk-rattling beats accompanying his commanding delivery and lyrics blending the philosophical and the down-home. 11/14/2014 - Don Yates
