Coming off the back of 2017's '4eva is a Mighty Long Time', Big Krit had a huge effort before him to surpass the stellar double album while catering to the expectations of his listeners. With 'KRIT Iz Here', KRIT has chosen to push himself very far out of his comfort zone; so much so he relinquished production to a variety of artists - especially Rico Love, who is executive producer with Krit's manager Dutch.
'KRIT Iz Here' starts and ends with 2 tracks that epitomizes Krit's state of mind - KRIT HERE & M.I.S.S.I.S.S.I.P.P.I. The lush production and subject matter show KRIT at his best. More of the familiar Krit shows up on tracks like Make It Easy, Everytime & Blue Flame Ballet - BFB being the only track produced by Big KRIT and Rolynné Anderson.
While Krit is on lyrical form on I Been Waitin, I Made and Believe, the trap-ish production comes off as conformity with the current wave of rap - which is unlike Krit from his previous albums. The songs Family Matters, Outer Space and High Beams find Krit playing with his cadence and rapping over more experimental production - especially on High Beams where he croons and sings all through.
Nonetheless, it is outside his comfort zone that KRIT surprises, and shows that he is able to adapt and transform his craft into more. While not as glorious as his double album, 'KRIT Iz Here' reflects an artist not afraid to try new things, explore new ground and still remain grounded in relevant subject matter, great rapping and entertaining Hip Hop.
