Mississippi’s Big K.R.I.T. has played an enormous role in both evolving the sound of southern hip-hop and bringing it back to center stage for fans around the world. On his latest single, he enlists one of the south’s most celebrated veterans in Bun B for a smooth, soulful sound. K.R.I.T., who also produced the track, flaunts his southern accent and vernacular on this one shining right aside a living legend. The steadily rising emcee manages to stay true to his roots, while creating music that is palatable to people of all generations and backgrounds.
“Shine On” is the first single off of Big K.R.I.T.’s upcoming album, King Remembered In Time (the acronym that makes up his name), and truly captures what makes him a unique artist. Enjoy and grab a free download below.
