Big K.R.I.T. spills some more beans on his upcoming album "Cadillactica," revealing that Jim Jonsin, DJ Dahi and Terrace Martin all helped produce songs on the album.
Big K.R.I.T. recently rocked the crowd at Seattle radio station KUBE 93's Summer Jam, but before doing so, he sat down with the station's DJ Hyphen to chop it up about his upcoming album,Â Cadillactica. Somewhat surprisingly, K.R.I.T. (who has always produced his own music) announced that he had recruitedÂ Jim Jonsin, DJ Dahi and Terrace Martin to help out with production on the album.Â
Though he mentioned that he would be working with some producers back in April, this was the first time he revealed the specifics, and did so when asked by Hyphen how he enjoyed working with other beatsmiths.
âIt was difficult at first, just because Iâm so used to being in control," Krizzle said, "but working with other producers, I learned a lot tooâ¦ So even the music I produce for myself is becoming bigger and is sounding stronger, and being able to work with a Jim Jonsin, DJ Dahi, Terrace Martin is beautiful.â
K.R.I.T. later said that 65% of the new album would still be self-produced. He also spoke on the concept ofÂ Cadillactica, which he described as picking "up where âLive From The Undergroundâ left off, and telling the story of where the Cadillac came from. It crash-lands on Planet Earth, which to me was mainstream music. Being so underground with my music and rebellious, I wanted to do it my own way, and just tell the story in reverse.â
Though he wouldn't give a definite answer on the release date, K.R.I.T. said whenÂ CadillacticaÂ drops,Â âItâs gonna be still hot enough outside to ride with your windows down and your top dropped, trust me.â
