K.R.I.T. goes on to talk about his semi-autobiographical track "Price Of Fame," describing the backstory surrounding the track:
"It's a reflection how far I got in my career at one point. You going out, you partying all that stuff, and you get back home and there's nobody to really share your successes with for real. So you find yourself indulging in your vices, and normally surrounding yourself around people who only there for the moment...I started chasing all these accolades and seeing what my peers had, becoming super competitive, and I wasn't living life either. I kind of dialed it back and started paying attention to my surroundings and what I was doing to myself not only on a health level, but on a mental level."
He proceeds to reveal that he's been slowing down on the drinking, and, ever the romantic, thanks his girl for her role in his newfound perspective.
