Big K.R.I.T.'s Still Eyeing A Spike Lee Collaboration As He Readies 'Soulful' Cadillactica


Big K.R.I.T's second studio album is around the corner, with a November 11 drop date, and the Def Jam rapper is excited to show fans something new this time. He gave us a lil' taste of what he's working with the new mixtape See Me On Top Vol. 4, but there's plenty more where that came from.

K.R.I.T. fans know that the Mississippi artist prides himself on both producing and rapping, so they'll be happy to know that he expanded his range on Cadillactica.

"I only used three samples on the entire album, which is amazing for me, because people know me to sample a lot," he told MTV News on the Bet Hip Hop Awards carpet. "For me, it was trying to make the kind of music that sounds like a sample, feels like a sample, had the same amount of grit and soul as a sample -- [although] it wasn't."

And even though he's moving forward right now, there's still one passion project that he's determined to complete: That "Praying Man" video -- directed by Spike Lee.

"It's not over!" K.R.I.T. said laughing. "That's still something we're trying to put together. The timing wasn't right but that song hasn't gone away, the idea hasn't gone anyway and I think it'll be even bigger, the fact that it's not attached to an album when we do it."
