PREMIERE: Big K.R.I.T. “Sticks & Stones” (From Rhythm Roulette)

The people have spoken and we have heard them. After we presented the last Rhythm Roulette with Big K.R.I.T. we’ve seen many of you on social media asking for the full version of the song he crafted in his studio. Ask no more.

The mentality he enters on “Sticks & Stones” takes it back to earlier in his career–a younger and hungry K.R.I.T. Not to say that he’s any less ambitious today, but the hook conveys a sense of urgency to create something that others can feel in their gut with the crude resources available at the time. His verse explains that he’s always striving to improve himself and that his southern drawl might not be your cup of tea for a flow, but it does express something that he couldn’t do otherwise. And although the occasional piano trill may sound off key, it feels like a beautiful mistake that brings the soulful production together with the lyrics about K.R.I.T.’s one shot at his nascent career. It’s unapologetically Big K.R.I.T.
