K.R.I.T. challenges T.I.’s crown on this self-produced Cadillactica banger.
Speaking to XXL earlier this month, he said this about claiming the “King” title:
For me I always feel like I embody that with my rap name K.R.I.T. standing for “King Remembered In Time” and just being one of those people [who] always believed in being broad. Just uplifting folk and being from the South, being country and feeling like [I] make it cool to be Southern. At this point, I’m confident in where I’m at to be like, “Yeah, I’m King of the South.” It ain’t me trying to disrespect no OGs or nothing like that at all because I’m not talking about King in the sense of reigning over people. I’m just talking about how I feel as a man, a musician and an artist.
