Big K.R.I.T. ft. Grillade – Neva Go Back

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

YoursTru.ly released the above K.R.I.T. Wuz Here: The Grillade Sessions EP trailer last week, and dropped one of the tracks from the 4 song project today. A little backstory about the song itself:

Big K.R.I.T. wouldn’t be the man he is today without Grandma Linnie. The same woman he recalls cooking something good for his soul in “Neva Go Back” is responsible for one of K.R.I.T.’s critical characteristics: his gumption. It’s this strength, and respect for tradition that separates K.R.I.T. from his peers, and gives his songs that lasting luster.

This version of “Neva Go Back” belongs to K.R.I.T., Miss Linnie and the members of Grillade, who fill it to the brim with their own memories and melodies. Notice the weightless harmony in the hook. That marriage of instruments sounds like it should be celebrating its 20th anniversary, but in reality, KRIT and Grillade vocalist Ragen Fykes met for the first time that day at Different Fur. Proof that time isn’t the only force tying us together. In this case, its a shared passion, mutual admiration, and good old-fashioned gumption.
