On Oct. 1, two mavens, one in the realm of music journalism and the other in the rap game, came together for yet another edition of CRWN, a music interview series. Elliott Wilson and Big K.R.I.T. (King Remembered In Time) sat down at New World Stages in New York City for an in depth discussion about K.R.I.T’s artistry and his upcoming album Cadillactica.

New World Stages is a venue with a number of theaters. Their elevator, although functional, might prove to be small for some with wider wheelchair frames. Access to the theater was pretty straight forward, however if seated in the handicapped area the patron may become hot because of heat from equipment above. Granted the feeling did go away after a while, but the venue should consider better placement of that equipment next time around. Despite that, the area does allow for a great viewing of the stage but that surely hold true for every other seat in the house.

Which is a great thing because the interview that took place over the next hour was a sight worth seeing, regardless if you’re a hip-hop fan or not. The interview began with a humorous shot at K.R.I.T’s attire and almost immediately delved into Cadilactica. At the basis K.R.IT describes his upcoming studio effort as his conscious mind that manifests as a planet named Cadillactica.


“I take you through the life, from the beginning of life, being young and rambunctious in life, getting to that point in life when you start remembering what being young was like and wanting that back. Then getting to that point where you’re like I’m not young anymore, I need to accept that and start tyrna find what’s my purpose now, ” is how K.R.I.T. explains what the tracks on Cadillactica represent.

He then goes on to explain how some of the songs may seem obscure to long time listeners. The rest of the interview itself focused on how K.R.I.T. developed as a rapper and a man, his use of samples, his reputation in the game, working with legendary musicians like B.B. King, and a bunch more that made for a humbling and reflective experience for those in the audience. Ultimately, Big K.R.I.T. will be remembered in time—his music is timeless.
