      I’m not gonna scream AOTY yet, I need to cuddle with this motherfucker for about a month. But I will say KRIT FUCKING DELIVERED. Musically this shit is gonna take some time to digest.

      • MusicHead

        I personally feel this album similar to LFTU & damn near equal..it still not in the same echelon as his first 3 projects.. KRITWuzHere, Return of 4Eva & 4EvaNaDay.

        • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

          You are crazy, this is better than LFTU. The instrumentation, the flow, the production on this is crazy. This is right next to all his mixtapes in terms of quality. Nothing on this album sound like a throwaway. I sat with this album and have been listening to it since it leaked, I am buying me a hard copy of this shit, because it is easily one of the best release of 2014. No bias in me at all, but I feel a lot of cats on here are not musically inclined to critique. The dude is a southern MC who is bringing the heat, and some people are not liking this.

          His flow and singing compliments the beats on every joint perfectly. The instrumentation is more organic on this album similar to LFTU. The heavy bass rattling, combined with the perfect meld of soul music, chimed in with a hint of minimalism on some tracks makes this a perfect AOTY contender. He went hard and hungry on this shit. Dudes are kiddin themselves if they think this was trash or meh LMAO.

  • tk

    how is it dont have time to listen to it right now

    • MidKnightMaRawder

      its amazing

      • tk

        Gibbs pinata good?

        • MidKnightMaRawder

          Well, that’s a very high pedestal there. Pinata is album of the year, no doubt. But i’ll say I would put Cadillactica at 2.

          • tk

            feel i Pinata my aoty rt now i think only the PRhyme project could maybe dethrone it but its only 9 tracks so they all have to be perfect

          • MusicHead

            Piñata album so overrated, not no damn ATOY.

          • tk

            nah shit was prob my aoty and its alot of other peoples as well

        • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

          Just as good as pinata, and I love pinata. This album is like Black Caesar on wax, it is excellent.

    • Miranda Garner

      Was going to ask the same question.

  • REALDEALKILLA

    i can’t listen to it, i don’t wanna spoil it, ima just wait til it comes out, he has already gave us 6 outta the 17 so ima just wait

    • Guest

      Yeah I think Im gonna do the same

    • 32gq

      i feeks u on that the only joints ive heard are lac lac which is sill in rotation when lighting one up and olympus

    • crackpot87

      Bruh, you should listen to it, It is GOOD!. It’ll get you more excited about buying the album when it drops

      • REALDEALKILLA

        Oh I know it’s fire, but I just don’t wanna spoil it lol, I pre-ordered it the first day it was available

  • …..

    Am I missing something or is this really K.R.I.T.’s third album? Could’ve sworn Live From The Underground was just his debut a couple years ago…

    • yeah gotta be a typo. not sure which other release they’re adding to make this his third.

    • My bad.

      • …..

        Haha no worries, shit happens. I literally saw that headline and it had me on Wikipedia looking for an album that doesn’t exist.

  • Replaze

    bruhhh should I listen

    • The Vagrant Militia

      yes. And I say with the enthusiasm, pressure, and heat of twenty million suns pressing against your temple.

      • Replaze

        oh shit…I mean I’m high as fuck right now so there probably wouldn’t ever be a better time for this first listen…

        • Dave J

          High times be the best for first listens man, it wasn’t a coincidence lol go for it, I would if I had a blunt.

  • LupeX

    Lost Generation (Ft. Lupe) is everything I thought it would be and more. Not Lupé’s most lyrical verse, but intensely moving!

  • fraspi
  • AndOneill

    Thoughts on the album!? Gonna wait til it drops

    • Sticky

      I’m very happy right now, that’s all I can say

  • ivemar80

    Please deliver K.R.I.T. I have huge hopes for this.

    • ivemar80

      Your laptop speakers are not worthy the baseline on My Sub, Pt. 3. Jesus.

  • xastey

    I’m going take the sign of the player not loading as I shouldn’t listen to it yet.

  • reachcloud9

    In my opinion, it’s still not quite as good as his mixtapes, but he’s definitely getting used to working without as much samples. This is much better than LFTU, which was good in its own right. The lyrics are on point, and the album flows well. Definitely worth a purchase.

    • mixtape wayne

      Chill bro it just came out.

      • MusicHead

        Nah he speakin facts.

        • mixtape wayne

          Did u really have to reply to every comment I left on here

    • MusicHead

      Facts.

  • Parker

    album finishes really strong after the interlude

  • DeadCoffee

    November is gonna be a good month..

    • MidKnightMaRawder

      replace super smash bros with assasins’s creed and dragon age and yes!! lol

      • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

        Dragon Age!? LMAO! Nah SSB’s all day he needs he got the list right LOL!

        • MidKnightMaRawder

          Lol What’s wrong with dragon Age? I prefer games with well written stories and well developed characters. Games that will last me at least 50 hours to beat.

  • MidKnightMaRawder

    Holy shit! I doubted listen to it but fuck it. I did and im glad I did. Cant wait for next week so I can put this in my car and drive to it. Shit is just as amazing as I expected. Specially after the Interlude. Like damn, the album gets 10x better after track 09. I wish they could release producer credits though. I’m interested in who did what.

  • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

    This album is fantastic, this is on par with his mixtapes. People doubting him, get off the TDE bandwagon because this is a masterpiece. It has that old southern style of rap with a new modern twist. This is much much better than LFTU. Production, lyrics and even the cover art is on point. This was a solid project everything from here is lookin up for Krit.

    • Prince Akeem

      score /10 IYO?

      • disqus_xpmwx1oUV3

        Still sitting with it but as of now it is damn close for me.

      • mixtape wayne

        It’s krits grand opus. His masterpiece

        • MusicHead

          HELLLLLLLL NAH. U really off salts man.

      • MusicHead

        It’s not his damn opus.

    • kermitthefrog

      ^ that, especially the TDE bandwagon part.

  • Aaron Dank

    I’m just psyched NPR is covering Krit’s releases – excited to listen :)

  • Mainframe

    masterpiece

  • DIesel

    Good to see the stans love it, I’ll have to check it out later

  • The title track “Cadillactica” is gonna sound to sick in the whip later. Jeez!

  • Sirilly

    This is so dope K.R.I.T. definitely delivered. AOTY contender for sure. Pre-ordered.

  • realtalk82

    This album is sick!! Nothing less than dope, KRIT pretty much knows how to make good music whenever he wants.

  • realtalk82

    Kreation,Soul Food ,Life and My Sub 3 on repeat

  • SonSon

    I pressed play and it didn’t work. Lawd gave me a sign *dmx voice*

    I know it has leaked too, folks passin around links n shit, but no, I promised to buy the album. I promise KRIT you will go Gold this time around, I’ma try my best to help…

  • SonSon

    and ya’ll comments don’t help…temptation got me wanting to hear it so bad smh

    • reachcloud9

      Bruh, just pre-order the album and listen to the leak, that’s what I did.

  • Trevor Hurst

    Wiz Khalifa did his thing on that track… and by ‘his thing’ I mean used shitty generic raps to hinder the song. Album is straight fire tho!!!!

  • anton
  • PV

    On first listen, the entire album sounds dope af (as expected). I’m really feeling that “Mo Better Cool” track. Only let down is Mt. Olympus reprise. I’m guessing they couldn’t clear the original sample and had to recreate it, but it just doesn’t have the same energy and fire. Coppin’ the standard edition because of that

  • Miranda Garner

    At work. I need an unbiased opinion on the stream. With an astute analysis. So, seriously, how is it?

    • MusicHead

      Go look at my comment.

  • Kevin Reynolds

    “Are you really feeling that bad? My grandma was excited to see you today for her Anniversary Dinner party.”
    *Me*
    “Yeah, bae, I’m sorry. But I’m really going through it. I think I caught that thing going around at work.”

    “Ok, well hope you feel better.”
    “Yeah, I’m just gone lie down a while. I’ll call you if it gets worse.”

    *Turns on speakers, starts playing the Album stream*

  • MusicHead

    To be honest, it’s only a tad bit better than Live From the Underground, and Def Jam needs to open his budget up, so he can use samples & have the projects that made KRITWuzHere, Return of 4Eva & 4EvaNaDay so flawless.

    • Reezy

      Thats an honest statement… I’ll support Big KRIT 4 EVA, but if I’m being honest about this album i’d definitely say that i;m disappointed. Still gon cop the album tho.. The lack of cleared samples hurts his sound.

      • MusicHead

        Exactly the same.

  • MusicHead

    I will say this album for the bass heavy trunk shaking whips tho haha.

  • biff tannen

    What a great album. I had high hopes and it totally delivered. Dope dope dope!

  • Reezy

    ,

    • Reezy

      ..

  • i cannot wait to be serenaded & seduced by this 100 percent, grade a realness that krit created. i’m late, but i’m copping this rah now.
