In preparation for his second studio album Cadillactica, out this fall, country rap tunes resurrector Big K.R.I.T. has been releasing potential album tracks as part of an ambitious free music giveaway he’s calling “Week of KRIT.” Today we have “Wolf On Wall Street,” a breezy boastful banger produced by K.R.I.T. and Childish Major, the ambient-trap maestro best known for Rocko’s haunting “U.O.E.N.O.,” and a number of tracks on Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune’s Beautiful Pimp mixtape series.
The “Wolf On Wall Street” beat is a knotty collaboration, with K.R.I.T.’s unmistakeable Southern hip-hop pulse and some crying blues guitars propelling the production forward, while atmospheric electronica and the eerie sampling associated with Childish Major moves in the background. The track proudly bridges the gap between Dirty South traditionalism and “New ATL” futurism. Stream “Wolf On Wall Street” below and look to Big K.R.I.T.’s Twitter feed for more songs popping up as part of “Week of KRIT.”
