Music: Big K.R.I.T. – Look What I Got
Big K.R.I.T. dropped a trio of surprise EPs last year and has since gathered their tracks under one title. The compilation recontextualizes his storytelling for a novel listening experience. “Look What I Got,” which was featured on the very first installment of his trilogy, sits at the end of TDT’s tracklist. Its message now serves as the denouement of the narrative put forth by “Pick Yourself Up.”
The song’s chorus is a celebration of hard work and focus, which pierces through the current emphasis on instant gratification. It zooms in on the “time it takes to get to the top,” a theme explored further with a green thumb analogy: “Dig a hole, buried deep in the ground/Water it once in a while, watch it grow into cash/All you got is L’s off in your stash.”
