Coming off the Top 10 release of his 2017 double album, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, Big K.R.I.T. releases today, Thrice X, a 3-song EP featuring the sixth installment of “King” alternatively named “Higher.”
“Thrice is more like a new beginning,” states Big K.R.I.T. “A way for me to reach out musically to my supporters and say thank you. The EP in itself is all about growth sonically and letting go of my comfort zone.”
Thank you, indeed! 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time was named one of the “Top 50 Best Albums of 2017: Critics Picks” by Billboard (click to read) and achieved a career high of over 150,000,000M streams. Amply titled, “Glorious,” Big K.R.I.T.’s bass and drum heavy focus track on Thrice X, shares the result of that success.
On “Glorious,” K.R.I.T. confidently rhymes about how his life has changed since the new partnership between BMG and his label Multi-Alumni. On the track he says that he’s “makin’ a move or two just to see what these moves will do” while his “phone [is] steady ringin’ off the hip” he feels glorious.

Billboard concurs by stating, “For most rappers, leaving their record label is a sign of hard times ahead. But for Big. K.R.I.T., it was the best thing to ever happen for him.”
Thrice X‘s other two tracks are equally impactful. On Part 6 of the “King” (Higher) series, K.R.I.T. is sure to please as he gives his diehards what they have come to expect – exceptional production and stellar story-telling, while the opening strings on “Look What I Got,” prepare your ears for sonic greatness.
Called “introspective” and “soulful” by Rolling Stone, the Mississippi-born rapper has released three Top 5 albums back-to-back starting with his debut Live From The Underground, in 2012. The first two albums were #1 chart-topping releases.
