Big K.R.I.T. (née Justin Scott) is making 2018 his year. After releasing his album 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time back in October and announcing his upcoming spring tour, now we’re getting a fourth single, along with a video and it’s a double dose of southern royalty.
K.R.I.T. is joined by rapper T.I. for the track “Big Bank,” and the two meet up in an abandoned parking lot to exchange bars in the Motion Family-directed video. Decked out in all black, with hints of gold (including his grill), K.R.I.T. reminds us why he’s considered a King of the South. The scenes switch from the parking lot pimping to hanging out on the roof of a skyscraper as he proclaims that he’s going to keep getting his shine on.
The gritty video matches the lyrics, where both Young Krizzle and T.I. go toe-to-toe about their star power and work ethic. “I got big bank flexing on a mothaf***a / Ain’t s**t changed cause I’m still getting, still mine / Ain’t no love for a hater tryna fly me, tryna play me / Mothaf***as never stop my, stop shine,” Big K.R.I.T. flows furiously on the hook. “And all I care about is how to get it, no doubt / Big numbers in front of my decimal, check it / Make sure it’s multiplying / Is all I’m ever I worried about,” T.I. raps. Keep watching the quick cuts to catch rapper CyHi the Prynce making a brief cameo, too.
Speaking of CyHi, the rapper will join Big K.R.I.T. and Ty Dolla $ign on the Heavy Is the Crown Tour, which kicks off on March 15th in Little Rock and heads down South before it loops around to the West Coast until the end of April.
