Mississippi native Big K.R.I.T. sat down with ARTISTdirect.com for our exclusive See the Music series to discuss his song "Praying Man," which features blues legend B.B. King.
K.R.I.T. said the song started with the hook, he was singing the hook and thus created the track with "kind of a darker vibe, but something extremely soulful and passionate."
So how did he get a legend like B.B. King to lay down riffs on the song? "I had one verse when I reached out to get B.B. King on the song," K.R.I.T. said. "It took a few months. He offered to play the guitar. It wasn't on there first. He said, 'Yo, you want me to play guitar?' I was like, 'Sure.' I'm not going to tell B.B. King no." Who would!?
He labeled working with a legend like King "surreal." Perfect term.
K.R.I.T.'s Live from the Underground is out now.
