Big K.R.I.T. Announces New Album '4Eva Is a Mighty Long Time,' Shares 'Keep the Devil Off' Video
The long-awaited effort boasts no features but will include the previously released single "Confetti" and his newest track, "Keep The Devil Off."
Big K.R.I.T. is ready to make his official return to music. After recently unleashing "Confetti," his first single in over a year, on Friday (Oct. 6) he returned to announce his upcoming double-disc album, 4Eva Is A Mighty Long Time, sharing the track list and artwork. The long-awaited effort is due out Oct. 27.
K.R.I.T will deliver a staggering 22-track album, his first full-length project since his departure from Def Jam in 2016. The "Confetti" rapper also released the artwork for each disc, which represents the two sides of the Mississippi rapper. On the first cover art, K.R.I.T. is dressed to the nines, showing off his gold mouthpiece and is placed against a dark background, possibly alluding to the lavish lifestyle afforded to rappers. Contrary to the first photo, the second image finds K.R.I.T against a bright pink background with his eyes closed and hands raised.
K.R.I.T.'s upcoming album boasts no features but will include the previously released single "Confetti" and his newest track "Keep The Devil Off," which he released to coincide with his big announcement.
In the grainy, black and white visual for "Keep The Devil Off," K.R.I.T is in a dimly lit room and dances underneath a white spotlight in the middle of the room. Backed by a church choir and a soulful melody, he raps, "I was born underneath the pecan tree/ With the soul of a giant and the heart of a lion/ But now world couldn't wait for an O.G/ I was creepin', crawlin', fallin' out the shack."
