“I’ve been telling a very intricate story throughout my career. K.R.I.T Iz Here is its own thing, its own body of work, its own music,” K.R.I.T. said. “It’s the happiness that I’m in now. [It’s] the freedom that I have now, the independence that I have now and celebrating that. And growing as an artist and a human being. I wanted to showcase that.”

He concluded by saying he’s learned positive energy has contributed to his longevity.

“You start to realize people are creating memories with you, and you’re creating memories with them,” he said. “You’re able to talk about these things and engage. And the hug means so much. The positive energy you need, it gives you that motivation to continue to write and to continue to make music. And I just feel blessed, brother, that throughout these years people not only seen me rap or make music, but I’m still connecting. It’s crazy.”
