We are getting closer to the release of Grillade and Big K.R.I.T.’s collaborative EP, which finds the two acts recreating tracks off the producer-rapper’s fantastic album, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. Gone are the samples and breaks of the original and in their place is Grillade’s live band aesthetic. That doesn’t just mean actual guitars, bass, and drums, though, as the Bay Area band’s frontwoman, Ragen Fykes, lends her vocals to every track, too. Putting this all on full display is the EP’s first single, “Neva Go Back,” which finds Fykes boosting the chorus with her soulful croon. Her voice adds another layer of emotion to the already passionate track from K.R.I.T., who here looks back to his younger years and time spent with his Grandma Linnie.
You can stream “Neva Go Back” below or purchase it off Bandcamp.
