K.R.I.T. Iz Here serves as the sequel to the southern rap superstar's 2010 mixtape Big K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. The album has notable features including, but not limited to, a long awaited and much anticipated collaboration with J.Cole as well as Baby Rose, Yella Beezy, Lil Wayne, and more. In addition, it features production from heavy hitters such as Danja Handz, Camper, Wallis Lane, Don Corleon and Rico Love. "For me, it was about also showcasing that I can go different places. It either be singing, live instrumentation, and how I sometimes want to use my vocals as more of an instrument, than just being on the record," Big K.R.I.T. about the project. "Also, tackling certain issues, or how I feel about certain social topics and things like that in my music, but not in a way that people are accustomed to me hearing. We got a few other features that I'm super excited about, but knowing that K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, the 10 year anniversary was going to be next year. It was important I let people know that K.R.I.T. is here now."
