Do You Love Me For Real

Album: Cadillactica (2014)
  • Big K.R.I.T.'s real-life girlfriend Mara Hruby croons the hook on this sing-songy love story. The Mississippi MC told The Boombox: "I originally had the song written before I even decided to have her featured on it. It was one of those things where listening to it, I knew it would be better fit for a female's voice. Why not feature Mara Hruby because I love her voice and I love the soulfulness in her voice. At the same time, it's still aesthetically a little different from what people are used to hearing from me."

    "It was easy because, you know, that is my girl so it wasn't as stressful trying to reach out and sending it back and forth with another artist," he continued. "She was in the studio with me and we knocked it out. We went over it together to make it sonically vibe. It was dope to be able to feature her on the album."
