I Got This

Album: Live From The Underground (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from Big K.R.I.T.'s debut studio album, Live From The Underground. The song was officially released on the rapper's website free of charge on March 20, 2012.
  • K.R.I.T. explained the song's meaning to Complex magazine: "It's a common term in everyday life," he said. "Somebody tries to come up into your realm like, 'Yo, maybe you should do this like this.' You're like, 'I am good, homie. I got this. Hold up. This what I do.' So, it's one of those records, man. If you believe in yourself wholeheartedly, then that's how you should feel. And it goes back to even my rap name like K.R.I.T. It means King Remembered In Time. I want to be a king in what I do and I feel like a king as a man. So you can't really tell me no different. Even if you don't like the record, I appreciate you listening to it. But I made it based off how I felt."
