Songfacts®:

  • K.R.I.T. reprises the title track for Live From The Underground's final cut. The blissed-out reworking features his grandma Ms. Linnie singing hymns. He told Complex magazine: "I managed to find tapes of her singing acapella. I had an opportunity to feature her on my actual outro and her ending the whole project as well with what she says at the end. I am not going to say what she said, but it's crazy. I didn't have to get shift her vocals. I didn't have to switch vocal alignments. No Auto-Tune on her vocals. It rang perfectly with the keys that the record has."
