Wiz Khalifa, Girl Talk & Big K.R.I.T. Team up For New Single “How the Story Goes”
Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T., and Girl Talk come together on the upbeat single "How the Story Goes."
The track is from the three artists' upcoming collaboration album, Full Court Press, with Smoke DZA. (Several songs do not feature DZA, including "How the Story Goes.") Wiz combines some early West Coast aesthetics with Girl Talk's production and K.R.I.T's witty bars.
Girl Talk explained how the song came together by revealing Wiz acted as the anchor around which K.R.I.T. built his contribution after the "Taylor Gang" rapper found a nice pocket.
“Wiz recorded his verse first,” Girl Talk said. “I thought the beat was a slightly different vibe than normal for him, but once he got in the booth, it felt like a natural fit. K.R.I.T. came in and built the rest of the song around that verse. He was able to capture the feel of the sample and take it somewhere new. This turned into one of the songs that I ended up going back to the most.”
The trio are all embarking on separate tours beginning at the end of the month. Girl Talk starts his North American tour on March 31, Wiz tours from mid-April through May, and K.R.I.T. begins his tour on April 21 and concludes on June 10.
Full Court Press comes out April 8. Watch the “How the Story Goes” video or stream it below.
