Круиз К. К.
"K.K. Cruisin'" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. The aircheck, noted for its slow tempo, whistling synth, and hip-hop beat, appears to be based on G-funk, a subgenre of hip-hop that emerged during the early 1990s and remained popular throughout the decade. The live performance version appears to be based more upon acid jazz, a precursor to G-funk from the 1980s. It may take inspiration from "Virtual Insanity" by the English funk band Jamiroquai, which has a similar chord progression.
The album cover for "K.K. Cruisin'" features K.K. Slider wearing a suit, shield sunglasses, and gold chains. He sits on a leather couch with his legs crossed. In New Horizons, K.K.'s pose was changed, and he now wears aviator sunglasses. The cover appears to take inspiration from English R&B artist Mark Morrison's 1996 album Return of the Mack. The text at bottom-left position is illegible in New Leaf, while in New Horizons, it reads "K.K. Cruisin'" atop a red wax seal.
