We had a chance to catch one of our favorite musicians in San Francisco about a month back, and happily had our camera in tow. Big K.R.I.T. is the Mississippi bred rapper who has been making a lot of noise lately with his latest release, “Live from the Underground”.
Prior to his latest release, Krit has been heavy in the mixtape game and enjoyed success with popular songs featuring everyone from Wiz Khalifa to Ludacris. The SF date was part of the first leg of Krit’s national tour, and definitely showed off why the young rapper is catching so much critical acclaim. The musician who is well known to be both a great rapper and producer further showed and entered “trifecta” brilliance with his live show. Krit entertained the masses with a great DJ in Clark Kent, as well as interacted in waves with the crowd, even allowing some in the front row to sing hooks to some of his hits….and get this, no boggled backing vocals on the record , as some rappers seemingly love to use in this day and age. All in all, Krit’s street styled rhymes sonned from Dirty South pioneers such as UGK, and other southern favorites blend tremendously with songs of the underground hip hop life favored by so many hip hop purists to create and form the next big rap superstar…and we are just fine with that.
Shouts out to OG of Luxury Mindz fam who is currently on tour filming a documentary on KRIT, we will be posting the three part documentary in an upcoming blog.
