Conscious rap is backPosted: March 6, 2012
By Ryan Scerra.
Missisippi rapper, Big Krit, 25, released his ninth mixtape, “Forever N A Day,” on March 5. The highly anticipated mixtape is a follow up to the recent mixtape Return of 4eva.
Krit is known for his thoughtful and conscious rap. Though he has yet to release a debut album, he has three critically acclaimed mixtapes and receives universal praise from critics and his rapper peers. Most of his praise is due to the fact that Krit produces and mixes all of his music. It’s rare in this day and age to find a conscious rapper who has exceedingly good rapping and production skills.
Krit was raised in Meridan, Mississippi, where much of his country felt songs have gained their influence from. He began to create a buzz among the hip hop world after he released Krit Wuz Here.
He began teaming up with rappers Curren$y, Smoke Dza, and Wiz Khalifa as well as Jet Life Entertainment.
Krit was also part of the renowned XXL magazine freshmen cover. The best 10 young rappers are featured every year on the cover of XXL. Krit shared the cover with other acts such as Meek Millz, Yelawolf, Mac Miller, and Kendrick Lamar.
Krit is currently embarking on a college campus tour with fellow rapper J Cole. In an interview with allhiphopnews.com Krit talks about Cole,
“He’s really like the homie man,” Big K.R.I.T. said of J. Cole in an exclusive interview with AllHipHop. “He’s been doing his thing man and he reached out cause the album finna come out, ‘Live from the Underground.’ He was like, ‘Yo come on out here,’ so I was like, ‘S**t hell yea,’ you know. It’s gonna be a lot of places I haven’t been before and its gonna be some fan bases I haven’t reached, so to be up out there before the album drops will be a blessing.”
Krit is known as a humble man and seems to be making an lasting impact on the hip hop industry. His debut album “Live From The Underground” is currently in the works. You can listen to Krit’s new mixtape here. Let’s hope for more Krit to drop before this year ends. Here’s his first and only single off “4eva N A Day”.
