Editorial Reviews

With his first studio album, Live From The Underground, K.R.I.T. stays true to his winning formula. He does so by producing a collection of records that continues to build on the musical history of the South, while simultaneously showcasing his personal beliefs and background in an honest and open way. K.R.I.T. also called upon some of hip-hop and r&b s heavyweights to bless the album including Anthony Hamilton, Big Boi, Melanie Fiona, Bun B, and 8ball & MJG. The wide-range of collaborations add bass, but also the soulful-harmony that give Live From The Underground its dynamic and exciting feel.
I m really taking people in-depth about my relationships and the morals I gained from my Grandmother, he says. I go out and do shows and see the type of impact my songs have so it s important that I say something positive, something relatable. I m going to touch on a lot of different topics, there will be a lot of uplifting music on there and a lot of music that inspires people to do more right than wrong.
Confident with where he is as a man and an artist, Big K.R.I.T. is dedicated to creating songs for fans of the music he grew up loving. I m forever underground, he says. Underground for me is about being more for the people. I m comfortable with where I m at in my life and the music that I make. With this album, I really sat down as a producer and as an artist and constructed the best beats possible and came up with the best content possible. It just happens to be underground.

Picture this: a shooting star comes crashing through the atmosphere of the planet Mainstream, burning through the sky until it crashes into a densely populated area called A&R-ville. A man emerges from the crater, a stranger in a new place, looking like a fish out of water.

This visual is the personification of what Big K.R.I.T. tries to get across on his debut album; The sound of the underground crash landing in the middle of the mainstream. This is a feat that has been tried and failed by countless artists trying to make that near impossible transition from unknown, underground rapper to mainstream hip hop household name. With Live From The Underground [Explicit], I believe that K.R.I.T. has topped off years of hard work and moderate recognition with a successful debut that truly shows the he has the versatility necessary to appeal to multiple audiences. In short, its really good.

I'll be the first to admit that I an not a huge fan of Southern hip hop. Ever since the era of Crunk came into being in the early 2000's, 90% of all rap music coming out of the south has been like hot garbage in the Georgia sun, making almost every newcomer coming from below the Mason Dixon a walking punchline and inevitable one-hit-wonder. But despite the overabundance of suckiness, we get the occasional gems that redeem our southern brethren with their efforts alone. Little Brother, Ludacris, Outkast, Scarface, UGK, T.I., J. Cole... and now Big K.R.I.T. joins the ranks of talented, exceptional artists that rep the south without having to become the walking joke to do it.

First off, this album is refreshingly original, creative, thought-provoking, introspective, and conceptual. People are comparing this piece of work (really a piece of art) to his first 2 classic free albums (mixtapes) 'Krit Wuz Here', and 'Return of 4eva'. Those are special in their own unique ways, presented by K.R.I.T. (King Remembered In Time) at very particular moments in his life and career. However, people need to understand that those were independent releases in which Krit had total creative control. With this album, he had to deal with the pressures of major label behind-the-scenes people telling him what he had to do. Where most rappers are ready to sell out on their debut, Big Krit has stayed true to himself, and also shows artistic growth with this album. You can tell he is very passionate about his music and puts his fans above everything else. It is very hard nowadays to find a major label, mainstream album that has an underground sound. 'Live From The Underground' is one of those exceptions.

This album is very cinematic and has some very good story-telling tracks with great background sounds and effects that make the tracks (and the overall album) larger than life and quite movie-ish. An example would be the instant classic track 'Praying Man' ft B.B. King that sucks you in and takes you on a ride, taking on the different perspectives Krit throws into that track. The start of the album, with the intro followed by the self-titled track, really sets off the album. The intro starts off with a woman's voice telling you to "not be alarmed, you have activated a pre-recording" almost as if this album is being listened to in the future.

Like any other artist, the album is not the same ad his mixtape work but did an excellent job on his sample work. Krit's production skills on this album were nothing less than superior. If your a fan of southern music this album is definately for you

Oh my God, this is everything. I'm old school, so I can FULLY appreciate this album. Live From the Underground is seriously gorgeous. The instrumentation, the beats, the lyrics, the stories, the's all perfectly executed and wrapped into this super soulful, southern package. Super weak sound systems need not apply. KRIT makes music for your time machine, that southern trunk fulla thump kinda music. This won't sound the way it should in a pair of cheap Apple earbuds, so don't play yourself.

This aint your typical southern album. It's truly something special, especially in this era of ringtone rappers and candy shop beats. You can hear all of KRIT's musical influences all throughout this album, yet he manages to keep it unique and signature to his brand. There's way more live instrumentation on this album and less sampling, which I seriously appreciate because it forces you to truly be creative, and KRIT pulled it off beautifully.

As soon as you hear the intro you're bombarded by the high quality sound and know you're in for a treat throughout the remainder of the album. I won't go thru every single song because we'd be here all day, but I love every single one and they're different enough to truly love them all the same. The last song on the album is extremely spiritual, kinda somber, but it still jams and closes the album nicely. KRIT's grandma Linnie is featured on it singing the same hymn KRIT sang in I Gotta Stay (which is dedicated to her) from KRIT Wuz Here.

This album is the perfect introduction for new KRIT fans. It embodies everything about him that us die-hard fans have already grown to love. For you naysayers and 1-dimensional listeners, stop expecting KRIT to drop KRIT Wuz Here or R4 over and over and over.
