5.0 out of 5 stars The Dignity Of Southern Hip Hop June 6, 2012
By Q. Pair
Format:Audio CD
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Some songs much higher, some songs lower November 27, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
There are songs on this album which deserve five stars, and at least one I truly don't like. I think Big K.R.I.T. is at his best when he creates thoughtful, soulful tracks, and just another guy when he creates "pimps and hoes" songs. He has both here. His track with B.B. King is noteably excellent while his track with Ludacris is inferior work from both of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid album, great album for a Southern head September 18, 2012
By Dutch
Format:Audio CD
This is a nice little album that starts out typical but gradually ends on a more serious note. The end is significantly stronger and rather makes up for the shortcomings of the rest of the album. The production is solely handled by Big K.R.I.T. himself, delivering a variety of Southern sounding beats, mainly with a chill and casual feel. The beats transition nicely and complements his flow very well, creating a strong atmosphere. Big K.R.I.T. performs nicely with a smooth flow, laid back delivery, and a strong sense of direction and depth. Solid album, great album for a Southern head.
