Thursday Sept. 13, a thundering crowd of hipsters, college students and hip hop enthusiasts welcomed Justin Scott, better known as Big K.R.I.T., back to the Carolinas for his “Live from the Underground” tour at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro.
Big K.R.I.T., who just released his first album “Live from the Underground” under the Def Jam label with songs mostly written and produced by himself, wowed audiences with a heart-pumping performance that took fans from his humble beginnings in Mississippi to the center of hip hop in 2012.
K.R.I.T. controlled the stage with electrifying performances and soulful sentiments from songs off his first mix-tape “KRIT Wuz Here.” He also performed new material from “Live from the Underground.”
“I’m still country,” K.R.I.T. Proclaimed throughout the show. He let fans know that a label deal hasn’t changed him at all, and he closed the show by jumping into the crowd while performing.
K.R.I.T. stayed after the show and shook hands with every fan he could. A young star, true performers and a real hip hop artist.
“Live from the Underground” is in stores now and you can check out the new single “What U Mean" featuring Ludacris on iTunes.
