Description

Big K.R.I.T performs with a DJ set from the Bay Area's own D-Sharp.

It is rare to find an artist who has both age and wisdom on his side. At just 24 years-old, Big K.R.I.T. possesses the musical intuition of an old soul. Hailing from Meridian, Mississippi, K.R.I.T. (born Justin Scott) grew up listening to early rhythm and blues records in his Grandmotherís house and later went on to discover songs by revered soul artists like Curtis Mayfield, Willie Hutch and Bobby Womack. Itís easy to detect these artists and rap legends who have influenced the young MC like 8Ball & MJG, UGK, Scarface and OutKast in K.R.I.T.ís own music which masterfully resurrects the rich heritage of Southern hip-hop in the 1990ís.

ďIím reintroducing a type of sound from the South that a lot of the newer generation doesnít know about and reminding the older generation of what Southern hip-hop used to sound like,Ē explains K.R.I.T., whose stage name is an acronym for King Remembered In Time. ďI was influenced by the third coast as far as Texas, Tennessee, and Atlanta so I was really trying to put all those sounds that I grew up listening to together to make a sound for myself.Ē
