Live From the Underground

Big K.R.I.T.
DEF JAM
After three mixtapes better than most emcees’ entire catalogs, K.R.I.T. ventures into the retail market. K.R.I.T. is his own producer and had to re-evaluate his common practice of using well-known samples. Fear not, as Underground is a picture-perfect example of transitioning from the “anything goes” mixtape world to the confines of the major label world of features and sample-free production. K.R.I.T. is an acolyte of the ’90s Southern rap scene, a pre-No Limit and Cash Money world when the idea of “balance” ran hip-hop. It is possible to try to change the world Monday through Friday and then want to see somebody’s daughter shake it on the weekend. K.R.I.T. rides that line like a pro, with thoughtful pieces like “Porchlight,” “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and “Praying Man,” and waxes carnal on “Money on the Floor.” Essential.
