Big K.R.I.T. featuring Rico Love
Rico Love: I wanted to give K.R.I.T. something different than what people heard from him. I try to do that for so many different artists. I’ve done records for people—like Meek—that I really thought if they do it, it would take them to a different space. I feel like not many street artists are willing to be vulnerable on records and speak about things that aren’t as tough. But we all have those sides of us; we can’t hide those things.

HipHopWired.com: Big K.R.I.T. Talks The Importance Of Speaking On Social Issues

Whether they admit it or not, rappers have a responsibility to bring social awareness to vital issues that make national news. Although there have been several Hip-Hop personalities who have tweeted about the Mike Brown shooting, there hasn’t been much on the musical front. As one of the leading examples of how a traditional rap lyricist is generally portrayed, Big K.R.I.T. isn’t shying away from the great power–or responsibility that has been bestowed upon him. Even in a testy situation like the Ferguson coverage. During the 2014 BMI R&B & Hip-Hop Awards, the Mississippi scribe broke down his opinion on his perceived obligation to talk about such news bits. “Nowadays people look to music for insight and they look to their favorite artists to let them know what’s going on in the world,” he explains. “So yes I feel like I have to uphold [that]…as well as praying for people and spreading my positive energy,” he continued. Said thought process just builds excitement for K.R.I.T.’s sophomore album Cadillactica, which bulldozed its way into conversation thanks to the powerful single “Mt. Olympus.” K.R.I.T. explains that the angst heard on the records was simply aggression left over from Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse and definitely sets the tone from what you can expect as Def Jam edges closer to a release date. Heavy is the head that wears the crown but it sounds like K.R.I.T. still plans to be remembered in a glorious light. Take a look at his latest interview above.

Big K.R.I.T. Announces 31-Day North American Tour

PA_POSTER_LAYERED_PRINTTICKETS FOR BIG K.R.I.T.’S NORTH AMERICAN TOUR GO ON SALE TOMORROW!!

AUGUST 14, 2014, NEW YORK – This year Big K.R.I.T has been paving the way for the release of his highly anticipated sophomore studio album, Cadillactica. K.R.I.T. is continuing to reeve up excitement for the release, and showcase his unique style of production and rhyming abilities, with the announcement that tickets for his new North American Pay Attention Tour will go on sale tomorrow, August 15, 2014. Tickets will be available for purchase through Ticketmaster.

The 31-day tour will start off in Charlotte, NC on October 2nd and end in Atlanta, GA on November 15th, 2014. Fans across the United States, as well as in Canada, will get the chance to witness some of K.R.I.T.’s newest material and past classics. They will also get the opportunity to catch performances by Atlanta artists’ Two 9 as they open for K.R.I.T.

“I am excited to get on the road,” said K.R.I.T. “This tour will give fans a little taste of what is to come. I am traveling with a message, a message about our culture-where we were and what we have come to. I want to make sure people are paying attention to what is happening in their lives and in hip-hop today.”

This announcement comes just after the release of his first official single, “Pay Attention,” off Cadillactica. The single debuted last month to rave reviews. With Rico Love providing a feature and production by Jim Jonsin, the new track was a perfect way to showcase K.R.I.T.’s versatility and provide contrast to previous works. This is only the beginning, however. With this new album K.R.I.T. is out for blood. He plans to solidify his status as a reigning king of southern rap while he takes music listeners on a journey through sound and lyricism they will not soon forget.

The next king is ready to take up his crown. Make sure you are there to witness it. Check out the list below for concert dates and cities.

XXLMag.com: Big K.R.I.T. Names His Favorite Song From An Artist Of His Generation

Big K.R.I.T.:
“Liberation” by OutKast. Man, even Big Boi was harmonizing on that thang. You have so many amazing artists, man—Andre, Big Boi, Cee Lo, Erykah Badu and Big Rude on the poem. It’s one of those records that reminds you that it’s going to be okay. And it just always affected me the same. No matter from the first time I heard it to even when I hear it now, it always has the same effect on me. It’s a very powerful song and timeless music at that.
