Rapper and producer Big K.R.I.T. dishes about his baseball playing days, and more.
It’s certainly not uncommon for celebs on the Chop-Up to boast about their athletic prowess back in the day; it is, however, rare that those celebs can back up said dominance with actual facts.
Big K.R.I.T. turned out to be one of the first.
“I actually threw a no-hitter to win the state championship,” said the rapper/producer. “Oh yeah; I was pretty nice now!”
I caught up with Big K.R.I.T. to chop-it-up about everything from his baseball playing days to preparing for his new album Cadillactica to how he dominates at Call of Duty.
Jason Jordan: I know you went to Meridian High (Meridian, Miss.); did you play sports there?
Big K.R.I.T.: Oh yeah I played baseball.
JJ: Were you nice or were you ‘eh?’
BK: (Laughs) Oh yeah I was pretty nice now! Music took over my life later, but before that it was all about baseball. Going pro was something that I was aspiring to do… Now to say if I would’ve been able to go pro, that’s another question. I’d like to think I could’ve made it.
JJ: What position?
BK: Outfield, catcher and I pitched a little bit too.
JJ: Let’s say you were the No. 1 high school baseball player in the country your senior year, where would you have signed on to play in college?
BK: I would’ve gone with the Tar Heels. I always wanted to play at North Carolina.
JJ: Give me your shining moment on the diamond?
BK: I once pitched a no-hitter to win the state championship one year. It was in Biloxi, Mississippi. I remember it like that!
JJ: That’ll get it done; still got it?
BK: (Laughs) Ooh, I haven’t thrown a baseball in years; I might hurt somebody out there.
