BIG K.R.I.T. ANNOUNCES “KRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TOUR”

KRITICALLY_ACCLAIMED_TOUR_INSTA

39-CITY HEADLINE TOUR KICKS OFF OCTOBER 22;

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

 

(August 24, 2015 – New York, NY) Def Jam Recordings artist BIG K.R.I.T. is pleased to announce his massive headline “KRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TOUR” for this fall.   

 

The 39-city tour will kick off on October 22 in Norfolk, VA, continuing to major markets including New York City, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles, ending on December 18 in Atlanta. Tickets are currently available at www.BigKrit.com with additional information on VIP packages coming this Friday, August 28.

 

On the “Kritically Acclaimed Tour” Big K.R.I.T. will perform music off his lauded second studio album Cadillactica, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hip Hop/R&B Chart in 2014. The album proved to be a breakout moment for the seasoned Mississippi bred MC with critics such as Pitchfork proclaiming “Cadillactica is the triumph of a style that has all but been discarded” and Billboard stamping the album as Big K.R.I.T.’s  “best work” to date.

 

Born and raised in Meridian, Mississippi, Big K.R.I.T. has gracefully shouldered the mantle of Southern rap’s next great star since breaking out with his 2010 mixtape K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. He was featured on the cover of XXL’s annual Freshmen issue in 2011 and hasn’t looked back—the mixtapes Return of 4Eva (2011), 4Eva and a Day (2012), and King Remembered in Time (2013), along with his debut album Live From the Underground (2012), have continued to raise the bar.

Mitchelle’l “Spillin Drank (Remix) Featuring T.I. & Big K.R.I.T. [Prod. By: Lil C]

Big K.R.I.T. and T.I. are proven masters of car songs. Both Southern MCs love old schools, boomin’ systems, hydraulics, and “bowling ball swirl.” Grand Hustle/Hustle Gang singer Mitchelle’l already made a song rooted in that Texas Slab Music sound. “Spillin’ Drank” is a gliding record that sounds like what would happen if Bobby Womack pushed a candy-painted Fleetwood Brougham convertible, chuckin’ the deuce.

Mitchelle’l creates the moment, with Krizzle and Tip’ riding along, with some stellar feature verses for the “Spillin’ Drank Remix.” Whatever the drink is, put a lid on it, and ride out to this melodic remix that sounds great in the ride.

Hermitude “The Buzz” Featuring Big K.R.I.T., Mataya & Young Tapz

Earlier this year, hip-hop/electronic producers Hermitude released their fifth LP Dark Night Sweet Light in the duo’s home country of Australia via Elefant Traks. The album included the Mataya and Young Tapz-featuring jam “The Buzz,” a throbbing head-nodder with hiccuping synths and booming bass. For the track’s remix, out on the upcoming international issue of the album, the Australian Music Prize winners get a big boost from a high-profile guest in legendary underground rapper Big K.R.I.T.

“Working with K.R.I.T was dope,” Hermitude say. “He was such a humble, professional and all-around nice dude. Sometimes working with different artists in a studio for the first time can be like a blind date, you never know how you’ll get on. But the feel was relaxed when we first stepped in the room, and shit really started vibing when he stepped in the booth. It reminds you how music really is a universal language and something we can all connect over, you know.”

Hear the K.R.I.T.-featuring “Buzz” here, check out the new release of Dark Night Sweet Light on August 28 via Nettwerk, and see the rapper on tour in Australia at the following dates.

Big K.R.I.T. tour dates:

September 22 — Perth, Australia @ Villa
September 24 — Melbourne, Australia @ Max Watt’s
September 25 — Brisbane, Australia @ Zoo
September 26 — Sydney, Australia @ OutsideIn Festival

Complex.com: “Just A Kid From Meridian” Told By Big K.R.I.T.

Please enable Javascript to watch this video


All American children are bound to hear the message, at least once or twice, that they can accomplish whatever they set their minds to. Justin Scott was one of them. He grew up in Mississippi, a place where news headlines lament a failed education system and abysmal employment statistics. Steeped in a culture where crime and poverty are standard ways of life, Scott held on to his dream of doing something big. Facing odds stacked decidedly against him, he took his love for music to heart and focused his energy on his craft. Today, we know Scott as Big K.R.I.T., one of hip-hop’s rising stars.

K.R.I.T. was born in Meridian, Mississippi, a city built around railways and manufacturing. Meridian has a rich cultural history, but as with any city in the South, it has also seen its hard times, both socially and economically. He grew up in the “heart” of Meridian’s ghetto, and as he tells it, saw a variety of colorful characters everywhere he went in his neighborhood. K.R.I.T. stayed above the influence by dedicating himself to music, and, surprisingly, baseball. He credits his time on the baseball diamond with teaching him many valuable life lessons, including what it felt like to win. He threw a no-hitter to win the state championship in Biloxi, proving he had the makings of a champion athlete. But when, as a teenager, he inherited recording equipment from a local producer, he knew that music would be his future.
