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.

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.
