WTOK.com: Big K.R.I.T. Headlines Wechsler Day 2018

This is the Wechsler School. The first publicly funded, brick school for African-Americans in Mississippi. The school closed over 30 years ago, but that hasn’t slowed down supporters from keeping this building’s memory alive.

“Right now, the Wechsler School, the building itself is the last standing building that reflects the heritage of the African-American community here in Meridian,” said Eugene Boger, board member of the Wechsler Foundation.

The 5th Annual Wechsler Day & Homecoming pulls together the community to bring awareness towards restoration efforts of the historic site. Some of the biggest events included a 3-on-3 basketball tournament and an all-out parade, led by music star and Meridian native, Big K.R.I.T.

“Between playing basketball, we played football at the top. My grandmother was actually the person that used to hold the key for anybody that would do anything in the building. Like I literally grew up right across the street,” said Big K.R.I.T..

NPR.org: Big K.R.I.T. Tiny Desk Concert

Grandmothers never truly die. Especially not when they bear as much influence on your life as Big K.R.I.T.’s grandmother has on his. The Mississippi spitter has kept her spirit alive through his music since his breakout mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, which he released in 2010, the same year she died.

So it only makes sense that he would bring her with him for his Tiny Desk concert.

Halfway through his three-song set at NPR Music headquarters, K.R.I.T. stops to pull out an old-school tape recorder — the same one his grandmother would use to record him singing and reciting poetry as a child. “I have to feel like my grandmother was my first mix engineer,” he says before pressing play to reveal him and his brother as kids singing a duet of R&B crooner Donell Jones’ 1999 slow burner, “Where I Wanna Be.”

Big K.R.I.T.’s On ‘4eva Is A Mighty Long Time’ Being Chosen As Your Best Rap Album Of 2017

Big K.R.I.T. has always had the air of a DIY artist. However, in 2017 he took his independence to a new level. Going out on his own, K.R.I.T. launched the Multi Alumni imprint. He put his savings on the line to make 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time over the course of the last two years. While going for broke, Krizzle did as influences including UGK and 8Ball had done in the past. He released a conceptual double album. With self-confidence in the driver’s seat, Big K.R.I.T. buckled up, bringing new meaning to “glass house” in commandeering his most vulnerable and courageous album to date. Listeners responded, especially readers of Ambrosia For Heads, who voted it the Best Rap Album of 2017, in a Sweet 16 tournament. In the championship round, Big K.R.I.T.’s third album proved its might. In response, yesterday (January 3), AFH spoke to Big K.R.I.T. about this album, its creation, and why this effort marks a new peak in elevation for an artist that has already accomplished so much.

Ambrosia For Heads: You literally put your all into this album-emotionally, financially and spiritually—for more than two years. How does it feel to have 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time recognized by the listeners as the Best Rap Album of 2017?

Big K.R.I.T.: Brother, it’s amazing. It’s a blessing. It’s one of those things where spending so much time making music once again, I just went back to that [mind-state] of just wanting people to hear it. I really shed a lot of the competitiveness, and a lot the frustration and bitterness that I had on previous albums. This one was just all about doing exactly what I wanted to do. Either you love it or hate it. [I was] not trying to be neutral, and not really focusing on the sound of the music at the time. I was just doing what I felt, and I’m glad it paid off. It took two years to create the project. But that time was so necessary, ‘cause I was living life. I think it shows in the music. People can hear that hunger that I used to have, back on my previous works. It just shows through. I had a certain kind of freedom that I’ve never had before. It’s just a blessing to see the way that people respond to the music. It exceeded all my expectations, brother, trust me. All of them.
