Big K.R.I.T., the Mississippian with the silken rap voice and candy-coated production, will roar into the Mile High City this week with fresh material (his long-awaited album, Live From the Underground, was just released last month) and a smoldering intensity. Fighting the drudges of mainstream music with all his might, K.R.I.T. held off on releasing a full-length project, opting instead to drop several free mixtapes dedicated to the underground. Widely respected and regarded as one of hip-hop's rising stars, K.R.I.T. has built a staunch following among rap heads enamored of his Southern charm and honest lyrics. His sound is unique, and he offers a perspective that's a pleasant diversion in the rap climate.
