Balancing the challenge of staying true to his nitty-gritty southern roots and remaining in tune with his soul has been a walk in the park for the man getting high on spilled ink and delivering the real McCoy over tracks that will blow your speakers and spit nothin’ short of the truth. Whether spittin’ rhymes about his ol’ school Cadillac or counting stacks, Mississippi-bred rapper, Big K.R.I.T, has remained mysteriously unmoved by the media throughout his career detailing a rough adolescence while acutely equipped with his five senses. K.R.I.T’s alluring aesthetics over his 2012 mixtape, ‘4 Eva N a Day’, cohesively swirls together tracks that attract fans of Southern rap and those with a higher level of spiritual and mental intellect.
