Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. has spent the last six years doling out mixtapes, singing the praises of his often-ignored hometown and the adversities and triumphs he’s faced. Of these releases, the last two efforts, 2010’s K.R.I.T. Wuz Here and this past April’s Return of 4eva, caught the attention of the hip-hop world for their socially relevant lyrics and car rattling beats. Now, the 24-year-old MC faces the biggest challenge of his career when he drops his debut LP, Live From The Underground, this September 27th via Def Jam Records. Announced via K.R.I.T.’s Twitter, no additional details are as yet available; however, stay tuned for more as they’re announced.
