[SOUTHERN-HOP] It’s hard not to respect Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. The sticky Southern drawler has built his reputation on quality self-produced projects that draw pictures of the South from the perspectives of both the pimp and the preacher. His beats are built on airy, soulful samples and 808 drums, similar to those heard on 1990s Goodie Mob records. He always seems to be wearing his big heart on his sleeve, especially in his live performances. So why hasn’t Krizzle quite made it? Because he fell into a routine. His major label debut, Live From the Underground, sounded too similar to his previous mixtures and, as a result, many viewed it as a disappointment. This only added fuel to K.R.I.T.’s fire, however, and pushed him to explore new beatmaking and songwriting directions on King Remembered in Time, his newest and best mixture thus far.
