With transcendent execution, Live From The Underground fittingly builds upon this mission, and likewise never loses sight of what got Justin Scott to this point.

It’s rare when an artist can actually have his “underground” sound translate so well to his debut project, but Big K.R.I.T. has somehow done just that.

He's also known for laying it all out, his insecurities, regrets, harsh-realities of life, etc. This LP is the culmination of said various styles and flows he's displayed on his phenomenal mixtapes, & his ability to juggle it all with finesse showed the world he was capable of delivering classic LP after ... read more
