Artist: Big K.R.I.T.
Album: K.R.I.T. Was Here
Label: Cincematic Music Group

I was only recently put on to Big K.R.I.T., soon after that I downloaded his latest album and I was simply blown away! Finally a up and coming artist that knows how to capture his City, his Pain as well as his Struggles and still add Lyrical Content. Not to mention great production and create a complete album from beginning to end that music lovers can listen to. I remember there was a time in Hip-Hop when you listened to a certain artist and you would feel like you were from their city without ever visiting as each artist painted vivid pictures of their hometown perfectly. From the N.W.A. to Dr.Dre with his The Chronic album, right on down to Snoop Dogg and Tupac. They all made everyone feel like they were apart of LA without ever visiting and the same goes for artist like Nas, Notorious B.I.G. to Jay-Z who took you through journeys around New York. Outkast, T.I., Ludacris to Young Jeezy all showed everyone different sides of Atlanta with their music. Not to mention Luke, Trick Daddy and Rick Ross who gave you Miami,FL at it’s best. But some where along the lines more and more up and coming artist lost that feeling in their music and started following trends more than simply creating  good music and telling their story. Well, that is until now! I really believe Big K.R.I.T. has the potential to move Hip-Hop in the right direction and bring back that balance it’s been missing for some time and it’s no wonder why Def Jam newest executive Sha Money XL quickly made K.R.I.T. his very first signee. Not just limited to stories about “Mississippi” even though K.R.I.T. definitely represents for his hometown his records can relate to anyone from any hood across the country or around the world for that matter with records like “Children of The World” to personal favorites such as “They Got Us”. What more artist would like to say, Big K.R.I.T. does just that and creates amazing anthem’s like “HomeTown“, “Viktorious” and “Good Enough“. Even though they are sometimes noted voice similarities between and Pimp C, K.R.I.T. definitely has his own style that’s shown through out the album that he produced entirely by himself. Curren$y and Label mate Smoke DZA teams up with Big K.R.I.T. on “No Wheaties” for just one of the many hot collaborations on the album. Some key banger to keep on repeat are Glass House” ft Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y, “Something“, “Moom & Stars” ft Devin The Dude and “Country Shit“.
