Big K.R.I.T. Appreciates The Promotion From Kendrick Lamar

After his performance at the tenth annual Rock The Bells Festival in Los Angeles this week, Revolt TV caught up with Big K.R.I.T. to discuss his thoughts on being name-checked in Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control.” Big K.R.I.T. is appreciative that Kendrick Lamar mentioned him in a group of hip-hop’s most talented, young rappers.

“I mean, it’s one of them things where I appreciated the promotion for one, because he mentioned me and a lot of people were like, ‘Why the f—k he say Big K.R.I.T. name?’ Then they went and checked out my music, they went and heard “1 Train” and now they understand,” he told Revolt. While Big K.R.I.T. insists that he personally did not find the song to be an insult, he is a competitor and that hip-hop is a “gladiator kind of sport.”

In the interview, K.R.I.T. also spoke about the opportunity of performing at the Rock The Bells Festival in 2011 and his plans for his upcoming follow-up to his 2012 debut album, Live From The Underground. You can watch the entire interview in the video above.
