Mississippi stand up! Reps for Def Jam have confirmed with XXLMag.com that up-and-coming Meridian, MS rapper Big K.R.I.T. has just inked a deal with the storied hip-hop label.

The 23-year-old MC/producer has been grinding on the underground circuit for a several years now, releasing a handful of mixtapes. Earlier this month he dropped his latest tape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, to rave reviews, showcasing both his lyrical talent and knack for soulful production.

  • mr.jones

    MERIDIAN IN THIS BITCH DOGG

  • Makko

    Last years were confusing. I heard so many different MC’s in the internet, and some of em i really liked. I have no time for counting at this point. But none of them would i ever call my favourite rapper.
    But since i heard K.R.I.T. i had a new favourite rapper. It’s his southern slang in combination with his deep and meaningfull lyrics that make him so special for me. His productions r very kool also. Really cant wait for his Major Debut. If someone deserves success its him. But i doubt he will blow up. Folks are dumb and need lame lyrics. So i guess rap wont ever get the tribute it should have in our society, as long as the people think Mac Miller is the essence. What a bad world i live in, its so sad. Big K.R.I.T. could be the change. He coud but i doubt he will.

  • Makko

    Here are 2 of my favourite K.R.I.T. cuts that are on heavy rotation since a while:
    “Kings Blues” —> IMO a real Masterpiece and in my top ten songs forever
    &
    “Now or neva”
