Big K.R.I.T.’s Debut LP Pushed Back to 2012

It looks like September 27 won’t be a day filled with former XXL Freshmen releasing their debut albums, after all.

Though J. Cole’s Cole World: The Sideline Story is still slated to drop on that date later this month, Yelawolf recently pushed his Interscope debut Radioactive to an October 25 release date, and now Big K.R.I.T. has announced that his Def Jam debut, Live From The Underground, won’t be hitting ears until early next year.

Early this morning, Jonny Shipes, head of Cinematic Music Group, took to Twitter to make the announcement. “Big K.R.I.T. #livefromtheunderground isnt droppin 9.27 anymore moved 2 top of next year. #goodtalk (sic),” Shipes wrote. Though no other details were revealed, and K.R.I.T. did add anything himself (he retweeted Shipes’s post), it seems the southern spitter and his label felt he could benefit from having some more time to properly finish his major label debut. Krizzle’s single, “Country Shit (Remix)” featuring Bun B and Ludacris is currently resting on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart.

Stay tuned to for more updates on Big K.R.I.T.’s Live From The Underground. —Adam Fleischer
