Big K.R.I.T is making a stop in the Queen City at the Fillmore with his “From the South with Love” Show on November 9th. Doors open at 7p and the showtime is at 8p.



Big K.R.I.T. is a rapper’s rapper—clever with lyrics, nimble with rhyme flows, and generous
with food for thought. But the Meridian, Mississippi artist, whose stage name is an acronym for
King Remembered In Time, isn’t just here to wow you with his words; K.R.I.T. wants to be a
voice for the people.

After years of making it cool to be Southern, K.R.I.T. is preparing a third album that
covers both personal tumult—the dangers of chasing validation and importance of self-
care—and troubled times as the U.S. is plagued by police brutality and social unrest. “This thing
that we're going through now isn't new under the sun, and it's probably not going to be the last
time there's so much inequality, so much hatred, so much violence,” says K.R.I.T., who’s
enlisted Dj Dj Khalil, Mannie Fresh and Supah Mario for his upcoming project. “How do you
create a song that puts people in a mindframe that they can overcome? I gotta say how I feel.”
He’s advancing musically as well, pushing the pre-existing aesthetics of his native region
even further. “People know that when I give ’em something it’s going to be all-the- way
right—it’s gon have a theme, a plot, and it’s going to stand the test of time,” says K.R.I.T. “It’s

the perfect time to create a different kind of wave of what you even think Southern, country,
soulful music is.”
