Big KRIT - 'Live From The Underground'

A hip-hop album released 18 years too late

Big KRIT - 'Live From The Underground'

Album Info

  • Release Date: June 4, 2012
  • Producer: Big KRIT
  • Label: Def Jam
  • Fact: KRIT stands for King Remembered In Time
5 / 10 Though Big KRIT’s name proclaims an earnest desire for immortality, ‘Live From The Underground’ is a disappointing, forgettable album. A gravelly voiced insight into the everyday trials and tribulations of the man otherwise known as Justin Scott, it nevertheless sounds like a very old hip-hop album, one inspired 18 years too late by G-funk, hos and money. It breaks very little new ground – which does have the upside of the songs sounding catchy because you feel like you’ve heard it all before – though Melanie Fiona’s vocals on ‘If I Fall’ and Ludacris’ offerings on ‘What U Mean’ do at least inject a badly needed freshness.
