Big K.R.I.T represents Meridian to the fullest and is one of the most underrated but realest artists in the game. His rise to fame came in the mid 2000s, and he has been on a roll since then. I recently had the chance to see him live in concert back at the beginning of this year. The show was in Houston, and when I tell you that he had the entire room saying all the words to his songs, that would be an understatement.

He has released two albums on Def Jam Records, which was the home of LL Cool J, Jay-Z, EPMD, Rihanna, and so many others. You would think that he would be a sure win to have a platinum hit for sure. Well, he is no longer down with the Jam fam, and has decided to go the independent route with his upcoming venture. He stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk about his new found freedom and why it didn't work out with the label.

Big K.R.I.T Talks To The Breakfast Club:

For those who don't know, I am originally from Meridian and, although his reign came after I left, I am proud of what he is doing and really looking forward to seeing what the new year is going to be like for him. For those who want to keep up with him or get some merchandising, you can hit up his website here.
