After re-releasing K.R.I.T. Wuz Here and Return of 4Eva earlier this month, master of mixtapes Big K.R.I.T. will drop his first studio full-length next month. Live From The Underground, which was initially slated for release last September, was pushed back to the beginning of this year and will finally arrive on June 5 via Def Jam.
The album uses the rapper’s signature dense, fast-paced rhyming to play out the clash between the personal nature of his music and the mainstream world into which its success has forced him. With guest spots for B.B. King, Anthony Hamilton, Ludacris and Bun B, it is now streaming over at NPR.
