How did you discover Big K.R.I.T.?
I first heard Big K.R.I.T. on Wiz Khalifa’s“KushxOJ” back in April of 2010. I was reciting KRIZZLE verse on “Glass House” for a good 4 months before a friend of mine mentioned that she had his mixtape and i should check him out. When i heard “Something” it really stuck with me.
- “You the only one that eva eva eva, (got a hold of me). But you ain’t been the same, there was something that made you change. So tell me it was (something), or someone that made you feel good, or way better than i ever could. Truth is…its (bothering me) but I’m cool with it, just know if its over today that you did it…” -Something
“Something” is almost cathartic for me because he brought me so much peace in a situation very similar that i was dealing with. I found healing in the song. Its all history from there. :) I actually ended up meeting Big K.R.I.T. and seeing Curren$y Spitta for my birthday that October! It was amazing to say the least. I felt like I was the most excited person there. No one really knew who K.R.I.T. was; at the time, but i was overwhelmed as if I had been following his music since 05! Haha, reciting every word verbatim.(LOL)
What is your favorite Big K.R.I.T. song? Why?
ONE of my favorite Big K.R.I.T. songs to date, has to be “In the Rain.” Mostly because its teaching you to be patient with what you have while working to get where you want to be. It is so easy to become complacent in your situations or even worse, give up. He’s acknowledging that he has what it takes, but he’s waiting on his time. Patience
is what we lack, and need oh so desperately.

How has Big K.R.I.T. inspired you?
Big K.R.I.T. has inspired me by showing me that it is possible to stay true to yourself and get where you need to be. Sometimes I feel like im fighting against society, and my peers even. K.R.I.T. reminds me to stay true to myself. Not only this, but K.R.I.T.
inspires me in the sense that he is a young black man who is standing firm for the Lord. Which is not the most accepted or popular way to be these days. So I can only imagine how it is for him in the industry that he is in. So many times we try to leave our faith at the wayside when he feel like we have gotten what we wanted, or try to hide it when people have opposing views but K.R.I.T. is an example of that perfect balance. Not shoving it down your throat but he lets light shine, which makes me want to do better. He’s making Mrs. Linny proud and staying true to himself and that’s all that matters.

What is your favorite Big K.R.I.T. experience/story?
I think my favorite Big
K.R.I.T. experience has to be this past April when he performed at Trees in Dallas for the #ReturnOf4eva Tour. The 2nd show of the tour to be exact ;). K.R.I.T. was having his meet, and greet and I had the opportunity to speak with him, because he knew me. ( This was like the 3rd time I’ve met with him). I was acting really shy until @BIGSANT told me to get up there because he knew me. So I was the last person to see him, he smiled at me while meeting with some of his fans. When that was done I went to him and the way he looked at me and embraced me, like he’s known me my whole life. It really touched my heart. Not only this, but he remembered my friends! He asked them had they been alright since the last time he seen them(LOL). I introduced KRIZZLE to my friends at SXSW the month prior , and he addressed them at the #R4 tour. Just proved everything that I already believed about him already. Humble and down to earth, which is a beautiful quality that is oh so rare. Especially when people get a bit of fame. I was very happy to tell my mother that her cookies didn’t go to waste. :)
What makes you a Big K.R.I.T. fan?
I am a Big K.R.I.T. fan because i believe in everything he stands for. His music truly is #KRITKRACK, I cant go a day without my daily dose. Real talk. Its in me. I love how K.R.I.T. can spea
k from a woman’s point of view and actually make her sound human. Not desperate for love or degrading yourself. The stripper scenario in “They Got Us,” he acknowledges that she’s only stripping to pay her bills, and is not an oversexed object that lots of rap songs tend to do when it comes to speaking about women. And “YOKO” when i heard “She’s a man-eater” in the hook I was a little apprehensive but K.R.I.T. successfully spoke from that womans point of view as well, in a positive manner.
- “She aint trippin on the next man cause he cant have her either”- YOKO
I feel it! I don’t think Yoko is the girl you wanna take home to mama necessarily,
but she knows what she wants and that’s okay. And K.R.I.T. told this story without degrading her which would have been the case easily had this been another rapper. Not only this, but I have met some amazing people in this #K4L movement. Like Aminah said its amazing how you can feel so connected to a bunch of “strangers”. Its sooo much deeper than what appears on the surface. Not to mention that K.R.I.T. is a fucking beast; he don’t even have to rap, his music making abilities alone blows my mind. I love the harmonies! I hear you K.R.I.T.! Singing a little bit ;) Im excited about the growth he has already shown from “K.R.I.T. Wuz Here” to #ReturnOf4eva, and i love the signature ad-libs “aahhhhhhhh”(LOL). Cant wait to hear #LiveFromTheUnderground 9.27.11
- “Fresh to death, yes i be! God broke the mold when he designed me!”
LIGHTS OUT!! True story KRIZZLE, true story.
Dear Big K.R.I.T.
Dear Big K.R.I.T.
I hate to sound redundant but once again I MUST say THANK YOU. Thank you for sharing your life and your perspective. You have given my generation “reality rap” as you like to say. Thank you for being a positive role model for my peers, and the younger generation. I admire you because you have made it okay to be your damn self. All rappers say that they are being themselves which i do believe to a certain extent but its something different when it comes to you. You made it okay to be normal, talking about everyday life situations. I love that you don’t sweep your spirituality underneath the rug. Which lots of us do; famous or not, so we don’t stand out. And you have made it okay; to talk about now, which is wonderful in trying times like these.

You are MORE than a rapper, this I am sure of. You are on a spiritual mission and I really admire that. - LISA #K4L
