Big K.R.I.T. Gets Autobiographical About His Struggle To Climb Mt. Olympus (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Big K.R.I.T. is five years in on a journey to his own private “Mount Olympus.” However, for the Merdian, Mississippi native, the journey goes back a long ways before 2010’s Kritzwuzhere. On “K.R.I.T. 4eva (Chapter One),” the MC/producer channels the hunger—literally “a sandwich a day” as he recalls Greyhound bus trips to Atlanta, Georgia, handing out free CDs to un-enthused Heads, and getting clowned for his Ringtone Rap-era-sounding name.

However, this King Remembered In Time fought the fight (and he’s still fighting the charts) to get that recognition as a lyrical luminary and production power-house. For those thinking that K.R.I.T. is playing on heels more than his toes, this opens the chapter on a new book of illustrative words about life, love, and reaching for the top.

Why do you think Krizzle used a still from Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence’s Life to complement this song?
