Today (August 26), Big K.R.I.T. turns 29 years old. Born in 1986, the Meridian, Mississippi MC/producer named Justin Scott has risen to the top of the creative ranks in Hip-Hop since his mid-twenties. The Cinematic Entertainment artist was surprised with a special birthday present: a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

The white box-style Chevy came with red Super Sport stripes, a saddle leather gut, wide deep-dish rims, removable glass roof, and a custom big block hood. Reacted to what he considers one of his favorite rides, Krizzle made a song about it. “86” celebrates K.R.I.T.’s latest “glass house,” with an aggressive bassline and chorus, and a whole lot of cruisin’ pride. The slammin’ Slab Music is also available for free download, as K.R.I.T. celebrates his born day with his fans.

Photographed with Pontiac Grand Prix’s, Cadillac El Dorado’s, and Lincoln Continental’s, this adds to the celebrated artist’s arsenal in his drive-way.
