TOP 5 DEAD OR ALIVE: Big K.R.I.T.

The industry and street buzz surrounding Meridian, Mississippi native Big K.R.I.T. is louder than an angry killer bee swarm these days. AllHipHop.com caught up with the newest member of Def Jam’s rap roster at his tour stop in New York City to find out who his biggest Hip-Hop influences are:

AllHipHop.com: We do a regular feature called “Top 5 Dead or Alive” – can you name yours?

Big K.R.I.T.: Andre 3000, Cee-lo Green, Pimp C, Scarface, and Bun B

AllHipHop.com: Can you tell us why they’re your Top 5?

ANDRE 3000 & CEE-LO

Big K.R.I.T.: Being able to watch Andre 3000 and Cee-lo Green transform into the artists that they’ve become now and not really have no barriers at all, as far as like “this is Hip-Hop…I’ma sing…I’ma play the guitar on my s**t…I’ma do me.” That really drove me to be like alright, I can transform and transcend from that box they put you in as far as Hip-Hop.

PIMP C

Big K.R.I.T.: Pimp C for saying whatever the f**k he felt. You know? I’m saying like it was from this man’s heart everytime you seen him. That was him…it wasn’t a façade, it wasn’t because somebody told him. You know what I’m saying?

SCARFACE

Big K.R.I.T.: Scarface for the storytelling – the soul he puts into it, the amount of honesty he puts into his music.

BUN B

Big K.R.I.T.: Bun B is probably one of the most consistent muthaf*ckas EVER. He’s always gonna kill a record. Don’t EVER sleep on him. You know what I’m saying, he’s been doing it for years and years consistently, and I don’t know another muthaf**ka that gets in the studio and do that type of s**t.

THE SIDEBAR

Big K.R.I.T. – “Children of the World”

Big K.R.I.T. – “Hometown Hero”
