Big K.R.I.T. (born Justin Scott), who grew up in Meridian, MS, began listening at an early age to his grandmother's R&B records which built his musical foundation on such beloved soul artists as Curtis Mayfield, Willie Hutch and Bobby Womack as well as the southern hip-hop from the 1990's. Now, on tour to support his first studio album, 'Live From The Underground,' K.R.I.T. remains true to his roots by acknowledging the musical history of the south, while also pressing forward with his own viewpoints and perspectives and seeking insight from veteran voices including Anthony Hamilton, Big Boi, Melanie Fiona and more.
