As the “Country Shit” remix continues to grow in popularity, Hip-Hop heads all over the country have been waiting for Big K.R.I.T.’s Def Jam debut, Live From The Underground. Sucks to say, but what was supposed to be a September 27th release date has been moved back a few months, now scheduled to touch down at the top of 2012. This news comes from Jonny Shipes, head of Cinematic Music Group, who tweeted ““Big K.R.I.T. #livefromtheunderground isnt droppin 9.27 anymore moved 2 top of next year. #goodtalk.”
Speculation is sure to run rampant over the delay, but in no way should this be considered a red flag. Given his excellent track record, a largely self-produced artist like K.R.I.T. can have all of the time he needs and we’ll assume it’s worth the wait. In the meantime, everybody should catch K.R.I.T. teaming up with Curren$y and Method Man on the Smoker’s Club Tour 2011, which I hate to say is completely bypassing Ohio. Off to Pennsylvania I go.
