After K.R.I.T. Wuz Here took the world by storm in 2010, K.R.I.T. was immediately snatched up by Sha Money XL at Def Jam Records, a good fit for the up-and-comer. In March of 2011, he dropped Return Of 4Eva, a 21-track debut album featuring the likes of Ludacris, Bun B, David Banner, and more. The album was released to rave reviews, and was placed on several Best Of 2011 lists from heavyweights like Rolling Stone Magazine, Prefix Magazine, and Pitchfork Media. Due to the immense popularity both K.R.I.T. Wuz Here and Return Of 4Eva will be re-released on CD and Vinyl in one week, May 8th on Nature Sounds.
The last couple years has seen Big K.R.I.T. hitting roads and stages with Soundset albums Method Man, Curren$y, and Wiz Khalifa. Not only that, he was featured in 2011 as one of XXL’s coveted Freshmen, alongside Mac Miller and Kendrick Lamar. He was also featured on The Roots latest album on the track "Make My".
Most recently, he dropped his first project on March 5th called 4evaNADay for free download. With more experience and skills to his name, he is releasing his debut Def Jam Records album called Live From The Underground on June 5th. The album is set to be his biggest project yet!
