Big K.R.I.T., Live from the Underground — June 5
Mississippi rep Big K.R.I.T. pulled out the visual metaphors for his debut album. He chose a purple hued, spacey illustration of an old car that had crashed into the ground of a strange planet. In the corner of the image is his Reeses cup-esque logo with a cutout of the word “K.R.I.T.” Why the car? Why the crash? Because he has arrived. His cover is a presentation of his infiltration of the rap scene.
He put it in his own words on his website:
“This is the artwork 4 my debut album “Live From The Underground”. It’s a representation of how I feel about underground vs mainstream music. At times I feel like mainstream music operates on a totally different planet. This illustrates how I’ve crash landed into the mainstream to bring the sounds from the underground back 2 the forefront. I want to thank everyone for all their support of my journey so far. Especially Team Big K.R.I.T. and my K4L supporters. I put twitter and facebook backgrounds in here for y’all to put on your pages. Let’s make history on June 5th… – K.R.I.T.”
With this artwork, the King will indeed be Remembered In Time.
