In The Know and Complex News have come together to bring you the latest news in hip hop music and culture.
While the Mississippi-native Big K.R.I.T. has yet to gain mainstream success, he does have one famous person who is very much in his corner — Waka Flocka.
Flocka gave the rapper huge praise during his appearance on “Drink Champs” where he told hosts N.O.R.E and DJ EFN that Big K.R.I.T. is “the most underrated rapper” of his generation.
“Yo, if God asked me, ‘How do you wanna rap?’ I’d be like, ‘Let me rap like Big K.R.I.T.,'” Flocka said. “K.R.I.T. is a Southern version of Nas. I always wanted them to do music.”
Flocka continued, saying no one could out-rap Big K.R.I.T. and that his “substance” and “understanding” make him untouchable as an artist.
Big K.R.I.T.’s last album, “K.R.I.T. Iz Here” was released in 2019 and he recently added four new songs to his “K.R.I.T. Wuz Here” mixtape, which is available on streaming platforms.
