Big K.R.I.T. "Live From The Underground" Tracklist & Full Album Stream

UPDATE #3: NPR has the "First Listen" to Big K.R.I.T.'s debut album, "Live From The Underground" over a week before release date.

Big K.R.I.T. was originally set to release his debut Live from the Underground on September 27th, but decided to push it back on his own terms. During an interview with WCGI’s DJ Moon Dawg (via FSD), the Def Jam signee revealed that the LP will arrive in January 2012 and that its delay was due to sample clearance issues.

Live from the Underground will drop 2012, first quarter, next January. It originally was supposed to come out September 27th. I pushed it back because of sample clearances. I realized I’ve given away a lot of free music. It’s cool to sample anything you want when it’s free. Retail? They’re not having that,” he said. “So reaching out to people as far as sample clearances. There’s one feature I had the opportunity to try to get on the album. It is going down and I will not say who it is. Nobody will figure this out anyways. It’s an amazing feature. It’s crazy. I produced a lot of the stuff.”

He also explained how his recent feature and production on T.I.’s “I’m Flexin’” came to be, stating that Tip reached out to him two days after he got out of prison.

“He reached out to my folks Sha Money just on the producer, beats. I was like, yeah man, I got two records. At the time, I was getting ready to go on the road, I was still working on my album, I hadn’t been producing much for other artists. I sent him two tracks, he picked ‘I’m Flexin.’ It had a vintage vibe and I think when he heard it, he knew exactly where I was trying to go with it as well. It just worked out.”

Watch the full interview below.

    Theres a new cat coming out of Orlando with a similar vibe. Homeys name is HAM and he is doing his thing on tracks like http://ham-stevie.viinyl.com/. He is definitely an artist to keep an eye on, especially with a mixtape around the corner.

    He gave yall 3 free incredible mixtapes and you are questioning whether or not to buy this album? C'mon now... Might as well show him some support. I hope this does great numbers but I have a feeling its going to do more like Radioactive numbers..

    The album was pretty average, sadly. He should have saved songs like 'Handwriting' and 'Boobie Miles' for the album, not his mixtapes

Instead of promoting your "favorite rappers" you are making everyone hate them. im especially talking to you YESSIR. you are a sad little guy. I have not even heard the album yet. Im waitin to buy it and support my boy Krit. real heads will do the same. I know it will be a great album. And all yall high and mighty listners who are cryin about the hooks can go suck a dick.

    well since this an article on Big K.R.I.T ill actually type something about the article. first impressions on the album, 5/5 imo, the whole album flows very well from the bangers and smooth track to the instrospective, but its not overloaded with either type, K.R.I.T actually sounds looser and more relaxed on some of the songs, sounded to me like he found his comfort zone. Hooks arent anything special, but to me this didnt matter, i could put any of the songs on and they just were so smooth with K.R.I.T's voice and excellent beats. its not overloaded and sprawling like his first 2 free albums (classics by the way) and each song fits and has its own thing, no 2 tracks sound the same. only track id skip really is Yeah Dats Me, but even this track id play in the whip at least, i call that track K.R.I.T in a more aggresive playful mode. the first half of the album has more energetic tracks mixed with the smooth seductive tracks like Porchlight and My Sub Part 2. The last half has my now favorite song of the year, Praying Man, a stunning and powerful track with support from the legendary B.B. King. all in all, imo, K.R.I.T crafted an excellent debut album, well produced but not over produced, organic and never straying from his country roots, and finds K.R.I.T's rapping improved greatly, not sounding like a younger Pimp C as much anymore but having his voice and style. the common complaint with people is that it supposedly doesnt live up to the standards of his previous mixtapes, and thats all relative and a matter of opinion. i myself judge works on their own merit and dont compare to past works, like how everyone compares every Nas album to Illmatic. I enjoyed this album very much and listened to it many times after the first, its consistent, it has some of the best beats today that dont cater to this garbage society of popular music today, and is an album i believe will stand the test of time, sure there arent any hits, but with todays standards of what a hit should be, this a good thing. again, i give this album a 5/5, and encourage people to buy this album and support good music and a hard working artist who unlike everyone else, cares about the music.

  • YESSIR

    Needs to do some work with Outkast. Krits beats are always great but he can ruin some songs with poor hooks, gettin better tho. Outkast always had brilliant hooks and i think could really lift a song into mainstream recognition.

    • ETK

      Get off your high horse bitch nigga. You're one of those underground scrubs that revel in deep lyrics, but when there's a song with above average lyrics and a popular catchy hook you guys won't care either. Y'all either think that's not possible or the lyrics aren't all that because there's popish melody in it, which makes you just as guilty for this short attention span bullshit. Either way, you obnoxious bitch niggas need to drop dead

    • fuckhooks

      who the fuck cares about hooks, all you short attention span faggots only care about hooks, never listening to verses, just the hook, Illmatic had next to no hooks, hell when Nas had hooks they werent that good and noone says shit, Eminem had plenty of poor hooks on his best albums and noone says shit, K.R.I.T has perfectly fine hooks that arent pop and dont go for being catchy like everything else, but people always have to bitch and moan. but to each his own, just fucking sad people need hooks to like music. if i could mutilate all you faggots who trash good music like K.R.I.T's i would, you all are garbage

    First genuinely dope southern artist in over ten years in my opinion.

  • gaingreen

    Big K.R.I.T. represents the south before "Trap Music". The southern rap has alot of disappointment because its watered down with only lyrics of dope, hoes and jewelry. There is way more to the south than that and that is what he is about. Wayne is a POP artist. Wayne went to Cali saw skateboarding and now got yall FOLLOWERS wearing skinny jeans.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne and Drake are da best sellin rapperz of the decade. real niggaz is bumpin platinum albumz. "Goolish" iz da shit in da hood rite now. ya dig? Big KRIT aint shit. Lil Wayne rapz better, skate better, look better den diz fat ass nigga. swag

      As much as I hate wayne and drake..they are the highest selling THIS decade, which began just 2 years go mind you...Well except EM still doe...he's still crushing them1 combined...but Jay only has the Throne this decade

    • fuckymcmb

      Eminem and Jay-Z are the highest selling rappers of the decade, from album sales and tours and all that shit, first of all, Em made more sales with The Marshall Mathers LP in a couple months than both Drake's albums and Wayne's last couple combined, plus every single one of his albums have gone platinum and he's pushing 40, same with Jay. Wayne and Drake are still young and already the smart people of this world are getting sick of them, noone credible is even looking for Wayne's next wack album or Drake's next vagina monolouges.

      then don't buy the album then, you sound like a child, bitching about hooks, that some teenager shit right there. the hooks aren't even bad, and can be looked past if you have even above a 100 iq, which it seems you lack. us people who support real music will buy this excellent album, while a small minded simp like you can get the next Lil Wayne or Gucci Mane album.

    Gave the album a listen. One of the greatest hip-hop albums of 2012. There's a balance between bangers and smooth shit. Lyrically and musically, it's on point. Anyone who says its wack either has bad ears or didn't even listen to the whole album. Regardless of how much it sells, the music quality beats most albums released this year.

      I respectfully disagree, I think it's just "good" not a classic. I feel all of his mixtapes were better in multiple ways, namely hooks subject matter and overall creativity. Beats are on point though.

      the hooks are actually pretty good but thats your opinion if theyre not, but i will be supporting this album like all people should, oh and fuck Trouble Man, no nigga is looking for that shit, T.I iis washed the fuck up. and before you bitch about hooks, your boy Nas has the worst hooks these days and beats.

  • spapstein

    guys are going to be throwing 5 stars all around, but listening to the difference in quality between the last 4 songs and the rest of the album, you would have to give this 4/5 tops. If the album was on the level of those final tracks, it would be classic. KRIT has potential to create something pure, but I would like to hear less booty shaking

    Carter 4 was wayyy harder than this shit, all i hear on this album its bass heavy pop ballads

  • Star

    The album is good really. If you listen to it from start to finish it flows smooth. I would buy the album it's worth it

  • KD

    I'm going to go ahead and purchase it when it comes out, just cuz I mess with KRIT so heavy and he has given me so much great music. However, I was not that impressed. Its not like his style,sound, or anything majorchanged. But it just wasn't that good. Either the production was not as "polished" or it could be the fact that I have listened to so much KRIT in the last couple years that it sounds like "I have heard it before". I think I see what people mean, when they say we live in a Hip Hop generation where so much music is given, that we play them out our ownself and then aren't impressed with their first album because there is no anticipation.

  • Xeno

    Listened once through it now. Couldn't find a weak song. It got more variety than Krits previous album. There are some melancholic tracks, some catchy tracks... His second album could get even better tho imo because he has to get used to producing beats himself instead of sampling first.

  • Sweetre15

    Based on first listen, I definitely think this is a dope album....And I plan to buy it next week for more listens....I hope the rest of y'all wanting "real hip-hop" do the same

    • ASEE

      You shouldn't be posting that shit man. Takin away from KRIT's sales. By the way, for anyone thinking of DLing this fucker's link the quality must be shit because the zip's only 60mgs. Shit man if you gonna pirate at least do that shit right. Keep it 320 foo.

  • Anonymous

    A great mixtape and 2 classic mixtapes and yall are talking about not buying this album because you don't like one or two features or a single or two? Since when are singles an accurate reflection of the album? Plus like I said he gave us 3 incredible free projects if this one isn't that great we can still buy it, I mean I can't imagine its going to be terrible...

    this album was wack, heard the whole thang, shiiiitt, T.I. no mercy album sounded betta than this shit, this shit is sad, all subwoofers and bass, no substance, country ass east coast rappers, generic ass shit, lackluster ass album, where the content at?? I Am Not a Human Being II comin soon niggas

      Who cares about I'm Not A Human Being 2? There's not even a single.

    • Racha

      I was taking your comment serious till you said "I Am Not a Human Being II" KRIT is music where Wayne is just noise. Acknowledge the difference than your comments will provide value.

    • pisses me again

      ment to say this album is dope aswell. atleats a 4.5..idk if its quite a classic but we will wee in time

    • pisses me of

      i really wish more people new about control system. def fav this year so far..my first listen i was an instant fan..been liking kendrick for a while but ab- soul is def T.D.E. secret weapon

    • ItsTheTruth

      ^^^Ignore the clown above me. Skyzoo? Saigon? LMAO, those boring ass, monotone-rapping, no charisma-having rappers? GOOD ONE! Tell your boy Saigon to stick to his word, how he gonna diss Ross, then deny it, then have audio out confirming he dissed them. Thats why it took him years to put out GSNT, face it, him and sky are just mixtape rappers and that's all it's gonna be lol. Nothing wrong with that, but there's a reason they are where there at. On some real shit, Ab-Soul's Control System is one of the best (if not THE best) released this year so far. And Krit is right up there with this debut.

    no features fr wayne ross eminem jeezy nas jayz kanye drake ?? ur album is flopping n will not sell

    • Anonymous

      Haha like Ross or Jeezy would increase the sales when niether of them can sell well anymore (and Ross never even did much numbers ever) Plus this album would be better without those fools, the only great rappers there are Eminem and Jay-Z and they probably wouldn't sound right over these kind of beats Not to mention Jay fell off big time so

      As long as it's quality music, fuck sales.

    I am disappointing about the track list

  • Anonymous

    To all the people complaining about the amount of features. I would have agreed with you 10 years ago but Hip Hop has changed, a debut album used to be the first thing you would ever here from an artist so it would make sense to have very few features to establish your own personality but nowadays (thanks to the internet) by the time an artist drops their debut chances are we will have heard a lot of music from them already. We must have heard at least 60 solo tracks from KRIT in the last 2 and a half years, we all know him very well by now. I personally just want dope music from this album and people like Bun B, Luda and B.B King are only gonna add to that experience.

    its sad that one artist ft will lead me to not buy this album. i couldnt wait for this album and Krit deserves the money but i fuckin hate 2chainz so much that now i will no longer be copping this one. im disappointed in Krit.

  • Sonny Rene

    the word "classic" gets thrown around to much these days but I'll be disappointed if this LP is anything but. K.R.I.T. is an amazing artist and I have very high expectations, but I'm sure he'll reach them.

  • aniggnigg

    very nice tracklist and cool coverart. just wish he has a song with phonte cuz they were perfect on "life of kings". Wither way I'm forsure picking this album up

    im gonna buy the CD. he gave way too much free quality music. he deserves that 15$ without a doubt

      I can tell these are real organic features..these ain't " I got to work with mc such and such cause he's hot". I mean damn he got BB KING...what rap nigga you know got a song with him?

    • Alf Capone

      i love the devin feature. devin is great

    • solohoe

      maybe be more features than normal but these arent real cliche features and its nice to see K.R.I.T reach out to his southern rap and r&b folk too. Praying Man is gonna be classic

  • Trypticon

      Young money is the hip hop version of SAVED BY THE BELL...

    • mike

      Stupid ass nigga!!! Fuck Drake and fuck wayne. This album is going to be a classic without all the radio hype. Do you care about how much they ell or what is the quality of the music. I would rather him sell less than a mill but sounds like a classic. Big krit is going to do his thing and all the real fans have to go out and support him.

    • therehego

      K.R.I.T didnt sell out like a little faggot and put the Glee queers from Young Money on there so props to him

    • pope

      As hip-hop fans, we dnt really care about sales from these good up-and-coming artists. We can worry about sales when u have already established ur self. Big Krit isnt established like Nicki so how much do u expect from him? He's gettin no radio play and just start gettin some TV exposure...Not only did Nicki's albulm flop but her new music was also bad. If Krit can drop some good quality rap music, I cud care less about his sales.

    Okay, this is a dope album cover.

    Not saying it's any indication of the music (It probably is) but that is a classic album cover.

  • Young King

    *great summer for Hip Hop*

  • Young King

    K.R.I.T droppin June 5th and Slaughterhouse droppin June 12th.. yeah as far as Hip Hop goes I think those are the only albums that matter this summer.. oh and of course Nas.. and a big maybe 50 Cent (since he's claiming he "really feels like this album is better than get rich", we'll see) but yeah gonna be a great summer Hip Hop can't wait.

  • ItsTheTruth

    First off I'm from Detroit and listen to midwest music like Em, Royce, Obie, Tech N9ne, etc...But yo when I listen to Krit music, he really captures the atmosphere of the south and puts it into his music so well that he makes me feel like I came from the south. Kinda makes me wish I was born and raised in the south haha. He's so humble and passionate and does it for the art of hip-hop, not for the fame/money and that's why he's gonna have respect from real hip-hop fans and have longevity in the game. 90% of these other cats are running out of their 15 minutes soon.

    • Trypticon

      Co-sign 100 percent!! I'm from Cali but I feel like a know the South just from listening to K.R.I.T. and his music.

  • TiiDo

    Awwwww!!!!! love the art, still bugging out over 4eva & a Day. K.R.I.T. is anticipated. Kendrick,K.R.I.T.,eLZhi (not sure),Skyzoo... sounds like a good year for hip hop.

    • Bom919

      Well KRIT and Kendrick are pretty anticipated albums. I feel like both of them will do decent numbers, especially Kendrick, I feel like he's the next new comer to blow up big. And KRIT will have a decent buzz soon too Im sure. But for the last two....uhhhh...not so much. I doubt were gonna hear ppl getting hyped bout that new Elzhi or Skyzoo album...

  • lloyd

    Krit always have dope ass mixtape/album covers

  • Frankie

    I'm Buying. I ain't bought a CD since Cuban Links Part 2. But K.R.I.T. is the real deal. Lets get it!

  • DinkinFlicka

    KRITs definitely got my support. Seems like a great guy and he produces some quality music, especially for a newcomer.

  • damn

    krit prolly the only artist the active that could carry a whole album with no features and it still b great music

  • Camaro

    This dude gave away two cd's that were better than every other nigga's official shit. It's been a long time since I've anticipated a cd release. KRIT has got me amped. Wayne, Jay & Ye, Ross, may sell more albums but their shits will not have our hearts like KRIT's music. Stay country and humble, KRIT, and u will win for years to come.

    • TaZzZ

      Him and Yela are the collabo I'm waiting on... Hope that shits for real. Everything they have done together so far is incredible. If he were to do a whole project, Yela is the only southern newcomer I think can carry a full album alongside KRIT, especially on his beats. Wheres the KRIT/Kendrick collabo? It makes no sense that these two have yet to cross paths but those two tradin beats over a KRIT bang could be the illest summer joint join, ya dig? Someone put that together, pleaaaaase

    • Ugh

      if he grouped with bob that would be a big mistake

    • Zeal

      If he grouped up with B.o.B. he'd make pop records
