Thursday To-Do: Big K.R.I.T.

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 8:58 AM

Big K.R.I.T. comes to Juanitas Thursday night.

BIG K.R.I.T.
9 p.m. Juanita's. $20.

While Big K.R.I.T. is no stranger to Little Rock, this show marks the first time the Meridian, Miss., native and rising rap star has come to town since the release of his Def Jam Records debut, "Live From the Underground," back in June.

The album has earned solid reviews, though in general the tone seems to have been tempered just slightly from the gushing accolades that were understandably elicited by his excellent mixtapes, "K.R.I.T Wuz Here" and especially "Return of 4Eva," which was produced entirely by K.R.I.T.

Matthew Keever of Houston Press wrote of last Saturday's House of Blues concert that the rapper "breathlessly regaled the crowd with an hour-long set, full of high-energy, club-ready verses that celebrate life in the South" and that his enthusiasm and energy were infectious.

I think you could safely wager that K.R.I.T. and company (including Houston heavyweight Slim Thug, Tito Lopez, Big Sant, GT Garza and local group Flint Eastwood) will bring it for Little Rock as well.
