Last Tuesday (June 5) was the day Big K.R.I.T. has been anticipating. The rapper/producer released his debut album, “Live From the Underground” after intricately lacing the debut album for two years. On the exclusive documentary above, directed by Steve-Ography and edited by Slick Jackson, fans get a sneak peek into the making of the full-length opus, from recording studio sessions, listening sessions, interviews, to a few words from K.R.I.T. and his manager, Johnny Shipes.
“Man… It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally here. My album ‘Live From The Underground’ is online and in stores,” K.R.I.T. tells The Juice. “In this video you’ll get to see some of the process of making the album. You’ll get to see me working with legend B.B. King in the studio and hear some great stories about some of the songs and the album cover. Y’all enjoy.”
The hard work from K.R.I.T. and his team is paying off. This week, “Live From the Underground” debuts on the Billboard 200 at No. 5 with 41,000. His album also comes in at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and the Rap Albums chart.
