Although 80 percent of the folks don’t know who Big K.R.I.T. is, I must say that I was disappointed that the Old Rock House wasn’t packed all the way out last Wednesday as one of rap music’s rising stars blessed the stage. I was expecting the crowd to be hanging out the windows from the second floor and being forced to listen from across the street like the time Wiz Khalifa came to town as an underground star. Oh well. Even though it was so empty towards the front you could turn backflips, K.R.I.T. still killed it like he was performing before a sold-out show at the Scottrade as he and Slim Thug headlined the Kings of Underground (or something like that) rap show. I can’t tell y’all how much I live for him – he picks up where 8Ball & MJG left off before they got kind of corny. Even though the bulk of the city’s hip-hop heads may not be on K.R.I.T. now, y’all will be…and I will relish in the opportunity to say I told you so when he becomes a household name! As far as Slim Thug goes, I protested his performance because of that mess he cranked up about black women a couple of years back. The only way he could pay me to bother is if he did a public press conference with Jimmy Swaggert tears and an “I have sinned against you” monologue. I won’t be holding my breath though.
