After multiple delays, coupled with a mass amount of incredible mixtape material to tide fans over, Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. is finally ready to drop his highly anticipated debut solo record, Live from the Underground, on June 5th. The Def Jam rap-star took to his official website to unveil the artwork for the forthcoming LP, and also provided a meaningful description of the cover:
This is the artwork 4 my debut album “Live From The Underground”. It’s a representation of how I feel about underground vs mainstream music. At times I feel like mainstream music operates on a totally different planet. This illustrates how I’ve crash landed into the mainstream to bring the sounds from the underground back 2 the forefront. I want to thank everyone for all their support of my journey so far. Especially Team Big K.R.I.T. and my K4L supporters. I put twitter and facebook backgrounds in here for y’all to put on your pages. Let’s make history on June 5th… – K.R.I.T.
