Justin Scott (born August 26, 1986), better known by his stage name Big K.R.I.T. (King Remembered In Time), is an American hip hop recording artist and record producer from Meridian, Mississippi. He is currently signed to Cinematic Music Group and Def Jam Recordings.

He’s also made guest appearances on Pilot Talk, the third studio album and major label debut from rapper, Curren$y as well as Kush and Orange Juice, the critically acclaimed mixtape by rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Despite the thumping 808s and southern bounce that flavor his trademark sound, K.R.I.T.’s music has always been highlighted by introspective tales about his lifelong struggles and ambitions. As he reflects on topics ranging from his childhood to his views on the modern music industry on tracks like “King Without a Crown” and “Talkin Bout Nothing” it’s hard to determine the strongest element of his sound: his complex and clever bars or the rousing soul samples and rapid percussion he so effortlessly lays them over.
The somber “Bigger Picture” captures Big K.R.I.T. at his best, both lyrically and sonically. “If I make it, I’ll come back to get you/It’s clear as day but you don’t see the vision,” he rhymes over subdued organs and a classic break beat. Though he paints his greatest pictures on his own, he shines just as brightly alongside his star-studded guest roster. From southern legend Bun B to new age stars Wiz Khalifa and Trinidad James, K.R.I.T.’s versatile skillset brings the best out of his diverse range of collaborators and challenges the mainstream conventions that currently rule hip hop’s airwaves.
From start to finish, King Remembered in Time is a compelling adventure in the passenger’s seat of one of hip hop’s fastest-rising young visionaries. Long past the stage of mastering his sound, Big K.R.I.T. is now free to cruise through the game at his own speed while his peers rush to reinvent themselves and try to keep up with the latest waves. While they follow the leaders, Big K.R.I.T. will continue to carve his own lane on the highway to becoming hip hop royalty. Follow on Twitter @BIGKRIT @MedievalBeatz Buy Rap Beats
