Ever the thinking man's rapper, Mississippi's Big K.R.I.T. has released an ambitious debut album. Live from the Underground renders the vast canvas of the black American experience with a rich and descriptive palette. The album's sequence evolves like Malcolm X's path to enlightenment, from tales of ghetto survival ("If I Fall") to the awakening of Afrocentric consciousness. K.R.I.T. doles out pearls of wisdom on "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," from a place that's both fluid and deep: "Life is just a raffle/Mostly pain but some laughter." Beatwise, Live reps the South in all of its glory. Think Houston's chopped-and-screwed scene on "Hydroplaning" (featuring Devin the Dude), as well as many others. Delta blues bubbles up in "Praying Man" with B.B. King. It's a song told from the perspective of African slaves, nodding to another meaning behind the album's subterranean title.
