Big K.R.I.T. Brings a Family Reunion Vibe to House of Blues

Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. (an acronym that stands for King Remembered in Time) has battled his own demons and wrestles with the duality of being K.R.I.T as well as Justin Scott. The rapper burst onto the national scene in 2010 with his K.R.I.T. Wuz Here mixtape which ended up landing him a deal with Def Jam Records.

His journey in the industry has been well-documented, but he has persevered and earned the respect of his peers and also helped to grow his fan base over the years. His concerts are notoriously known to be full of energy and theatrics, and the From the South With Love tour was poised to be no different as the show rolled into the House of Blues.

As the house lights came back on after the opening acts, life-sized crowns with a turquoise glow adorned each side of the stage along with a video screen in the center. A short intro video set the scene — K.R.I.T. is coming. Suddenly, he darted out from stage left to the sound of “K.R.I.T. Here,” much to the audience’s chagrin, and the show was ready to begin. “I Been Waiting” followed, with the enthusiastic crowd still rhyming in tow with the Mississippi-born emcee. As K.R.I.T. took a moment to catch his breath, he likened the concert to more of a family reunion before performing two more songs from his latest album in “I Made It” and “Learned From Texas.”
