Meridian, Mississippi is back in the building as her native son Big K.R.I.T. springs back onto the scene in anticipation of the March 22, release of his Return of 4 Eva free album with a lulling, self-produced track aptly titled Dreamin. After the success he saw in 2010, K.R.I.T. is pausing to reflect upon his roots in his new song; think of it like Dreamin is to K.R.I.T. what Juicy was to Biggie, to a certain extent. K.R.I.T. is still on the come-up, and he’s humble enough to look back at how far he’s come, from writing rap lyrics on his baseball mitt during his athletic stint in high school to being featured in magazines like Spin and XXL (and, may we add, DJBooth). He’s come a long way from Meridian, and the best part is he’s still got a long, long way to go – that’s our hope anyway. A new website has been launched for the upcoming album: returnof4eva.com. Check it out, make yourself comfortable and of course check back with DJBooth.net for more Big K.R.I.T. as it becomes available
