It hit me today that it’s almost football season, which also means we’re more than halfway through 2012. As I look back at the year in hip-hop so far, one emcee comes to mind immediately: Big K.R.I.T. The southern ambassador released his mixtape 4EvaNaDay in March, then four months later dropped his debut album, Live From The Underground, and somehow also managed to fit in a slew of production and guest features. Not bad for half a years work. Now the Def Jam artist brings us visuals for What U Mean, a bass busting, less than family friendly track off Live From The Underground. For this self-produced, speaker shatterer, Krizza stays true to his southern roots, recruiting fellow southerners Ludacris (who just released his own Jingalin video) for a guest verse and Decatur Dan to direct. So sit back and enjoy the distinct southern stylings of What U Mean, and be sure to keep an eye out for a candy painted tour bus, as K.R.I.T is currently out on his Live From The Underground Tour.

I’m willing to concede that there may be some people for whom Live From the Underground is their first real experience listening to Big K.R.I.T. To those people I say welcome, you’re not too late. Enjoy listening to a man...
