Last but certainly not least, Big K.R.I.T. closes out XXL Freshman of the day series. Below, the Mississippi MC speaks on meeting the rest of his class.
It was definitely overwhelming, because—one, with the whole [wearing] make-up thing, it’s not really something I’m into. I don’t think I need that. [Laughs]. That was a little weird. And, just the whole preparation. Doing the round table, the rappers discussing their thoughts and opinions, the cypher and stuff like that, and then being able to just have fun at the shoot. Normally as an artist I don’t really have fun at photo shoots, but I was with my peers, and everybody laughing and kicking it, it was in-tune man. It wasn’t Hollywood, [with] everybody being bougie and all of that shit. Everybody was just down to earth and was really excited to be there. Everybody is putting out quality music, so it’s a new generation of rappers. I’m excited for what’s to come. Just making music that I feel was important.
