Video: HoodHype + Big K.R.I.T. Interview
May 2, 2011


What can I say? We were grateful to be given the opportunity to squeeze in a quick interview with K.R.I.T. before his show here in Michigan. K.R.I.T. was an incredibly humble, laid back dude and was every bit as appreciative of what we do as we are of his work.

In an industry overrun by self-righteous, self-centered rap artists with inflated egos that have issues with entitlement at such an early stage in their career.... not to mention their management and publicity teams who suffer from a psychological term referred to as "basking in reflected glory" (or BIRGing), it was an incredible breath of fresh air to speak with a humble Big K.R.I.T. and his team on the Return Of 4 Eva tour.

During the interview, his team was in a crazy rush to get moving for sound check (we were standing right outside his van there). And even as they yelled out the door, started up the engine to the van and continued to load up,  K.R.I.T. made a point to talk with us even after we finished filming and introduce himself to everyone on the HoodHype team that was with us. I found it impressive considering I've met bloggers (regrettably) who have bigger egos than this guy.

So much respect to K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, Mookie Jones, Jackie Chain, Dutch, Kamal, Johnny Shipes and the entire Cinematic team. You all are changing the game one city at a time and keeping hip-hop a respectable, entertaining art form. Thank you.

Listeners, readers, show fans, stay tuned, we still have performance footage for K.R.I.T., Freddie Gibbs, Smoke DZA and Jackie Chain to post (as well as interviews).
