Why Big K.R.I.T Is Not Popular (but should be)

A king remembered in time. Big K.R.I.T (Justin Scott) is a rapper and producer from Meridian, MS with over ten mixtapes and three albums already under his belt. From his beginnings with his first mixtape See Me On Top released in 2005 to his latest installment to his discography, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, Big K.R.I.T has displayed a wide range of vocal sonic talent with songs like Layup and Big Bank in the same tracklist. Big K.R.I.T has the aggression and finesse needed to make hits upon hits, this begs the question, why has no one heard of Big K.R.I.T?

To be sure, people have heard of Big K.R.I.T, he has cosigns from other contemporary artists like B.o.B, Ludacris, and Wiz Khalifa, but with a lack of radio play or features from big-name artists like Drake, Travis Scott, and Kanye West, there must be a reason why an otherwise talented artist has not burst into the mainstream.

The answer lies in the examination of mainstream music as it stands. Southern Hip-Hop, specifically Trap music, has proliferated throughout all forms of music, Trap is the zeitgeist. While Big K.R.I.T does take influences from historically popular artists and contemporary artists alike, his style of rap and production is all his own. Big K.R.I.T has created a path all his own. This path, unfortunately, does come with its own trials and tribulations, and because of this, fans do not see the growth and popularization they would hope to see.
