Release date: June 2012
Live from the Underground is the debut studio album by American rapper, writer, and producer Big K.R.I.T, released on June 5, 2012 on Def Jam. Big K.R.I.T. and Sha Money XL are the album's executive producers.
"Man, 'cause I'm still underground at heart," K.R.I.T. told MTV News when asked about his debut's title. "At the end of the day, the type of music that I make, the type of sound I'm trying to create, is definitely being underground and Southern hip-hop. A lot of people didn't know I was signed to Def Jam when I dropped 'Return of 4Eva.' I signed to Def Jam June of last year. So it's been a process of working, grinding, proving myself, and just kind of showing people I'm not going to change just because I'm signed to a major."
