Revolution, Fort Lauderdale

Better than: Your friendly, neighborhood trap boy's latest mixtape

The foot was on the gas, and the artist who wants to be known as a "king remembered in time" didn't let up on the pedal all night long. For the nearly sold out crowd at Revolution Live, Big K.R.I.T. didn't waste time rushing from behind the curtains and pacing from end to end, starting off his set with "Return of Forever," the first track from the critically acclaimed K.R.I.T. Wuz Here mixtape. Assisted by his hype man Big Sant, K.R.I.T. pulled off his first two effortlessly before letting Sant shine with his contribution. 

Showing

no signs of wearing down after consecutive trunk-friendly bangers "R4

Theme Song," "Just Touched Down" and "Sookie Now," K.R.I.T. didn't miss

a beat. With a flow reminiscent of the late UGK rapper Pimp C, he invited the

audience to travel back in time with him in his "Time Machine."

Audience, fully cooperative, continued to take a ride as they circled

their hands in the air as if they were turning a steering wheel with

K.R.I.T. for the ride around anthem, "Rotation," leaving the end hook

being said acappella. 

One

break and a search for the drinkers and smokers later, K.R.I.T. eased in

with the mellow tune "Moons and Stars," only to follow through with the

mixtape hit "Glasshouse" and "Made Alot" with partner Big Sant. With

middle fingers collaging the room, showing how much they just didn't

give a fuck along with K.R.I.T., they continued with a night of karaoke

per say as "Children Of The World" dropped, leaving K.R.I.T. to sound

like a feature. 

With

a shout out to Pimp C, K.R.I.T. began to perform a fan favorite

"Hometown Hero," and then followed by his breakout hit "Country Shit,"

with the DJ mixing the first half of the second verse with fellow the

Mississippi native David Banner's "Like a Pimp." Showing his love for

the fans, the performer jumped from off the stage and interacted with

the audience as he continued.  

No

better way to slow down the party than the honest, in depth "The Vent"

taking no less than 20 seconds into the song for the audience to become

silent, with a lingering sound of fans reciting the words underneath

their breath. It came to a solid ending with the new track "Money On The

Floor" featuring Eightball & MJG and 2 Chainz. 

Critic's Notebook

The Crowd: Cool guys wearing the latest snap back hats, a.k.a. one size fits all. 

Personal Bias: Feels good to listen to some good ol' Southern Hip-Hop that isn't drowned in sizzurp.
