BIG K.R.I.T. Tour 2022 : Justin Scott (born 26 August 1968) also known as Big K.R.I.T. is a Hip-Hop recording artist and record producer, originally from Meridian, Mississippi, USA.
Before hitting the big time, Big K.R.I.T, grew up with his family in the Deep South, where he had his first taste as a musical performer, in the local church choir. He quickly turned his attentions to poetry, and then rap, and by the age of 14 he was recording his bars over other artists songs and before long he began producing his own beats too, under the moniker “Kritikal”.

After graduating high school, and changing his name to Big K.R.I.T, which stands for “King Remembered In Time”, he began to make his mark as a well-known rapper through various mixtape releases online and guest featured tracks from around 2005, around this time he was approached by Young Jeezy’s record label, CTE Entertainment, but a deal could not be agreed.
After gathering buzz on the blogosphere and drawing comparisons to legendary rappers from the south of the US, such as T.I. and Pimp C, in 2010 he gained breakthrough recognition with his back-to-back mixtapes, “K.R.I.T. Wuz Here” and “Returnof4eva.” For both tapes, many lauded K.R.I.T, for his now recognisable laid back flow, lyrical variety, and his southern-rap production style, which would all become staples of his music in future projects.
Following on from the rave reviews, and his inclusion on the much coveted XXL MAgazine “Freshman of 2011” Cover, K.R.I.T was quickly snapped up by hip-hop heavyweight record label, Def Jam Recordings. Since then the MC has gone on to release further mixtapes and albums.
K.R.I.T has collaborated with a variety of rappers in the industry, from T.I. and Curren$y, to Wiz Khalifia, with whom he toured with as the opening act on his US “Wake & Bake Tour.”
