Big K.R.I.T. Speaks On His Departure From Def Jam

Posted By on October 13, 2016

Big K.R.I.T. hit Sway’s Universe and dropped a hell of a freestyle ( no surprise there). Before he hit the mic, Krit spoke to Sway about his departure from Def Jam and how he felt it was time for him to become independent.

“When you young all you want to do is be on the radio and all you want to do is get a contract, get a deal,” Young Krizzle says. “But once you get those things, you normally don’t realize what’s next. The next step. Me, I had the kind of team and people around me that didn’t mind telling me the game. I graduated from being just a rapper to understanding production and understanding my worth and how those are separate entities. And I graduated from that to MULTI, the branding of such. And then becoming a businessman. Now, understanding my worth, partnerships, not necessarily just signing as a rapper because I bring more to the table. I know how to direct the artist to the right records, how to produce, put them in the right space and help them create their narrative and be comfortable with it.”
