I Got This
New Big K.R.I.T video for I Got This premiered yesterday on MTV 2's Sucker Free Sunday. Really innovative, I love to see that the music industry is headed towards visual dynamics once again. It's a new twist on the classic "hometown revisited" concept. K.R.I.T always has the southern hip hop style that we love, this time meshed with a little bit of Big Poppa swagger. Oh, and you can never forget the candy paint.
Here's a description of the numbers from the video, as explained on his website:
No. 1: Big Sant. He is Big K.R.I.T.’s long time friend and is also a solo artist on K.R.I.T.’s Mult-Alumni record label. He too is a native of Meridian, MS
No. 2: Big K.R.I.T.’s childhood home in Meridian, MS
No. 3: Police escorts that followed Big K.R.I.T as he drove around his hometown during the video shoot.
No. 4: Big K.R.I.T.’s tattoo of the word Mississippi. It is a dedication to his home state. The tattoo was done by world renowned artist Miya Bailey.
