Big K.R.I.T.
Club Red, Tempe
May 24, 2013

The dim-lit venue suddenly became bright and the crowd awoke as the so-called "underground king" stormed on stage. With his southern hospitality accenting his country slang, Big K.R.I.T. expressed genuine love to his fans the moment he ran out from back stage.

Leading up to K.R.I.T.'s dramatic entrance, a subdued crowd was smoking copious amounts of weed to get through the first hour of local acts. By the time I'd arrived, sexy promo girls were giving away paraphernalia to the crowd. I would have made it up to the stage to grab some for myself, but I ended up finding a nearby booth selling grinders and CDs all labeled with a bold-type hash tag, "#NUGLIFEMERCH."
