    The extent of K.R.I.T.'s achievement on his proper debut can be lost in the consistency of his output, but it is a stirring triumph nonetheless.

    Live From the Underground is the best distillation of the South since OutKast's rule-rewriting heyday.

    Live from the Underground is the best Southern rap record since Big Boi's Sir Lucious Left Foot dropped two summers ago.

    The album is brimming with peerless content and an enlivened ambience that is manifested from his spoken word introduction to his grandmother's parting words on the closing track.

    All things considered, Young Krizzle delivers.

    This album is being criminally under rated by critics and fans across the internet, the production sonic genius, every single instrument is used to perfection and the whole thing comes together beautifully, after a day or two of listening I would have put it on par with R4 but after a solid week it's now surpassed even that, you really need to take time and listen to every note, line and key. I will be playing this album for years to come and I also have no doubt he will go on to create even better LP's. Full Review »

    Simply incredible. I haven't heard an album with this amount replay value in a real long time, and that goes across all genres. This masterful debut reminds me of other notable first albums by rap artists, like Dr. Dre's The Chronic and Notorious B.I.G's Ready To Die, the effort displayed on this record by K.R.I.T is irrefutable, and a testament to the fact that there isn't harder working rapper in the game. This record goes into my collection alongside all of my other rap favorites, and will definitely come to define my Summer. 10/10 because I wish all of my favorite rap artists put out music on this level.

    the beats are great, but need less poppy sounds at times. the first few songs are gold, while the last few are hit or miss. only listen if you're a fan of krit Full Review »
