BIG K.R.I.T. OPENS UP ABOUT WHAT HE DOES IN HIS SPARE TIME, HIS APOLOGY TO HIS FATHER, DEPRESSION, SELF-CARE AND MORE
In support of “Pick Yourself Up” off the 2-song Double Down EP, released on December 7th, Big K.R.I.T. opens up about what he does in his spare time, his apology to his father, depression, self-care and how he picks himself up, during the “Pick Yourself Up and Silence The Shame” fireside chat with Shanti Das at the Gathering Spot in Atlanta, GA. The event was hosted by Martell on Thursday, December 6th.
In front of an audience of 250 fans, which reached capacity in 2 hours upon its announcement 2 days prior, fans enjoyed signature drinks provided by Martell which were named in support of Big K.R.I.T.’s surprise musical releases: “Glorious,” “Look What I Got,” “Higher” and the event’s inspiration “Pick Yourself Up.”
Big K.R.I.T. was surprised by the unexpected attendance of his 9th grade english teacher, who Big K.Ri.T. immediately jumps off the podium to hug, was the first to pop up.
Big K.R.I.T. and Shanti Das went on to take questions by the rest of the audience who would straight out recite his lyrics to him, spoke how his songs “got [them] through” and asked questions about inspiration behind songs such as “Soul Food” which was inspired by the passing of his grandmother.
