Big K.R.I.T. was originally set to release his debut Live from the Underground on September 27th, but decided to push it back on his own terms. During an interview with WCGI’s DJ Moon Dawg (via FSD), the Def Jam signee revealed that the LP will arrive in January 2012 and that its delay was due to sample clearance issues.
“Live from the Underground will drop 2012, first quarter, next January. It originally was supposed to come out September 27th. I pushed it back because of sample clearances. I realized I’ve given away a lot of free music. It’s cool to sample anything you want when it’s free. Retail? They’re not having that,” he said. “So reaching out to people as far as sample clearances. There’s one feature I had the opportunity to try to get on the album. It is going down and I will not say who it is. Nobody will figure this out anyways. It’s an amazing feature. It’s crazy. I produced a lot of the stuff.”
