Big K.R.I.T.’s debut Live from the Underground was originally slated to be released on September 27th, but it was pushed back. Now During an interview with 107.5 WCGI’s [twitter=DJMoonDawg]DJ MoonDawg[/twitter], Krit says to expect the album to released in January of 2012.

“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.”

As K.R.I.T continues, he explains that due to the push-back he had the chance to work with other artists to feature on the LP:

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.”
