Though Critically Acclaimed, The Love Wasn’t Universal.
New Yorkers can be cold blooded. Big K.R.I.T. learned this the hard way back in 2010 when he tried to perform his banger “Country Shit” at the Highline Ballroom. The crowd, who was there to see New York-friendly artists like Joel Ortiz and Jay Electronica, ruthlessly booed him off the stage. K.R.I.T. took it pretty well though, and two years later the rapper got the ultimate payback. He came back to the Highline Ballroom and performed in front of a sold-out crowd.
