B.J. the Chicago Kid has been getting a lot of attention through his single “Church,” which features Chance the Rapper. While the track is highlighted by B.J.’s suave and seductive style of crooning, he is also a skilled wordsmith with an infectious hip-hop flow. He’ll be performing tracks from his upcoming release, “In My Mind.”
Def Jam recording artist Big K.R.I.T. is bringing his urban sounds from Meridian, Mississippi. This rapper gained popularity through mixtape distribution. Eventually, K.R.I.T. kindled his reputation on the national scene through guest appearances on Curren$y’s album “Pilot Talk” and Wiz Khalifa’s release “Kush & Orange Juice.”
Hip-hop fans quickly fell in love with K.R.I.T.’s flawless verbal talents that can shift from smooth to rapid-fire in an instant. K.R.I.T.’s sophomore effort “Caddilactica” propelled into the No. 1 position on Billboard’s “U.S. Top R&B/Hip-Hop” chart as well as the “Billboard 200.” He recently surprised fans with his mixtape release “It’s Better This Way,” which features artists such as Warren G and Ludacris.
