Justin Scott aka Big K.R.I.T. is a rapper/producer hailing from Meridian, Mississippi. A member of the 2011 XXL Freshmen class, K.R.I.T. brings the flavor of the South along with passion and plenty of bass.

Take a listen and be sure to turn up that sub!

This week I’m sticking to the blue and orange theme that I went with in last week’s Braided Top Shooter. I love the triangle top string. I love the way it looks. I love the way it keeps the ball from hitting plastic and I love the fact that you get to use two different colored top strings to customize your pocket a bit. This week I decided to get a little tricky with what I am calling the Two Triangle Top String. The Two Triangle Top String is essentially the same thing as a triangle top string.
