BIG K.R.I.T. (US)
Sunday 08.07.12 - 17:00 - Cosmopol
Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. has been buzzing around the hip hop underground scene for some years, but it is only now that this extremely talented producer and rapper is about to break through.
His critically acclaimed mixtape Return Of 4eva is hip hop in the tradition of the Southern states in the 90s: filled with easy-flowing soul, organic sensations and plenty of parallels to Outkast and Underground Kingz.
Chicks and cars are obvious themes in hip hop, a genre favouring self-assertion rather than self-hatred. To that, Big K.R.I.T. has added social consciousness, self-irony, a sharp tongue and a brilliant flow, features increasing the pleasure of this semi-nostalgic hip hop.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
