    Big K.R.I.T. lands himself a strong debut for his sophomore effort Cadillactica, sliding into the Billboard 200's top 5 at #5.

Live From The Underground did 41,000. That's definitely a respectable starting place for a rapper who refused...

On his way through the airport today, he even laughed at a question regarding whether he would oil himself up for a shoot, Kim-style, before actually giving the reporters an exclusive on his latest fashion ventures.

We've seen Chicago singer's Mustard-assisted jam "Don't Tell Em" rise up the charts, peaking at number 6 on the Hot 100, but seemingly nothing has come of the surprise success, with no release date in sight, as well as no video for the hit -- which is pretty much unheard of for a song with such momentum. On top of that, a strange...
