    Mr Gramn, I am know diffrent in person. most of the people i know and socialize with all have the same views and opinions. and to answer your question, you would get my honest opinion if you asked a question, and if you are insinuating what i think you are, as long as i was not " in fear for my life" you would go home for supper that night not liking me very much.everyone is entitled to their opinion and just because somthing seems wrong because political correctness says so doesnt mean its not correct. voices should not be surpressed. the truth is not always nice, and when freedom of speech is bent and limited you only hear one side. thats what Germany did in the late 30's. go figure. and they call conservitives nazis

    Its wonderful that Big K.R.I.T./ Justin Scott is not forgetting where he came from!!! He is showing love to his hometown and people that supported him before the fame!!! That shows true character and that he was raised right!! Only a good person at heart would remember the people and place that supported him before they even knew he was even going to for sure make it!!! I admire this young man! Justin, keep God first no matter what and you will continue to be successful! God bless you!!!

        I didn't see where he said anything pertaining to the guy being black. Geez, people always trying to make things about race.

    Why is this even news? Can't we promote something like education instead of a dead end dream where every one becomes a rapper? This is ridiculous. It's a wonder our state is in the bottom of education and top of pregnancy. People and parents value the wrong things.

      FIRST OF ALL, HE IS EDUCATED.. HE MANAGED TO NOT ONLY GET HIS EDUCATION, BUT HE FOLLOWED HIS DREAM ALSO. SO MAYBE YOU'RE THE REASON THAT MISSISSIPPI'S THE BOTTOM OF EVERYTHING!!

    last time the dollar general got robbed. store owners need to shut down after dark cause crime is gonna go up again. nothing good comes from rap music. everyone posted about the crime that was to come the last time and when it happened nobody could comment to say told ya so. anyone who says rap is good needs to ask themselves if they would play it for Jesus if he came to their house for dinner. i downloaded a song from big krit just to see and it is racial and foul, making fun of country folks.

      Fools like you should and need to made fun of. People of your ilk are the reasons MS has remained and will continue to remain on the bottom. The world will be a better place when narow-minded ignoramuses begin to fade away.

        Not all rap is bad but you kind of have to listen to the words "Big Krit" puts in his rap. So, it's ignoramuses like you that apparently can't see that a southern rapper makes fun the people from where is he's from. And him being racist and people that are behind someone like that, are the reason MS has remained the way it is.

          It's usually the racist person that tries to accuse a person of that which THEY are afflicted with.Hate to face the truth and living in denial I feel. What have you done to make MS better? I wonder what have you been deprived of because of racism.
