BIG KLIT ENERGY

BIG KLIT ENERGY

"Big Klit has a flair for the dramatic. Her most popular music video—for a 2017 single called "Liar"—opens with a passed out man sitting on a bed unclothed, save for a towel, as BigKlit herself stands in the foreground, waving a chef's knife menacingly. She seemingly mangles his genitalia while scarfing a banana and castigating—in her off-kilter bark—liars, cheats, hypocrites, and the other varietals of awful men who dare darken her doorstep. Other artists write songs about the overwhelming pain and anger they feel when they're crossed; BigKlit just fantasizes about dismembering them."

Who.

Music

Big Klit - Liar

"There's a reason this one is the one that got the kids on TikTok memeing. It's not necessarily her most shocking song, or her most emotionally affecting, but it's probably her best—impossibly hooky in a way that a lot of her scream-rap contemporaries don't even begin to approach. There's something sing-songy, like a Mother Goose poem or a playground taunt, in the way she squelches out "Why you lyin' on your dick, lyin' on your dick." Menacing as it may be, it's the sort of song that gets embedded in your lizard brain, the one you'll end up absentmindedly humming in inappropriate places."

Big Klit - go crazy

"Psychosis features a trio of collaborations with the producer Nedarb, one of Lil Peep's close collaborators, and one of the architects of the broader set of sounds associated with the post-everything music people came to call SoundCloud rap. The best of his contributions comes on "Go Crazy," on which his fractured, bruising beat provides a jittery canvas on which BigKlit is able to meditate on the precarity of her own mental health. It's unsettling at points, like when she weighs the merits of jumping off a cliff, but she mostly sounds self-assured, confident in the ways she moves through the world. It probably shouldn't be surprising that it works so well—making bangers out of uncomfortable subject matter is what she does best."

Big Klit - fsu

"FSU," short for "fuck shit up," finds BigKlit in apocalypse mode, calling for the death of her enemies and the destruction of the whole world over a beat that sounds like a Nokia ringtone accompanied by a hand blender. Throughout the song, she advocates for unthinking violence, then taunts the cops who can't catch her as she burns down everything in her wake. It is pure tear the club up music, and the sort of song that makes people do things they might later regret."

Paper
"If you think you don't know BigKlit .... The abrasive pre-chorus to her hit song, "Liar," is nothing short of memorable — in fact, it's more like a slap in the face with a sucker punch to follow: "Fuck! You a pussy ass bitch/ Fuck you, your momma, and your kids!"

"For one thing, BigKlit doesn’t bother rapping smoothly, she shout-raps as aggressively as possible, straight up accusing men — rappers, f*ckboys, and dudes, in general — of “lyin’ on your dick,”

What.

"She wants to see just how far she can push listeners, rapping in this sandpapery squeal over beats meant for bruising sternums and blowing out speaker systems. One of her early moments of virality came in the form of a TikTok meme, in which clean-cut teens would accost their parents by rapping the lyrics of "Liar" at them—which provoked at least one mom to slap her child in the face."

Where.

But that isn't all BigKlit has on offer, she's covered a lot of ground in her short career. In between the screaming, the violence, and the bravado, she's also demonstrated a knack at more moving and honest songs—meditations on mortality and the lasting effects of trauma. Her music's more complicated than it first appears, so it's worth digging into a few of the songs that help you understand all sides the self-proclaimed "Queen of Hell."
