We at the DopeHouse have come to gravitate toward Nick Grant for his refreshingly slick bars — but much of the music has boiled down to just that: raps. (This isn’t a bad thing at all. Fans will eventually come for the bars if they’re poignant and there.) But his newest tune, “Get Up,” will pull the rapper closer toward a mainstream audience. (Again, not a bad thing.)
The song sounds like it’d fit in the opening credits of a Spike Lee movie from the 90s — while the characters are getting introduced in the beginning-of-the-movie routine. And I have a feeling once I dive into The Get Down, “Get Up” will sound like it should be on the show’s soundtrack.
