NicX is dropping a project, Tryna Get Home, in December. The Atlanta rapper has been pretty quiet this year while he’s put the project together, but he returns today with “Take It.”
The song is about accepting the fact there are other rappers in his age group who just simply aren’t as good as him, so he has to take on the responsibility of taking them out. The video follows suit, as he acts like a hitman taking our various competition in the days before a show.
“I was working two jobs at the time in Atlanta,” he told The FADER, “and I was stressed about it and also stressed about not having enough good music to listen to because my favorite artists weren’t dropping any or they were trying to make music that catered to what others were making. So I decided to make something that would take the torch from them. The video showcases a whole new class of music creators and how we are claiming territory from the old guard.”
