After kicking off 2017 with The Return of the Cool, Nick Grant has continued to impress with a serious knack for murdering any and every mic that’s placed in front of him.
From bodying the LA Leakers (twice) and melting Raekwon’s “Ice Cream” during a Tim Westwood crib session to putting on a Tiny Desk concert for NPR, Grant stayed getting busy while fans clamored for a new project.
Thankfully, the time has arrived, and the South Carolina emcee is Dreamin’ Out Loud with a new mixtape.
“Love to everyone that’s been down since the journey started,” Nick said on IG. “It’s been a blessing to be able to put out projects. Been dreaming of this since I started writing rhymes and hanging up hip hop greats on my bedroom wall. I’m growing to learn that money is cool but having a voice that could help preserve the culture is better. I just want to compete and contribute. God willing, the words on this mixtape inspire the people that listen.”
Arriving at 14 tracks, led by the previously-released “96 Bulls,” “The Switch Up” with Yo Gotti, and the empowering “Black Woman” with Stacy Barthe, Dreamin’ Out Loud also boasts appearances from DRAM, DJ Khaled, Bhess, and Sonyae Elise. But we all know Nick Grant is the star here and, as expected, he shines bright throughout.
