Nick Grant has a way with words. Or, perhaps it’s more fitting, considering his occupation, to label him a gifted lyricist.
By any measure, the Culture Republic/Epic recording artist is among the most potent rappers alive right now currently spitting 16's. NG is a metaphoric representation of MC. And while that’s been evident since his arrival with 2016’s 88 mixtape and his critically-acclaimed debut project, Return of the Cool, the South Carolina native looks to build on his reputation for craft and much more with his sophomore collection, Dreamin’ Out Loud. “I grew to learn life is about experiences,” Grant says about his new collection. “Everything that I created I was inspired by something, from going on tour with Nas, to having conversations with different people that I love or respect. Things that I experienced opened the door to create when inspired or led me through something to talk about it. When you have a Biggie or André 3000, that’s when you can listen to something from 20 years ago and you just get it,” he says. “I want to be an artist like that. Able to give you that timeless, classic feeling. I came from nothing and I made something out of it,” he continues. “I want to show anyone that’s listening that anything is possible. I’m just an everyday person with a talent that God gave me. And I’ll continue to use it as long as people want to hear it.” From Dreamin’ to reality.
