Over airy production fueled by shimmering keys and finger-snaps, the critically applauded Walterboro, SC rapper pays homage and shows respect to the ladies in his life. His vivid rhymes and confessional bars offer up an empowering message to females and a sharp admission, “You like the closest thing to God, still we call you a bitch, Black Woman.” His words practically fall into a robust vocal crescendo from Barthe whose powerhouse pipes reach the heavens. Ultimately, he turns stereotypical hip-hop convention on its head with this female-centric anthem.
If “Black Woman” offers any indication, Dreamin’ Out Loud represents a major evolution for Grant. He already teased the tape with a pair of scorching singles—“96 Bulls” and “The Switch Up” [feat. Yo Gotti]. Upon properly announcing the project on his social media accounts this week, Vibe, HipHopDX, and more immediately fueled excitement. Be on the lookout for the full tracklisting reveal very soon.
Committed to the artform and proficient with every bar, Grant has positioned himself to lead a hip-hop renaissance.
His dream is about to come true in a big way…
Growing up in the tiny town of Walterboro, SC, Nick Grant found a window to a much bigger world through hip-hop as a kid. He obsessed over classics by Jay-Z, 2 Pac, Nas, OutKast, and A Tribe Called Quest, while writing countless rhymes of his own. In 2014, he inked a deal with Culture Republic—run by music industry veterans Jason Geter, Chaka Zulu and Bernard Parks, Jr. February 2016 saw him unleash his ‘88 mixtape featuring collaborations with the likes of Killer Mike and Big K.R.I.T. Soon, he was garnering praise from Vibe, XXL, Pigeons and Planes, and more in addition to lighting up the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher as well as Funk Master Flex’s Hot 97 radio show and Sway in the Morning.
On 2017’s Return of the Cool, Grant harked back to rap’s revolutionary era over two decades ago, while bringing a decidedly modern heat of his own with tracks like “Get Up,” “Bouncin’,” and “Luxury Vintage Rap.” He made his late-night television debut on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and partnered up with both Sprite and Foot Action. Apple Music touted him as part of its “Artist of the Week” program, and was featured in Entertainment Weekly’s “Artist to Watch” in 2017, while BET followed him in its Prelude documentary. Now, he’s ready to leave an indelible on rap history imprinted by every flow.
