Rapper Nick Grant is on a mission to prove his lyrical prowess, and he chose a Kanye West instrumental as his canvas to convey this message in anticipation of his latest album release.
During an appearance on Justin Credible’s Freestyle Series earlier this week, the South Carolina-based MC delivered a powerful freestyle over Kanye West’s “Devil in a New Dress” beat, originally featured on West’s 2010 album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”
In his freestyle, Grant dropped notable lines, including, “Somebody tell Hov he should call / I got a text from Kendrick saying, ‘N-gga, we gon’ spar’ / Even on career day I couldn’t be like y’all / The world is a ghetto, n-gga, we ’bout war.”
On September 22, Nick Grant released his fourth studio album, titled “SUNDAY DINNER.” The album comprises 16 tracks, each packed with Grant’s signature lyrical prowess. It features collaborations with artists like Ransom, Tweet, and Uncle Chucc, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
Before the album’s release, Grant unveiled two singles, “SINCE ELEMENTARY” and “CATCH THIS FADE.” Additionally, he dropped a short track accompanied by a music video titled “Witsell Street,” which did not make it onto the final album tracklist.
According to a press release, “SUNDAY DINNER” serves as a musical tapestry woven with personal experiences from Nick Grant’s upbringing in South Carolina. Raised by his grandmother and the community, attending church every Sunday was a requirement in their household.
Following church, the entire family would gather at Grant’s grandmother’s house, where he encountered a diverse array of people who left a profound impact on his life, worldview, and the person he would become. These individuals included cousins who attended college and others who did not, a mother struggling with addiction, a father who was intermittently present in his life, and the challenges faced in their neighborhood projects.
