Nick Grant is redefining the landscape of Hip Hop with the lyrical dexterity to influence multiple generations to come. He’s part of that rare and elite breed of artists that can deliver a message as well as make timeless music. Born and raised in Walterboro, South Carolina, Nick always rhymed with complexity and maturity beyond his years, a direct result of hearing the music of his grandparents and older siblings. He gravitated towards the sounds of Nas, Biggie, Pac, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Outkast, Scarface, Snoop, 2Pac, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and D’Angelo. Nick and his family relocated to Atlanta, GA as he was entering 9th grade. Upon his arrival he immediately threw himself into the rap ring and spent years perfecting his craft. Signed to multi-media agency Culture Republic, it's principals include entertainment moguls Jason Geter (TI, Travis Scott), Chaka Zulu (Ludacris) and Bernard Parks, Jr. (Cee-Lo, Goodie Mob).
After a succession of epic freestyles on Sway In The Morning followed by introspective records like “Gold Chains,” “Dead Poet Society” and “The Jungle,” Nick formally introduced himself on his debut mixtape, ‘88. Killer Mike, Big K.R.I.T., Young Dro, BJ The Chicago Kid and Stacy Barthe make appearances. With help from an in-house production team consisting of Dominic Gordon, ‘88, brings a new level of conceptual sophistication to HipHop. Praised for his clever bars well documented by multiple media outlets, tastemakers and fans, Nick’s rapid rise has been earned over time.
