Nick Grant, the MC by way of Walterboro, South Carolina, has a true way with words as his passion for rapping and freestyling has opened many doors. From Dreamin’ to reality, Nick continues to prove himself as one of our time’s greatest lyricists. The Culture Republic/Epic recording artist is undeniably among the most potent rappers out at the moment.

Consistently releasing classic and timeless projects such as his 2016 ‘88′ mixtape and his critically-acclaimed debut album, Return of the Cool, the recording artist plans to continue to drop heat 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’m rapping with a chip on my shoulder,” Grant explains. “This go round I’m in a place where I don’t want people to forget who I am. I want to compete.”

Dreamin’ Out Loud centerpiece “Father Figure” features a posthumous conversation Grant has with his father, taking on both personas—pop and progeny—with the slow-burning “The Funeral” as an addendum.

“It was a conversation I wanted to have with him but ego wouldn’t allow me to have it,” Grant shares. “We had a rocky relationship but also, in a sense, he was someone that I wanted to be. This is your father, someone that you look up and have an undying love for.

“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.”

Dreamin’ Out Loud can pierce today’s ears and still resonate with tomorrow’s listeners.
