Big K.R.I.T., Killer Mike & Nick Grant Are Royalty In Rap And Life (Audio)
Atlanta MC Nick Grant turned heads last year with not one, but two of the strongest freestyles of the year. Grant put on dazzling lyrical displays for 5 minutes at a time, as he seemed to thrive on the newfound national attention. However, Grant also showed that he was about more than verbal gymnastics with heady songs like “Royalty,” his Cyhi The Prynce-assisted cut about the pride they and other Black men should take in coming from royal blood lines traced back to Africa.
Now, Grant updates the regal anthem and he adds Big K.R.I.T., the King Remembered In Time, and Killer Mike to the mix. Both K.R.I.T. and Mike stay true to the theme of the song, relaying the burdens of wearing the crown, and exhorting others to reclaim their thrones, respectively. As two of the more socially conscious and activist MCs in Hip-Hop, both are strong additions.
