Nick Grant Shows Why The Future Of Hip-Hop Is Far From Mumble Rap (Video)
Last year, Nick Grant made an appearance on the Sway In The Morning show and kicked one of the best freestyles of the year, excluding nobody. He earned his spot after participating in a cypher with CyHi The Prynce, one of the most respected lyricists in the game, and shining brightly. Since then, the MC has released several singles and a mixtape that have only bolstered his standing.
It should come as no surprise then, that as Grant guests on Funkmaster Flex’s freestyle series, he would once again contend for one of the year’s best verses. Fresh off his appearance in the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher, Grant seems unchanged by the experience, and as hungry as ever. Even with Flex’s interjections, throughout, he maintains his composure and raps relentlessly.
Though this is far from mumble rap, it will require several rewinds to catch everything Grant is saying, as the double entendres abound. One thing is for certain, however, lyricism in Hip-Hop is not a thing of the past. In fact, its future is as bright as it’s ever been.
