Nick Grant’s 3-Part Freestyle Is Filled With Fiber For Your Mind (Video)

South Carolina native Nick Grant is an MC on a tear. Following February’s 88 mixtape, Nick has been consistently releasing potent music that carries Southern charms, without necessarily conforming to any style, especially those typically associated with emerging artists beneath the Mason-Dixon.

Lately, Grant has been out to prove he is mean with the freestyle flows. Appearing on Statik Selektah’s ShowOff Radio Show this past week, Nick locks into classic instrumentals by U.G.K., O.C., and others. Switching from a Three 6 Mafia-produced jam into a dusty Buckwild-laced loop from 1994, Nick never needs to change his style or his content. The artist, in three segmented freestyles, kicks the kind of truisms in his rhymes that are expected from the greats.  Although the delivery is not perfect—some of these lines appear to be off the dome, and nearly all of them say something meaningful.

Nick barely opens his eyes as he kicks these lines that apparently feature some external storytelling.
