Sharing new music with the world is not only my passion, it’s my job. And South Carolina’s Nick Grant is one of the budding MCs keeping me busy. Today (Jan. 25), the slick flowing spitta’ links with hip-hop vets, Killer Mike and Big K.R.I.T. for the “Royalty (Remix).”
Here, over a smooth backdrop provided by Damon Thomas for Beats In My Backpack, the three kings spew that get-mentally-lifted ish forth — while saluting forefathers like Patrice Lumumba, Malcolm X and the gods of Egypt. Plus, Killer, K.R.I.T, and Grant celebrate their deeply rooted Black, royal bloodline on wax. Not to sound too preachy, the three amigos even throw in a few bars to remind listeners of their bravado on the mic.
Also, be on the lookout for Grant’s ’88 mixtape, slated for a Feb. 2nd release. Until then, spin “Royalty (Remix)” below.
