Channeling his hip-hop forebears, Walterboro, South Carolina rapper Nick Grant carried the old-school into the 2010s with his gift for storytelling and tight delivery. Grant opted to focus on socially conscious rhymes and packed verses buoyed by production that favored golden age-style sampling. Backed by Grand Hustle Records, his 2016 mixtape '88 featured his dense bars and classic jazz and R&B samples, as well as guest appearances by Killer Mike, Big K.R.I.T., and BJ the Chicago Kid. Later that year, he released a four-song EP, A Seat at the Table Plus One, inspired by Solange. In 2017, Grant issued his official debut full-length, Return of the Cool, which broke into the Top 30 of the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
