Nick Grant offers his own version of Solange’s chart-topping A Seat at the Table album with his +One project.
The four-track mixtape remakes popular cuts “Don’t Touch My Hair,” “Mad,” “Cranes in the Sky” and “For Us By Us” to share the perspective of a young black man.
“I was extremely inspired by Solange’s project that it forced me to write,” Grant says via press release. “It enabled me to dig deeper within myself and become a more personal artist. I connected with her words and felt her emotions. Hopefully, my spin on the music will do the same for somebody else.”
The Atlanta-based MC is now preparing his debut album, Return of the Cool, which he is planning to drop this winter.
Grant caught the attention of the nation a year ago with an ill freestyle on Sway in the Morning. He has since appeared on Funkmaster Flex’s show and performed in a BET Hip Hop Awards cypher with Kent Jones at Don Q.
