IAA:  What is your music background?

NICKY GRAMS:  I started doing hip-hop over a decade ago . I recorded  my first record in 2006 on a track called “Like That” with EMS.  After that, I released a hard copy album  titled “Here Now”. Lately I have been performing locally and abroad. Recently I was at SXSW, and was billed at Lucky Lounge with Coast 2 Coast mixtapes. Now, I’m just about to release my #Teamswagship mix-bum on Coast 2 Coast this summer. It’s going to be CRAZY!

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music

NICKY GRAMS:  I wrote my first song around the age of two. Hip-hop has been my outlet. I love when people really listen to me. I think everybody wants to be heard. I’m just blessed that people are so receptive to my music.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

NICKY GRAMS:  Coming from more of a freestyle/ battle rap background my music tends to swing like that on a lot of records. I really want to expand to making feel good music. Feel good music really stands out,  and everyone can relate to it.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

NICKY GRAMS:  I do music my way, and if people relate to it, that’s cool. I would say that females like my music a little more than guys do

IAA:  Who are your musical influences

NICKY GRAMS:  My parents were my first influence, being that they were in a rock band while I my mom was pregnant with me.  I also am influenced by Notorious B.I.G, Wu Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Jay-Z, Tupac, Lost Boyz, and many more. When I moved to the twin cities in 2000 I started listening to Roots, Mos Def, Kweli, Atmosphere, and other local talents. Basically the whole TC hip hop scene paved a way for me.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

NICKY GRAMS:  My music isn’t something that can be put into a box. I also have a lot of different genres of music on my current project. A variety of people are going to feel my music.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

NICKY GRAMS:  My style, my songwriting, and my stage presence makes me unique. People appreciate a talented songwriter who is also a good performer

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working ?

NICKY GRAMS:  I’m currently focused on putting the finishing touches on my current project “#Teamswagship” due this summer. I will also be shooting videos for the for some of the tracks.  I will be working on my album and also touring.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

NICKY GRAMS:  10 years I want to make my mark on the music industry. Ultimately I want my music to be so good that people are fans of my music from my first album to the last.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

  4. Excellent interview, Nicky!! Nice to hear that background and know how much you put into this. Hard work & persistent dedication will take your mad talent as far as you want it to go!!

  5. NICKY MUTHA FUQQIN GRAMS…NUFF SAID. I have personally seen Nick Grams do his thing a few times but my fondest memory is a show at the Kitty Kat Klub. The sound guy hit the wall and had a malufunction. Most a fake MCEE would have folded and canceled his set…not Nick Grams…NICK GRAMS FREESTYLED A 20min. set and spit some of the dopest shit I ever heard off the brain. I asked him, that’s was a freestyle right?” “Do you remember any of that cause that’s Anthrax. He said nope, I blacked out fam. I saw you rockin wit me and I appreciate the love.” I asked round and only a few heads caught that the whole set was oof the dome….NICKY MUTHA FUQQIN GRAMS

  6. I’ve seen people come and go over time but I always wanted to see Nicky. Nick’s love and respect for the music always stood out to me. I respect an artist who works within traditional hip hop process but incorporates their own style. Nicky did that and is taking it further which is rare and the fans recognize that in him.I’m excited for Nick G because he deserves it and it’s nice to see him recognized by the fans.

  7. I have listened to the music you have out there and really like it. I am excited to hear more. I will be at a show soon:) Keep up the amazing work.
