Since Kanye West released ‘Donda 2’ in 2022, his fans have patiently waited for the next big thing from the 24-time Grammy winner. While he works on it, stories of his antics from across the globe have constantly made headlines. Meanwhile, the new album is as much shrouded in mystery as the rapper’s recent controversial affairs. However, that does not stop his fans and admirers from appreciating his previous works from his decades-long career. 

Recently, Nick Grant, who considers Kanye West a major influence on his rap among other artists, gave tribute to an old track of West’s.

Earlier this week, the ‘Return of the Cool’ singer appeared on an episode of Justin Credible’s Freestyle Series on the Power 106 Los Angeles radio show. In it, he chose to freestyle over the beats of Kanye West’s ‘Devil in a New Dress’. The song was among the many fan-favorite hits from the ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ album that entered the Billboard Hot 200 in July. In Grant’s rendition, the verses were obviously switched up but still held the charm of the OG beat from West’s original. 

The series, which has also seen performances by J Cole and 6LACK features freestyles from various budding and established artists. Whereas for Grant, it was the perfect opportunity to promote his newly released ‘Sunday Dinner’ album. Meanwhile, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ could not have resurfaced at a better time. After Nick Grant, the ‘Graduation’ rapper might revive it soon too!
