The Break Presents: Nick Pratt

Standout: “Who Want What/Break A Bitch Down (Freestyle)”

Also Check Out: “Mac & Me” featuring Mac Miller

And: “Comin Dyne Clean”

Name: Nick Pratt

Age: 24

Reppin’: “Funkytown” Fort Worth, TX

My style and/or skills have been compared to: I’ve heard a bunch of different names like Phonte, Killer Mike, Ludacris (when I’m rapping fast), and the grey area between J. Cole and Big K.R.I.T. (that was literally the description).

My standout records and/or moments have been: My standout records would have to be “Eyes On The Hills” (Prod. Cassius G) “Last Call” (Prod. T-Riff), “Comin Dyne Clean” (Prod. K-Salaam & Beatnick), and “Mac & Me” feat. Mac Miller (Prod. Beewirks).

I’m gonna change the game by: Showing another side of Texas Hip-Hop and adding to that new, young wave of emerging artist from out here. Breaking heavy bass and boom-bap alike with my humor, wit, wordplay, and various deliveries.

I’d Like to Work With: All of those folks that I grew up listening to and loving man. Bun B, Outkast, Organized Noize, Mannie Fresh, Pharrell, Timbaland, DJ Premier, Q-Tip, OG Ron C, Chamillionaire, Twista, Babyface, Stevie Wonder, Raphael Saddiq, Yasim Bey (Mos Def), Erykah Badu, Jay Electronica, Black Thought, 8Ball & MJG, Phonte, Z-Ro, David Banner, Royce Da 5’9”, Jean Grae (my future ex-wife), T.I., man the list is tooo long.

My goal in hip-hop is: Is to be great. More than great. Timeless. Hip-Hop is just now seeing its veterans get old. Our Bruce Springsteen’s have yet to hit that age marker where they’ve been completely immortalized. I’m trying to hit that mark.

I’m gonna be the next: I’m not trying to be the next anybody, but I will be the first, last, and best me y’all will ever see.
