Nyck Caution Shares Heartfelt Single, “December 24th” ft. Elbee Thrie of Phony Ppl
Delivering evocative lyrics with an ice-cold demeanor, Brooklyn rapper Nyck Caution is preparing to make the leap. Today, the Pro Era rapper shares the opening track from his upcoming full-length, Anywhere But Here. Aptly titled for the release date and his father’s birthday, “December 24th” is a song about grieving the recent loss of his father, yet using the hardship as a jumping point to push himself further on his musical journey. “Your pops would’ve turned in his grave if he saw that you gave up, that’s not how the Caution was bred.” Bringing Elbee Thrie (of Phony Ppl) along for the ride with a soulful, warming hook, complete with smooth, ethereal production from Erick The Architect, the song sets the tone for the remainder of the project with Nyck’s lyrical ability and storytelling prowess on full display.
