Although Nuk wrote his first rap at the age of 10, it was repeated plays of Mystikal’s Mind of Mystikal LP and artists like Andre 3000, Ludacris, and MJG that helped him cultivate his animated rhyme-style. After a two-year unfinished stint at Tallahassee Community College, Nuk Grissle’s attention shifted to street-money and recording music full-time. Despite opening for the largest hip-hop acts that came to Tallahassee, it wasn’t long before the hustle caught up and Federal Task Forces came down on his crew. Emerging from his legal situations relatively unscathed, Nuk began to approach music with a renewed sense of passion and soon found himself recording in Miami with super producer Jim Jonsin (T.I., Lil Wayne, Trick Daddy) in 2005. Witnessing Jonsin create future radio-smashes like Jamie Foxx’s “Unpredictable” and Twista’s “Girl Tonite”, Nuk Grissle learned that success was not only achievable, but realistic. Applying this attitude with Key Entertainment co-founders Bruce and Commercial Corey, Nuk began to make noise of his own with the 2009 song “Pretty Girl”, an ode to beautiful women that earned him fans, shows, and overall recognition. After linking up with rising Orlando superstar P.I. Bang in 2010 for the insanely-catchy “5 In The Morning”, Nuk Grissle and Key Entertainment pressed up 10,000 copies for a FL promo run with CSR Promotions.
Now an established name with a growing fan base, Nuk aims to go the extra mile for his listeners and explains that his music knows no limits: “I can do whatever I want with my music because I’m not trying to give you a persona. Good music ain’t dead. You can take time and give the people something extra- not just an album with 2 good songs!” Learning from music through every step of his life, Nuk Grissle is a name you can’t forget and a lyrical presence you will be sure to remember.
