Nyck Caution Returns With Solo Project "Anywhere But Here" (Interview)

Since his last solo outing in 2016, Nyck Caution has been keeping himself extremely busy. In 2017 he teamed up with fellow Pro Era rapper Kirk Knight for their “Nyck @ Knight” project and then of course joining a plethora of rappers including Flatbush Zombies, Joey Bada$$ + more for the Beast Coast collective “Escape From New York” project. Now for the first time since 2016 Nyck Caution is back with a new project. “Anywhere But Here” serves as a story of the past four years of the Brooklyn rapper's life and also serves as a way to memorialize his father who passed away.

“It was never my intention to take so long to drop another album, but the Nyck at Knight idea is exactly what I wanted to be my next move. Since that time there were just label situations and industry stuff that really prevented me from doing stuff and also going on tour with Flatbush Zombies, going on the Beast Coast tour so like I was in a spot where I couldn’t drop music how I wanted to but I was getting crazy opportunities. This album basically encapsulates my life over the past 4 years, and even though I did all those albums I couldn't really dive into my struggles and achievements during those times”

One of the standout tracks on the project is “Bad Day” featuring Denzel Curry. The record which sees Nyck and Denzel going back and forth was not only a welcomed addition to the project but was also interesting as most of the project features primarily artists from New York. Speaking on his friendship with Denzel and working on this song Nyck expressed how amazing it was to work with Denzel and that the record came naturally to the two of them.

“Out of all the rappers I’ve met aside from the people I came up with, Denzel is one of the most down to earth and coolest dudes that I’ve met, he’s a unique thinker and is always striving to think outside of the box. Every since I met him he was always striving to be better, he’s kinda like a cartoon character, he’s very pure.

As someone who has been a part of the New York rap scene since the early 2010s Nyck has seen how things have changed over the years. While the current state of New York rapper is all about the drill scene, Nyck expressed his love for all the new artists coming up and even said he would love to work with the likes of Sheff G & Sleepy Hallow.

“I like all the other dudes too, I like Tjay and Sheff G a lot, Pop smoke was the dude he was going to go far. I haven't really spoken to any of them, obviously, I would have loved to work with Pop Smoke, I feel like Sheff G would be someone id like to work with, with him I think it would be a dope collab”
