From a young age, Frank Nitt was quick to absorb the rich musical history of his native Detroit, forming the rap duo Frank N’ Dank in his teens. The group eventually landed worldwide attention & acclaim for their contributions to Dilla’s debut album ‘Welcome 2 Detroit‘ in 2001 & soon after signed to MCA Records.
Poised to release their debut full length ‘48 Hours‘ (entirely produced by Dilla) the album ended up shelved, seemingly indefinitely, due to label politics. It wasn’t until 2013 that the album finally saw a proper official release, garnering critical praise for its irreverent, light-hearted rhymes & unconventional production.
After years as a group, Nitt parted ways with Dank to pursue a career as a solo emcee, eventually connecting with prolific LA beatsmith Madlib to release ‘Nittyville‘, an installment of Madlib’s acclaimed ‘Medicine Show‘ series.
Most recently, Nitt released ‘Sunset Blvd.‘, a collaborative full-length with Illa J (younger brother to the late J Dilla) over unreleased Dilla productions & featuring hip hop heavyweights Common, Talib Kweli, members of De La Soul, & The Pharcyde.
With ‘Frankie Rothstein‘, his first album on Fat Beats Records which features production from the likes of J Rocc, J Dilla, & DJ Rhettmatic, L.A. based, Detroit-bred MC Frank Nitt brings his distinguished, decades-long career full-circle, packing his inimitable style & years of industry-hardened grit in with a newfound maturity & growth.
