General Grant’s “Nothing To Something”

Written by: Adela Scotland

The 2023 Trinidadian Carnival Season is here and several artists are releasing hit after hit. Even veterans are throwing a song or two in the soca mix this year and General Grant is no exception.

His latest release “Nothing to Something,” is a fast-paced, catchy soca tune that celebrates finding success in life. The song was written by General Grant but he had assistance from Farmer Nappy. Farmer Nappy sent him a “riddim” from MSK music Barbados and enabled him to create a brand new sound for himself. The song currently has 3.4k views on Youtube and is sure to gather more in the weeks to come.

A Trinidadian-born musician, General Grant has been involved in the music industry for over 40 years.  He started off his career as a DJ but was given an opportunity in the 1980s to record and perform. Following his 1988 release Mr. Energizer, that combined reggae and hip hop, General Grant has gone on to become a well-known Caribbean performer. His tunes are often a fusion of hip-hop, reggae, dancehall soca, and other Caribbean rhythms. He releases music periodically in order to maintain his relevance.
