"Aint Nothin To It- IMG"

My dude IMG just hit me off with his latest mixtape hosted by DJ Whoo Kid and DJ CA$H. It’s crazy because I went to high school with this cat, and now he’s an up and coming MC/college sophomore signed to Shadyville Ent. His grind his crazy and tape is a heatrock so be sure to cop it. Definitely a solid product, but I’ll let the DatPiff bio explain this kid’s background and why he’s the future:

“IMG is a quick study. The MC, otherwise known as 19-year-old Maplewood, New Jersey native Grant Palmer, only began rapping in his senior year of high school. By the time he entered Syracuse University last fall, his hobby quickly developed into a serious career goal. Now, after a year in which he’s rocked stages with the likes of T.I. and Wiz Khalifa and amassed more than 20,000 fans on Facebook, the soon-to-be sophomore is set to graduate to the next level with his DJ Whoo Kid-backed mixtape, Ain’t Nothing To It.“ -


The Movement (April 2010)

Aint Nothin To It (September 2010)



Grant Palmer, or IMG to his rapidly expanding fan base and music industry colleagues. Not your typical rapper, his clean cut, polished style and straight-laced demeanor might have you thinking he was a sensible scholar with ambitious academic pursuits - and you’d be right. Further against the grain, his musical career is not the result of a life-long passion. In fact, he found himself at a crossroads when the opportunity to pursue his first passion - soccer - became a reality. On the advice of his own intuition, and the parents he respects immensely, he made the decision to follow the path of education. Rapping started out as a hobby, but quickly evolved when he realized he had real talent.

Currently shaking things up as a sophomore at Syracuse University, holding above 3.0, while steadily advancing his music dream one strategic step at a time. Backed every inch of the way by his parents, who help him keep his priorities in check, while fully supporting his dream. He connects with his fans through social networking, continually expanding his web of followers, and creating a buzz. He’s planning to conquer the country one campus, one county at a time. Musically, he compares himself to no one in particular, but admits he’s most inspired by those who can balance thoughtful rhymes with melodic artistry. IMG is now on tour promoting his sophomore mixtape Ain’t Nothin’ To It. Having shared the stage with the likes of Yelawolf, Wiz Khalifa, even T.I., this 20 year-old student is clearly on a mission.
