Video: Nyck Caution – “Coat Check”
The Pro Era Rapper Shares a Stylish Video For an Anywhere But Here Highlight
“‘Anywhere But Here’ makes the ten-year wait for Nyck Caution’s one worth experiencing – his simplistic approach to creating zingy one-liners and matter-of-fact statements talk to the listener as well as himself. Showing off his vulnerability (something Pro Era members have always excelled at), Nyck Caution has poured a whole lot of soul into this album that shouldn’t be overlooked because it’s not today’s pop trap, but celebrated because it’s a honest record — and honesty seems like a rarity these days.” – NME
“Brooklyn rapper Nyck Caution just unleashed his hard-hitting new project Open Flame via Joey Badass’ label Pro Era Records. With a distinctively New York flair, the EP is a sign of more to come” – Complex
“After crashing onto the rap scene back in 2012, NYCK and Pro Era’s sound has been likened to the golden-era greatness of the ‘90s…NYCK has plans to blend the old, traditional hip-hop with the experimentalism of new-aged rap.” – The FADER
“Open Flame is enough to paint a vivid picture of Caution’s artistry, a promising prelude to whatever full-length effort he ends up concocting” – HotNewHipHop
Respected in the Five Boroughs and beyond for his pen game, Nyck Caution is ready for his close-up. Bringing a highlight from his solo debut album Anywhere But Here to life, Nyck shares “Coat Check,” his latest music video. Reflective and deeply personal, “Coat Check” is a lyrical showcase for the young rapper, shifting from confident in the initial section to uncertain in the “Session 47” section in the second half. The song dwells on life’s cruel brevity, as the 26-year-old rapper pours one out for his fellow Brooklynite Pop Smoke and struggles to overcome his self doubt.
Shot in crisp black-and-white, the Fakedell-directed video for “Coat Check” starts in celebratory mode, as Nyck celebrates his success with some homies, including Pro Era’s Dessy Hinds and other notable figures like Kid Super, Dyemond Lewis, Ken Cash, and Aaron Rose. As the song transitions from “Coat Check” to “Session 47,” the focus shifts squarely onto Nyck, as he sits on a therapist’s couch and bares his soul.
Steeped in the culture of his home borough, Anywhere But Here reverberates with booming bass notes and crisp percussion, delivering a spin on classic NY rap sounds seasoned with Nyck’s wry sense of humor and incisive storytelling. Earning praise from Complex, UPROXX, HotNewHipHop, Okayplayer, and many more, the album arrives after years of personal turmoil, including the recent death of his father, who is honored on the tape’s opening track “December 24th” ft. Elbee Thrie. Anywhere But Here is home to singles like “How You Live It,” a hard-hitting new single with an appearance from Joey Bada$$, the smooth and reflective origin story “Product of My Environment” ft. Kota The Friend & Erick The Architect, and the aggressive drill anthem “Bad Day” ft. Denzel Curry. Featuring additional appearances from Nyck’s Pro Era cohort CJ Fly, GASHI, TheMind, and more, Anywhere But Here is available on all platforms via Pro Era Records/ADA Worldwide.

The pages of a notebook hold the past, present, and, sometimes, the future. Long before joining popular hip-hop collective Pro Era, logging over 10 million streams, and receiving acclaim from Vibe, DJ Booth, HipHopDX, and more, Nyck Caution inscribed his eventual moniker in the pages of a high school notebook. It served as a self-fulfilling prophecy as his raw rhymes and magnetic melodies powered one fan favorite project after another, leading up to Anywhere But Here, his soulful and personal debut album, releasing in January 2021.
