Michigan-born and multi-platinum awarded rapper NF (a.k.a. Nathan Feuerstein) upholds a mantra of “Real Music,” he does so supported by a real movement. Existing on the fringe, he pulled the global mainstream to him with his third studio album, Perception. Shocking the industry, countless fans showed up and lifted the record to #1 on the Billboard Top 200, representing the ultimate underdog story of 2017 chronicled by The New York Times, Forbes, and more. The year after, he repeated the success with his album The Search when again debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. His global monster hit “Let You Down” has earned multiple platinum awards around the world and encroached half-a-billion Spotify streams in under a year.
I was first introduced to NF by my tattoo artist, who while tattooing me at a local tattoo festival, played Mansion and I was immediately hooked. Mansion is a song about dealing with the things in your head that you don't want anyone to see, the scars of the past that just aren't visible. If you've read the article I wrote previously, The Music that saved my life, then you all know how much I appreciate Nate's honesty, his talent and lyrics that have this innate ability to reach inside and put a lyric to the things you can't make sense of.
I've always been attracted to music with deep and meaningful lyrics a
NF has that rare ability to unleash albums into the world that are unskippable. I don't think he knows how to put out a bad song. I love that he can switch from a rap heavy song like Outcast & Leave Me Alone and switch up to haunting vocals on songs like Trauma and Paralyzed.
Clouds gives us a glimpse of the songs that never made it onto the albums that NF has realized and to be fair, if this is the stuff he is leaving off the album then we need a mixtape after every album release!
NF returns to 2021 with his unique style of lyricism, a blend of rap and vocal talent that rivals his peers and in my opinion, surpasses them. His cult following, including me, have devoured his songs like we've been starving for his honesty and his Real Music.
Standout tracks for me:
Clouds. That's a Joke, Prideful, Lost (Feat. HOPSIN) Layers, Trust ft Tech N9ne & Paid My Dues
