As we announced here and here, Nate Feuerstein, recording and performing as the hip-hop/alternative artist “NF,” will release Mansion, his first full-length LP, on March 31 (Capitol CMG). Mansion is the follow up to his self-titled EP debut released in 2014.
NF is a 23 year-old Gladwin, Michigan native and Capitol CMG Label Group’s most compelling new talent to come on the Christian hip-hop scene. The release of his EP hit No. 15 its first week on Billboard‘s Rap Albums chart and debuted at the top of the Christian/Gospel Hip-Hop album chart. NF has also received numerous accolades, most recently being named Rapzilla’s Best of 2014 Awards as New Artist and for Best Song with “All I Have.”
His songs have already been heard by millions by being featured on such outlets as ESPN’s Monday Night Football, VH1, Showtime, and NBC’s “Chicago PD” and “Grimm.” His two music videos have been successful as well. At press time, the video for “All I Have” has had more than 540k views, and his latest video, for the single “Wake Up,” debuted on Rapzilla with more than 120k views in just the first four weeks. NF has also trended on Billboard‘s Real-Time charts, an up-to-the-minute ranking of the fastest moving songs shared on Twitter within the U.S.
Already becoming a household name in just a matter of a few months, NF’s already touted by Chris Chicago from JamTheHype.com as one of the “Top 5 Artists Poised To Blow Up in 2015,” and “a combination of Macklemore and Drake’s flow along with Eminem’s energy” (from Breathecast.com). Rapzilla claims NF as “a talent and passion combined with content that is needed in hip-hop right now.” He just wrapped a tour along the west coast with JamTheHype, sharing the stage with fellow artists Je’kob, Spec and V. Rose. Further tour dates will be announced.
