Michigan resident Nate Feurstein is certainly not new to the music scene. Much like a diamond’s creation process, the artist who raps under the moniker NF has been growing his craft while dealing with multiple life events equivalent to the high temperature, high pressure events that form the aforementioned precious stone. Feurstein has dealt with physical abuse and the tragic loss of his mother to suicide. Thankfully, God has fulfilled his promise of never forsaking his children and helped NF through it all. That we all get to experience the resilient, awe inspiring gem that is the end result of the metamorphosis is an added bonus for the rest of us.
The self titled EP is six tracks deep, all produced by Tommee Profitt. NF takes on verse and melody responsibilities and delivers a masterpiece in the process. He spits bars throughout with a passion and fury rarely found with most emcees. The buy-in to his thoughts is both immediate and unwavering. NF follows that skill set up with an equally impressive command of the melodic control and delivery required for the choruses that he also provides.
