nf interview eminem


You hear it as well in YBN Cordae’s debut album, “The Lost Boy,” which debuted at No.

He began writing and rapping at the age of 12 and started recording songs on Karaoke machine; he recorded his raps on one microphone and the instrumentals on the other. While "The Big Day" had larger streaming numbers than "The Search," that wasn't enough to give Chance's album the edge over NF, with "The Big Day" trailing by 20,000 equivalent album units. His 2017 release, “Perception,” debuted at No. But as he explains in one interview, echoing Flannery O’Connor: “I’m a Christian, but I’m just an artist. To rap with such force and gymnastic verve in this climate of psychedelia and melody feels like an ethical choice as much as an artistic one. I just make music.”, More: Chance the Rapper posts concerning message, responds to his critics: 'Shame is heavy yo', More: The best and worst of Lollapalooza 2019 in Chicago. He played at the ‘Fine Arts … I sing and I rap and I think my music has a different sound to it," he explained to BREATHEcast a few months ago, "It'll develop more and more but I think it's just very raw and kind of has a darker feel to it. Read our EP review here. Mainstream hip-hop fans might not understand how NF’s “The Search,” which had no significant media push around it, topped “The Big Day,” an album that saw Chance partnering with Lyft and giving major interviews in support of the release. Speaking about fellow Michigan native Eminem, NF describes growing up and listening to the Detroit rapper’s music as “one of the first times I felt like I heard something that was super raw”. As a rapper, NF is indefatigable, tongue-twisty and relentless — a clear inheritor of that other white rapper from Michigan, Eminem. 1. He released his debut album “Moments” in 2010 as an independent artist. Through the years of knowing and hearing Eminem we all can say he is better than NF… But can we say that now? With most of his album promo coming from various posts on his social media, NF took to Twitter to praise fans and management for helping him send "The Search" to No. I guess that could be the only thing that maybe some rappers tend to stay away from. For so long he was only focused on rap music.
In NF’s case, the classification is a kind of shorthand to exclude him from broader conversations about hip-hop, which he most assuredly belongs in. Self-lacerating misery is his sole subject. “White America,” “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” “Sing For The Moment,” there is so many dope songs, I don’t know…” Lauren Daigle talks Kanye West, Billie Eilish and missing being on tour having human interactions, Sight & Sound's 'Queen Esther' live broadcast to debut Sept. 4; lead actors talk being still in God, Story of Apostle Paul reaching next generation in new graphic novel. And the biggest difference between NF and Eminem is at once the least obvious and most surprising: NF is a Christian who was originally signed to a Christian music label. Back in the 1990s, this kind of rapping — the type that calls attention to its own flamboyance — used to be prized and rewarded. 12 and became a pop radio staple. “Leave Me Alone” feels like a real-time reckoning with success that arrives too quickly: “Hide my plaques inside a closet, I just can’t explain it/My wife, she tells me that she’s proud and thinks that I should hang ’em/But I just leave them on the ground right next to my self-hatred.” On “My Stress” he confesses, “I don’t love my work the way I did” — who can relate? Perhaps in an effort not to be pigeonholed, NF distanced himself from the term for years, telling Idolator in a 2016 interview that while he “(talks) about my faith” in his music, he “wouldn’t describe himself” as a Christian rapper. He admitted that his early music sounded "too much" like Eminem, and that is why he has tried to evolve his sound. "I don't compare myself to other rappers...I'm trying to be a different artist in general. And yet an NF victory demonstrated roughly the same thing as a hypothetical Chance victory would have — a triumph for a certain style of intricate rapping, intermittently popular over the years but not particularly in vogue right now, and a certain moral value set that’s also not terribly in style. To enjoy, you'll need to enable JavaScript in your web browser. 1 spot on Billboard’s albums chart this week. (Merchandise and ticket bundles frequently figure into the equation.). NF also told Idolator that he “pretty much just listened to Eminem for six years,” an influence that’s immediately evident when listening to him rap. This includes NF. Now, less than two years after the success of “Perception,” NF pulled off an even more impressive feat with “The Search,” which, along with Chance the Rapper, beat out new albums from Of Monsters and Men and Andy Grammer, and helped knock Ed Sheeran’s “No.6 Collaborations Project” down to No. 1 Album in the Country, and He Sounds Miserable, The Michigan rapper NF sounds agonized about his success on his new album, “The Search.”, YBN Cordae showcases a more diverse musical palate on “The Lost Boy.”. You know what I mean? ", Chance the Rapper posts concerning message, responds to his critics: 'Shame is heavy yo', The best and worst of Lollapalooza 2019 in Chicago, Your California Privacy Rights/Privacy Policy. Eminem remains a parent to the slapstick gore of early Odd Future, and his hyperdense rhyming is foundational to Logic and NF. 1, and its single “Let You Down” reached No. They are saying I'm like a knockoff.". His internal well-being is a bonfire, and fame seems only to be an accelerant. As a stand-alone event, it’s not particularly meaningful: Chance is, broadly speaking, far more popular than NF. He’s an objectively strong rapper who makes work with a moral valence — just like Cordae, just like Chance, just like Lamar or Logic or J. Cole.

I think when people compare me to him, that's not what they are saying. 3 this week. You read part one, part two, and part three. He has the polysyllabic rhymes down, and the self-laceration, too. BREATHEcast did a set of three interviews with NF over the summer. Meet NF, a rapper with a much lower profile than Chance’s, with a devoted fan base that propelled his release "The Search" to the top of the charts. That's what's always motivated me.". Both he and YBN Cordae emphasize old-fashioned hip-hop values. But in this era, it’s more a curiosity, even if proponents like Chance and Kendrick Lamar excel at it. Almost every song on “The Search” is about how the success he has experienced in the last few years has been disorienting and fraught. That’s the easiest way for me to explain it. In 2017, NF’s third album, “Perception,” went to No. 1, none for more than two consecutive weeks. The 28-year-old rapper was born Nathan Feuerstein in Gladwin, Michigan. NF is also not shy about admitting his appreciation for Drake, Royce Da 5’9 and his favorite rapper Eminem alongside non-rap artist like Ed Sheeran. 1 album these days indicates popularity, but also the power of release-week shenanigans: As major stars move toward short-notice album-drop strategies rather than extended rollout periods, they look for open windows that will all but ensure they’ll debut at No. I rap about what I feel and what place I'm in. I'm not saying I'm an emo rapper, but maybe some people would define it like that because I've been through some things. Part of the agonizing he does on “The Search” is about not being taken seriously enough — “Why the game looking at me like I’m just a tourist?” he raps on “No Excuses” — and emerging into the spotlight only to find that the value system you hold so dear is not in fact that widely admired. I think Eminem Show is one of the best albums ever.

So, Eminem disses NF on “The Ringer?” Let’s discuss. NF admits that Eminem’s music was a major source of inspiration. "I think the thing that annoys me the most out of it, I feel like some people just do it because I'm white, and I rap, and as soon as they hear a white rapper they assume Eminem," he revealed in the interview.

“I mean, I’m a Christian, but I’m just an artist,” he said. To me it’s like, if you’re a Christian and you’re a plumber, are you a Christian plumber? But Eminem was a wild fantasist before he became a full-time solipsist; NF is seemingly only concerned with his own interior life. In an interview with Wade-O Radio, NF was asked about the constant Eminem comparisons, especially him being white and from Detroit. In what may be a surprise to many music fans, the new album by the beloved hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper, “The New Day,” was edged out … 1, "The Search" sold more copies than predicted — 130,000 equivalent album units, as opposed to the 95,000 forecast — and benefited from iTunes Store sales, as well as albums bundled with signed merchandise and concert tickets sold through NF’s official web store. Christian rapper NF expressed his thoughts on the constant Eminem comparisons in a recent interview, and said it is "annoying" to constantly be called a "knockoff.".

Judging by the tenor of the lyrics on “The Search,” NF might prefer that things stay that way. NF is more rounded in his musical taste than just hip-hop, and goes moment to moment with his listening.
