  1. Everyone who hit `dislike` thought it said `DISS-A-LIKE`

    “`css
    But for real, that's the enemy disliking the video.
    “`

  2. Pretty sad people need to comment on the fact that he made it. From day one it was pretty easy to discern that it would happen with time. True skill and measure is undeniable. Nate doesn't hide his appreciation for God. He is a white hip hop artist in a divided societal time due to politics. He isn't produced by Dre. And he spits like Em, but doesn't resort to profanity and filler words in his lyrics. Of course he made #1. He edifies unity, truth, passion, and hard work.

  3. 12k dislikes?
    Iโ€™m bouta smack whoeverโ€™s disliking this. Itโ€™s the only rap song Iโ€™ve ever heard without drugs money girls shooting people and all that stuff.

  4. You are so good at speaking truth, real truth…bringing to light the real enemies tricks, distractions, and also the enemy of even ourself. God bless in Jesus name.

  5. Wow. What a powerful story. #gifted. He's so expressive of the depths of his soul as he is trying to make it down the uneven path he chose. As heโ€™s trails along , the white .. I saw it as the Light..follows him. In the end, I saw it as the Light finally permeating the darkness, as He tries to refresh him after he stops to rest. ๐ŸŒท I can relate.

  6. I love this guy. Original ideals and the comparison people make can be done with any and every white rapper. Besides nino bless

  7. Watch the vid college kids react to nf its year old and in it watch the big boned person wth glasses and he calls nf forgettable and at 2:22 he say โ€œcall me what you want but never call me forgettable โ€œ

  8. Amazing rap without cuss words

    Rhymes are amazing and actually makes sense not just the for the sake of it

    Deep meaning

    SALUT TO MY NEW FAVORITE RAPPER

  9. [Verse]
    "Hey, Nate, how's life?"
    I donโ€™t know, it's alright
    I've been dealinโ€™ with some things like every human being
    And really didn't sleep much last night
    "I'm sorry," that's fine
    I just think I need a little me time
    I just think I need a little free time
    Little break from the shows and the bus rides, yeah
    Last year I had a breakdown
    Thoughts tellin' me I'm lost gettin' too loud
    Had to see a therapist, then I found out
    Somethin' funnyโ€™s goinโ€™ on up in my house
    Yeah, I started thinkin' maybe I should move out
    You know, pack my cart, take a new route
    Clean up my yard, get the noose out
    Hang up my heart, let it air out
    Iโ€™ve been searchin'
    "What does that mean, Nate?" I've been learning
    Grabbin' my keepsakes, leavinโ€™ my burdens
    Well, I brought a few with me, I'm not perfect
    Lookin' at the view, like this concerns me
    Pickin' up the cues, right? I'm quite nervous
    Hate it when I lose sight, life gets blurry
    And things might hurt me
    It's prolly gonna be a long journey, but hey
    It's worth it, though
    Cold world out there, kids, grab your coats
    It's been a minute, I know, now I'm back to roam
    Lookin' for the antidote to crack the code
    Pretty vivid; I admit it, I'm in classic mode
    Don't need pity given to me, but I can't condone
    Talkin' down to me, I'ma have to crack your nose for crackin' jokes
    I'm lookin' for the map to hope, you seen it?
    Been makin' a whole lot of changes
    Wrote a song about that, you should play it
    I get scared when I walk on these stages
    I look at the crowd and see so many faces, yeah
    That's when I start to get anxious
    That's when my thoughts can be dangerous
    That's when I put on my makeup and drown in self-hatred
    Forget what I'm saying, andโ€”
    Where'd the beat go?
    Oh, ain't that somethin'?
    Drums came in, you ain't see that comin'
    Hands on my head, can't tell me nothin'
    Got a taste of the fame, had to pump my stomach
    Throw it back up like I don't want it
    Wipe my face, clean off my vomit
    OCD, tryna push my buttons
    I said don't touch it, now y'all done it
    I can be critical, never typical
    Intricate with every syllable, I'm a criminal
    Intimate, but never political, pretty visual
    Even if you hate it, I'll make it feel like you're in it, though
    You call me what you wanna, but never call me forgettable
    Leave you deep in thought, I could never swim in the kiddie pool
    Way that I been thinkin' is cinematic, it's beautiful
    Man, I don't know if I'm makin' movies or music videos (Videos, videos)
    Yeah, the sales can rise
    Doesn't mean much though when your health declines
    See, we've all got somethin' that we trapped inside
    That we try to suffocate, you know, hopin' it dies
    Try to hold it underwater but it always survives
    Then it comes up out of nowhere like an evil surprise
    Then it hovers over you to tell you millions of lies
    You don't relate to that? Must not be as crazy as I am
    The point I'm makin' is the mind is a powerful place
    And what you feed it can affect you in a powerful way
    It's pretty cool, right? Yeah, but it's not always safe
    Just hang with me, this'll only take a moment, okay?
    Just think about it for a second, if you look at your face
    Every day when you get up and think you'll never be great
    You'll never be greatโ€”not because you're not, but the hate
    Will always find a way to cut you up and murder your faith (Woo)
    I've been developin', take a look at the benefits
    Nothin' to meddle with, I can never be delicate
    Am I even relevant? That depends how you measure it
    Take a measurement, then bag it up and give me the evidence
    Pretty evident; dependable can never be tentative
    I'm a gentleman, depending on if I think you're genuine
    Pretty elegant, but not afraid to tell you to get a grip
    Proper etiquette, I keep it to myself when I celebrate, ah
    It's that time again
    Better grab your balloons and invite your friends
    Seatbelts back on, yeah, strap 'em in
    Look at me, everybody, I'm smilin' big
    On a road right now that I can't predict
    Tell me "Tone that down," but I can't resist
    Y'all know that sound, better raise your fist
    The search begins, I'm back, so enjoy the trip, huh

  10. a rapper I've been waiting for. rapping about real things, you can feel the passion. I'ma be spinning this dude for a long ass time

  11. This guy is hot. Hate to say it but he do have a Eminem type style, but not as lyrically as him but good nevertheless. He's going to be here for a while

  12. Why a trolley tho? and why the white outfits and balloons feel like I'm missing on this huge metaphor here hahaha

  13. Hey Nate, how's life?
    I don't know it's alright
    I've been dealin' with some things like every human being
    And really didn't sleep much last night
    I'm sorry
    That's fine
