Nathan John Feuerstein (born March 30, 1991), known by his initials NF (stylized as ИF), is an American rapper, singer and songwriter. He has released two EPs, I'm Free (2012),[1] and a self-titled EP in 2014 with Capitol CMG. NF has released five studio albums: Moments (2010), Mansion (2015), Therapy Session (2016), Perception (2017), and The Search (2019),[2][3] and has released a mixtape: Clouds (The Mixtape) (2021). His albums have earned several accolades, some of which include: the Gospel Music Association Dove Award for Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year (Therapy Session); two No. 1 debuts on the Billboard 200 charts (Perception and The Search); and a triple-platinum certified single in the United States which also charted internationally ("Let You Down").

Early life

Nathan John Feuerstein[4] was born in Gladwin, Michigan, on March 30, 1991.[5] His parents divorced, and he was raised by his mother until his father had to take him away when her boyfriend abused him.[6] His mother died from an overdose in 2009 which led to him dedicating the song "How Could You Leave Us" to her.[7] He graduated from Gladwin High School in 2009, and was on the basketball team.[8] NF started his career at the Fine Arts Festival organized by Connection Church in Canton, Michigan.[9]

Career

Feuerstein stated that, during his childhood, rap was an escape for him. He would record songs on a karaoke machine, recording instrumentals on one microphone and his raps on the other. On November 29, 2010, Feuerstein independently released his debut studio album Moments under his real name. On August 2, 2011, he released his debut single "Alone". The song featured songwriter and producer Tommee Profitt and Brooke Griffith. In 2012, Feuerstein's work attracted the attention of Xist Music. On May 2, 2012, he released his debut extended play I'm Free with production work from Profitt. The tracklist consisted of nine songs including "Alone". The EP also included an exclusive version of "Alone" featuring Sean Simmonds. Xist teased for the release of the self-titled extended play, NF, but Feuerstein parted ways with the label after a dispute and the production of NF was postponed.[5][10] Despite this, NF featured a song, "Only One", featuring Shuree Williams, in the label's compilation album, Move Vol 1. He released a single, "Beautiful Addiction", on November 4, 2013. The song again featured an appearance from Profitt, as well as vocals from Brady Schmitz and Danielle Swift.

Feuerstein signed to Capitol Christian Music Group in 2014, before the release of the EP, NF.[10] This project was his breakthrough release on the Billboard, as it charted on the Christian Albums chart at No. 12, on the Top Gospel Albums at No. 4, and on the Top Rap Albums at No. 15.[11][12] This extended play was reviewed by Jesus Freak Hideout and New Release Tuesday, receiving two three-and-a-half-star reviews.[13][14] CCM Magazine reviewed the EP and awarded it four stars.[15] His first studio album, Mansion, was released on March 31, 2015, by Capitol CMG.[16]

"Intro", the lead single from Mansion, is included in the video game Madden NFL 16.[17] NF's songs have been played on ESPN, VH1, Showtime, NBC's Chicago P.D., Grimm, Shades of Blue, a trailer for an Apex Legends update and in the season finale trailer of Fox's Empire. His music video for "Intro" premiered on MTV.com's homepage, and the video has also appeared on MTVU, AbsolutePunk, 2DOPEBOYZ, Raps & Hustles and The College Dropouts.

NF's songs "I Just Wanna Know" and "Real" were released on April 8, 2016, and on April 22, 2016, respectively,[18] as singles from his second studio album Therapy Session, released on April 22, 2016.[19] "Warm Up" was released as a non-album single on September 8, 2016.[20]

On October 6, 2017, NF released his third studio album, Perception.[21] The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, making it his first chart-topping album and the second artist in 2017 to release a No. 1 album without having charted on the Hot 100.[22] The next week, "Let You Down" became his first single to chart on the Hot 100, debuting at 87.[23] It became a sleeper hit, taking 17 weeks to reach its peak at No. 12.[24] After the success of Perception, he announced he would begin touring mid-2018 with rappers Logic and Kyle.[25] It was certified platinum—selling over 1,000,000 units—by the RIAA on January 11, 2019.[26]

His song "Destiny" is included in the video game MLB The Show 18.[27]

In 2018, NF released the non-album single "No Name" on January 19.[28] Later, he would release the song "WHY", the first single preceding his fourth studio album.

On May 30th, 2019, he released the title track of the album, The Search. He would later release two more singles, When I Grow Up on June 27th, and Time on July 12th. The Search album was released on July 26th.

On December 3, 2019, Feuerstein released the single "Paid My Dues", as well as a music video for the song.[29]

In October 2020, NF returned with the non-album single, "Chasing_(Demo)", after sharing a snippet of it online. The song features 15-year-old Australian fan Mikayla Sippel, who uploaded a cover of it, which inspired NF to officially release the song after being "blown away" by her version.[30]

On February 18, 2021, NF released the single "Clouds", alongside a music video, and announced his mixtape of the same name, which was scheduled for a March 26, 2021 release. The mixtape included "Paid My Dues", as well as guest appearances from rappers Hopsin (Lost/LOST) and Tech N9ne (Trust/TRUST),[31][32] followed by a third single, "Lost" featuring Hopsin, released on March 11, 2021.[33] On March 26, 2021, Clouds (The Mixtape) was released.[34]

Style

Feuerstein has credited Eminem as his prime influence in hip hop, claiming that at one point that was all he listened to. NF's style has also been compared to Logic and Machine Gun Kelly. Although he found his musical upbringing in Christian hip-hop, Feuerstein has denied his label as a Christian rapper, saying "I'm a Christian, but I don't make Christian music. You're not going to reach everyone with just one point of view. I write about things I'm actually dealing with. You don't have to be Christian to relate to them."[35]

In 2013, Feuerstein appeared on Christian hip-hop artist Flame's album Royal Flush on the track "Start Over". In 2015, his features on TobyMac's This Is Not a Test track "Til the Day I Die" and Marty's Marty For President track "The One With My Friends" gained him fame and recognition in the Christian hip-hop genre. Feuerstein's 2017 collaboration with Futuristic, "Epiphany", enhanced his career in the secular rap industry.[36][37]
