Later, in 2015 NF released his first studio album called Mansion. Although he doesn’t characterize himself as a Christian rapper – his Christian roots are definitely mentioned throughout his lyrics. The lyrics are what make NF something special. In the song “All I Have” he talks about the struggles of not being able to get his message across. Making music to him is not about the fame – but the ability to engage audiences with his message. 

You keep on thinking that artist is new but that artist has probably been at it for years, 
And I ain’t got no money in my wallet but I guarantee there ain’t no way that I am gonna leave this,
What you’re hearing now is me whether I’m in front or behind that curtain I stand behind these words, 
I’m a Christian but I’m not perfect.

In addition, 2016 was a big year for the Michigan rapper. He released a second studio album called Therapy Session. It won the Dove Award for Best Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year. Additionally, the song, “I Just Wanna Know”, was nominated for Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year.

Let’s take a listen to the song that anyone can relate to in regards to relationships:

NF describes, “This song is all over the place, me pulling from tons of my experiences and different relationships to different people. Usually I write songs so specific to one point, so this was a little different for me.” – Genius

Most recently, on October 6th, 2017, NF released his third full length album – Perception. “Let You Down” is the current single off the album and has been doing very well! NF is fast becoming a D.I.Y. streaming phenomenon due to overwhelming fan support – the song has been added to Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist!
