  1. You are the realest rapper and all the money and things you get is right it bellongs to you keep going 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

  2. When you see NF on a video title, you immediately Know that you gotta press that like button faster than NF's rapping.

    I lost👐
    Wasn't fast enough

  3. This guy is very known here in my country Kenya, which is in Africa.
    I enjoy his music a lot better than most of other U.S.A Rappers or Rather mumble rappers whose fame are bigger than their weight and balance with their immature ego.
    This guy NF is REAL. Kenya should be the first African Nation he does a concert when he starts touring Africa.

    Like so that this comment gets the attention it deserves.

  4. I made a cover on Logic Homicide ft Eminem. I know it's not perfect but I think it's worth watching. Here's the link
    https://youtu.be/wrqknM8-hNY

  5. Fuckin’ love this flow!! Eminem brought me here cause of your interview about the top 5, I’m a fan now! Already bought your album! Keep delivering man!!! Here from Portugal 🇵🇹

  6. another eminem oh goodness lmao he ight I like what he's saying in the song he's not acting like someone he's not i like him he really loves eminem i can tell he coming with the same flow but better to me almost more authentic but em started off inspiring ppl talking a certain way about life so does this kid

  7. Other rappers: have expensive cars and hot models

    NF: has a dump truck and a bunch of trash cans
    Only NF can make a fire rap without bragging about his riches

  8. ╔══╗╔╗

    ╚╗╔╝║║╔═╦╦╦╔╗

    ╔╝╚╗║╚╣║║║║╔╣

    ╚══╝╚═╩═╩═╩═╝ NF

  9. Lyricst are waiting patiently waiting to strike and when we or they strike mumble will be no more so everyone get a pencil and paper and write shit down

  10. This is a song I’ve had on repeat for hours I relate so much as a kid whom wants to be a rapper however my music that I make currently is garbage which is what NF is doing I guess the thing is about this song is he’s like being someone who’s not him at least not in this current state it’s confusing
