Published on March 21, 2012
ATLANTA–Xist Music announces the signing of Michigan native hip hop artist, Nate Feuerstein (pronounced Fire-stīne) also known as N.F. to a recording contract. He joins The Ambassador, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Andalé, Jahaziel, Yaves, and Xist label president and vocalist, Sean Simmonds to the roster. Xist will produce an EP titled “I’m Free” which is set to release April 24th. “This kid is serious”, says T. Black, CEO of Xist Music. “It’s very exciting to see the material he’s putting out.” Simmonds, who is featured on the song, “Alone” says “We want the world to hear why we are so excited about N.F.”
N.F. has also secured an exclusive booking agreement with The Elite Agency. As one of the premiere companies in the Christian Contemporary Music industry, Elite represents some of the biggest names in the genre such as Switchfoot, Plumb and Brian “Head” Welch, in addition to a host of NFL players and coaches, and WWE wrestlers. “I was instantly impressed with Nate from the moment I hit play the first time,” says Mark Claassen, Owner/Agent. “He has a relevant sound and message that crosses cultural boundaries, in a good way! I look forward to being part of the team that brings Nate’s music and message to the masses.”
N.F. first impressed music lovers when the high school student competed at the 2008 Fine Arts Festival and placed 1st in the Rap category for the state of Michigan and placed 2nd nationwide in 2009. “I’m happy to now officially be a part of Xist Music. I look forward to working with them and standing by artists I’ve listened to long before I ever started my own thing,” says N.F. His real-life experiences are a catalyst that flows through every part of his music, and plays a huge role in the passion delivered in his musical expression.
He also possesses the rare talent of freestyling— when rap lyrics are improvised a cappella or with instrumental beats, i.e. performed with no previously composed lyrics, or “off the top of the head”. His lyrics, often inspired from a not so happy childhood, are based on understanding life’s challenges, struggles and solutions rooted in Jesus Christ and scripture.
N.F. shares the bill on The Amazed Tour II featuring Everyday Sunday, All Things New, and Grant Woell.
