NF: Hope

I have been so out of touch with hip-hop. I don’t know any new or young rappers. Since I have a subscription to Amazon Music, I wanted to hear new hip-hop albums. NF’s Hope was on top of the list. I had no idea who NF was so I gave him a try. On the opening title track, he sounded white and a bit angry at the industry. He sang a bit and he had the flow. His lyrics were decent and I noticed that he didn’t use any curse words. In the second track, “Motto,” I heard him mentioning God. Then he talked more about God in the song he wrote about his deceased “Mama.” I realized I was listening to a Christian rap album. I got turned off.
