DUE to incredible demand rapper NF’s May 10 show at the Academy Green Room has been moved to the Main Room of the same venue.

In 2015 the Michigan rapper emerged on the scene, and now, just three years later he finds his latest record ‘Perception’, landing at the top of the Billboard 200 chart as the number one album in the US upon release.

With genuine fan-fuelled momentum, NF is perhaps the biggest underground success story of the year.

Since his raw and personal debut, ‘Mansion’, his fans know the score and have neen sticking with him and growing in size.

Mansion landed at Number 9 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart and led to his selection as one of Napster’s One to Watch emerging artists.

Born Nate Feuerstein in Saginaw, Michigan, NF began cultivating that energy at a young age.

His family moved to Gladwin when he was a kid and at the age of 12, NF began writing his own music as a daily escape.

He dubbed his first rhymes over ripped instrumentals using a karaoke machine, but in time began making his own beats.

"I'd write raps," he says. "I was horrible, but I felt relief and passion from it. It was therapeutic."

Creating and releasing three albums in as many years, NF shows no signs of slowing down.

His is a journey that fans have followed intently from 2015's Mansion, which took listeners on a room-by-room tour of his mind.

“As I get older I'm realising that I'm stuck in prisons that I created — that I've allowed fear to make decisions for me," says NF.

"You can't actually kill fear, but you can manage it so it's not speaking for you."

With Perception, NF scored not only his first Top 10 charting release, but also his first Number 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart.

His single ‘Let You Down’ has stacked over 25 million combined streams in its first month and trended at Number 1 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart in over fifty countries.
