  1. NF your my favorite artist me and my dad listen to you everyday you imspired me to be a rapper and I have some good song so thank you! and if anyone fells the same ways like this comment.

  2. I’ve only just found NF but wow he’s amazing. I found him from an Instagram advert that he put out. It’s the first time I’ve been thankful for an advert ever

  3. Don't forget about https://www.youtube.com/user/tommeeprofitt for delivering those goose bump bringing beats! Both of you'll did an amazing job on this album and deserve the respect you worked so hard to attain!

  4. Okay so this shopping cart has been seen in this video and nf leave me alone video too… What's the meaning behind this

  5. NF:raps about being anxious
    Me and NF:where da beat go?
    NF:*giggles*
    Me:*gets hit by a truck*
    NF: you weren't supposed to do that!

  6. NF is good at rapping and not like the trash from most rappers as most rap songs these days isn't real music and it's mostly mechanical voices with sound affects

  7. I really hope young people are listening to his message. This is the most important message in this song as far as I am concerned.

    "The point I'm makin' is the mind is a powerful place

    And what you feed it can affect you in a powerful way

    It's pretty cool, right? Yeah, but it's not always safe

    Just hang with me, this'll only take a moment, okay?

    Just think about it for a second, if you look at your face

    Every day when you get up and think you'll never be great

    You'll never be great, not because you're not, but the hate

    Will always find a way to cut you up and murder your faith"

    Hit that thumbs up if you are able to dream big and chase those dreams no matter what anyone else says!

  8. Sorry For The Self Promotion, But I’m An Artist, 🖤 My Genres Consist Of Rap/ Hip Hop, Rock , R&B , Lo-Fi.. ETC. Check My Channel Out To Help Me Grow🎙 It would mean a lot To Me, If Not, It’s okay❤️ Blessings.

  9. This may be a long verse but it's easily my favorite part of this song, chills every single time. NF speaks to my soul and puts to words what I can't.

    2:32 – 3:02
    "Doesn't mean much though when your health declines
    See we've all got somethin' that we've trapped inside
    That we try to suffocate you know hoping it dies
    Try to hold it under water
    But it always survives
    Then it comes up out of nowhere like an evil surprise
    Then it hovers over you to tell you millions of lies
    You don't relate to that, must not be as crazy I am
    The point I'm makin is the mind is a powerful place
    And what you feed it can affect you in a powerful way
    It's pretty cool right? Yeah, but it's not always safe
    Just hang with me this will only take a moment okay
    Just think about it for a second if you look at your face
    Every day when you get up and think you'll never be great
    You'll never be great
    Not because you're not but the hate
    Will always find a way to cut you up and murder your faith"

  10. Producer : So what do u need for the clip?
    NF : A shooping cart and balloons
    Producer : is that all?
    NF : no, and a creepy desert please.
    Producer : OKay… ?_?

  11. 能感動人心的歌詞節奏 終能脫離主流 化身成一種撼動心靈的力量 也許在看似圈裡的你其實知道 圈不住你理念 善念在你心中成了個圓 更帶給人們慰藉

  12. Me – ‘ok I’ll deffo have a bath and early night’

    Two hours later sat in same place with my headphones in listening to same NF songs 4747283474383847483933 times.

  13. You know, when he said "it's that time of the year again, get the balloons and invite your friends" my first thought was, I don't have any friends. Yeah I know I'm alone.

  14. a skilled, competent white rapper, who is capable of delivering a performance that compels an emotional response from me gets a 👍

  15. Please make a shirt, “It’s that time again, better grab your balloons and invite your friends”. Such a good line.

  16. Kinda reminds me of Eminem tbh, was hoping there would be a little more going on with the tunes as well. It's alright.
