After going viral with “HOPE,” the lead single and title track off his upcoming 5th solo studio album, rapper and producer NF has just returned with another track from the new project, titled “MOTTO.” Like its predecessor, “MOTTO” quickly climbed into the Top 10 on the Genius Top Songs chart and collected 2 million views on YouTube within 24 hours.
Produced by NF himself, “MOTTO” finds the Michigan born emcee, whose real name is Nathan Feuerstein, reflecting on his chosen path to success—and he has absolutely no regrets. He has some choice words for any critics of his career choices on the second verse.
“(Oh, snap) This is the industry… (Oh, yeah) Would’ve gave anything / To be respected by the artist I was listening to / but not no more, them days are history.” – NF raps.
As fans believe, the line could be shot at Eminem. Feuerstein has credited Em as his prime influence in hip hop, claiming that at one point Slim Shady was all he listened to.
People also believe that Eminem has previously sneak dissed NF on “The Ringer,” song from Kamikaze album. In the song, the Detroit hip-hop icon raps:
“I’d just be like everyone else in the f–king industry / Especially an effing Recovery clone of me (NFing)”
Fans in the social media are speculating that the young rapper is definitely responding Eminem on his new song. “NF FINALLY RESPONDS TO EMINEM’S DISS. The Ringer is from 2018, and Motto is from 2023.” One user said. Another said: “NF is most likely talking about Eminem in this clip. Eminem allegedly called out NF in his 2018 track “The Ringer”
