NF has recently released long awaited fifth solo studio album, titled “HOPE.”
It was announced through the album’s self-titled lead single, “HOPE”, released on February 16, 2023. This marks NF’s first full-length studio album in over three years.
The album includes a song “Turn My Back,” produced by Saint X and David Garcia, NF shows love to Eminem, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar and others who inspired him musically.
Need grace, need love, need God, need faith
Betray, cut ties, first time, first take
Worst case, wordplay, my home, my stage
My place, less you, more Ye
More Drake, more Em, more Dre
More Cole, more Kendrick, more names
Cordae, Sean, 6LACK, my list
My names, my picks, my taste (Woo)
One of NF’s favorite artists growing up was Eminem. And as you can see, he still relates to his music.
NF and Eminem had a little battle of words before, starting with Eminem’s song “The Ringer” on the album “Kamikaze” in 2018, saying that NF copied his album Recovery, probably referring to NF’s album Therapy Session.
Even though NF didn’t name drop Eminem after the shot against him, he spat his part on his song “Returns” on the album “The Search” in 2019. And possibly addressed to this incident when he said even his idols opinions don’t matter to him anymore in the song “MOTTO” in this new album.
Even though all this happened between them, NF still counts Eminem on his list and respects his childhood idol as an artist.
