Michigan rapper and producer NF has dropped his much-anticipated album, Hope (NF Real Music/Virgin Music). Hope is the fifth studio album from the multi-platinum rapper.
Known for rapping quick-witted lyrics over hip hop beats, NF has built an obsessively loyal fanbase that has earned him over 30 billion global streams and established him as one of the most consistent and consumed artists, connecting directly with fans in an authentic way. Hope also features Julia Michaels on “Gone,” and rapper Cordae on “Careful”.
Earlier this year the rapper returned with the stirring new single “Hope”. The songs find the multi-Platinum hitmaker at his most raw and unfiltered as he assesses his musical journey thus far and looks to the future. “Hope” is accompanied by a suitably uplifting visual, which captures the MC’s defiance and authenticity.
Check out the video for the track below:
Next up is his facetious “Motto”, of which The New York Times says, “in his early career, NF sounded as if he was internalizing all the pressures of the world, but now he sounds free and calm, dismissing those same pressures with a shrug.”
In addition, the on sale of his HOPE TOUR begins today at 10 AM Local Time on NFrealmusic.com/tour. The 47-city tour kicks off on Wednesday, July 12th at Schottenstein Center in Columbus making stops across US, Canada, UK and Europe before wrapping up in London at the Eventim Apollo in Bell on Sunday, October 15th. The rapper will be joined on tour by album feature Cordae as support on the US and Canada dates. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit this link.

NF raps with raw grit and emotional authenticity, born of a lifetime of taking hits and getting back up again. He’s earned 39 RIAA certifications, 14 Platinum plaques, and 5 multi-Platinum honors. This success stems from genuine fan-fueled momentum — connecting directly with fans in an authentic way.
His intimate yet propulsive tracks received two consecutive No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 with Perception and The Search. Often silent on self-promotion and social media, his massive achievements come straight from his music and lyrics resonating with fans.
As Forbes noted, “NF’s success speaks to what can be done these days outside of the traditional system, proving that with his strong fan base and his incredible drive, the success of NF is a true testament to his status as a talent in the hip hop world.”
Nate Feuerstein (NF) came of age in Michigan, using music as both escape and expression, a way to channel his pain. Through the years, he’s demonstrated the power of vulnerability on hits like “Let You Down” and “The Search.”
In 2015, he signed with Capitol Records; thus setting the stage to climb to rap dominance beginning with his album, Mansion followed by Therapy Session in 2016 and Perception in 2017, which debuted at No. 1 and eventually went 2x Platinum. In 2019, he dropped The Search, which also hit No. 1 and went Platinum.
His 2021 project Clouds (The Mixtape), an inward-looking mixtape, again connected deeply with listeners, debuting within the top three on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart and Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart.
