On the heels of a newly released track “WHY,” Michigan rapper NF announced an upcoming North American headline tour earlier this year. Anytime a white rapper comes out with some relatively technical flow in his bars, it’s easy to say stuff like, “He sort of sounds like Eminem,” since Mathers, arguably, is still the most technical rapper alive. And it’s not like the dude sounds just like Em – NF definitely has his own voice, but the comparison here is more a compliment to skill rather than saying he’s just ripping off Mathers.
With NF, especially on “WHY,” the 27-year-old rapper showcases a wide range of cadences while getting personal on the track and letting listeners in on some his fears – the kind of stuff that re-affirms why he’s a platinum-certified artist. The tour rolls through theaters and arenas across the country and touches down in San Antonio on Monday at the Aztec Theatre.
$35-$40, Mon Nov. 5, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., theaztectheatre.com.
