● Tell me in a few words, who you are. How would you describe yourself in a short story.

I’m Btf Nate , I’m 22 from Clayton county Georgia and that’s where I currently reside.

● What’s your stage name and how did you come up with it?

My Stage name is Btf Nate And I came up with “BTF” (Born To Finesse) when I was in 10th grade I wanted to stand out from everyone else and create my own wave I had a vision at a young age that I was going to be something one day I just knew that I had to build the foundation at a young age I had to finesse my self in and out of a lot of situations just to put my self in a better position over the years btf has became more than just three letters it’s a lifestyle and has became a family, every body was already calling me nate so I just slapped btf in front of it everything bout it is just who I am so that’s how “Btf Nate” was created.

● What got you into music?

I always loved to rap I been doing it since 5th grade what really got me started was when I was young I used to watch YouTube around when it first came out and all I did was watch rap videos I ended up discovering Eminem at the time and then from there I found out about “8mile” and when I seen him get on the stage in the movie and make the crowd fill with energy I knew that I wanted to be the same and really over the years I just got better and better.

● What was life like growing up?

Life growing up for me was ok. I can’t really complain to much, I got to see both sides of the tracks. Living with my grandma I always had a roof over my head and she always had her best interest in me. I still had to get everything I own out the mud. My folks always been big on me working for what I wanted. That’s why I used to have to finesse so hard on the block or at school to get what I wanted that was my only way. Now when it came to staying with my mother, that’s when I seen the rougher lifestyle from seeing her get evicted and us moving from place to place or her working a part time job taking care of my lil brother and sister. It really used to be crazy, that’s what really helped shape my foundation as a person. It used to be times I would go get fix a plate for me ,my lil brother and sister and it would be roaches all in the food so we would go to sleep hungry.

● Who is your inspiration? What keeps you going to get up daily and put effort into your music career?

My inspiration now is my team if I’m being honest. I get up and grind so hard now because I know I got people depending on me in a way to get us all out. I mean, don’t get me wrong the money is lovely but just knowing I can help the ones close to me get to where they wanna be in life means more.

● What is your creative process like? What is the meaning behind your current single?

My creative process really is just to go with the flow when I hit the studio. I know that I'm going to deliver good music. I really don’t write, I just punch in and keep it going. I try to make every moment count.

The meaning behind “Wack Em All” and “Outside” is really to just show the world how I’m coming and how I'm standing.

● What is the name of the current single/ep/album that you are pushing? Do you prefer people to buy it or stream? And why?

The name of the the two singles I'm pushing is “Outside” and “Wack Em All”. I did just drop an album called “Btf Baby 2” also. Honestly I don’t care how you listen to my music, even if you download it off a site and listen to it for free I’m just glad you like it and I appreciate the support.

● With the industry changing so much, would you stay indie or sign to a label? Why and why not?

Right now I’m indie and ain’t nothing wrong with it. I’m not against signing with a label either. The thing most artist don’t realize is that this is a business at the end of the day. Everyone you work with wants to eat too so you have to make sacrifices to get what you want, but I feel as if I could get a reasonable deal, I would sign.

● Do you feel like the music industry has went down since the pandemic? Why or why not? Where you affected by the pandemic with music or everyday life?

I feel like it went down for a while as far as artist doing shows, but most artist made things do what it do. Everything is back up, it was just a minor setback now.

I was affected but in a good way, Covid led me to dropping out of college and doing what I wanted to do for a change.

● If you were give a chance to sit down and have a business dinner with a celebrity who would it be and why?

If I had to have a business dinner with any celebrity, I would have to pick Will Ferrell just cause my manager loves Will Ferrell and plus I’m trying to laugh.

● How do you balance everyday life tied into your music career?

I live my life off the word “accountability” and I hold myself and everyone else accountable for everything. It helps keep things problem free and it helps me focus on the bigger picture. I know the music going to work, so I just focus on bettering myself. That’s how I keep it balanced.

● Tell me about your most memorable moment in your career?

My most memorable moment is when my manager “Lt” who wasn’t my manager at the time called my phone and told me that he sees something in me and he believes in me. Then he asked me to let him know if it was anything he could do to help me. Not even going to lie, when he said that I froze because I never had somebody believe in me like that. I am going to make sure he’s a multi millionaire real soon.

● What style of music do you prefer to make? Would you ever try a different lane?

I mainly make Rap/Hip-Hop but I’m very versatile.

I can def do a different lane, it isn’t a issue.

● Do you have a celebrity crush?

I really don’t have a celebrity crush to be honest. I mean its a few I would kick it with but none in particular.

● Is there anyone who you would collab with right now?

Once again it’s so many artist that I would collab with and they range from all genre’s so I really can’t just pin point one.

● Who is the producer and engineer behind your music?

Most of the beat producers are producers I met off YouTube, except for my homeboy Thomas who goes by (DieselBeatz). I mainly record and engineer my own music.

● What are you currently working on and what is next for you?

Right now I’m not really working on nothing in specific. I’m just focusing on pushing the records but, just know I have a lot on the way for my supporters inside and outside the music.

● When it comes to fashion, whats your dressing style ?

I just keep it simple right now. I probably buy 30 black Tshirts a month, but lately I been exploring different brands and trying out new styles. Just know I still put it on.

● What is your creative process like and who inspired you to make music?

My creative process is very simple, I just go with the flow and I make it all come together. It’s hard to explain it you just have to be there to see it.

Eminem inspired me to rap at a young age, other than that it’s been myself just believing and knowing what I’m capable of.

● If you could open up for one celebrity who would it be and why?

I would open up for Lil Baby just because I know he’s got the game on lock right now and I feel as if I’m up there with the hottest artist out. I may not be up there as far as exposure wise but the music is there, so why wouldn’t I perform with somebody in the same playing field as me.

● Any funny stories or an embarrassing moments you want to share with our readers?

When I was in highschool I got expelled because I played porn on the projector. I always been the class clown and I never really cared what came with it.

● What would you be doing right now if it wasn’t for your music career?

I can’t even tell you what I would be doing, my mind won’t even let me process that question because in my eyes failure isn’t an option so I see no other way.

● What is one message you would give to your fans?

Never give up. Sometimes you have to lose one hundred times just to win once.
