I personally find NF an aspiring artist.
He gets his motivation from life and gives us, his listeners, a glimpse of what each day is. Sometimes it pulls you down and makes you sad while other times you just want to jump out of your seat and get shit done.
He uses Music as a therapy and that is something we all can learn from.
His voice is clear and you can understand him pretty good.
Overall NF is an amazing artist.
