FRESH HEAT - Nature Nate - "Breathe"
While Dallas is known for its big lights, fast night life and rowdy fan base of Dallas Cowboy fans, Nature Nate sheds a rare light on his city from the South side like never before. Hailing from Duncanville, TX just south of the city, Nature Nate wants to set himself apart from the typical dope boy raps and gun slang that many rappers from Dallas typically aspire to.
"I'm not one of those people that came from somewhere else or anything like that, I grew up in Duncanville," Nature Nate explained. "The Dallas sound is more typically dance or people making something catchy or talking about how much they're in the streets, slanging dope or killing people - but most of them.... don't even do that. I rap about more life situations and how I see them."
His new release "Breathe" is a poignant take on the recent crisis facing Black males in America after countless Black males are being murdered by police via the use of excessive force.
