"Deezy raps for Jesus at Friday Night Jam"

"The lights were low, the music was loud and the students were excited for the first Friday Night Jam this past weekend, featuring student rapper Nate Deezy and opener Dane Mallernee...."

"The main attraction for the night was Deezy – stage name of sophomore music production major Nate Slaughter – who said that his goals for the night were to impact people and get them excited about God.
“I’m just an average musician. I don’t have the gift of speaking, I’m just an excitable guy and my job is to stir up people through music for God. I’m here to take off my mask,” said Deezy."
Following the more laid-back, acoustic show came a much different performance by Deezy, who ran on stage to the sound of a pounding bass. He immediately started rapping about God’s love, people’s unworthiness and what a true relationship with God means.

Deezy has been writing hip hop/rap music ever since he was 10, but seriously picked it up about two years ago. He recently released an album called Another Poor College Kid, in the midst of filming a music video for his single “In the Sky” and recently played a show opening for popular Christian rapper Trip Lee.

It was one of the first times that one of Deezy’s performances included a full band, including Jacob Shar on guitar, K-Dub (Kevin Walter) on drums, Andy Haas on bass, Judah (Derrik Willis), KC Carter and special guest Tamayra with vocals.

Towards the end of the performance the band left the stage and Deezy gave his testimony in his song “My Story.” Following the song the music was shut off and Deezy asked the audience to sit down as he and drummer Walters gave their testimonies.

“I just want to show you guys how disgusting of a person I am and how amazing God is,” Deezy said. After the testimonies, Mallernee joined the stage again to lead worship.

Britta Miller, junior double major in business administration and bible and theology, attended the show and commented on the spiritual impact the show had on her.

“I think a lot is going to be happening on this campus this year, and God is letting everyone use their passion to glorify Him and it’s a beautiful thing,” she said.

Miller saw Deezy perform last year at the talent show and said the difference in him and his music from then to now can only be explained by God. “He is taking his music and anything that can be taken to idolize himself and turning it into glory for God,” Miller said - The Aviso


"Halle Land benefits from student performances"

"This seemed to be a theme throughout the night as Nate Deezy followed bringing students Akash Negi, Darius McBride, and K.C. Carter on stage for a song as well.

Nate Slaughter, better known on stage as Nate Deezy, is a former student and returned to the stage in memorial chapel with his raps and beats many of the students sang along to. He is continuing to make new songs and announced his 25 recorded songs can be downloaded for free online." - The Aviso
