"MTV RapFix - Get In The Game with N.A."

N.A. was interviewed live on MTV RapFix by Sway, and then critiqued by Prodigy (of Mobb Deep)--which lead to Prodigy saying he wanted to sign N.A. - MTV RapFix


"N.A. - Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle. (Mixtape)"

Today marks the release of the homie N.A.’s new mixtape Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle. The project is a incredibly dope collection of 14 new tracks from the up and coming, and super talented N.A. We let you hear some of the project already including “Sheep & Wolf” and “Hierarchy” but today you can check out the full project, and let me say this personally, you will not be disappointed by any of the 14 tracks contained.
The mixtape was produced by Josh Estes, who handled all production work besides “Marlene’s House” which was produced by Flip. This shit goes in, and encompasses a lot of relatable topics. Do yourself a favor and get familiar with this man known as N.A.; I highly doubt this will be last we’ll be hearing from him. Check out the mixtape Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle. after the jump and let us know what you think. - StupidDope.com


"N.A. - Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle. (Review)"

N.A.

Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle.

Producers: Josh Estes, Flip



I remember the first time I heard N.A. I was thrown back and had to ask, “Who is this?!”. When Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle. was released on July 10th, I immediately went out and listened to it. The mixtape is a follow up to Substance Abuse that came out last fall. It definitely proved that N.A. has grown even more. The lyrical content is exactly what I wanted to hear from him and the beats just have that “can’t stop, won’t stop” vibe to them.

This mixtape paints a picture of the education in Hip-Hop that N.A. takes very seriously. The single, “Hierarchy”, pays homage to the growth an emcee can have by paying attention to the greats that came before. This is an education that N.A. takes seriously. The 16 bars I heard on “Sheep and Wolf” had me pressing repeat over and over. Josh Estes make his presence apparent on his tracks. The beats worked together perfectly with the intensity and flow of N.A.’s voice.

The Brooklyn-native emcee uses this mixtape as a confessional. You can hear the different aspects he wants to convey in his songs, the culture, the influences, the struggles, the love, and everything else in between. As someone working to make a name for himself in Hip-Hop, N.A. made a major leap with this mixtape.

"(2)Dope To Sleep On: N.A."

It’s been awhile since I dropped an official stamp on someone (The Seshen being the last, in January), but after hearing a few joints from the Brooklyn-born/Phoenix-living N.A. I had to help spread his word. And rather than rehash dude’s bio, I’ll just let the music speak for itself. Check the three cuts I’ve included in the post and/or grab his debut project, Substance Abuse, right here. - www.2DopeBoyz.com

Bio

When it comes to hip-hop, N.A.’s style is quick witted and a hint of smooth, his words grab you to make you pay attention to the story’s he’s telling and takes you on a journey you haven’t heard told with his emphasis before. N.A. is a Brooklyn transplant in Phoenix, but his talents as an emcee are those of a classic sense. In the studio creating music with his team, the only thing absent is a pen and a pad as N.A. recites his verses, that are locked away in his memory waiting to be dropped at the opportune moment. He has shared the stage with Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Pac Div, Raekwon, Dom Kennedy, Wale, Pusha-T, and much more. Over the summer of 2012, N.A. released his second project Love. Compromise. Lies. Hustle. which received national recognition from the leaders in independent music websites, 2dopeboyz.com. After multiple sites followed in their footsteps and the response to the project was positive, MTV’s web based hip-hop lifestyle show Rapfix Live reached out to N.A.’s team to feature him on a “Get in The Game” segment during their show taped out of New York. MTV veteran Sway Calloway is the host of the show, and for that scheduled day the featured guest, Prodigy ( of Mobb Deep), was quick to say he “wants to sign” N.A. after seeing a short clip of his lead single off of LCLH, Sheep and Wolf. With this response it was clear that N.A. was creating music his listeners and peers could relate to. Later, N.A. ventured out to his home town of Brooklyn New York and performed at a showcase organized by The Source. Being able to perform in his home in front of friends and family was only something he had dreamed of happening, and only motivated him to push that much harder to reach the status of a successful artist.
