Get to know N8TE below in our exclusive q&a interview with him
Explain who you are for those who don’t know..
A. My name is Nathan Bradford. Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. 21 years old. Pretty chilled guy who likes to have fun. Like to laugh and make others laugh. A positive person and hardworker. I keep to myself a lot and not the loudest in the bunch. But I’m a person who’s willing to help you in any situation and always there for friends and family.
How did you come up with your name?
A. Nate is my nickname. Didn’t really wanna pick a name that didn’t mean anything so just went with a name everyone around me knows me as. I made it N8TE to make it a little different.
Where are you from?
A. Milwaukee, WI
Whats it like growing up where your from?
A. It’s tough. The crime rate, violence, drugs is serious here. Milwaukee, WI has been getting a lot of attention the past couple of years for that. I didn’t grow up in the best neighborhoods around here and didn’t get into the streets like most kids around here are. That’s not me and never will be. It’s more out there then the street life that Milwaukee needs to see.
How did you get into music?
A. I’m a music head. I listen to mostly anything from rap, rock, reggae, r&b & etc. So the music I hear influences me all the time. Freshman year in high school (2011) I recorded my first song with my older brother who’s a rapper also goes by Picaso Jetson. People I was playing it for supported the song so I got the confidence to make more music and turned out to be something I like to do. I use to sit in school or at home just writing to see what I can come up with. Now I’m older I’m really focusing in on the music and Tryna become as good as I can and learn from other artists.
What makes you different than other artists?
A. Being me makes me different. I have different situations, different thoughts or even being in different environments from where I’m from. Everyone is different. I don’t copy people because of a hot sound. My music is gonna come from whatever’s in my head at the moment and whatever beat I like. I don’t go for a certain sound. I just let it flow and come out.
What are you currently working on?
A. Right now I’m focusing on single records. I am very new to being a artist. I wanna put out different vibes to express my difference in my artistry. A full length project for me is not in the works anytime soon. I wanna build people into getting to know who I am and what my sound is.
Anything you would like to say?
A. “My Ex” will be my next single dropping. It features Breana Marin. Song is a very smoove vibe that many people who’ve been in past relationships, heartbreaks will understand. My music is gonna come from everything I go thru or observed. Being true in my music will give people a better understanding on me and hope I can grab the ears. More music will be coming soon…
