Nate Joel is someone I found out about today via Emergence Management Instagram page. Nate Joel displays a style of smooth aggression with lyrical content layered with rhymes that are introspective, witty, humble, braggadocious, relatable, spiritual and empowering. Not lacking any confidence as an emcee in slightest fashion and rightfully so because listening to him you can hear how he takes pride in his craft which he strongly showcases his skills on each song. He weaves his flows effortlessly on tracks while touching on various topics over vibey & hard hitting production, all with a foundation of authenticity while being strong and vulnerable. Nate Joel's catalog of music is impressive with a series of 1-2 min videos called "Cook Boy Cook" and this new album 'As I Live' is my 1st offering from him which has left me thoroughly impressed. Stand out tracks from this project are "95", "This Pen", "Word Of Mouth" and "Hit The Timberlake". Glad I found out about Nate Joel today, he adds a another dope voice in Hip Hop, just like his new single says, he's definitely going earn the Fruit of his Labor.
