Mansion, the first full-length record from hip hop/alternative artist NF (Nate Feuerstein). Coming on strong with the speed of Eminem and the honest attitude of Lecrae, Christian rapper NF gets dark and introspective on his debut album, but there's plenty of hope and honor here as well. The title track goes room by room through the mansion of struggles NF encountered before he got on the right path, while later there's "I'll Keep On," an uplifting anthem that stays true to its title. Wordplay whips by as the man can put a joke, a shout-out, and a Bible verse all in the same line, and while his delivery is more spoken than "musical," it fits right in with his unwavering quest for truth. Guests like Britt Nicole and Jeremiah of the Neverclaim help the rapper deliver the goods on this awesome debut.
