Born in Tennessee in 1991, Nate acquired the South’s great passion for music at a young age. This passion followed him to Twin Cities, Minnesota where he moved at the age of six. Being constantly surrounded by dedicated musicians during his upbringing taught Nate how his passion for music could be harnessed to express his own experiences and emotions.
Millyunz’s first forays into music were directly inspired by great American rock bands like Kansas and the Eagles (the first song Nate ever learned to perform being “Carry on My Wayward Son” by the former). However, Millyunz soon branched out and during the late 90’s began his punk inspired skating days. His love for bands like Blink 182, saw that his first days on stage were spent singing for several different punk, hard-core and metal bands. It wasn’t until his junior high school year that Nate began experimenting with Hip-Hop. By the time senior year rolled around Nate’s skills were developed enough that, at the urging of his very impressed friends and peers, he bought some recording equipment and got to work writing and recording. After hundreds of songs, and thousands of hours in the booth, Nate was ready to begin his career, it wasn’t long before Nate’s tenacity and skill developed and his material was recorded. To this day Nate has over 400 recordings with features from huge names like, PRS (formerly Tweet from R&B group next), Dizzy Wright, ModSun, KeVo Da KiD, 7-TRE, Joe Fressler, P-Nut The Artist and many others. Nate’s Latest work a mixtape titled W.T.F.I.M.R.D was released February 14th 2013 and will be a small but delicious taste of what his first album release will contain.
Nate’s genre of Hip-Hop is self-described as “Southern Drank”, this combined with Nate’s diverse and rhythmic flow leaves anyone nodding their heads as soon as one of his songs start. Nate has a variety of songs ranging from party bangers like “White Boy Wasted”, to easy listening tunes that tell his story, preaching his life and experiences. As a rapper Nate is both dedicated and meticulous, his attention to detail shows in his music, as does his constant emphasis on metaphor rife punch-lines. After listening to his work it is no wonder why he sees himself to be, first and foremost, a songwriter. However, song writing is just one of his strengths and after putting on shows everywhere from L.A to the East Coast alongside some incredible performers (Including: MGK, French Montanta, Mod Sun, Huey Mack, Honey Cocaine, Rapper DJ Unk, NaPalm, Kosha Dillz, Six Reasons and Skaterrman), Nate’s stage presence has grown to rock star proportions. The physical presence of the M.C has always been an integral part of Hip-Hop and is nowhere close to lacking in Millyunz’ shows. As for the future, fans can expect more shows, singles, videos, merch and much more. Stay posted for Nate’s collaboration album “Bluntwraps and Nightcaps” with P-Nut the Artist (Featuring E$Y and 7-TRE). As well as his southern inspired acoustic album with long-time friend Joe Fessler, titled “Hollow Body Hip-Hop”.
Nate is currently attending college at Minneapolis’ Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) and will graduate in June 2013 with a Media Arts degree in Entertainment Business
