NF continues to exhibit one of the more intriguing rises of 2017, dropping his latest album Perception (Caroline) to the tune of 55,000 sales in the U.S., which sent it to the top of the Billboard charts — a rarity for a Christian artist.

To be fair, NF has pushed back against the idea of being a Christian rapper (“If you’re a Christian and you’re a plumber, are you a Christian plumber?” he once explained to Idolator), but his lyrics aren’t subtle about his faith.

While his flow is pretty clearly indebted to fellow Michigan native Eminem, NF’s lyrics are profoundly interested in his relationship with God, and what that means about his relationship to the world. You can check out his most recent music video for “Outcast” below.
