Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Nate Turner.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Nate Turner: I was born to make music and spread this message.

The best advice given to me was probably…to stay humble, stay true to yourself, and continue to seek truth and righteousness.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, we’ve been doing some really dope live sets in NYC

Best punchline you ever wrote?

”May the Neters give us guidance through this black on black violence/ As we transform from niggas to gods, but who gone beat the odds?/ This Melanin’s the element to free the Gods…my music penetrate to ya soul!”

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

We’re about to release the official Mind Grind Ent. compilation album, ”Mind Over Matter.” We released my EP ”Giant Slayer” earlier this year, Lost FirstBorne just dropped his Official Mixtape ed. 2, ed. 1 was out earlier; and Proph Obama released his ”061987” last year. Oh yea, I also released a mixtape last year entitled ”The Runaway Slave.” All these joints are available at MindGrindEnt.com

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Perhaps a distribution deal…on our terms of course.

Any last words?

Big Shout out to the Mind Grind Ent. family: Big Sci, Shinuh, Prophecy aka Proph Obama, Lost FirstBorne, and Illicit Beatz. I also want to shout out all the fans, potential fans, and future fans. Much love and respect to all the true all artists, making real music. Thanks for your time.
